What new in NMS?

It’s my anniversary on the forum, not in real life. That’s in December

I noticed a sort of ‘new’ thing in NMS.

After following a teleporter lead to a (now non-existent base) about 250 galaxies away, I began exploring the deep reaches of space. This lead to my 2nd ever core visit & jump to the next galaxy.
Of course I’d forgotten that this broke things & I found myself with utterly broken EVERYTHING.
Ultimately, this lead to a different frame of mind & I became a slow traveller. I interact with knowledge stones & other finds but generally just wander in a given direction until I feel I’ve seen a nice sample of the world I’m on. (I hardly scan at all because the colourless visor image annoys me).
My pet, Hatsilly, is a large ridable creature now so I just plod along watching the world go by. This slow wandering makes random finds, like freighter wrecks quite awesome as they don’t ‘pop-in’ but rather appear out of the gloom. Quite cool.
Having never really ridden the animals until now much I missed a useful bit of info:
When riding, angry Sentinel drones just follow & don’t shoot. It’s like they hate Travellers yet preserve all other life & won’t risk shooting the creature.
Not sure if this means anything…

Is the anomaly working again for anyone else? I just hopped in to grab some blueprints and could see people again. Havent tested this more than once though. Couldnt see any posts or comments on threads about this anywhere so I thought id ask / report here
EDIT: I’ve visited the anomaly a few more times, and seen players every time. Looks like HG fixed whatever was broken!

Mrs Mad-Hatter saw some fellow travellers (PS4 crossplay off) on board the Anomoly earlier.
Looks like they’ve sorted the MP issue.

100% just to help fix that anomaly glitch, unlike what some other people were thinking.

I’ve just been to the anomaly to check. The responses I got from Ares and Helios were the same ones I usually get.

I experienced the same thing a while back. Either the start or end of the 2nd expedition, I can’t quite remember. The responses were like that for a day or two, but eventually reverted to normal.

It has been doing this to me if I join my friends game. When we leave the group it goes back to normal. I haven’t checked when he joins my game so there may be more to the trigger.

Edit: tonight it didn’t lock me out we created a group. Now I’m not sure what triggers it.

Oh right, I used to get this a lot back when Beyond dropped, I used to think that the NPC’s had certain days for events etc. Then I realized its probably just a dialogue bank.

Thanks for all the input. This is the first time I have encountered this. Was not in a group or anything. Was thrown out of the back of the Anomaly on my next visit. That has happened twice lately. Maybe a crowded lobby is a problem? Maybe he actually was tired and all the modules were sold out. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
