    Yeah and 200 million is pocket-change, considering you can make 10 times that by literally going afk for a few hours. Too bad this game doesn't really have a working economy.

    Just checked the update. It's been a while that i played the game, and today the new monitor arrives so it's a good time to pick this back up. Also i updated the NVidia drivers and D3 decided to bork. So my season 19 journey is going to end abruptly.
    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    I am never personally going to use this, but this is cool as hell.

    Man this game has really come a long way. I haven't played it since release but I may have to give it another go. Not like I have to buy it again.

    Is there a wiki or something that shows what's changed? Or should I just go in with what I know?

    If you havent played since release, you are in for a treat.

    The once dead galaxy in finally alive with a bunch of gameplay loops for just about every facet of the game, even building. And real multiplayer.

    As someone who loves exploration/base-building/open-world games, but hate the forced PVP that 99.9% of the entire genre has, is this game worth to get at this point? or would a game like empyrion be better?
    Kept away from it in the beginning for obivous reasons, but with the current deal on steam, i'm heavily considering it if it changed for the good.

    Do you know how it holds up vs. games like Empyrion and space engineers?

    Space Engineers building is a lot more complex. That doesn't mean you can't make complex constructions in NMS, especially since they added electricity and related gates, switches, etc. in a recent big update. But it's a lot more approachable from an inexperienced standpoint.

    Never played Empyrion.

    Space Engineers is a bit more advanced on the building level. Empyrion is good but no multiplayer, and still in alpha state.

    So 30 hours in so far, and i have to admit, it is far better than anticipated.
    Definitely worth the money, especially if you're getting it on sale.

    Love the fact that i finally found a ''open world sandbox'' that doesnt involve forced pvp thats ridden with griefers.

    Well it's a game where millions of people will exist in the same game.

    holy shit, i thought this game would be a nice, easy alternative to star citizen that i could play solo after work but its actually quite complex and dont know what to do

    i played it for 1.5h now on a PC with m+kb. i dont even know how to change camera between TPP and FPP. what else should i know to enjoy this game? i have a hard time just surviving radiation on a planet.
    general tips are welcome

    thanks in advance

    If you're wanting to switch perspective, going with the default keybinds, hit X, then Q a few times until you hit the gear, then scroll through that menu to find the 'Change Perspective' option.
    The Z and X menus are going to be your best friends for everything.

    And I fully recommend getting a controller, even a cheap one, for flying. As soon as I get in my ship I grab my controller to fly around, then when I land I just put it down and go back to using mouse and keyboard.

    Oh, and as for surviving, try to stick with more earth-like type planets. Rainy planets, Bountiful, Tropical, etc, until you get stuff like the radiation protection.
    And once you get that stuff, keep it charged. You'll always want to have a fair bit of Carbon, Oxygen, and Sodium on you at pretty much all times to keep your suite and tool charged.

    but what he's saying is use BOTH controller and m+kb. have the controller plugged in and use your mouse for exploration and then once you get in your ship, pick up the controller and use that. The game detects inputs from either one. I use the same setup with GTA for vehicles(controller) vs combat(m+kb).
