The Lighter Side of NMS: Graphics Hiccups and Funny Pics

Reload time!

Me.
In my ship.
in my freighter.
…sort of.

Oh. And taking damage.

Warped to my Freighter and found myself crashing through and into the inside of it. :joy:

I had the same happen with the Nexus. Instead of slowing down, my ship flew at full speed straight into the Nexus, through the corridor, entering like a maniac. I felt sorry for anyone who was inside at the time and hope nobody got hurt.

I then bounced off and flew backwards into space again (-543u). I think I must have been knocked unconscious, because I had to force quit the game as I could no longer control anything anymore.

The screenshot doesn’t do justice to what actually happened. I all just happened too fast to get a good capture.

Very weird experience.

Went to do some personal exosuit refining and found this…

Both the Salvage Data had spawned and the Nanites… I don’t know the exact trigger or sequence to replicate this, but I think I may have forgotten some Salvaged data in the refiner, quit the game and on new game the glitch happened, but not exactly sure.

What a ripoff! I was told this was the real Tau!

New base, but a small problem:

I tried each of the words separately and “Luderica” was the culprit even though the game named the planet Luderica Prime. Had to truncate it to progress.

Now I am desperately wanting to know why this word is considered profanity and in what language. :joy:

Possibly the ‘Lude’ part? Could mean ‘crazy’ in Bosnian, ‘pimp’ in German, or as a reference to a drug (Methaqualone). I have no idea at times, just a wild guess.

From:https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Luder

Luder : Danish word for prostitute/sex-worker. But also widely used as a demeaning word for women, often used to provoke curse, insult etc. others both men and women.

He used to buy sex of a Luder at Istedgade.
His mom works as a Luder at night.
You’re such an ugly Luder.

Well that’s just ludicrous. :smile:

Someone forgot to mention that to the procedural planet-namer.

And I thought Luderica sounded so pretty. Still do.

It is after all an ancient and noble profession.

I’m never going to play Ludo again.

That’s not considered profanity by any standards.

Wouldn’t ever have heard of that, and german is my mother tongue.
“Luder” is more likely, as pointed out by Polyphemus, though nowadays that’s not exactly profanity in german anymore. You can call your kid a “Luder” when she’s misbehaving or even just very lively and nobody will bat an eyelash. The profane conotations of the term have by now been taken over by “Schlampe” (pretty literally: slut).

I wonder how Ludo from Labyrinth feels about all this? :joy:

I thought my base was meant to be a sanctuary until this beastie burst through my front door!
Someone cleverer than me once said, ‘In space no one can hear you scream’.… Well that’s because they could only hear me, yelling from the other side of the galaxy!

Funny though.

It would be so cool if just once in a while something might escape in our base on a planet or on our freighter (something we might be transporting) to either chase us or we try to have to capture it. Perhaps before it destroys some of our crops or ships or NPCs or friends!

Like wise it might be something furry and cuddly that escapes and starts painting our ships funny colours… :thinking:

…Or maybe we could save a princess in distress… Now that might be a good idea for a movie…??

My ship looked glitched when I loaded back into the game. Looked fine with camera view though. Had something similar happen before, where I couldn’t get into my ship at all, but the cockpit glass looked fully transparent instead of darkened, with a pretty cool look inside. This time much worse though, like one of those hobby choppers… without the rotor :rofl:
