They could sorta cheat it and just have it mark an already crashed freighter near the xyz of where the debris makes contact with the atmosphere, just have it activate a distress signal locater. It could also assign a key to the player that will give unique story when you check the wrecks “black box” at the pinged crash site (they already do this with main quest lines and missions like archaeology digs etc).

Would be a fun way to deliver new pirate lore.

The only major hurdle I could see that would have them shy away from this is, how often is the crash witnessed by Kyle Culver going to happen naturally in game? Are chances high the battle will be near a planet and does the debris get pulled towards the planets atmosphere or was it happy coincidence it just looked that way?

Would be so cool thouh <3

A history of space games, which includes No Man’s Sky, of course:

Argh, treating starflight with one sentence and calling it “following elite’s footsteps” even though development of the game began before development of elite. It hurts. I know it’s an easy mistake to make, but it heavily suggests that the author hasn’t played starflight. And then I have to wonder if he’s really qualified to talk about the subject.

Starflights planetary procgen is still one of the most detailed even today, and its approach to open-world storytelling through exploration has been copied a thousand times over. It’s really sad to see it get the short end of the stick even in a documentary dedicated to an in-depth treatment of space exploration in video games, especially when Elite, that essentially amounts to a space shooter, gets that much spotlight…
Incidentally, Starflight was called, and still is called by many, “the best star trek game ever made” (it’s not actually a star trek game, but you quickly realise why when you play it).

Wait, that thing is actually in there?? It’s not a video edit? :exploding_head:

If that same easter egg would have been around back in the heyday of conspiracy theories within the first year of launch, it wouldn’t have taken this long for anybody to find it. And then the internet would have gone Nova and its remains collapsed into a black hole. So probably better they didn’t put it in back then. :rofl:

I still have a working Desolation (2.62) installation and can confirm it was there then. Probably been there since the initial Beyond update revamp. Pesky Electric Sheep!

As @Argh said, been there since Beyond update where the new Anomaly was first introduced to us. It actually did not take too long for it to first be found and posted on Twitter as well as Reddit (September 2019):

I hear if you lead the Unigamicorn to a portal atop a rolling ball from an ancient ruin without it falling off once, it opens the portal :wink: And releases half life 3

Perhaps it was an easter egg to tell people that mounting creatures was coming

I found that a long time ago. I thought it was a visual glitch and ignored it. XD
