    Rigpig1919You will need 2 Purple tablets to explore everything here, they can be found in various places, mainly on the quarantine centre island or you can make them with your fabricator with an ion cube and 2 diamonds.

    Guile132If it doesnt unlock for you, I advise you to do every last objective in the lava castle base between getting pdi's and the tablets, like literally do everything there, go back to the rocket, save, quit, reload, and it should pop.
