    There's also a machine like that (they both have a hologram of the exosuit backpack) in the space anomaly in the back by Iteration Selene. You can use theirs once per system, so that's two exosuit inventory slots per system. One at the system's space station, and once at the space anomaly once you summon it to that system. The cost goes up with each slot purchased, but it does cap out. The cargo slots are more expensive. I don't remember if I mentioned it earlier, but I just recently maxed out all my slots! That's a lot of fuckin inventory space.

    Also, you can find crashed drop pods on planets that can expand your inventory by one slot, but you gotta repair em. Usually requires ionized cobalt, antimatter, and I think either condensed carbon or sodium nitrate (I forget which)

    The helpful part of that is if you keep around those elements, you can sometimes find the drop pod data items on the market, buy a few of them (for usually much less than expanding space in the stations), and go jump around on planets finding drop pods, giving you more space to hold those things in a cycle (though sometimes if you're hauling around that signal booster and find drop pod one, you can only find one other drop pod on the planet before it directs you back to your original drop pod which only happens sometimes but still).

    Basically, if you've more credits than time, stations. If you've more time than credits, drop pod data.

    Also, I have . . . questions: I never finished the Atlas questline, nor the Center questline (not sure if they're one and the same), but my understanding is that there's some point of possibly no return and I want to know if I can just skip that and keep journeying through and keeping the bases I already have now. Also, other than the tech tree kiosk, nothing else in the Anomaly seems to be working, but the wiki says I get tech there; is there something I need to do to enable those kiosks?

    Iirc the rest of the tech is through the iterations standing by the kiosks rather than the kiosk directly

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    The only quest with a point of no return is the Artemis quest (the one that eventually has you reach the center, sorta), but even then you can always return to your bases, and through them whatever galaxies they're in. So it's not really a point of no return.

    Also, the story for all three of the main quests (Atlas, Anomaly, Artemis) is something I really loved and I'd highly recommend going through them and also searching for the hidden tidbits in things like the boundary failures and suchlike.

    Huh.

    So right after the update I had teleported around a bit trying to finish some old photo missions still in my log. At some point that seems to have taken me back into Euclid without me realizing it. I've been exploring for a new home site for a while now thinking I was still in my new galaxy.

    i just teleported to eissentam through the anomaly from my... second system?

    i finally got a decent run going! a couple of salvage jobs got me up to affording an exotic. eissentam should make life easier on random quest planets. should be making tracks but i got caught up on this awesome glitch planet:

    Also, the saga of my current homeworld continues.

    When I first had it, it was a 'lush' world with lovely red grass.
    gShaSHU.jpg?1

    Then right after the update it became a toxic green hellscape covered in eggs. Biome became 'infested'.
    ckL8hCb.jpg?1

    Their experimental patch seems to have tweaked it a bit. Now it's an 'Infested Paradise' covered in Living Ship egg plants.
    7UPLRDd.jpg?1

    I like this a lot better than the toxic version.

    I just wish it was an Indium system, and also had the cool glowy grass.

    Is glowing grass and being an indium system related? Because that's rad if so

    No it's just a new type of grass that seems really cool. I wish it was also an Indium system so I could just have my base on an indium farm and not have to portal around so much.

    Oooooh, I gotcha. I just thought maybe some connection had been found, which would have been neat

    I’ve noticed the space events pop up a lot more now. I had 3 in an hour, just travelling around a single system.

    I haven’t seen anything other than wrecked freighters and random traders in space events so far. The freighters seem to be the same models found on planets, including the storage containers, but you can’t loot them. For some reason these things keep spawning inside space stations and disappearing before I can dock.

    I think the explorable freighters only come from the scanner things you get from the Nexus/scrap dealer/asteroids.

    No, you can occasionally run into them randomly, I did last night. I almost didn't have enough inventory space for all the bullshit I found on there, but I managed (barely).

    I also was using some of those anomaly detectors (someone gave me like 50 of them at the Space Anomaly hub) to do a bunch of space encounters but the derelict freighter one was completely random

    This is gonna be one of the first games I play on the new Xbox, so I’ll wait to see what’s in the new update until then. I don’t know if it has an optimization update, but even if it doesn’t it already has a 4K mode with an unlocked frame-rate, and that’s good enough for me.

    Yeah, I started a new game to check out the patch but then I saw the xbox load time comparison taking it from almost two minutes on a one x to less than 30sec on a series x, and its definitely going back on the shelf for another month.

    So I left the game running while I went to get some food with the wife. Got home and the computer was shut off, probably because of a cat stepping on the power button (stupid fucking PC cases with the power button on top). Whatevs, no big deal, boot up only takes a couple seconds. But now No Man's Sky is deleted off my computer? I'm having to redownload it as we speak. No idea what could cause this to happen, that's fucking strange. I hope the saves are in the cloud, or else I'm going to be really fucking sad that I lost that save file.

    I should have clarified that I’m finding wrecked freighters and not the derelict ones you buy coordinates to. It’s legit the exact same wrecks you can find on planets but in space.

    I've seen them, too. You cant go aboard but I managed to shoot some cargo containers for resources.

    Is there any way at all to earn Quicksilver without doing multiplayer bullshit? I don't want to play with anyone else, but I do want a living ship, but if it's required that I play with others I'll just forget it even exists.

    You don't have to play with others to do Nexus missions. Just initiate a mission and start it before anyone can join you. But if it's a mission to kill creatures I'd advise playing with other people, as they can help complete it much, MUCH faster by spreading out and killing stuff over there while you're over here killing stuff.

    I think I got some quicksilver once for blowing something up during a space encounter, but it was a paltry amount and not worth trying to farm.

    The weekend events give a pretty decent chunk and while you will see other players there, you are in no way required to interact with them. Hell, even if someone joins my missions I just ignore them.

    yeah people usually build bases nearby with landing pads, and sometimes if it requires specific plants, they will have them growing there for you.

    I just want to find a planet with a super deep ocean at this point. I don't know if the new updates allow that, because when I last played, every ocean was a puddle.

    One thing I found out recently - in the ruins where you have to find keys to open a chest, the chest is actually highlighted when you use your scanner.

    Something I wish I’d learned on my first one, and not my fourth or fifth...

    Did some exploring the other night and found some neat stuff.

    LKfFVfm.jpg?1
    Found a Trinary system. On the map it looked like a regular indium star, and all the planets were indium/activated indium.

    5DXdExx.jpg?1
    Checkout a swamp/wetlands planet. Very different. It had these little organic huts occasionally. They weren't scanable plants or minerals, and were like Yoda's house in Star Wars.

    evPXAjx.jpg?1
    They even had organic lights and windows!

    s0J4pWb.jpg?1
    I also found what I think is my new primary base world.

    It has most all of my wishlist.
    - Activated Indium
    - Glowy grass
    - Pretty
    - Archive!

    Technically it's not a 'Paradise', it's 'Tropical'. So it has storms, but they seem so minor and don't do any enviornmental effects. It might be the first time I've run across that. Until now, if it had a storm, during the storm was hell. These I can walk around and the only issue is slightly reduced visibility. Seems perfectly fine to me.

    Also it has bubbles everywhere!
