    I just got my fist freighter and pulling up to it for the first time I felt very small.  I even got lost in it.  Love it in VR how to people enjoy NMS without VR?

    Indeed it is the problem with VR imo. Some games once you play in VR lose any interest playing on a monitor.
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    @Rob_In_Phoenix  (and maybe @nalex66 ) - once the Sentinels start attacking, if oyu jump straight into space Snetinel ships will drop in to say hello, if you can blow them up you can get some rather nice goodies in exchange...  But they are quite tough...
    Easiest way to calm things down is to jump in your ship and circle the site until to 'searching' counter zeros, then you can land, rinse and repeat or take off feeling secure that nothing unpleasant awaits you in space.  (The ships will chase you through the atmosphere too... )

    Just started continuing the storyline and now have a couple of staff working in my base now. :D

    Although they're working in the rain because I couldn't be arsed to make my base look nice. It's all one level, made out of wood and the station that the Overseer needs and the Science station are too tall to fit in my base so I just took the roof/floor sections out so that the top of the stations are poking out lololol  :D

    I also started the Atlas missions too but stopped partway through to do the base building stuff first.

    Yeah, every time I fly to space Atlas bugs me to go do his mission. I guess I should get on with it, but I’ve got a list of other things I want to do.

    I've put in around 48 hours I think so far and I've only gotten around to the Anomaly and stuff these last couple of days lol

    I've been having too much fun just flying around and scanning stuff :D

    I've got a weird bug happening with the latest experimental build update. I was trying to send out a new frigate mission from my freighter, but when I talk to my navigator to open the expedition menu, my viewpoint suddenly shoots out into space, so I'm looking at my freighter from afar. When I click left trigger to close the menu, I return to my body. The view is nice, but now I can't do any more expeditions.
    Did you ever get this sorted?  You could report the bug perhaps and it might get fixed.  I don't have a freighter yet so I don't know anything about this phase of the game.

    Thanks for the heads up Ratty.  My mistake was going into space.  I've also read that digging holes or running into buildings can help you evade sentinels.  I'll take another crack at those gravitino balls.
    I realize now that I don't have any fighting skills, especially in ship to ship combat.  I'll need to change that.  I'm thinking about saving up for a fighter and putting some weaponry on it.  We'll see how that works out.

    I had a new update to the experimental branch when I launched Steam tonight, and my save happened to be in my freighter, so I checked it first thing, and the problem was gone. I did report the bug to Hello Games through their feedback site last week.

    This is the view I had when the bug shot me out into space:

    Digging holes does work - great for blowing up armoured doors...   But be aware that the 'dog' sentinel will often come down the hole after you (obviously a genetically modified terrier!) and there is nowhere to go to get away without 'digging' further :)

    Is anyone else getting freighters following them around..? There always seems to be two groups of ships that keep on following me wherever I go. I think it might be related to me rescuing freighters from pirates a couple of times and then refusing to take over the command of them. When I've done that I get them saying that I've got control of the ships for some reason. I just took it as a minor bug in the line of text that gets displayed but not sure if having ships jumping into space around you whenever you warp happens for everyone else all the time?

    Okay, so I've started the Abyss missions. Found the crashed ship, built my mini-sub and now have the coordinates for the freighter under the water. But I can't get to the bloody thing in my sub because I have to go over land to reach the body of water that it's in.

    I'm thinking of just taking off in my ship, flying over to it and then building another bloody sub to get to the bloomin thing. A bit long winded though. Anyone got any ideas?

    Couldn't do that, it wouldn't let me. I ended up digging a bloody great big long tunnel through the land masses at water level lol :D

    Took me fucking AGES lmfao  :D

    Lol, after Asgard's Wrath, Borderlands 2 VR, Pistol Whip and Stormland I've completely forgotten about No Man's Sky. 

    How is the game today - has performance been improved? 

    I know - I could just start the game, but it's on Steam and only my Index works there and I only got one controller for now... 
    Intel i7 7700K (4.5 GHz); MSI GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Gaming X (oc 2100 MHz gpu boost, 11 GHz mem speed); 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 MHz; MSI Z270I Gaming Pro Carbon AC (VR-Ready) mainboard; Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD + Toshiba P300 HD; Windows 10 OS; Valve Index and Oculus Rift CV1 - the latter nearly always using super sampling 2.0.

    Performance is about the same the last time I played about a week ago.

    Big update coming tomorrow, with a bunch of nice new features and improvements, and some new VR functionality: creature riding and photo mode!

    Also includes the ability to upgrade your ship's class and slots, so you don't have to spend forever waiting for the perfect ship to spawn at a station. And, you can now scrap unwanted ships for cash!
