Let’s Play Surviving Mars! In this tutorial episode we will look at how to use drones effectively, how rc units work and how drones work with rc units to cover your mars landing spot in productivity! Drones not working? It may be a simple fix, check this out!

Welcome Home! The time has come to stake your claim on the Red Planet and build the first functioning human colonies on Mars! All you need are supplies, oxygen, decades of training, experience with sandstorms, and a can-do attitude to discover the purpose of those weird black cubes that appeared out of nowhere. With a bit of sprucing up, this place is going to be awesome!

Surviving Mars is a sci-fi city builder all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. Choose a space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for your colony. Build domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand your settlement. Cultivate your own food, mine minerals or just relax by the bar after a hard day’s work. Most important of all, though, is keeping your colonists alive. Not an easy task on a strange new planet.

There will be challenges to overcome. Execute your strategy and improve your colony’s chances of survival while unlocking the mysteries of this alien world. Are you ready? Mars is waiting for you.

    Its dumb that my drones can’t build a wire within 2 meters away from my drone hub!

    How the hell do I repair a drone commander?

  3. Eric Lopez on October 12, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    Thank you for this video. My mini drones stopped working and all my colonist died. So this explains why they stopped working because there was no resources

    Why are they neglecting 9 wind turbines?

    Hey, quick question. How do I load a rover back into a rocket?

  6. Ronny Djupesland on October 12, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    how can i select more drones at once? i keep moving my drones from one depo to another but i have to move one by one. and it’s so boring

    My drones won’t repair. I want to like this game but I can’t with as clunky as it is.

    Hi Jonti!

    I completely gave up on this game after ordering 50 drones, and having to manually reassign them one by one… This is ridiculous.

    How did you metal without people?
    I’ve been trying to left click, Right click, alt click, crtl click, shift click, and this game fails needing to command EACH TINY Drone ONE AT A TIME. They really REALLY need to patch in a mass select drag and collect Drone command.

    Hey I’m playing this game on PS4 and I’m doing the tutorial and I got to the part where you have to gather 5 metals with the RC transport rover but nothing happens after that

  12. Swan Oowee on October 12, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    Get to the point

  13. p p on October 12, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    How can i make my drones to do stuff automaticly again? Ive been trying for an hour now.. They all just stopped for some reason.

  14. Datkiddorick on October 12, 2020 at 1:02 pm

    I dont have the option to maintenance things help

  15. GearZ25 on October 12, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    how so you unload resources from the rc transport?

  16. Peter Knutsen on October 12, 2020 at 1:08 pm

    What does “Drone Load” mean? Too few Drones relative to queued tasks? Too many Drones oer Hub? What?
