Dinky deploys to the Erchius Mining Facility to get an Erchius Crystal and repair his FTL drive. Also, there's the little issue of The Erchius Horror.
In this episode of the blind walkthrough of Starbound 1.0 survival mode, I return to the Erchius Mining Facility to fight Moontants and the Erchius Horror while trying to retrieve an Erchius Crystal. Combat and tense “please don’t let me die” action abounds as I gather new weapons, shoot squishy Erchius mutants in the face, and avoid getting cut in half by beams of energy from the Erchius Horror itself. The Erchius Mining Facility is definitely a great showcase for Starbound 1.0’s story-based missions!
Welcome back to the Starbound 1.0 playthrough and guide! It’s time to push on with the Erchius Mining Facility. I fight my way through the Moontants to finally confront the Erchius Horror—a giant crystal-bound structure that sweeps its beams of raw energy. Next up: speaking with Esther at the Ark again as the Starbound 1.0 playthrough on Survival Mode carries on!

Afterwork Gaming ("Tonight, we game!") was created so that I can share interesting games with you all via playthroughs, walkthroughs, and guides. These can be for casual games, sandbox/survival games (like Starbound), or long story-rich games that require endless hours to play. Picking Starbound 1.0 first made perfect sense--the game has been around since late 2013, it has a ton of features and a ton of depth, and yet it's still something easy to pick up and play for a gameplay session. Naturally, then, I decided my first series should be Starbound 1.0 playthrough and guide.
Do you want to explore, fight, trade, and survive in space? Do you want to explore a vast, procedurally generated universe filled with randomly generated monsters, biomes, resource formations, and NPCs? Do you want to fight intergalactic evils and plumb the depths of unmapped caves and dungeons? Then come play Starbound! The game, now in its full release, is a rich pixel-based sandbox game. From a junky ship floating over an unknown world you build out a base, upgrades for your gear, and set out to explore the universe! Along the way, you build colonies, recruit crew, and find out that the universe isn't so empty after all.

From the Developer:
Starbound is an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game! You’ve fled your home, only to find yourself lost in space with a damaged ship. Your only option is to beam down to the planet below and gather the resources you need to repair your ship and set off to explore the vast, infinite universe…
In Starbound, you create your own story - there’s no wrong way to play! You may choose to save the universe from the forces that destroyed your home, uncovering greater galactic mysteries in the process, or you may wish to forego a heroic journey entirely in favor of colonizing uncharted planets.
Settle down and farm the land, become an intergalactic landlord, hop from planet to planet collecting rare creatures, or delve into dangerous dungeons and lay claim to extraordinary treasures.
Discover ancient temples and modern metropolises, trees with eyes and mischievous penguins. Make use of hundreds of materials and over two thousand objects to build a sleepy secluded cabin in the woods, a medieval castle, or an underwater arcade.
Starbound has been built from the ground up to be multiplayer and easily moddable. You have the tools to make the universe your own and modify the game to suit your play style - add new races, biomes, dungeons, and quests - the possibilities are limitless.
