Astroneer new Rails update has made the game more fun and easier. The newly added trains will make things easier to transport the resources from one place to the other. But still, it is important to understand the whole operating and building of the rail system to successfully transport the goods.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how you can make a successful rail system in the new update.
The Rail System consists of several things and we’ll go through all of them one by one on how to pace it and how it works. The things in the Rail System are the following.
- Rail Posts
- Rail Cars & Rail Engines
- Railway Junctions
- Railway Stations
Rail Posts are the main parts of the rail system because without the rail posts no rail cars or rail engines can run because there’ll be no rail line without the rail posts. The main purpose of placing the rail posts is to create a rail line on the path that you want. The Rail Posts are of two types. Regular Rail Post and the Tall Rail Post. The Regular Tail post is at the normal height from the ground whereas the Tall Rail Post is higher than the Regular Rail Post. If you want to run your rail cars at more height then you can place a Tall Rail Post and if the height doesn’t bother you then you can use the regular rail post as well. You can also attach them together. It is not necessary for them to attach to the same kind of rail post.
Both of these Rail Posts come in the bundle of 10 and when you place 1 rail post on the ground, it will create a rail line and when you go at a distance to place the next rail post, you’ll see a white line or blue line or red line. These lines will indicate the length of the rail from the previous rail post. You can place the rail post at any distance from the white line to the blue line but you cannot place it on the red line. Place the rail line on the path you desire and you can even call the rail car on the specific rail post by pressing the button of that rail post.
Rail Cars & Rail Engines
Rail Cars are the vehicles that you’ll use on the rails. It will travel automatically on the rail that you have placed so you don’t have to worry about placing an engine on it in order for it to travel. But it will be significantly slower. If you place the engine on the rail car the speed of the rail car will be increased but if you are at the beginning and you just want to make your rail system work then you can just place the rail posts and rail cars on it to make it work.
The rail cars & rail engines consume the power and if you attach the rail car with the engine, it will tell you the total draw of the power. You can add six rail cars on the rail line attached to each other or you can add 5 rail cars and 1 engine. The total length of the train will be up to 6 rail cars.
The Railway Junction is used to divert your rail line from one location to another. You can place the rail junctions and it will divert the path of your rail car when you press the switch of the rail junction. It is useful when you want to park your trains in the station or depot. It does make it a bit more complex but once you have more than 1 train going on a rail line track then you probably want to use it.
The Railway Station is very useful because it has some useful commands associated to it. The rail cars and rail engines that go through the railway station will be checked on the commands that you have entered on the station. The station has Stop Mode in which you can stop all Uncalled Cars or Stop All Cars. The station also has a Loading Mode in which you can Loads Stopped Cars or Unloads Stopped Cars.
These were all the things that you have to set up for a successful railway system but if you don’t want to make a complex railway system then you can only use the rail posts and rail cars and it will just do fine.
Dead Space: How to Get the Flamethrower
There are a lot of different items as well as weapons that players will find throughout their gameplay. All weapons can be used to take down Necromorphs in some way and one of the early weapons that players can find in the game is Flamethrower.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the Flamethrower in Dead Space.

Dead Space: Chapter 3: Course Correction – Walkthrough
In this guide, we’ll be covering the third chapter (Course Correction) of Dead Space.
Course Correction – Walkthrough
The Third Chapter will begin at the Main Hangar Bay of USG Ishimura. You will get to use your suit’s thrusters to fly through the area. Use the Locator to reach the Engineering Deck before your oxygen tank runs out. Once you are in the Engineering Deck, use the Control Console to see the Diagnostic Report. You will have to refuel the Engines in the South, refuel the Engines in the North, and fix the Centrifuge.
At first, you will have to refuel the Engines in the South. Use the Locator and follow it to reach the Refueling Control Stations. Stay on the left side and you will see a platform ahead. Use the Kinesis Module to pull the Platform towards you. Use the Switch to travel to the other side. Kill the Necromorphs and head up the stairs to get the Fuel Station Keycard. Now, go back down to use the Keycard to enter the Fuel Management Room.
You need to use the Circuit Breaker on the right side and turn on the South Refuel Station. You can turn on another function through Circuit Breaker. If you turn on the life support, you will not have to worry about your oxygen level. However, the lights will go dark. Choose the one that you are comfortable with and then use the Locator to reach the platform with the refueling system. Once there, use the Kinesis Module to lower the lever to fill the fuel in the South Engine. Now, go back to the Platform by which you came here. Use the Locator if you are having trouble finding the platform.
Activate the platform and go to the other side to refuel the North Engine. Use the Locator to reach the refueling system of North Engine. Once again, use the Kinesis Module to lower the lever to refuel the North Engine. Now, you need to restart the Centrifuge. Go back to the Control Room to reach the elevator that will take you down to the Centrifuge. Before you go ahead into the Centrifuge area, make sure to grab some loot in the storage room when you come down from the elevator.
Make your way into the Decontamination Chamber to start the Decontamination Sequence. You will have to wait for the sequence to complete until then, you will get to kill some enemies. Once the sequence is completed, leave the decontamination chamber from the opposite door and enter the Centrifuge. Go to the right side to reach the zero-gravity area. You will have to attach two generator modules to the mechanism in the middle.
In order to join them, you will have to use Stasis at the spinning part of the module and then use the Kinesis Module to attach them to the mechanism. Attach both of the generator modules one by one and then go to the Centrifuge Control Panel to start the Centrifuge. Now, head down by using the elevator and go along the path but be careful of the spinning arm of the Centrifuge. Make sure to stay on each space in the path to easily reach the other elevator. Use the Elevator to go up and enter the door to exit the vacuum.
You will be grabbed by a Tentacle and you will have to shoot the glowing orange part of the Tentacle to explode the tentacle into pieces. Now, go back to the Control Room through the Decontamination Chamber to get to the Zero-Gravity area. You can use the Locator to easily get to the location. Once you are in the zero-gravity area, you need to use Stasis on the spinning fans and go between the fans. Use the breaker and activate Airlock 2 to open the other door. Now, go back on the platform and open the airlock.
Shoot the glowing orange part in front to explode the tentacle and go to the Engine Room. As you go inside the Engine Room, you will get the Flamethrower. To use the Flamethrower, you will have to equip it in one of the slots. Go ahead on the path to reach the other side. Go to the elevator and use it to go down to the lower level. Go right and shoot the orange part of the tentacle to clear the path. Go ahead along the path to get to the elevator. Use the elevator to go further down. Here you will fight a new type of Necromorph. Kill the enemy from the range because it will explode and then use the Flamethrower to take out the mini-necromorphs.
Now, use the Stasis on the door to get through it. Kill the enemies on the way and then go inside the Engine Room. Clear the room with the enemies and then go to the end of the room to see the red socket. Go up the ramp in front of the socket and you will find the Power Cell. Use the Kinesis Module to place the Power Cell inside the Red Socket. The Ignition System will be initiated and you need to go to the control panel up on the first ramp. When the engines are ready, interact with the control panel to confirm the ignition.
After that, you need to return to the Tram Station. Use the Locator to go through the Control Room and reach the Tram Station. Once you are at the Tram Station, board the tram and select the Bridge as your destination. Getting to the Bridge will conclude the third chapter and the fourth chapter will start.
Dead Space: How to Get Shock Pads
Dead Space has a lot of different puzzles in the game that players will have to solve in order to progress through the game. In the second chapter of the game, players will have to make an explosive charge and use it to open the path to the Emergency Room. To make the charge players will have to get the Shock Pads.
In this guide, we’ll tell you how to get the Shock Pads in Dead Space.
Shock Pads Location
The Shock Pads for the Hydrazine Explosive Charge can be found in the Limb Simulation Therapy. Players will be able to get to the Limb Simulation Therapy by reaching the Main Lab. Main Lab can only be reached once players have obtained the Hydrazine Tank.
Getting Shock Pads
Once you have obtained Hydrazine Tank, go back to the vacuum area and you will get to use the booster in the vacuum area as well. Go up in the vacuum area and go to the Coolant Pipelines. Make your way to the Security Station by following the Locator and then you will get to Research Wing where you will get to use Stasis on a door to cross through it.
Go into the Main Lab and the quarantine will come back online. You will have to kill the Necromorphs and then use the elevator to get to the lower level. There will be some more Necromorphs so, kill them as well. The quarantine will be disabled and all the closed doors will be opened.
Use the Locator and follow it to reach the Biological Prosthetic. You will get to kill a new type of enemy here. Kill the enemy and then go up the elevator and kill a couple of more. Go through the door to reach the Limb Simulation Therapy. Here you will find the Shock Pads. Switch off the shock Pads by using the Circuit Breaker and activate the door to grab the Shock Pads.
After obtaining the Shock Pads, you will have both the items needed to make the charge. You will have to return to the Security Station by following the Locator and plant the Explosive charge to make the path to reach the Emergency Room.
