I've put an official hold on all base-building missions for the time being and am using my home planet as a source of exploration supplies until I also find my ideal planet. I'm not sure what I want - I read that building underground is problematic because excavated terrain tends to respawn inside of structures, so Operation: Dwarf Fortress is out. It seems like every time I find a promising location it either has murderous sentinels or constant storms.

But I've discovered the scanner upgrade trick and so every planet I land on nets me about a million if it has fauna. I'll continue hopping from world to world, earning cash for frigates and digging up technology modules. By the time I find a good planet I'll have unlocked enough components to make a really good go at building a base. I'm thinking about using a crashed freighter site, since they have lots of flat terrain between the pieces.
