Weekend Event

Rather perfect timing, having an impostor among us when a certain other outer space themed game is very popular right now:

Funny, i’ve been playing that game recently and though how funny the theme was and its coincidental parallels to NMS’s weekend story.

What if we have to choose as a community who dies? Ariadne or hesperus? Who’s really the imposter? The one blaming the other has red eyes.

did anyone get to and do the buried derelict freighter mission .

I managed to land on one of the landing pads below ground.

Cool thing is none of the nests had alien bugs, and just gave living slime.

But…the planet weather storms had an effect

Wait. Hold up. When I first read that, I thought he meant to say “crashed freighter”, till my phone finally loaded the images and its litterally a burried derelict freighter. I think its a glitch but thats awesome!

This buried derelict was right by the anomalous rift point. Where the dodgy gravity was

Also the fact that the normal planet colors were different in this location was interesting…preview of differing planetary biomes to come ?

When you get near the derelict freighter, they have a different color pallet set. Likely this was due to being in close proximity with it that the pallet changed.

Because it is linked, it tries to show a nice preview of the content linked, called Onebox. Due to the content of the linked reply/topic being a poll, it is unable to show this as a nice proper preview when clicking the ‘preview’ dropdown, resulting in html source for it instead. Basically the linked poll itself has referenced background code with it, which only works correctly on the page it was created on. The preview/onebox has no access or way to include the code functionality when shown this way.

I would not worry about it too much as the link is correct, so users are able to click it and be directed to the original post to see the correct content.

I thought this was a person who hacked a based in an attempt to grief people at the monolith. I was looking for their base computer to report it.

However, I was more afraid that I would get stuck without my jetpack, so I left.

Same glitch. But that’s why the final mission was awesome!

I assumed it was also and ignored it

Yeah i did see an on screen message about gravity being affected and jetpack not working, i was mainly close to paralell to the ground mostly sliding my way to the monolith, actually slid off it at one point.

I usually land a distance away and walk towards the marker which i did this time.

I got back to my ship and took off and then noticed the derelict freighter marker show up so flew cliser and pressed x to land and got sucked under planet surface and did the derelict freighter “mission” ie scavenged and got some freighter tech, flying out caused some collision damage to ship but nothing serious, then went to portal and handed in weekend mission at nexus, all good.
