I wanted to avoid finding this stuff out on the forums, but figured pretty quickly it would be impossible for me to find without. So I found the location, and headed there. Amazing structure. Can't do anything with it. Haven't brought weapons.
Log out and into Canonn's PG. One dude there, he shoots the pylons for me, helpfully. But I can't get the key because I didn't bring a cargo bay.
Sometimes this game is a big disappointment.
And that's it for me with Beyond's latest stuff. Roll on the exploration-saving Q.4 update, eh.
I was exactly like you, unprepared. I had everything except weapons. I thought, nah, I will only need the SRV gun. So yeah, I was wrong. Do you know what I did? I jumped back to the bubble to get some lasers. It took an extra twenty minutes for the round trip and I was back in business.
The lesson is this: The galaxy is unforgiving. Be prepared for anything. Equip your ship with as many different modules as possible and be willing to go back to get what you don't have. If you are out in the black and you didn't bring the equipment you need, blame yourself. Suck it up and go get it.
