Infestation and sentinel corruption on one planet?!?
Is that new? Purple translucent quadrped?
Yes. Cloaking device.
Has anyone found the backpack yet? Somehow I missed it and still a no-show after a whole day of playing.
I decided to just fire up my ‘Pirate Save’ & quickly investigate a new currupted planet without doing a mission or really reading anything due to limited time.
Stumbled across a cool little camp where I decyphered the 3 digit code & unlocked a multitool. This camp then lead me to a ship (that looks like a 1980’s boxy hatchback with arachnid fangs), followed a few prompts, barely argued with some corrupted sentinels & shortly had ownership of the ugliest starship I’ve owned since my poverty shuttle. (I’m gathering from what I’ve seen online they come in all sorts of designs… I just found a hideous version)
I’m kind of hoping the introductory mission explains things a bit more as I jumped in & just explored so am a bit lost to some it.
There is an interesting story here…this is an echo related camp…are these early versions of the Korvax merging with Sentinels? Remember them saying in lore that they screamed when they cut them apart? Notice that your sentinel ship ‘screams’ when taking off and landing?
I love this update for this reason. It advances the lore and fills in some gaps.
Oh, and the hand twitches.
What do you expect from something that’s literally called “anomaly”?
It’s all a bit hit-and-miss, this. It took me 27 warp jumps to find a planet advertising “corrupted sentinels” - and when I did finally find one, it turned out to be one of those with impassible vertical terrain. I passed on it, and I’m looking for another one - one that holds at least the possibility of exploration. I could still be looking a week on Tuesday.
As an aside, I discovered in my search that planets with salvagable scrap now also have the new corrupted sentinels, and they give you Atlantideum when you kill them. These planets do not, however, seem to have the new abandoned camps.
I just looked at list of bases, any system that used to be extremally aggressive can potentially be one. two of my base planets converted. They dont list it in description, maybe from space never checked.
I just found out - from the map, corrupted systems are listed as “dissonant” - in the field that usually holds the star type.
Ha ha ha. The corrupted planet I’m currently on has gravitation storms. When the storm hits, gravity either reduces, or switches off altogether. If you jump, you can leave the planet. Annoying, but hilarious.
Where has all the platinum gone? I need it for upgrades to my ships.
You can make some through the refiner. I think both geodesite and iridesite refine to platinum.
