I would like to share my experience of getting all recipies/blueprints.
First I would like to say big thank you to reddit user Ket for this information:
This guaranteed that once I get the quest, that gives recipie, I will answer it correctly.
For my endeavor I have chosen Gek systems, as my Gek vocabulary is the most complete one.
I started from trying to find so called “crowded” planets with many facilities and started to visit facilities just flying around finding them.
Progress was quite slow and I then tried to ask for directions on space station then visit facility, then once again ask for direction on space station and so forth.
Again I had quite slow progress and facilities were getting locked and that was forcing me to warp to other systems to continue.
Then I decided to try the same approach with trading posts and bingo!
For some reason different trading posts on one planet were sending me to the single facility on another planet, which is 30 seconds away and each time puzzle was reset.
So I ended up flying back and forth, learning more Gek words (in order to reveal ask for directions question) and learning all the recipies within several hours.
Here is the algorithm:
- scan for trading post
- land, ask to learn new word and then ask for directions to get ops center coordinates
- fly to ops center and solve the puzzle, stop here, if you’ve got all the recipies or lore messages
- jump to the ship and launch into space, scan for another trading post and fly there
- go to step 2
System’s coordinates in question 0803:0088:0800:01c5
Besides being able to craft lots of expensive goodies, there is another benefit to getting all the blueprints.
Once you have all the blueprints, the manufacturing facilities and operations centres stop giving you blueprints, and give you lore instead. You can’t see this lore anywhere else.
The three races give you different lore, so what you see depends on who owns the system you’re in. Each race will give you 6 to 10 fragments of story, but only when you’ve completed all the blueprints.
It’s this kind of vast knowledge you guys have that leaves me sitting here with my mouth open staring at my iPad. My wife thinks I’m insane lol.
If you’re going to take NMS seriously, you have to discard trivial things like wives…
…or babysit them, while they create their own obsession and join in.
“Units Recieved” is now a favourite giggle in our household.
Lol, yeah my missus is sick of hearing ‘Technology Recharged.’ lol.
I want this on my tombstone
This comment made me laugh quite heartily. My wife however, was not amused…
My girlfriend was the one that got me into this game after watching her play it so much.
Mines does too, but I got her playing the game and she loves it. She wishes she had it on the switch.
I was I had it on the switch
Or people who have not played nms my family just doesn’t understand my love of nms
I thought my wife wouldn’t get it, but she does and surprisingly she has been following with the ARG as well.
My wife actually called me a dork the other day. I obviously took this as a compliment lol…
Oh my wife does that too, lol I’ve gotten really excited over small things and my dorkyness took over.
My wife would squeal & throw me the controller when she got attacked by multiple sentinels or critters. Now she has the ‘mighty banger’ she simply blows them away…and half the landscape in all directions.
“Control! You must learn control.” Yoda.
My wife just doesn’t get in which way No Man’s Sky is interesting.
She would say things like: why are you always walking-breaking crystals… walking breaking crystals…? It’s always the same. (while looking at me like I am weird)
Then she liked how the Zinc flowers looked like, so I had to collect them for their beauty xD
She’s more into Wii games lol (1st gen)
Oh and wait until WT comes back… understanding WT for her it’s just mission impossible xD
just give some NipNip!!! lol
then she will understand!!!
I think you’re on to something there, maybe thats why my wife likes the game, and doesn’t judge me too harshly.
Haha this is so true…oh the time it takes to do anything in this game
