Inventory management can be tricky in No Man's Sky and since more slots are expensive, getting a good ship for free can be useful.
Didn't know you could dismantle your old ship! Hehdhudbebdbdj!!!!
You can't. You can only transfer materials, not upgrades. And also, you need to repair everything on the new ship you find. So calling it "free" is a tad dishonest.
Always do this when you're buying a new ship :D
If im not paying units, then it's free.
Shit that sucks. How is one supposed to know if the ship isn't infested with roaches?
Ah ok, yea I've done that already. Was about to say...
It means dismantle the upgrades that come on the ships like the boosters to the blasters or beams. You do that before you take the new ship. Also for anyone looking to upgrade there exosuit quickly, find a planet that is barren of foliage, way easier to spot exosuit upgrade pods flaying around. It gets pricey but I have more space in my suit than on my ship. Oh yeah and the multitool can usually be done by the same method, find a shelter I think it is (whatever the little huts are with a single landing pad) and usually the tool in it has 1 more slot than the tool you have on (I say usually because sometimes it doesn't).
I found a planet that has exo suit upgrade pods all over it. I have found about 8 in an hour last night between other discoveries and monoliths it is fantastic. I am sticking around on this planet.
Once you have atlas pass V1 every space station has one behind the locked door. I've got 48 exotic slots because of it.
Yep. Its pretty easy to do. I guess if ya took a few hrs in a system with a few planets you could just grab the ship, repair thrusters and go hunting, keep doing this until ya get the one ya want. Then start the long trek of building all the mids exactly how ya want them. Actually, this is the only way to really get a great ship without spending millions and millions. I bought one for 3 mil and now I need 10+ mil to even make it worth buying another.
Guyfamily999 - How you even get a pass? :D I ain't came across one yet..
Did you just have a stroke?
I frigging love this game don't understand all the hate. I get the monotony gripe but the sense of exploration and discovery is unparalleled
I hit disagree by accident. At its core, it's a survival game that relies heavily on exploration and the unknown. Those types of games definitely can't keep some people interested for long, but I've said a handful of times already, No Man's Sky wouldn't be getting nearly this much hate if it didn't have the extreme amount of hype. Survival games aren't even new, but none of those other games got all this criticism. Being out in the middle of nowhere without a helping hand is actually what I love most about this game. There are people who never even complete games like Fallout and The Witcher because they get caught up doing side stuff and just wandering around. It's that desire to discover and embrace the game world that works for some people, but turns away those who probably need a concise path and mission structure to be entertained.
Isn't it strange that people like us who actually paid attention to what the game was gonna be rather than making up a different game in our minds are getting the game we wanted and are loving it. It's pretty obvious that all the people hating and disappointed don't know how to listen and read
The hate comes from salt, just ignore it and enjoy the game.
It separates the explorers from the non-explorers.
Spin the big wheel and who ever gets closest to 100 without going over wins the ship?
No need for this. Just go with the flow and eventually you get more money and buy ships or find some at crash sites. If you are going to grind for hours just to get the best ship, what fun is there for the rest of the game? But to each his own I guess
Buying high-slot ships is a grind in itself. There is no way you are going to earn 60+million while playing normally, and that's how much it costs to buy a ship with 40+ slots.
I actually found a planet that has vortex cubes every 15 to 35 feet, and they each sell for 25K, so I grab like 15 at a time, run them to the sales network, and boom I'm making millions fast.
Later when you find more rare items you can make money more easily, there is the trading system for. Or you can become a pirate and shoot down those big ships
@GrubsterBeater That is called grinding!
@GrubsterBeater So... you're grinding, not playing normally. I've found a planet littered with Gravitino Balls, sold them with a bonus of 86% and glitched them into a stack, and even 100 (which still takes quite a bit of time to collect) only gives you around 4 million-ish. Anyone can do this, it's just grinding. My point is that you'll never even come close to the 60 million to buy a ship with 40+ slots through simply exploring planets. Without glitching stacks of "unstackables," duping, or farming crash sites you won't get a 40+ slot ship by just "going with the flow."
@GrubsterBeater You should keep traveling then. There are planets where you can get 90-100K for Vortex Cubes, way less grinding. Also the more planets you discover the more units you get when you upload them.
You mean actually play the game as it was intended, how dare you suggest such a thing. How will people cheese it and complain about then?
I found a planet littered with gold. Just sold everything and stocked up on gold.. went to the station, sold it and returned for more. I hit 1 million credits in no time. Got a decent ship now. Looks pretty tho, like a dragon. :) Gardenia - I'm not boss enough, yet, to attack those big shuttle looking ship things. I get owned every time, lol.
i got bored at this game already
k why u still looking up news about it then? Go play something else.
i did :/
You also could have a legitimate reason to still look up stuff about NMS but you didnt even answer so I do question your original comment. But yea idc if you are trollin or are legit, I just find it amusing. I cant judge you cause Idk 100% but I just find it funny,lol
Don't worry, Watch Dogs 2: Hipster Edition will be out soon enough with a lot of hand holding and predetermined story missions with lots of map markers.
Why is it that the common reply of someone who doesn't like the game is always "Well go play X game then, casual." X being Cawadoody or some Ubisoft yearly release. It adds nothing to the conversation and makes you look like an elitist fanboy. Stop it.
I've been to tons of crash sites and haven't encountered one with 48 slots yet, let alone 30. Must be a BIG chunk of luck involved as well. My tip is to upgrade your exosuit slots in the meantime. It also maxes out at 48 slots and is awfully useful when you land on a planet that let's you farm, pearls, orbs, cubes etc.
The crashed ships are only ever 1 or 2 slots above the one you currently have. You need to keep fixing and upgrading the ships that have more slots than yours to gradually work your way up.
You have to grind the crash sites. Crashed ships have -2/+2 slots in comparison to your ship, so you either have to buy a ship with a lot of slots and then work your way up, hopping from +2 ship to +2 ship, or start at the bottom and spend less cash but grind ships waaaaaaay longer. Honestly, it's probably easier to planet-hop until you find a planet littered in rare crafting unstackables, glitch them into a stack, then buy a ship with around 35 slots and start the crash site grind from there.
A few hours? Try a few days.
And I just recently bought a ship going from 15 slots to 24... Didnt even know how much slots you can possibly have.
Same here! I found a planet stocked with Albumen Pearls...fought off way too many sentinels to take them...and raked in enough to jump up to a nice 25 slot ship. I freaked out when I saw this title. Would be awesome to see how many slots are possible!
Thanks for the tip and you can also find a suit powerup around a planet. Different ones are located everywhere My suit has plenty of room because I keep upgrading it.
As much as I love this game (my favorite of this generation) I would like the ability to trade or sell your ship when upgrading. Seems a bit odd that in order to purchase a pricey ship from some random alien you have to just leave yours behind in the hanger without getting one credit for it. Same goes for multitools. Would be kind of nice to be able to just purchase individual slots for ships/tools anyway.
the way i look at it, if you don't give them your ship they are stranded. So they are offering to use your ship and you have to pay them as well.
Doing it this way would take a long long long time. I made a 2 million units within 3 hours and bought a ship with twice as much space as the start up craft.
I basically done the same thing. Doesn't take to long to upgrade to a decent ship. Plus upgrading your suit helps a lot
Me and my friends loving this game. So much to explore and have fun with.
I suppose that is one way... I mean yeah the crashed ships you can switch over to for absolutely no cost in units.... but you still have to repair everything because the ship is broken.. also good luck finding a 48 slot ship as a crashed ship... you could literally spend your whole time trying to find one and never find one.. hahaha.... I mean if I had to guess I would say that finding a 48 slot crashed ship is going to be pretty rare. plus on top of it... it's not like UNITS are that difficult to come by... sure in the beginning hours it's kinda difficult but that's the same with any game where you need money to get stuff. but once you get the solid basics of the game down it is easy-peesy.... Gravitino Balls, Albumen Pearls... I was just messing around last night and I was pulling in full loads (inventory completely full) of Gravitino Balls pulling in anywhere between 600-800K Units in one trip... I basically keep enough of the vital resources so I can charge my stuff.. but all the free slots go were Gravitino Balls so yeah... once you get going and get a good grasp of the game and what you're trying to accomplish, Units won't be an issue. https://www.youtube.com/wat... (this is from a tad bit earlier but it shows the idea of what I'm talking about.. I have more slots currently)
You are guaranteed to find a ship that is -2/+2 your current ship, so you just work your way up to 48 gaining +1/+2 at a time. The only two things you have to repair are the launcher and the pulse drive in order to use the ship to find another ship. And 800k a run is pittance. You'll be doing somewhere around 75 runs to that ship in order to afford a 48 slot ship, if you even see one for sale.
So I guess it should be a combination of the two. What I'm thinking of doing is buying a 22+ ship, and use that as a base. Then grind the Graviton Balls to make around 10mil. Then buy another tier say around 28 or 30 or so. Then buy another ship, then go below and grind again but this time look for ships as well to get to the high 30s or so. Then buy one last ship to around 40-42, then grind the rest. The reason why I'm doing this is the people selling their ships dont seem to have ships with way more space than the current ship i'm using. If anyone else has a better idea please let me know.
Didn't find this useful. You still have to find resources to fix crashed ships; a very time-consuming process.
You only need to repair two things in order to continue to hunt, and you can break down all the upgrades of your current ship and the crashed ship for spare resources. At most you'll need to grab some plutonium for fuel.
I guess you can call it 'free shipping' lol
I laughed more than I should have
I've done this a few times. It's pretty easy. If you're going to grind crash sites in one system you only need repair Launch Thruster and Pulse engine to get the ship up and running, then head to the next crash site and repeat. To fix those two components I found I only need 6 Carite Sheets (300 iron to make), 200 Heridium, and 20 Zinc Iron and Heridium is stuff I can get in about 5-10 mins from pretty much every planet, and Zinc isn't too hard to get from a Station, Trade Point or by luck on a planet (plus the Plutonium / Thamium9 to power them).
Thanks for the tip to get a 48 slots ship for free, but do they have to be so ugly? And can't you have larger ships in which you can move around like in that Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter game from the previous gen? (who remembers that one? lol)
This is not the way to do this. I've been to at least 20 planets and every crash site I visit has a ship with one less slot available. The grind is real with this game.
I agree. I lucked out and found a planted with tall Gold mountains and another littered with Albumen Pearls. Once you find a planet like that it just takes a trading post and time. From there you'll cash in quick to move on to the deeper galaxies.
I got a transmission to a crash site but when I fly towards it the time never changes. It fluctuates between 18-19 minutes. Is it underground or something?
I find this happens every now and then, flying off planet then heading to it sometimes helps..
This approach with finding crashed ships might take forever since the range varies from +2 slots to -2 slots of your current ship the chances are 50% that you find a ship with less inventory slots than the one you already have, this means you will have a lot of failed attempts in the long run and you always have to repair the crashed ship. All in all this means you have to take the time to find a crashed ship and than will have a lot of failed attempts plus even when you actually get a ship with more slots than your current one the chances are high that is only +1 Slot and you have to take the time to always repair the ships. Conclusion it might take you forever to get a 48 Slots Ship this way.
I farmed venom sacs with a fully upgraded suit and 30 upgrade ship that I gutted. 1.7 mil every 6 minutes. Bought a max ship in 2 hours from a korvax space station. On my way to the center atm. 140k light years and I can see black holes
