I just bought Boundless on PlayStation and have been playing it this evening. I landed on a world and immediately started exploring. I found a cool shopping mall and was blown away by how pretty everything is.
But now I’m back out in the world trying to find somewhere to call home but the problem I’m having is that everywhere is little islands and traversing from one to the other takes ages.
I finally found one I liked and then realized there were no trees lol. I’m just a bit overwhelmed and a bit lost. Any advice would be welcome!
Thank you for all the kind comments. I took some of the advice here and decided to whack my campfire down anywhere. I found somewhere called Aurora and it’s near there. I actually ran into someone and they waved at me but I didn’t know how to wave back, sorry. I then promptly fell in lava. Oops.
Dont worry too much about your first base, think of it as a phase one to get you started, as it likely wont last long…
You will most definitely find its too small, you’ll find friends and want to move closer to them, you’ll find inspiration to build something bigger and better, you’ll find new planets that are prettier, you’ll find new challenges and better resources you want to be nearer to.
2 years in and i still do this weekly. And its great.
My best advice to you would be to join the discord of one of the communities here There are a ton of communities who are super welcoming to new players, and they will actually love it when you bombard them with questions (because you WILL have 100s of them )
XD same! lol! make your home in a big city for max support. Try to spawn near a megastore early in the game. When i first started, i was in Horizon City with a mini mall. It helped a ton! try to do it too
It’s not /wave on PS4. This is one thing that’s really tough about it being cross platform. People in game almost majority say “just press [insert keyboard shortcut here]” even after I tell them I’m on PS4 It’s so much harder for us console players lol
Trying to remember the steps without having the game open…On PS4 I believe you need to open chat with the left side of the middle pad, press triangle, select emote, and select wave.
Thank you all for your help. I set up a small base by Aurora. By small, I mean a camp fire, a beacon, and a crafting table. It’s not much, but it’s a start. I really appreciate all the help. It was very overwhelming at first but the game is so beautiful that I need to persevere!
