The new Subnautica website has been launched! Some things are broken, including blog post comments and links in the forum navigation bar (They go to NS2 right now). We will be fixing things over the next few days!
Go To Middle Hive!
So many commanders make the mistake of building in the hive farthest away from the aliens. It is so much harder for the aliens if you build up the middle hive first, and if your quick enough, most of the time you will only see a gorge building a resource tower. By the time he alerts skulks and they actually get there, you should already have up a phase gate and a few turrets. The aliens will surely be at the middle hive first, so that is where you need to be as well. Also, it is easier to take the farthest away hive because the aliens have such a long walk to get there, and when they notice you've taken the middle hive, that is pretty much all they will attack.
Get off my plane.
