This was my first mission attempt. I hated it. This is also my first time with the update. My icons on the HUD compass are so small, I can’t make them out. And this is on a 60" Bravia 1080 sitting four or five feet from the screen. My Ship icon which has always been distinct kept disappearing.
The world the mission had me go to was the wrong one. I confused the icon with a base icon and flew down to the planet, and spent almost half an hour exploring some guy’s base looking for someone in distress. I finally noticed the mission icon when it popped up out of the blue and headed for it, only to notice that I was on the wrong planet. The world with the stranded Traveler was a hellpit of scorching storms that kept erupting one after the other, and they were long. It took a long time to find his crashed ship and it was only by luck that I noticed it.
He only showed up in the middle of a steam squall, which took too long because I could barely see five feet in front of me. The scanner wouldn’t pinpoint the buried tech, only show me the direction and some distance figure. Oh, and of COURSE it was a hostile Sentinel world so I was constantly being discovered and shot at. If that wasn’t bad enough, the graphics of the world were messed up and looked like it was cloaked in dark matter. I couldn’t see dangerous plants and animals which kept attacking me too. I finally found a buried tech module, but had trouble finding my way back to my ship because the icon kept refusing to appear. And then when I finally hopped in and took off to escape all the meanies trying to whittle my life away to analyze it, it was corrupt.
That was the last straw and I quit. I wish I could revert back to a previous revision. I like the new graphics and my GF1080Ti card handles it with aplomb, minus any raytracing that may or may not be present, but the way the HUD shows icons is broken. I am on 3xperimental, so maybe they’re still tweaking things. If they are, I really don’t like this new HUD (softened because too angry sounding, and I dearly love NMS).
