I do actually have a quick question for any veteran of NMS. I can't get the hang of ship to ship combat, the ship controls are too floaty for me to accurately target enemy ships so I find myself in 5-10 minute dogfights against single ships because I can't ever lock on to them. Any tips? I still have a relative noob ship (B class - 27 slots with minimal boosts to stats). Are there any auto lock weapons that I can just fire in their general direction?

As of right now, this is pretty frustrating for me because there is a main mission that's locked behind getting ship kills :/

I'm not sure if they patched it but in 5.2 there was a glitch where you can dupe your photon canons. Search NMS jetpack duplication on youtube and it's the same principal,only do it once do because three dupes makes the visuals to strong and whites out the screen,it's made me the king of the sky, and with a few shield modules I haven't died once in space combat. 

If they have it patched. Farm nanite clusters and deck out your ship with S ranked modules (the yellow upgrades at the space stations) Best advice is to hit the breaks and turn as quickly as possible and wait for the ships to come your way and strafe the fuckers. Always break before they pass you and flip to the directional indicator.

The worse part is you now need Plus or Gold to play which they slipped in under the radar.

Like 99 percent of games out there.

You're trying to not be taken seriously, right?

Sorry that I use data and information for my decision making instead of blind faith and feelings.

Implying it's better to allow other people to choose what art you consume rather than judging things yourself. Yeah...



Meh, just tried it again. Still very boring, basically unplayable for me... to each their own though...

Just watched the Gamespot video review of the game after the Next update, and I've got to say, it's a rather impressive review, especially as someone that hasn't played the game yet, and it's definitely pushed me far into the "buy" area;

The game is still literally unplayable by my standards. I don't understand the appeal honestly. If I want to see some randomly generated artistic work I'll just google and then drive to a new botanical garden. The crafting just reminds me of all the other grind trap games that have plagued my past. There's just so many directions games can take and that is not the direction I want the industry to go so I won't buy it or support it. I stopped buying a lot of games this generation because they either do things I don't want in a game or added a ton of micro transactions. 



The only game ever i have tried to return on steam. never again, don't care how much people say it is 'fixed'

The moment I saw that thread title I was like, "yep, this is one of John's threads" :D

Glad you are enjoying the game. I really loved the idea of this game (open universe adventure...what's not to love), but was disappointed with the execution of it. Mind you, from what I played of it I thought it was a good start but did not come close to many of its promises. It largely felt barren to me. In many ways, I had a similar feeling when trying out Sea of Thieves. I am glad that the developer stuck with it and continued to improve it despite the negativity and skepticism radiating from the game community. Based on what I have seen and heard of No Man's Sky Next (my best friend is in love with the game now despite the fact that he too was disappointed with the original release), it has become a siren's song beckoning me to come back and play it. Hopefully, I will delve back into this gem once I have some free time (ideally I am hoping to try the multiplayer mode with my friend).
