I currently have two quests involving steel, which requires oil to create. I can't harvest oil until I upgrade my matter manipulator, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do that!
I've read that you can do so via the ship's AI, but I do not see any options either in the main 'chat' menu, nor in the tech menus. At my base I have the iron anvil, alloy furnace, and iron workbench, and can't seem to create anything at any of those that will give me an upgrade either. I've gone through the outpost to make sure that I haven't missed a quest or something there.
I'm sure I must be missing something stupid. Can anyone help?
The quest I'm currently on with SAIL involves providing Erchius Crystals to fix the FTL drive. These I get from the Erchius Facility, but in order to obtain the quest to get there, I need steel armor.
My SAIL commands currently include:
- Enable Teleporter
- Repair FTL Drive
That's it. I have tried talking to SAIL with 10 bars of copper to see if that would prompt the dialogue option, but it did not.
Someone mentioned in the comments below that my quest line is possibly out of sync. I'll investigate this more when I get home from work, if there's no other definitive response by then :)
