    Two of these are part of the storyline and can't really be missed, because they hide access to buttons you need to press to progress. As you go through the game you'll notice some buoys on the surface. If you follow the chain, attached to the bottom of the buoy, to the ocean floor, you'll find a cache at the base of the chain. You need to collect at least four of these. There are 5 or 6 buoy/caches.

    Sorry it took me a bit to edit this. The missable buoys/caches are at chapters: 20, 31, 32, 39, and 51

    Also note the cache in chapter 32 is slightly behind the checkpoint when you load in, just before you get stopped for the crane puzzle.

    And yes you can reload chapters as long as it's in one playthrough so DO NOT hit new game.

    AchieveSteve has a good video for this if you cannot find them.

    II RedDwarf IICan you do this with checkpoint select if you have finished the game and missed some? If so, do you know which checkpoints please?

    ZonkedJafDoes this have to be done from 20 to 51? In one go
    I've reloaded from check points and done them all individually and then loaded the next chapter up but it's not popping
    Any help would be appreciated

    Catatonic Nali@ZonkedJaf can't say yet because I'm still partway through my 2nd playthrough but I wouldn't be surprised. Some of the achievements here seem a bit messed up. The tracker for my Fuel-guzzler achievement got stuck at 77% and so far I haven't found a way to get it fixed.

    I apologize for no audio, as i'm feeling super under the weather. Here's the first 6 locations you can get this at. You get two to progress, and the other four are attached to buoys on a chain. Just grab them with the crane on the back of the ship, lift them up into the boat, and take the fuel.

    1. When you attach the new hull, you are forced to get one here.
    2. After leaving the new hull area, there's a buoy where you can get one.
    3. When you first get the submarine ability and go underwater, you have to get one here at the underwater door.
    3. After this underwater submarine area when you resurface is a buoy.
    4. After the long stormy area before the crane, there's a buoy here.
    5. After launching the boat from the floating city, there's a buoy right here.

    There's at least one or two more, like after all the ice areas. It's right at the waterfall. I think there might be one after the waterfall too, but not 100% sure.
