When Coffee Stain Studios dropped a closed Alpha for their up and coming game, Satisfactory, to the Epic Games Launcher, early birds ate the game and its diverse content up while they still could. March 8th – 10th marked the beta’s short, yet prosperous lifespan, but make no mistake, the game’s community was hard at work all weekend creating interesting machines and pushing the game to its limits when it came to exploration, multiplayer, and even building minigames, all within the two day timeslot the developers allowed them. Below are only a few of the most interesting, creative, and plain genius creations and discoveries from just that Alpha weekend alone.

“Secret location? who else dedicates their time to exploration? The cave systems are really cool and often rewarding, so many people get sucked into building that they don’t see the rest of the map.”

Simplistic Storage Solutions

Sometimes, you don’t have to travel to the edge of the planet or create enough iron per minute to supply every lumberjack in Maine with a new
The Stüssy Easter Egg
“I’ve found 3 and the last two were “guarded” by large versions of common aliens in either a cave or on a cliff.”–Wh1teM0n3y on Reddit
Many players, while exploring the expansive map Satisfactory has to offer, came across S-shaped crystals like the one shown above. This is called the Stüssy S and you may recognize it from the margins of your elementary school notebooks. It isn’t clear whether this is an intentional reference or an oversight on Coffee Stain’s end, but I can only hope its the former. There have been multiple instances of the Stüssy crystal found all around the map, with some even claiming to have seen upwards of four in different locations.
A More Manual Approach
