The launch things requiring a fuckton of plutonium is also stupid. I suppose it wont be so draining if I get somewhere I can walk about and dont need the ship so much.

Yeah, you generally need about 25% of the tank to launch. I'd imagine that was part of the thinking behind the rover, a combination of a larger exploration area coupled with lower fuel costs. I'm hoping the scanner works inside the rover (unlike the ship) for seeing fauna.

After taking a break from the game I am now getting back into it. The updates have changed a lot of the game structures and it takes a little time to get used to the new style. There are a lot more things to think about, for sure! It seems tougher to find certain materials - I have been short of plutonium and so couldn't take off from a couple of planets until a lengthy search turned some up! - but this is good as it encourages exploration.

I'm looking to setup my first base. I have visited a couple of planets where the starting point was a available... but the planets all had atrocious conditions; certainly not the kind of environments you'd want to hang about in! So I'm gonna jet off to a new area and see if something better crops up.

>>> Calling NMS-playing GRcadians! <<<

1) Habitable bases

Have you found a decent one yet? I've visited about six now and they have all been on planets with atrocious environmental conditions. I ant to find one that has reasonable temperatures, an interesting landscape and a few (non-carnovore!) creatures. Instead I find barren wastegrounds, freeziing ice mountains or psycho guardians :lol: . I'll check I'm doing this right:

> Fly to a new galaxy
> Scan whilst in space
> See if a planet with a "habitable base" crops up (they're reasonably rare?)
> Fly to it

2) Boarding freighters

This is weird as I've done it twice before; but today I defeated a few baddies and was invited to dock on a freighter... and I couldn't find the entrance :oops: :fp: ( :lol: ). There didn't seem to be a way in! Was I being daft?

Thank you...

Don't get too fixated on getting the ideal conditions, your base comes with some kind of portal/shared storage space so you can transfer stuff to a new base down the line. I've literally no idea how it works but have got one in my base. I think the idea is that your base isn't forever, use one for a bit and then move on to a new one.

Ah, okay, thanks man. Perhaps I'll just try next one that I find. I had thought that you can build different sections on your base, though - I wonder what happens when you then "move"?

I *think* the portal allows you to travel between your base and the space station... I've seen portals in the Atlas pass room in the station.

I only found out tonight that I can switch to the phase (more powerful) gun whilst in your ship! I didn't know that you could switch between normal gun and the phase one by using triangle.

Oh, and I managed to land on a freighter. Dunno what happened with that last one :lol: .

There are portals for travel between space stations (and it works between systems too and keeps at least 4 or 5 in memory, it's worth naming your systems in a systematic way so as to remember why to go there). But there is also this shared storage thing.

Oh wow - this game has gotten way more complex! It's hard to think of another game that has been expanded so much since launch!

I've setup my first base. The planet has quiet a lot on it in terms of flora and fauna... but it is really hot and my suit's heat protection takes a battering during storms!

Next step is to go back to the Space Station and try out the travel portal :toot: . After that I'll look into developing the base.

Hot on the heels of the Path Finder update, Hello Games has swooped in with a new patch to address No Man's Sky's outstanding console performance issues. Patch 1.23 now improves performance by up to 5fps on PS4 Pro in its 4K mode, and also adds the ability to lock or unlock frame-rate on both of Sony's PS4 consoles.
