Reader Submitted: Game Review - Subnautica, Part Five
By Rita Mariner
(Continued from Part Four)
Once I have finished with the building I head over to the skeleton head, scan it and leave a beacon. If you look around, you will see something very special. It's a huge tree and very colorful., this is the Cove Tree and is the rarest plant on the planet. Only one exists and it is where Ghost Leviathans lay their eggs. Yet this area is the safest place on the river. You will also see the river has changed from green to pale blue. This water is harmless, so you can dive it without worry, which is good. This area is where you primarily find the next resource you need, Nickel Ore. Both Crystal Sulphur and Nickel Ore are sort of scarce, but you need them, so collect what you can find. There are also lots of Rubies down there, you can collect, if you need more. Rubies are used to make Aerogel, along with boosting Depth Modules.
You can now return to your base, by backtracking the river, following the beacons you laid. Make the necessary modules you will need with this need resources you have acquired, provided you have found the blueprints. Be careful to keep an eye out for Warpers and Crabsquids since they inhabit the area, sometimes more than others. Next part will cover what I do to prepare and locate the last alien facilities.
