NEXT Patch notes - Steam Experimental [POTENTIAL SPOILERS!]


Only things that I’ve read reference NMS News.


Oh wow newly added galactic map functionality. I wonder if ECSD hub is present now?


So it seems that after I earned 5,800 quicksilver I can’t seem to be able to get any more Hex cores at all…which is really annoying as I need 2,300 more to get the helmet and empty out the shop. But everything’s been pretty badly bugged so far…I was never able to get more than 25 cores at a time and then after every load I’d have to go back through the portal and return to be able to get 25 more and so on in spite of the fact that we clearly should have been able to get 50 at a time.


Wow that’s crazy! In my PC game there was similar debris out front, but very small, slow, and out of the way. I like how the abandoned station uses the old layout. Also noticed planetary buildings appear abandoned too, a nice touch.

I dropped a Signal Booster when I portaled in…

  • galactic coords: 084E:009D:07F8:003B
  • portal address: 003B1EFF904F

I’m still saved in that system, so I haven’t attempted direct-dialing in myself yet.


I just read that it’s like patch notes in a new format, with community call out.

With all updates since NEXT as well.



It’s a very nice overview at the end of everything they’ve fixed in a month :slight_smile:


Just wondering, did you make an exocraft? When I made one and scanned from it, it completely killed the hex cores till I visited the location the scan revealed and deleted the bay.


I know landing a ship near buried Tech deletes it if close to surface landing area(or did last time I checked) , building exocraft pad might also do this.


No I didn’t build an exocraft bay.

But my problem is not finding dig spots…my problem is that all I get now is Salvaged Tech.


I guess it can be considered News, although I was expecting it to show in the Release Logs.

Too bad I still don’t see my submission …

It is an odd place for it.


You were right! It does take you back to Euclid! So we now have a fast way back, but you’re screwed if you wished to stay in the Universe you were at!

Well done HG! Great update … lol

I had fun though to be honest, just a bit more work in my save editor :slight_smile:

See bug report here:

Fixed, back home! … and mind blown!


Over the coming weeks this will expand to 50+ items, including further base parts, emotes, customisations, exocraft, and more.

Wait, whut? :thinking:


Ooh, maybe that weird station thing happens if you reload? It wasn’t initially like that for me, but when I came back later I encountered the same bug.

I’m bummed that they’ve apparently taken away the ability to relocate through portals. It always seemed reasonable to me in Atlas Rises cause it was a hassle and required sacrificing your old base. All the Next changes made it much easier, but frankly the whole update seemed more geared towards a new “go anywhere” type of play. Seems odd to suddenly pull that back.


It’s possible it’s just restricted for those coming through the portal via Polo’s coordinates. I’ve gone through portals in NEXT in the past and been able to use galaxy map.

And those coming from different galaxies as DevilinPixy pointed out, don’t seem to arrive via portal and they also have no problem exploring the the galaxy from that system, which seems to be a bug.

Traveling through portals normally you can claim bases and even leave the system. Or you could before this update anyway, assuming it’s still the same.


So does anyone know why they changed how the quick transfer inventory system works? It used to be just a couple button presses now they want you to drag it over and drop it which takes longer. I used to drag and drop when the high-capacity cargo slots and such were introduced then I adjusted and just use the quick transfer menu, but now I have to drag and drop again.


Good question! Not sure why they did this for consoles, but it makes sense for PC players. And maybe it’s more optimized this way?


It could be just restricted for certain systems, like this event one, or abandoned ones. However I did manually dial up the event system from another portal and it still wouldn’t let me build on the other side, or put the address in my teleporter. I’ll have to try other systems, but I’m not counting on it.

There were reports of this from the experimental branch, so I rushed to add at least a few other addresses to my tele network before the patch dropped (all my home systems from other saves, and the ETARC capital).


Did you try warping to another system after turning in the intisl batch of 25? The initial batch on the event starter planet is basically a tutorial. You have to go back through the portal and warp for them to start showing up again. At least thats what I had to do.


Does anyone know since 1.58 can you summon and buy freighters in someones game?
