No Man's Sky Catch-All 2.0

I am actually of two minds about this expedition in particular. It does not do a good job of introducing you to many of the game's mechanics like some earlier expeditions, or a normal game. A normal game starts with a lot of quests for early mining, crafting, installing studf in your ship and multi tool, and other things, but the expedition only provides help for the freighter stuff, and kind of assumes you know the basics already.

So, it depends on your tolerance for looking up stuff online or in the game's help system. All of the early game quests should become available when you convert to a normal save, but in the meantime you may flounder a bit or not know what you are missing.

Then again, you can get a lot of help here, or PM me, or ask questions in a bunch of Discord servers.

I've got to the point in a "normal" campaign where I've unlocked my own Freighter. This seems to me to the eminently sensible way to traverse the galaxy by taking your own base with you. IT would always seem to me - admittedly by what I've seen on YouTube and Twitch streams - that it wouldn't be a bad place to start mucking about in the expedition.

That said there does appear to be plenty of time to finish the expedition, so maybe I'll wait a little longer.

If you've unlocked the freighter in a regular game, you are probably fine in the expedition. I recommend unlocking the personal refiner and learning the di-hydrogen trick ASAP in both modes. Big help with frigates.

And what is this trick?

Spoiler:

You can get unlimited di-hydrogen by converting 30 to 1 jelly, then converting 1 jelly to 50 di-hydrogen. Repeat forever as long as you have carbon to power the refiner.

So, I'm playing through the polestar expedition and my freighter appears to get impatient with me and start building rooms by itself. They are ticking off the achievements and all that, and don't appear to be costing me any resources, which is sort of nice. However, the problem is they are often stuck out in the base building "area" completely disconnected to the rest of my freighter, often with no doors to be able to access them.

I'm wasting a lot of time and resources trying to connect them all up (often miles from where they'd be useful) and I can't work out if it's a bug or if other players are coming on to my ship and trolling me. Can people do that?

It's very confusing!

That is super weird, and I have not heard of it. You could just delete those pieces and get a refund on the parts and then rebuild it closer to you main section.

Yeah, I haven’t run into that issue.

Didn't happen to me but I heard about it happening to people. I think it's a multiplayer bug with editing freighters for different people in the system, but I'm not sure. It doesn't seem to happen when you're alone. Might be a good idea to turn off multiplayer in the expedition regardless.

Can you do that? I had no idea! I was going to delete and restart until the game pointed out you lose all your resources. I’ll figure out how to delete the extra rooms and try again.
