Newbie question about living on higher-tiered worlds:
I’ve only been playing for a few weeks. I enjoy playing mostly solo, occasionally with one friend, trying to be self-sustainable, so at the moment we are not in a large guild. My main is just about to hit level 20. My 2 alts are level 17, so not too many hours yet. I’m pretty comfortable spending an evening on a T6 planet, gathering, mining and exploring.
After exploring quite a bit, I’ve found some really beautiful spots on higher tiered planets, and when I come back to my little three-plot base, I really don’t love where it is at. I’ve seen some amazing bases on T5 and T6 planets. I’d like to make a big base now, and I was thinking about moving my home base to a T3, but I’m not at the game-stage yet where I can maintain a portal.
Would this be a dumb thing to do? For example, it seems like every time I need a little extra copper or iron I’d be using double durability to get it. It sounds like more fun to be on a planet where the mobs are a bit more dangerous, but maybe this would quickly get tired. Jumping back to a T1 to farm the easy stuff would cost me a bit each time.
For those of you who live self sustainably, and exclusively on a higher tiered planet, T3-T6,is the added inconvenience mostly trivial to you, or do you think is it generally a bad strategy to do this early-game (lv 20) before you are willing to commit to maintaining a portal?
Just looking for opinions. I know there is no right or wrong answer. Thanks!
