An update this big deserves a restart. I immediately went back to first person mode, I can't see myself playing this any other way. Played about an hour last night - enough to repair my ship and leave the planet I started on. Haven't reached the first off planet-signal yet, I landed at the local space station to save for the night (but not before having a look around it!)

Not only does just about everything look a little nicer, everything feels a lot less clunky to do. They've clearly been busy over the last two years. Can't wait to see what else is waiting out there!

I'll have to have a go - maybe I can find my way into space...

Dipped back into this for the first time since "vanilla".
What a difference.
What a game!

I enjoyed it back at the start but really enjoy it now, to the point I'm scunnered I need to go to bed for work tomorrow!
Feels like a new game again and has that new game smell and excitement.

How are you making out? I'm finding the guide a lot more helpful this time.

I've been equipped to do my first warp for a while now, but I'm gathering some more resources first. Gotta collect those nanites!

Yah! I've finally repaired my ship and left the first planet! it's like I've finished the game - what else is there to do?

Just keep exploring and let the game delight you. My advice is to collect as many resources along the way as you can.

Will do - for me getting off the first planet is like winning! never really been into resource management but have always loved space sims. Dark Star - Starion - Star Strike - Wing Commander - No Man's Sky (and yes - have never played Elite).

Out of all the lovely things they've updated, I think I'm the most grateful for being able to fly around the curvature of a planet without constantly hitting the atmosphere before I'm ready.

And yet we still dont have east / west markers on the compass, or basic filtering of resources that have already been used / mined.

thats without exocraft being basically useless now in terms of mining stuff, or base building which is massively clunky, unbalanced in terms of resource requirements, a lot of the base objects dont line up in construction and you cant mix / match the prefebs / cubes with the wood / metal / concrete stuff...

and dont get me started on random multiplayer folks being able to steal your portable equipment or pull your carefully crafted base to pieces - some utterly bonkers basic multiplayer crap that hasnt even been thought about.

Dont get me wrong - the improvements are good, and the game is better - but ffs, theres an awful lot of basic quality of life stuff that needs to be done still.
