Asteroid 5251 is an adventure/survival/quest/puzzle/story map. You must use your mining and crafting skills as well as scavenge from chests. As you survive through epic settings, the tale unfolds via a browser based storyline. You must use written as well as visual clues to make your way through the map. Some quests and puzzles will confront your path. Some are optional.
Asteroid 5251 uses a unique gameplay someone recently called surventure mode. No mods or special textures are necessary. The player is free to mine the map for resources, build things, etc. but must refrain from breaking "man-made" constructs, or otherwise placing or breaking blocks to access new areas. With the exception of the beginning area, no blocks need to be placed or broken to progress through to the end of the map.

------ How it begins ------
For over 50 years the Taracon corporation has followed and harvested ore from the Mezzanine meteor field. Your followed your fathers line of work, identifying the richest asteroids and dragging them out of the field for safe harvest. Even with advanced guidance systems, flying an XD23-tug into the field is dangerous work, but it makes for an early retirement for those who survive. You were on a routine flight when you noticed a strange signal comming from an asteroid with the ID 5251A-32. Impossible you thought. It seemed to be a distress signal, but nothing could live in this field, and what's more it had to have a massive power source. Signals dont travel well in the field and this signal was almost 3 clips in.
Your first mistake was deciding to check it out. With no means of communication in the field, it's best to stay within the charted lane in case something malfunctions. They can find you then. Your second mistake was to spend a few to many moments gawking at the sheer size of 5251, and failing to engage the auto-nav. When a ship is hit, there usually aren't any survivors. When the field gets stirred up, navigation becomes a nightmare. Lucky for you, the crunching sound of an asteroid impact lurched the ship straight towards 5251. Of course, you thought this was the end, but it turns out it was the beginning of an adventure.
Caverns within the asteroid.
Signs of life.
