Many players of the game Starmancer have found that one of the earliest tasks they need complete can be one of the most complicated. The tutorial instructs players to command their first character to activate the S.O.S. Beacon. However, it doesn't offer a lot of detail on how to do this. We explain how this is done in the guide below.
