-Volcanos Nobody talks about them, but that would be the ultimate feature, even underground lava in caves would be cool -load game zoom there is a video where the screen zooms from out in space into a solar system and into a planet and zooms down to ground level and he walks up a hill and you see all this fluorescent plants and animals... I want the game to zoom in like this every time I load my game on my ps4, just zoom from way out into space to the last point where I left off -Hail/snow/cats & dogs lol -food The option to eat to regain health and that would be a good reason for killing an animal or two -Ability to own 2 ships once you reach the center of the Galaxy -Mud Thick rainy dirt and it sounds squishy when you walk -Avalanches if you blow a big hole in a mountain -Meteor showers(in space and on planets) -Ice Planets which include ice slides if you slide down a mountain -Some kind of Pokemon type animal that spits flames or electricity -Racing -Split screen multiplayer -ability to overtake a large space vessel and its fleet to send them out on missions to go attack other fleets and gather resources -oxygen tank for underwater -assault multitools and sniper multitools maybe oven shotguns -lava like planets that are close to the sun but still hold valuable resources -plant gathering -submersible ships -Critical hits above a planets surface causes you to crash land and have to repair ship -Geysers -planet-quakes -thunder and lightening --whirlpools -quicksand -button for lying down and staring at the sky or stars -cliff diving (into water of course) -ship hover upgrade -giant trees like 120ft tall and 20 feet across -icebergs -Poisonous insects like alien bees, spiders, snakes etc. -rocket launcher for taking out ships from the ground -flashlight for dark caves -whales and sharks and monkeys/gorillas and Woolly mammoths That's all I can think of right now but comment below what you'd like to see in No Mans Sky
This seems paradoxical, but what I really want to see...
Is the ability to be an anomaly hunter.
What do I mean by this? I am sincerely hoping that dedicated explorers will be able to craft gear to search for regions/systems/planets with something amazing on them. The game play trailers have featured a few stunning lifeforms. One that comes to mind is that enormous snake. But these things are going to be rather rare - I want my equipment to provide me hints to seek out such things. Documenting the truly unique and stunning things that exist in this universe seems to me to be the most incredible aspect of this game.
I'd like to see amazing details, even on the smallest of visible scales. I'd like to be a world that's full of vibrant life, and be able to turn over a rock and discover a multitude of tiny creatures like I did as a child. I'd like to kneel down and see all the wriggling, crawling things that my intrusion startles. And then, with my attention focused on this world's tiniest creatures, I almost fail to notice the herd of titans that breaks out of the treeline, heading toward me.
On another world, I want dive into a vast ocean and encounter a reef-like structure on a scale that dwarfs the Great Barrier Reef, and showcases a kaleidoscope of life in colors, shapes, scales, fins, iridescence and more, causing sensory overload.
Transporting animals and plants could be cool. You could save some species from extinction by finding a suitable new planet for them. Or build (assuming they add it too ^^)your own zoo or garden. (A tree ship, like in Hyperion would be great as well) And there would be a black market for pirates, I guess.
I feel like that is just so far away from the core of the game, they got zoo tycoon if you want a zoo, and they got minecraft if you want to build, every planet will have different species and you can't make a base there's no point, not trying to be mean or negative but listen to Sean he's a genius
Keeping samples of the species you love doesn't seem far away from the game, to me. I thought we were talking about cool stuff we'd like to see. Don't worry for me, I'll enjoy the game!
Include the star as a discovery, be able to fly to it, but not on it for obvious reasons. lol. Gas planets, procedurely generated asteroid belts/comets that can collide with planets. Different stars; pulsars, queysars(sorry spelling) death of stars, planets, systems. Ability of neighboring stars to acquire planets from dead systems. Planetary collisions in such incidents.
A DEATH STAR lol
More refined elements, more crafting, alternative transportation on planets created in manufactoring facilites. More options at outposts. Being able to look into space from the observation outpost. Able to send out transmissions from towers for other players to hear if they are in your system. Requires headset. the list goes on and on.
