Thanks to the microsoft indentured servant forced beta testing of home users/slaves in order to protect Enterprise users from faulty updates or changes, I had no option but to restore a previous system image as all other recovery methods and repairs failed. I didn’t lose any data except that only after it was too late did I remember that my last external back up of No Man’s Sky saves was weeks ago. To return to a location closer to the galaxy center I used the portal – base relocation method.
Within a few seconds of coming out of the portal I was assaulted by one of the ubiquitous butt-head spider crabs and I noted that this was one of the last two species undiscovered by the planet/system discoverer and this was immediately followed by the last species flying into the view of my visor.
Everyone will have their own and unique version of the required protocol in such a situation that supposedly is nearly universally accepted by everyone else on planet earth follows but this is what I did:
Not knowing if the planet discoverer and base owner is even still playing or playing the same mode I chose to assist that player by uploading these two species but would not upload the 100 % completion of fauna discovery.
Although I am not interested in any form of multiplayer, etc., I relented in this case and left a brief note for the original discoverer (user name “blackiris”). The risk is that anyone else coming to this planet may steal credit by uploading the 100% completion. I am not aware if there is anything blocking a player that did not discover any species from claiming the credit for 100% completion although it seems that this should be checked by the upload module to prevent this from happening.
Not sure if this is even worthy of response but wondered if maybe there should be a thread with more formally approved behaviors but judging by the great variations in what others have reported to be the greatest
and most universally accepted plant/system naming conventions it might also be a waste of time. The problem is that this would also require some cooperative methodology to approve suggestions instead of individual players from adding their own ideas to the list and it may not be worth the effort.
