First Beyond community event launched today with the latest update

I want to see it at tier 5 by the time I get on today, I’m counting on you and the Community to make this happen :slight_smile:

So, the “Community Events” are now just normal missions that you get quicksilver for. No common quest, no common location, no short story or at least a few words from Polo, just normal missions. I guess you’ll have to fill up those tiers mostly without me, then, as apparently I’m not missing anything by not doing them.
I did have a nice time though, being tasked with delivering 8 quad servos, which in my densnes I completely failed to realise what they were. Thought they were some trade goods, so I took the mission, then realised that those goods needed a bit different equipment to acquire than what I currently specialise in… :laughing:

I joined a mission but left because I thought I joined the wrong mission, they went off with someone else and I initiated a mission and someone joined. We left together and ended up in the same place as the two who left earlier doing the same mission but separately it was kind of fun, there were two others there also bringing it to six travellers scurrying around a stormy planet looking for Dino bones.

I wonder if we’ll see a return to events like last season? Maybe that’s what this mystery missions will be?

I noticed recently that I cant build comm balls anymore, are they gone? No more mass comm ball graves?

Commballs were replaced by the other thing as far as I know, not sure what they’re called anymore, never used them…

It’s possible that people in the same shard get the same mission. In fact that would seem recommendable in terms of consistency, otherwise they’d all see different missions on the board.

In any case, playing survival on GoG, there’s not much teamwork going on, for lack of teams :laughing:
One lone soul was in the nexus too at the time, but left before I had done my other stuff. Not that I’d have been terribly excited about joining up anyways.
The mission I had led me to a system practically neighbouring the system I am currently at, so I don’t expect anybody to get the same location. Which is a bit of a shame, because coming to a place and finding all the messages was kind of fun, and you could be certain somebody built a nice base to look at somewhere, even if GoG players never had any actual multiplayer during the community events.

And instead of the 24-slot alien multitool advertised by SheralMyst, I found this at my space station:


:rofl:

I had to gather 744 Faecium…I need a shower now. :nauseated_face:

From the main Beyond update notes:

Unified the functionality of the Message Module and the Communications Station and added a new unique art asset.

You will find it under Tech > General > Message Module (if unlocked/available to you)

Makes me wonder why ‘progress’ is platform specific. I can imagine some platform specific calculation, but why not just base it on all platforms combined, so you have a feeling everyone actually works on the same goal to unlock the new goodies at the same time?

PC struggled last time we did this…let’s see what happens this time.

I wasn’t aware it was? If it is, maybe my grand children will unlock all tiers of the current event on GoG. Maybe. :tired_face:

I thought progression on Steam and gog went together. You only see one for pc in any case

What’s the address

1 Like

I get that, I just meant the portable place anywhere you want functionality seems to be dunzo. The weird part is communication balls still show up for me in my legacy save in portable tech when I’m at my base :smile: hence my major confusion

You don’t want to know, that thing has less slots than the starting multitool! :grin:
Also, I don’t know the address. I’m not a portal guy. Never looked for a portal in my life, only ever used one in context of a story.

I did my first mission last night and recognised the player @LordMarkov jumped into my game (Purest_green). I was building a base and we fought off tons of sentinals and walkers before I had to go!

I recognized Purest_Green, but I couldn’t remember where from.

Thank you for the fun time…we made quite the walker graveyard. However, the mission was glitched for me; I couldn’t add to the base. I do hope you enjoyed the NipNip (with Faecium in case you wanted to plant them.)

I waited until you left and then built my own outpost to complete the mission.

I did have one question: could you hear my audio?

6 Likes

No problem, I didn’t hear your audio but I don’t think I had the settings switched on for it, I’ll make sure I have my headphones on next time.

What a fun happy coincidence for you two :slight_smile:

I reloaded my last save while on a Community Event. Reappeared in my old parking spot the Nexus. My QS event was gone and the QS one from yesterday was available again.
