The No Man's Sky Thread

I have over 100 hours played now with NMS, this game has me enthralled. I'm also having a blast with the freighter management side of the game. I've built my capital ship's interior into a very nice base of operations complete with farming, and I now have a large fleet of freighters running missions for me!

Still so much to do and explore here, for most of those 100 hours I've stayed in a local star cluster but I'm now out voyaging around the universe, building bases on scenic worlds along the way.

Yup, finding too much to do in this game.
Have to remember to go back and harvest, make circuit boards to sell.

These balls are some type of lifeform.
I too build little outposts when I find interesting places. Usually just power, couple batteries, and transporter for when I want to head back.

We are struggling with the same issues I see. 😅

I'm not dedicating half as much time as I'd like to it sadly, but it's amazing how they sorted their initial mess into such a wide and interesting game. My better half has been lost in it for months now (her first "space" game), and leaving in different homes in these semi-lockdown times we also discovered how good it works in multiplayer too. Meeting at one's base (hers usually, she has a multi-floor research center while I still build huts), flying over at the Anomaly and doing missions for Quicksilver or credits is a very nice evening pastime when we can't see each other.
 
Think I've broken a mission.
I don't understand the atlas & purge missions.
Purge mission is active, I don't want to procede.
Atlas is also active but thought I had finished with it since I can purge.
Very confusing.
Also, I have not received the atlas pass from the small-fry in the anomaly, and the conversation choices are limited to me asking for directions to black holes, atlas stations and one other thing I don't recall right now.

Think the Atlas mission is kind of an overarching mission that always stays active until you reach the centre. Other missions spawn off that. At least I think so - I'll let you know when I get there. :ROFLMAO:

I think that's currently bugged. Easiest way to get Atlas V1 at least is via a secure depot. That's where I got mine in my current save.

i just finished the Purge and I'm now in a new galaxy. A couple of tips (this is from bitter experience).
Before you complete purge, switch to a low grade multi tool and use a "throwaway" ship. Make sure you have repair commodities aplenty too. You'll see why......
However i also found that I can use the terminal on a station in the new galaxy to go back to the starter galaxy and vice versa.
 
I guess I don't understand the point of the new galaxy when you can go back and forth?
I've made it to the decision tree of choosing a new galaxy, then backed out by reloading a save, because I wasn't sure what the point was.

Hi EUS, not sure myself yet. I'm back up and running now all the repairs are done, biggest issue was trying to find my ship on the planet I was transported to in the new galaxy. The recall function didn't work (ship had thruster damage) and even when I got the scanner working it wouldn't display. Spent a lot of time just surviving and repairing whilst searching for my rather expensive and pimped exotic ship.

Eventually I managed to find an outpost, buy a ship and get to the Station, the recall didn't work at the outpost or the station. I decided to try the warp terminal (this was after logging off and coming back to the game next day) and got back to my home base in the starter galaxy, flew up to the freighter but no luck, no sign of my exotic ship. Terminal jumped back to the station in the new galaxy and flew down to the planet to continue the search. Landed at a minimal base (floating trade access terminal) and thought why not try again. Did recall and it worked.

The plan now is to explore and see what is different, the changes so far are subtle but I think its a bit harder, early days though. Main missions have changed too.
 
Hmmm. Free nex-gen upgrade for existing users, enhanced graphics and performance, transferrable game-saves. Next-gen consoles included in crossplay. PS5 uses controller feedback and 3D audio. They even manage to keep the VR working on PS5 using backwards compatibility. Pretty cool.

These days though, it's really just what you'd expect from Hello Games. That's a testament to how far they've come since the launch.
 
I like this:
Code:
Fixed an issue that caused the water horizon to appear bumpy.
I hope that means that I'm no longer chasing what looks like land, but turns out I'm on a water world.

Update is next month? Nice.

It is indeed, but I try not to ever take that for granted. Set next to other games cough developer cough houses, HG are so far ahead it's become beyond embarrassing.

That said, I fully expect them to start charging for things eventually. And I'd have no problem with that.
 
If someone knows, I'd like to understand how up until 2 nights ago my frigates were generating approx $30-$50K per successful transaction of their missions.
Since 2 nights ago, I noticed the payouts have been bumped by a factor. Now getting $300-$500K per successful mission transaction, whether trading or bounty collection.
Also non-monetary payouts (mats for example) have increased a lot.
Is the milestone my rating with the various species?
Something else?

Great, I only recently started playing again and discovered the circuit board $$$ earner here

I've tried all these farming money-making schemes, but tbh, I don't find any of them very efficient at all. The plants take time to grow (sometimes hours) and the yield is barely worth the time. Also, the way the economy works in NMS, if you flood the market with a product, the price plummets... so you have diminishing returns.

Simplest way to make money (units) in the game by FAR is to simply have three S class scanner upgrades on your multitool. Will cost about 1800 nanites to get, and that can easily be achieved, especially if you scan everything & upload it. Then also give your data to the entities on the Anomaly. Just make sure they're all adjacent to each other on your inventory so you get the stacking bonus.

You can make 200-500k per creature, and 50-70k per plant. It translates to millions per planet. There's no extra effort involved, you're just flying around playing the game, but you can easily get over 100 million in a day.

I think the Halloween patch buffed the mission payouts for freighters across the board. I think it's now possible to make quite a lot, depending on how the mission goes.
