Thanks for the help on the map.
One thing I am discovering is that my poking about on my own for several hours has made the main quest lines pretty silly. “Talk to an alien!”. Yeah, I’ve been doing that for like 12 hours now.
Going to follow the breadcrumbs a bit and let the quest lines catch up with me. Perhaps things like warp upgrades will show up along those quests.
In the meanwhile, I finally ran across a reasonably nice planet (verdant), and I’ve got my base started. Nice to have a planet I can stroll around in and look at derpy animals and collect materials without raging heat or cold or toxicity. It’s all just busy work, really, but it’s relaxing, enjoyable busy work,
