NMS Guide-Through


Yes on the low-flying…same here. Scanning also fails to highlight POI. Like you said, they just do not render in very quickly. This is definitely a bigger issue than in the past. I thought it was just an issue for me since I have terrain quality set to high.


Been awhile since Ive posted here, i have been lurking and reading. I am on PC Normal Mode, still located at the bottom of the chain that “used” to be the ETARC HUB. This area has some Ancient Data Structures, S class upgrades at space stations, but havent seen very many exotic or S class ships.
And I am still using the ECSD naming for planets and systems.


Score! On a Corrupted planet.


I just landed on a new planet. It was the primary one, nearest to the space station. A frozen planet.

I placed my signal booster, and input (purchased) data for a drop pod. It found one. I travelled there, and upgraded my exosuit.

I travelled around some more, and decided to search again. Set up signal booster, input drop pod data, and it found one. On another planet.

You realise what that means? There was only one drop pod on the whole planet. If I wanted a second, I had to go to a different planet.

Nerf, nerf, nerf.


While I’m on the subject of exosuits, what is the current capacity of the exosuit cargo (high capacity) slots?

Mine is currently on 43, and heading for 48. I’m pretty sure it didn’t used to be this high.

I’m not complaining about the storage space - far from it. But it’s a bit weird when my backpack can store more than my freighter.


I believe it is 48. I think that is a big increase.

UPDATE: loaded up a save I have not touched since July last year. High capacity slots maxed at 25.

Very interesting to revisit. This is my Legacy save. I have not touched it since popping out my old base and heading for space. Here is where I landed just after NEXT

Here is that same place now.

Here is my awesome Multi-Tool

It was given to me by a Vy’Keen while exploring someone else’s planet after going through a Portal.

I have no base, no exocraft, and 26 Antimatters.

As soon as I headed into space, I triggered Dreams of the Deep and when I landed on the Space Station I was notified of new exocraft tech at my Base Archives which I do not have…


Ah, just think - we’ve got all this confusion to go through once again, when BEYOND launches.


I wonder if it will once again, warrant a new start…with 3 updates in one and being the most ambitious yet…it is just too confusing to carry on. I will leave this save for posterity and check it again once BEYOND hits.


Seriously, though - every time they’ve launched a major update, we’ve been pretty much faced with a new game. OK, elements of the old game survived - but the changes were such that a new start was pretty much required.

I have lost track of how many times I’ve restarted. On several occasions, I’ve deleted ALL my saves, and just started again. And every time, I’m playing a new game. Every time, it’s significantly different from the one before.

I bought one game. Hello Games have given me dozens - all different.

Talk about the gift that keeps on giving…


Yes. No complaints here. Skyrim is the only other game that I have spent such a significant amount of time with and even it pales in comparison. I have spent over 100 hours with it and I was blown away the other day when I realized I have spent near 1000 hours with NMS. And that is just since moving to PC in 2017…:open_mouth:
Of course, I know how many hours you have spent…because I have looked, lol.
Lookie what I just found. :smiley:


Well, you ought to know that I often fire up NMS in the morning, play an hour or so, then shell out, and leave it minimised, while I read the news, read email, or do other stuff. But Steam logs all that time as playing NMS, because the game was running. So probably only 30% to 50% of that time was actually spent playing the game. Nevertheless, it’s a worryingly large number.

When I look at it, I think “should get out more”. Except I do get out. A lot.

Retirement changes things.


Yes. Same here. I get up and do laundry, cook, etc…I don’t rely too much on Steam’s numbers. My Skyrim data only shows 77 minutes…not accurate at all. :sweat_smile:
