When NMS first released, many people reported great difficulty completing the Zoology milestones. They couldn’t find the last creature they needed.
Over time and many patches, either the situation improved (or maybe the players just got better). Whatever happened, reports of difficulties dwindled, then stopped.
Since Beyond, however, for me, at least, the problem is back with a vengeance. There are now 43 planets where I have found all but the last creature - so I have 5 of 6, or 10 of 11, and so on. In some cases I have spent hours searching, without success.
And on how many planets have I found all the creatures? One. One lousy planet, in 170 hours of play,
I’ve tried all the obvious strategies - looking on high ground, low ground, in caves, underwater, in the air, walking long distances, leaving the system and coming back. Nothing seems to make a difference.
I’m getting a bit frustrated with it.
What have your experiences been so far?
