How to Find Blue Essence in Population Zero

Blue Essence appears on large roots, which can be found in the cold biomes of sectors E10 and E12. These roots are very rare and hard to find, but if you go to these locations, you should be able to extract a lot of Blue Essence.

These large roots usually grow on cliffsides and hills. Though some roots are on the ground, making for easy extraction, some are high up on cliffsides and hills, making them very difficult to reach. 

Luckily, you don't need any special equipment to collect Blue Essence. Just walk up to the roots and press the "E" key to interact, and the Essence will go straight into your inventory.

However, since the biomes in which Blue Essense is found are very cold, it is recommended to equip a Thermal Suit before venturing out. Without the suit, your character can die very quickly.

You can also use Warming Stew as a source of food, which will not only satiate your hunger but also prevent you from freezing. When you have both the suit and the stew, you are ready to collect the Blue Essence.
