No Man’s Sky – Making an Omelet

logo

I’ve spent some time lately poking around in No Man’s Sky. I’ve mostly just been system hopping along the atlas path while upgrading my exosuit and checking for an S-class multitool. Every now and then I’d stop to gather resources or hunt for crashed S-class ships. I’ve been on the lookout for a nice freighter.

I did find this beautiful fighter at some point though. It was a decent upgrade, though it’s not fully repaired yet. Once finished it will offer close to double the space of my previous ship.

I also spent about a week working on getting the void egg for the living ship. That entire quest series is the very definition of time gated.

heart timer

I mean that quite literally. That’s real-world hours though, not playtime. This is… the second stage? It took a week of dailies to purchase it and a lot of time flying around doing whatever to trigger the initial step.

egg coords

Once the initial random waiting period is over, it seems to consist of find a specific planet vaguely identified by the quest, then manually navigate to the provided coordinates. No auto-pilot for this one. The first time I was pretty close, this time it took a while to get there.

The result of locating your destination is a new crafting recipe that yields an item like this, which is what that timer was from.

Not sure that I much care for the way the living ships look, but it’s an interesting enough diversion. Maybe I’ll write a post-mortem after I’m done. If I get done.

Y’all take care. Don’t get eggs-terminated.
