When I was a young guy, just starting out, I didn’t have a lot of money. But I had some engineering skills and knowledge.
I would buy scrap cars for next to nothing, and fix them up. Sometimes I would have as many as three of the same model - I would take the engine from one, the gearbox from another, and the back axle from the third. Having taken the parts I wanted, I would sell on the used donor vehicles as scrap, and get back nearly as much money as I paid for them. My neighbours must have hated me - my driveway looked like a junkyard, but I always had a nice car. And they were virtually free. The only real cost was my own labour.
Now I am not a young guy any more. And you can’t really do that sort of thing with modern cars anyway. They’re not designed to be repaired, they’re designed to be replaced.
But the idea has stayed with me. I’ve always been a maker, and a repairer. So the idea of repairing crashed ships in No Man’s Sky resonates very strongly. It’s a part of the game I really enjoy. It’s probably cheaper, and certainly easier, to just buy the ships you want. But, for me, that’s not the point. Restoring crashed ships is fun.
So this is the crashed ships thread. Please feel free to talk about how to find them, how to fix them, and the things you’ve done with them. Share pictures of the ones you have, and the ones you didn’t bother with.
Save the Galaxy. Care for your environment. Recycle those ships!
