Combining the utility of a mech with the peaceful experience of starting a farm, the world of light year frontier it is full of mystery and wonder. Add new plants to your harvest as you travel through the planet’s environments, uncovering ancient secrets and making new friends along the way. Establish your presence in harmony with nature, using technological research to create a sustainable and successful farm.
Building your new home
Build your home however you see fit, starting with a basic set of plans for your farm plots and other utility-focused buildings. After collecting new materials on your adventures, you can research more structures to add to your home, using new technologies to expand your farm and upgrade your mech. On top of that, you can spruce things up by decorating your house with things like different color schemes and fences! Not bad for a house in a new range.
Along with the core parts of your farm, your construction research will also advance into more complex functions such as material processing and farming. When all of these pieces come together, it becomes a well-managed plot of land, making sure you get the most out of your day without having to worry about basic chores.
Farming the alien fields
Using your environment is key to starting a good farm! Collect alien seeds as you explore the wilds of this new planet. Start by creating your basic farming plot, use the Seed Shooter to sow the seeds, and water the plot for your first harvest. With enough research, you’ll gain access to larger plots, fertilizer, and other technology to help grow a high-quality, sustainable field.
Occasionally, the planet’s climate will work in your favor through heavy rains, though severe weather can also negatively affect and even damage your crops. Each plant has different growing conditions and needs, so be sure to keep an eye on their health! Once matured, these exotic plants can be sold or used as component materials. These components can be crafted into mechanical modules, buildings, and more.
Leaving towards the horizon
Beyond your landing site, you will find a vibrant world. Although you only start with basic bipedal movement and jump boosters, your robot can cover a great deal of ground, traveling through environments that have their own distinctive weather, flora, and fauna. While your legs may not be able to navigate all of the environments on their own, after investigating you will gain access to more transport modules. Pick up some treads or give your boosters some extra power and head back into the wild depths!
However, there is more to this planet than just nature; nestled in the terrain, you will come across ancient structures that hold untold secrets. Your investigation will find new ways to learn more about the origin of these structures, as well as how to unlock the barriers that seal them. What is below the surface?
