I'm put off wandering about too much as you risk dying from heat/cold/radiation and even if you find stuff, you run out of inventory slots quickly and can't teleport stuff to your ship from a distance. Also I can't tell what's valuable and what's junk.
Spoiler:
Do you get something to let you summon your ship later? That would be useful.

As far as I can see it's all got *a* value but whether that's for suit/crafting or on the galactic market is another matter.

To start off with, just make sure you're well stocked up on plutonium for the suit and jump launches and then you won't need to wander too far from your ship. If the planet you're on is a bit more abrasive, then grab some whatever the suit needs to deal with that as you go along. I haven't had one death yet in about 7 or 8 hours, it's not exactly normal Survival level game levels of survival.

Oh and you can get some tokeny things that you use at the buildings to summon, aye.

Bastard sentinels. Stuck on a planet with no plutonium and can't go a wandering because the Sentinels are aggressive as fuck.

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.

Sometimes the procedural algorithm seems to be channeling Salvador Dali. Earlier I had a planet with giant copper eggs floating above it, and giant cow-like things with tiny butterfly wings flapping around.

I'm only on my fourth star system and already found two other people's planets nearby. So much for the universe being so massive you'll probably not meet anyone else. I want to start again somewhere undiscovered.

I apologise if you stumble across any of mine. There's way too many spelling mistakes in my crap jokes for one thing.
