- Ensure the terrain is terraformed to your plans before placing foundations; you cannot place terraforming beacons within a 250 meter radius of buildings.
- You cannot place a building (empty foundation), then deconstruct it immediately thereafter. You have to fully construct it first.
- Start with terraforming. You can do this either by a predefined plan (created on the spot with the terraforming window) in conjuction with a terraforming beacon, or you can use specific charges depending on the terraforming you'd like to perform.
- Build a terminal.
TOTEST: using manual terraforming within 250 meters of foundations
