NMS Sentinels Update Discussion

I am hearing new music? Yes, when in your settlement.
Each new companion slot is 20,000 nanites




Plasma Launcher


It sounds good!
It feels good!
I like it!

NOTICE
To start the A Trace of Metal quest, warp by ship to the system where you settlement is. If you are already there, warp away and then back again. You should receive a radio comms from your settlement.
There is definitely an issue (for me) when installing the Hardframe Legs. It seems there should be another attack on the settlement but that is not happening and so I cannot get the Hardframe Engine. This might be due to my settlements not being maxed. It could also be a glitch…will update this.

This looks great! Any idea what the ETA is?

Perhaps the Flamethrower will be officially added to the game with its own buffs?

A number of new MT weapons and abilities like


With the added ability to hold more MTs, we can now make a variety of specialized MTs for different situations.
And don’t forget to grab all the dropped containers after and during battle. They can recharge your shields and some contain a new type of glass that can be broken down into usable upgrades and sellable components.
Glass…sentinels…

As soon as someone figures out how to launch the new story-driven missions, please post. Does your settlement need to be maxed?
Love the new music in the settlements…
Edit: I think my settlement is experiencing a glitch. Perhaps we should already be under attack, hence the new music and the fact that all of my settlers are running to hide…but no sentinels…

I have begun exploring the new lore. Should we start another topic for that? Patch notes say they are extensive…
Hint: Override Code 4R1ADN3

Yeah sure, don’t see why not. Can keep this topic mostly for hype and general discussion for the release.

Just loaded up nms and tried to do the new expedition, but it says “completed” and and won’t load a game. Have they not started it yet?

Thank you! I couldn’t get the webpage to scroll (firefoox) so I couldn’t read anything about it.

Have you tried the SPACEBAR, which should move the web page to next section in pretty much any browser? SHIFT + SPACEBAR to change direction

In case anyone else experiences this:
I could not get the A Trace of Metal quest to activate at my settlement. After exhausting all other normal options, warping to another system finally triggered the quest.

Looking forward to this - in about 3.5 hours after it finishes downloading.

Someone left 999 Handfuls of cogs in my office, a mess! And now who put a frigging red triangle in front of my door!! … Oh wait. That’s the sentinels! Attack!
