Jomni's No Man Sky Diary
« on: August 17, 2016, 07:13:40 PM »
I think I will start a diary / captian's log sort of thing.  I will write down what I'm up to in the game. But no promises on how detailed it may be. Depends on my mood. And I won't commit to a frequency of update as I don't play this every time. 

My primary goal is to add immersion to my gameplay. As well as show you guys what NMS has in store.  It may also prove how varied or boring the experiences are in NMS.  I have come to the conclusion that plant life is repetitive and animals look the same.  The procedurally generated life forms are nothing great and overhyped. You get superficial variations but their core features are essentially the same.

I'm in. But only if you name a planet after me. A big one with lots of those rings around it. Slash-terrium or something like that.

I'll name a pug after you if you don't mind.  I actually haven't seen a planet with rings so far.

OK. The Pug Home World then.  ;D  This one looks like one I should stay away from lest I get lost wandering the Cosmos forever looking for the next great screenshot.

So here I am in this world I call the "Frosty Hostile Land" in Jomni III System (I claim all the systems I come across).  It's a cold place.  And things are out there to kill me.  The drones here are pretty aggressive and they attack me even when I do nothing.  So I must always keep moving around.  I was attacked by one type of fauna which I call "Rabid Turtle Bunny".  Occasionally, there are storms which uses up the heating energy of my suit so I have to use metals to activate the reserve heating if I'm far from shelter.



I found this ship which has one more slot than my old one so I decided to make this mine.  But I have to repair the parts.  I repaired the Jet Propulsion and the Launch Thruster and Pulse Engine so that my ship is ready to go.  I wanted to fix the Shields and Jump Drive too but I have mined the last Heridium in the vicinity.  Since walking around on foot and gathering resources is very dangerous with all the active droids, I decided to fly my new ship that's not completely repaired.



I stumbled across a comms terminal in an abandoned observatory.  Solving the puzzle, I was informed of a place of interest in some part of this planet.



Flying around, I saw some ships landing in a clearing.  I went to investigate and was delighted to see a trading post.  I couldn't talk to the pilot of the ship for long as those droids will start shooting at me when I keep still so I went indoors. 



Inside, I found a better Multitool (Mining and Combat weapon) with a grenade launcher.  So I bought it to replace my standard one.  I also sold loot and bought some resources to fix my ship but it's still not enough.



The trading post was manned by a Vy'keen named Beaushan.  The Vy'keen are a pretty intimidating race of warriors.  So far, the only thing I understand from him is 'interloper'.  I guess he's referring to me.  They're generally friendly though constant interaction.



Walking around, I found a new creature and I call this the "Iron Eating Iguana".  Because it eats iron and it looks like an iguana.



I figured, I really need to get back to the space port to obtain the materials that I need to fix the ship instead of scouring Frosty Hostile Land.  So I took my new ship to space for the first time.



The ship is fixed now and I'm ready to go back to the planet to get some "valuable resource" for trade.

Sorry about the big pictures.  I will try to resize them before uploading next time.
