NMS Fractal

Installing Microsoft VC redistributable with this update. I will leave that for someone else to explain :sweat_smile:

Interesting…I don’t see the relationship to the snowflake.

I see the tie between Snowflake and the title “Fractal”, but I don’t see how that ties to an expedition titled Utopia at all.

I still haven’t understood how the word “Endurance” tied into the frieghter update either so, maybe I’m just dense :man_shrugging:

Perhaps the snowflake in reference to the new ship. It looks surprisingly similar to the ESB snowspeeder, which also skimmed across the surface.

The snowflake is obviously representative of the updates title. Just why the update was called that I can’t tell. Even less after reading the patch notes. Just calling it “Utopia” would have seemed more appropriate.

  • Introduced a significant optimisation for all platforms when loading large numbers of bases within a single system.

Are we inching towards the ever coveted cities?

So obviously this Expedition is testing the new opt for many bases by getting us to build on the same planets in one system. I have MP on but have encountered very few players. Very unusual for an expedition. I know they are out there. So many comms at the first waypoint then poof! Where is everyone?

I don’t know where they are but I can come online in Steam now (Europe close of business)

The 3rd planet is rough. Hilly with angry sentinels.

Oh no! I just saw your invite as I left the game. :laughing: I will be back. Gotta grab some lunch and take care of a few things. NMS has always heated my PC up but its on fire today. :laughing: So much heat!

Much better

That redistributable is causing issues in wine it seems

What, the VC redistributable? I’d expect Vine to have those installed already…

Sigh. And yet again … Low chance I complete this expedition too. :frowning:

BTW, it’s interesting that the “A” letters in FRACTAL are the Atlas glyph.

… And the sentinel attack ships can fly right through mountains. Once your ship is under attack, you can’t land. Formations of enemies come out of the ground, shoot you, and disappear into a mountain. Impossible.

It is installed but I think the problem resides in GOGgalaxy 2. That doesn’t work very well on wine. And valve won’t help there :wink:
