Is that a fucking tank? Oooooo nice! Hopefully I can blow some shit up.

It certainly looks like one. Sean has said there's no vehicles in the game and I'm going to assume that's just the procedural generation, but you never know. Some of the things in this game will take millions of people weeks if not months to find.

I can't wait to share finds. Maybe we should have a thread so everybody can discuss and share their experiences.

lol. Nice avatar. Is mine too subtle do you think? I was thinking 'it's full of stars'.

I think the "star" rotates around the planets, and the planets themselves are actually 100% stationary. Explains why every planet has an identical day length and stars don't rotate in the night sky.

Disappointing change for me, but probably helps make the game more accessible.

No, the planets stil rotate.

Do you have video evidence of this?

 

The planets don't seem to rotate while on the surface at least.

NO SPOILERS:

Just watch this gameplay. I've linked it to just the exploration part:

Also that OST is outstanding.



Currently Playing: Life Is Strange 2/FH4 (Gamepass)

What do you mean they don't rotate when you're on the planet? Can you be a little clearer because I'm not sure what you mean and why you think the stars rotate but not the planets. You're not a flat-earther are you? ;)

Remember this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e18jOzi3fGw

 

At around 45 seconds you can see stars in the night sky. They are motionless. Instead they should be moving like this:

Has any leaked gameplay showed the stars moving at night? I stopped watching leaks a few days ago so maybe I missed it.

Your sun orbiting the planet theory would be problematic with many systems having multiple planets.  The sun couldn't orbit all of them.

But how does that prove the planet is rotating and it's not the sun moving around the planet? This is why I don't understand why you think it's been removed. What proof have you that it's been removed if you're using this as proof it was originally there?

The planets are all bunched up in the same place. It's a huge play area, but it's not covering an entire solar system. IE planets are never on the opposite side of the sun.

The sun itself is really just a standard video game sun that's part of the skybox. In one stream a player spent a long time trying to fly towards it but made no progress. However things started glitching out a bit, probably from floating point imprecision. That's a good sign that nothing exists farther out. So the skybox sun revolves around the whole play area giving every planet an identical 24 minute day and none of the planets move.

It proves the planet isn't spinning. Since the planet still experiences a day night transition though, it means either the planet orbits the sun every 24 minutes or the sun orbits the planet every 24 minutes.

Since all planets experience 24 minute days and all planets stay grouped up in the same area, the conclusion I came to is that the sun orbits them. This probably only happens while in the planet atmosphere. Otherwise you'd see the sun flying around like crazy while in space.

The sun being too far away to reach is actually proof that the planets are rotating. It would have to move faster than a speeding bullet to produce a day and night cycle on a planet if it was indeed the sun moving and not the planet. Here are the reasons I know they still rotate. We'll get the obious one out of the way first:

1: Sean Murray designed it that way.
2: The IGN video was released specifically to show how the rotating planets create night and day cycles
3: If it was the sun rotating around the planet it would have to move faster than a speeding bullet, as I mentioned above.
4: You posted the IGN video to prove it's been removed so I'd then assume if you saw a day and night cycle on a planet that would prove it's still there. I've sat and watched a day and night cycle on someone's stream.
5: When people finally leave the planet, moons, other planets and space stations are not where they thought they were because the planet has moved.

The planets still rotate.
