Not sure what you're playing on but sprint is shift on PC.notrobot wrote:Ah yes I hate those guys. Wish there was a run button. The jetpack is annoying and tends to just cause me more damage as I slam myself into the ground with it. I think you can upgrade it later but it starts off a pain in the arse.
Well today I fed minerals to a bouncing pineapple. It seemed to like them as it had a smiley face over its head afterwards. I'm not sure if I achieved anything there besides making a pineapple with a flower growing out of its head momentarily happy, but that's something isn't it.
I found a better abandoned ship with more cargo space and nicked it, though I had to fix most of it, and now I'm happily warping between solar systems when I can find the fuel. Got a bit killed up by space pirates though. Damn those guys.
I didn't discover it for ages but to traverse long distances on foot, I find sprinting until your sprint meter is nearly dry, then jetpacking covers vast distances quickly and by the time Jetpack is depleted, the sprint is full again.
Handy when cute wee beasties you have named "willneverhurtme" suddenly turn on you!
