I've been wondering whether I should play normal or survival in NMS. Survival was a true challenge the first couple of hours, however, it's not difficult at all when I have upgrades. I'm rarely close to death even on the most extreme planets. It feels pretty much like normal mode except I have to refuel/recharge everything much more often to the point where it's all just a nuisance. That's why I'm considering switching back to normal and reunite with my old ship, multitool and deep space galaxy. If I do so I will sadly go from 370 million down to 12 million. I will also have to do all of the missions all over again, but that should be much easier to do in normal mode. It'll require a bit of grinding, but I'd like to be prepared for the future updates when they drop.
Just a heads up letting you know I am still here. been busy getting back into my art/creative side and hope to integrate that with NMS subjects down the line alongside some other projects I will be working on to get back into the creative flow, after an 18 month creative block where I stood back to rest my creative brain. I will be making large cuts to our membership soon as we are barely even registering on the activity scale at all these days. hopefully new updates will come along soon and I can be inspired to play more and integrate that into me refreshed creative side. Time will tell.
I hope to soon delete my small base ingame and head out to create a base on a freighter and from there go forth and try and find some inspiring places to fire my creative side. Till then fly free Nomads.
Getting back into my main game again after dabbling in creative I see that i am about 5 million credits from affording a freighter as yet >.< Lol, see creative makes you lazy :p
So I guess I will be travelling and farming quite a bit now to play catchup.
Big changes tomorrow, I will be deleting most of the membership alas. A Bedouin carries only what he needs, and much of this extra unused weight is wastefull. I hope to create a lttle story as to where Crylic and the Bedouins are up to in our timeline. Where this leaves us a group is unknown as yet, but know this, irregardless of outcomes, we are Nomads, we move, we search, we explore and we move on, alone in silence or with connections to other Nomads, and that goes for any Nomadic spirit out there among the stars and galaxies in the NMS Universe. Clean Blue jets people, fly free.
I have now deleted the main bulk of non attendees within the group barring a couple for various reasons. That leaves us at 13 and may even be cut further soon.
The group dynamic served a purpose in development, but now? Time will tell. Regardless we are Nomads with that same ideal I hope, that would continue to live on in each of us that are left should the group dynamic carry on or die a natural death.
Maybe more to say on this subject in a week or so. Till then keep your course pilots.
