I want to make sure Sean Murray has enough money to buy another bag full of lies.

Imagine how much (more) money Hearthly will spend on cars if the local dealers just start slapping 'XBox One X Enhanced' stickers on them.

I got it in a recent sale, tried it for the first time gateau.

Well, Starting on a planet which appears to have no oxygen resources findable using the scanner was... Not the best start.

So far Urr not really grabbed me. Just seems a little fiddly. And then I travelled to a copper deposit on my map with my newly made copper miner...
There was no copper. Only sadness and rock.

Did you dig through the rock? Sometimes it's underground.

By the time I was done with it there was a veritable Swiss cheese style crater, no energy in my copper miner and a perplexed Dave.

13+ hours in now and still loving it.

The pace and style of play is perfect for me and Harrison to play through it together - big bonus points for that.

I'm getting a bit peeved with bits that feel a lot like repeated grind work, but that's balanced against tons of fun exploration.

I finally got my base rebuilt (as of 1.53, at least, the mission guidance to get it built again is straightforward.) I'd like to get my farm up and running again to make money, as frigates are mad expensive and I want a fleet. Another thing I want to do is build the three types of upgraded hyperdrive, as I believe you get more exotic planets in those star systems.

I started this again although having played thirty odd hours of it previously the changes are great but the the familiar grindy stuff is sapping my will to continue a bit. Anyone who's playing it for the first time on this version has definitely done it right.

It's almost as if preordering games for £50 is a bad idea.

Plenty of people bought NMS before 1.5 not on preorder.

But the only way to avoid this would have been to not only not preorder this game that I really liked the look of and really wanted to play but then also avoid playing it for two full years just in case it eventually got even better. I'm hardly going to adopt that as a policy. Also I really enjoyed the time I spent with it, sold my original copy (that I'd preordered for £39) for £25 and then bought it again for £9 when the last big update came out.

Another big patch
https://www.nomanssky.com/2018/08/next-patch-1-55/

Some notable balance changes:

* Slightly increased the cost of launch fuel, but made one canister entirely refill the thrusters
* In normal mode, slightly reduced the base rates of hazard and life support fuel usage
* Slightly reduced the radius at which Sentinel drones will investigate players
* Reduced the time required to scan discoveries with the Analysis Visor
* Increased the recharge rate of the jetpack when onboard a Space Station
* Since the release of No Man’s Sky NEXT, farm plants have grown in real-world time (rather than game time), allowing farms to continue growing while you are away from the game. As a consequence, adjusted farming times + prices.

Lots of people peeved about the farming price nerf.

How much is the nerf? I did notice the farming time was wallclock time now, and figured that was OP compared to how it used to be. Frigate missions are the same. In some ways this is preferable, it means I could log on once per day and (pre-nerf) make ~10M in circuit boards and living glass.

It's a pretty big nerf. It makes sense because otherwise you just gather stuff that's grown while offline and sell it for a fortune.

The main reason for it was because NEXT allows you to have as many farms as you like, I think.

Saw this on Reddit. Hadn't realised such fancy base builds were possible. Really do need to spend some proper time with this game. I've always stopped to play something else before it's clicked.

:this:

It just seems to take so long to really get going, which I appreciate is the vibe it's going for in many regards, and I did like a lot of what it seemed to be going for. There's probably a hump to get over whereby you don't just feel like you're mining rocks for oxygen to be able to carry on breathing, but I never got over that hump.

It's the kind of game that had it existed when I were a teenager, I'd probably have lost myself in for weeks on end during school holidays, vying for time only with masturbation.
