I guess no one’s gonna care about the rest of my screenshots from 1.3, but anyways, here we go.
Yeah, apparently “lush” worlds got fixed with 1.5. Here’s how one of them looked in 1.3:
Reminded me more of a desert than a lush world. There were some trees around, but not too many.
The night view of the nebula close to the system though was stunning:
Giant space bees:
And again, actual birds!
Unfortunately, this planet had so many different creatures while they were that rare that I gave up on finding them all after a few hours.
The next (glad that that’s over now) planet I visited was a waterworld - a frozen one:
The underwater scene looked accordingly cold:
And the view wasn’t that much heartwarming, either:
… or was it?
Funnily enough, this planet had no creatures whatsoever, which is why I didn’t stay for very long.
The following planet was a radiated one:
With interestingly shaped megaliths scattered around its surface:
There were some … let’s call them “firebirds”:
I hate it when this happens:
Once I scanned all creatures there, I went ahead to the next planet.
Which looked almost like a lava world seen from space:
But up close, it was more like a desert than a lava world:
Always nice to find some communication towers to get to the nearest outpost quickly:
On my way toward it I came across this crashed freighter (seriously, this model needs to be investigated - there aren’t any other crashed freighters around other than that type):
At the outpost I set up an exocraft pad and began exploring the planet. First thing I found were these giant … Dragons!
And this one’s a first for me as well - I found Radnox on frozen planets before, but not on a hot one! It was partly melted to the ground:
Their glow was beautiful. Even more so during the night:
Impressive rocks were floating around:
And a small opening at some rather large cliffs:
Again, the most astonishing thing I found were these resource deposits. I call them Guardians, because of their unusual shape:
Bear in mind that we most probably won’t see any of those deposits after 1.5 hits. They were integrated into the ground and have to be mined with terrain manipulators. So enjoy these images of rarely seen deposits - we’ll likely won’t find them in 1.5 ever again.
Yet I’m sure we’ll find a lot of other, equally astonishing stuff.
Two more similarly large posts are incoming, then I’m done with my 1.3 screenshots. The last planet I’ve been on (interestingly enough) was a “temporary” one - where I encountered the lore of the Boundary Failures.
