Started new game.. everytime I leave starter planet I get killed by pirates. Doesn't matter if I have empty cargo, still get shot down. If you do this on survival mode, you end up 13minutes from your ship. Everytime.
Endlessly running to a crashed ship is not fun. They really need to fix the game so pirates don't even spawn in the outer systems, so you can even have a slight chance of advancing.
The "normal game" is boring. So until this moronic pirate system is removed.. it's pretty much pointless even playing this outside of a sandbox.
I feel you even though i dare not step out of normal mode yet... but whenever i get shot down i always lose my Hyperdrive theta which means i gotta get 500 gold and emeril each. every, single, god damn time.

I'm an ace so I can handle em myself. Although I have yet to see a downed ship as recoverable
I found one, it was about 500m up in the air where noone would ever recover it, but it kinda crashed.. I guess any ship just hanging in the air has crashed at some level.
I used the planet escape trick to avoid pirates alot now, just carried 2k gold to space station to sell it. Didn't realise you don't get the storages at default now on base.
Found a 2x gravity world, so tham and plutonium are in good supply. The funny thing about survival game I've found is, it's more a resource hunting game now than actually surviving, outside of pirates and finding your first grenade launcher. Once you have grenades, survival is easy. At least on planets.
Also just discovered a system first discovered by someone called Visor.
Game is just boring, maybe I played it too much, maybe it's just the extreme grind. Getting tech to advance is nearly impossible with the new credit system, cost of taking off cost of dying.. nah nms is getting uninstalled.
Can't be bothered grinding away for a pittence return.
