  1. The new line of attack against James Gunn is old photos (from around the same time as the original tweets) showing him at a "To Catch a Predator" costume party. Of course, as with the jokes, additional photos make clear that this was just one of the costume parties Gunn attended. It would appear this is just more of the same. Trying to weaponize his earlier 'Edgy' Persona against him, & it looks kinda desperate. IMO this is because the #RehireJamesGunn campaign might be gaining some traction & Disney is yet to clarify just what is going on with GotG vol 3, which appears to causing some problems. Of course, you should all of this with a pinch of salt. There's still no solid indications that Gunn will be brought back. but the one notable thing to my mind is that Disney does seem to be dragging it's feet when it comes to naming a new Director. Is it possible that they approached new Directors immediately after firing Gunn, & they all told them that firing him was a mistake & they wouldn't take the project? I'd certainly like to think so.

    I messed around with the Creative Mode some more, & I managed to start building into the ground by using an existing fissure to get under the surface, & then 'carving' out underground caverns by using floor panels. I could then place prefab structures into the hollowed out spaces., so I built a nice underground base, but then rather ran out of ideas. I suppose I could just keep digging down, down, down, & see how I far I could go...

    Seeing all the weird & wonderful ideas that people are coming up with for Base Building makes me wonder if the idea was for the players to be the ones to add personality to this copy-paste universe, & desirability for certain locations. There are no cities on the planets, but if someone was to build an impressive enough base, that would be kind of like a city wouldn't it? and people would want to come see it, like that player who put Sean Murray's face on a planet that could be seen from space. Of course, that's not something the online really supports, but perhaps if the game sticks around long enough, it will. Players building more & more elaborate bases, perhaps even competing for land & resources, shaping this empty universe into something more interesting.

    I built a little hut as a base but because the floor I built it on wasn't perfectly level I couldn't just walk in the door & I also didn't have a ramp. So I just used the Terrain Manipulator to raise up the ground in front of the door into a small slope. Works like a charm.

    AFAIK yes. I'll try turning off supersampling later & see if it stabilizes at all. Perhaps it's too much for the Pro to handle with a game like this.

    Are you using Supersampling Mode? I did wonder if turning it off would make a difference.
  7. After the success with Gunn, they do appear to be trying to apply the same tactics with a variety of others, but AFAIK it's mostly falling flat, which I would hope is mostly due to people getting wise to it.

    Playing on PS4 Pro, I haven't had any crashes yet, but it appears to be constantly threatening to do so with ominous pauses every now & then. Perhaps starting a new game has insulated me to a degree? Anyways, I've been following the Story Path & got a gift of Nanites. I hot-footed it over to Space Station & perused the Suit Upgrade Options, & as every planet i've visited so far has been either an oven or a freezer, I decided to invest in the Maximum Level Heat & Cold Shielding. Once installed neatly next to the hazard shielding, I went down to an ice planet to check it out, & i liked how didn't have to worry about constantly fuelling the Hazard Shield or Popping in & out of my Ship...until I discovered that the extra shielding itself had run out, & that it doesn't recharge on it's own when you go into cover. It requires elements that I don't have at the moment, so although I like how an extra shielding layer is there if i need it, it does seem like somewhat of waste.

    I'm given to understand that Upgrade Pod's are quite rare now, but I managed to spot one while just cruising over a planet, taking in the sights with the lovely new 3rd- Person view. I landed & tried to use it to upgrade my pitiful Suit Capacity, but it appears that they now need to be repaired just like the Cargo Containers, & it needed some materials I have no idea how to find or make. I'll be sticking around this system for a while longer, so I would have liked to mark the Pod & come back to it later, but AFAIK you can only set one Custom Waypoint at a time.

    I didn't bother with it before, but perhaps I should give Creative Mode a try just to see what kind of buildings are possible now. Am I right in thinking that's it's exactly like the main game, only with unlimited access to materials & building parts?

    It turns out that the Freezer Planet I escaped to after the Oven World is only cold at night, so I've decided to stick around for a bit, explore, collect stuff & generally try to get to grips to how everything works now. I've just started Base Construction, & as I was uncertain where I should put the Base Computer I put it on top of a small hill. I built a cozy little wood hut further down the hill & I liked how I could actually build into the terrain, but now I'm wondering how far that goes. Can I build downward, & create an underground base? Can I build under the peak of the hill that the Base Computer rests on? The only reason I haven't tried these things yet is the need to keep going on logging expeditions with my weedy starting laser, but I hope such things are possible.

    There was before, & if you look at a Sentinel through the Scan Visor now it will tell you what it's current activity is, which includes things like "Intelligence Suppression", a pretty big hint as to why they're around.

    It's required to fuel Life Support now, but I forget how it was fuelled before. I believe it was Carbon to start with, but then Thamium later...could be wrong though.

    Was getting pretty desperate for Oxygen, my Scanner was hardly picking it up at all. But then Night fell, & I realised that the plant that gives it glows in the dark. Cue a dash down a valley going from glowing spot to spot, & i've built up a nice little stock that should keep me going for a while.

    Had a quick blast on this, & managed to repair my ship (I like how you can repair in stages now, no need to craft everything at once) & finally leave the Oven of my Starting Planet & head off to a neighbouring one. Which is a Freezer! Oh, No Man's Sky, how did you know that I much prefer frostbite to heatstroke? You spoil me.
