I'll just watch Down to Earth Astronomy's video on the newbie system when it's released.
I guess the amount of engineering needed depends on what is considered 'progress' - there is no formal progress in this game bar moving up ranks toward elite from the initial peasant status. It isn't as if there is a fixed storyline progression so imaginary achievements have to be set by the playerAll the grind again? Just to find out again you need to engineer the crap out of your stuff to be able to progress? No thx.
Those new systems look boring. The new trade tools, however... But I'm filthy rich now, so I'm not sure I have much motivation to become a trader, unless I go "full dark" and become a ship-losing griefer / pirate.I really want to see the new starter systems, and I barely have three million RN anyway. LOL
After the upgrade I am in Ay Indi, outside the starter systems. Nice work fdev, you winPlease report back what happens. I thought exactly that when I saw the name of one of the systems mentioned, but then realised that my alt account is somewhere near the core, and my main is on Kumay.
I spent an absolute fortune on vanity items on the Frontier store, no way in hell am I going to do this again on a second account (I also don't believe I should be paying for what's essentially a second save slot, sans all the store items as they don't carry over. If they would, I could be persuaded).Never clear your main. Just buy an alt account that could be used for that. If the alt account appeals you more than the main, then next time you get the urge you can wipe that one.
I think there is still discount on Steam for Horizons. There was recently nice discount on Steam...
