I am at a point where I need to find rare nanites and reverse engineer them. Where do these bugs hang out anyway? I haven't seen a single one.

The wasteland usually has quite a few nanites in it. The make take a little time to spawn though, so keep an eye on that area.

If you have the quantum power pack from the Limited Edition, I believe that the suit enables you to scan for collectibles. So, try using the suit to look for nanites?

Hope this helps.

i think the collector's helper (or whatever it is called) LTR will show nanites on map too. Haven't got my game yet, but I saw a demo of that in some videos.

I've found a few in the wasteland. I'm guessing that is where they spawn, might elsewhere too I don't know yet.

I'm wondering where you find the little crystals at. Does anyone know where to find them? I saw the rage one at the bot emporium but are they out there somewhere for me to collect?

Phantom, try the wasteland. In most of the demo vids they showed, that's where they had plain crystal plants growing. Take a few as default, then plant those. Influence them but leave a few plain for increasing your amount. Rinse and repeat ^^ I wouldn't bet on being able to change the plants after adding an emotion.

There are a ton of nanites and quite a few crystal plants in the wasteland area. It is quite big though, so the Collection Helper LTW is very useful to point you to directly where they are.

Okay found the nanites and crystals, however, I don't have the option of collecting them or picking them up. I can charge them or neutralize them but that's it. How do I get them back home?

The nanites are like bugs, you need to click on the right place on the ground and select "catch".

The crystal flowers are like plants, and you have to wait until they are at the "harvest" stage before you can pick the flowers. You can also charge a plant multiple times. If you hover over it, it might say something like "Love 27%" and you can charge it up to 100% and then harvest when it's ready.

Hope that helps.

Well the crystal you collect and buy are like apples in the sims 3. If you have a crystal in your inventory you can click on it and well show a few choose depend on the crystal type. I got the choose of 'plant' 'Plant Many' now. I don't remember if you need normal of mood related to it or if it doesn't matter. So try both and just in case someone is embarrassed about not knowing I learn it from trial. Hope that help HappyPhantom and agstah.

If you wanna make high level trait chips for your own plumbots, like sentience chip. The easiest way is buying another plumbot then take the chip (you can inspect chips of the bot before buying it).
Ps. You can find crystal flowers in wasteland.
