Yep, I’ve decided to roll a NG+, but I think I’m gonna replay the story and pay closer attention to the Constellation peeps and to the world itself. I was so overwhelmed last time. I’ve also decided to immediately exchange the Starborn ship and stole some clothes out of the spaceport cafeteria to give myself something to wear. I’m in the Well right now selling some goods to get some scratch before heading to The Lodge.
I settled back in to Starfield because, to be honest, Cyberpunk just feels too loud and obnoxious coming off of this game. I’ll jump back in to Night City eventually, but for now, I’m gonna stick with New Atlantis.
I’ve found myself caught up in trying to infiltrate the Crimson Fleet. Which should be interesting since I am now (insert dramatic music) The Mantis!
Oh the first time I went to Cydonia, main mission, there was a guy arguing with some guys on a platform. I ignored him. I read later there is a cool mission associated with helping him. Any way to find him again?
I’ll hit my 200th hour mark playing this tonight most likely. I’m still having great fun, I still feel like I’ve only glimpsed what this game has and I’ve only completed 2 and a half faction lines. I am, however very far through the main quest and a bit stuck based on ship requirements.
This tracks much longer, and larger than Skyrim and man I CANNOT wait for the Creator Tools to be released and really see what the community does with this. If nothing else, there are so many subsystems in this game I find amazing, shipbuilding being one of those. Just exploring your creations after making them is quite fun, as is customizing them as you achieve higher levels and unlock more things for them.
I hope others here are enjoying it as much as me. I see a few on my friends list around or even beyond the playtime I’ve put in. I’d be interested in hearing more from others.
These are the voice actors for Sarah and Andreja. Guess who plays who.
Awesome. I’ve been wondering whether they made their NPC dialogues by motion-capturing them as they speak. I’ve tried animating facial muscles and speech, and it is hard.
I hope others here are enjoying it as much as me.
I sure am. I’m at 101.8 hours, and about to fire it up this evening. I’ve finished the Ryujin quest and I may be closed to finishing the UC quests. Both very enjoyable. I’m not sure how far along I am on the main quest, but I’m in no hurry to finish it, as I’d like to keep building my empire of outposts. Also, I just got a big Class C ship and unlocked piloting for it, and I’ve finally started messing with shipbuilding. But I need more skills to do both that and outpost-building right, so after I finish the UC quest, I may do some side quests for a while – and explore.
I know some people don’t like the planetary exploration, but it is one of my favorite parts of the game. I like jetting off to find new star systems and planets and moons. Once on a planet, I enjoy cataloguing the resources, flora, and fauna, and I like finding the special traits. I mostly ignore the POIs with enemies, though.
Shipbuilding is fantastic and my favourite subsystem.
I love it so far. Do you have any thoughts on design goals? I have a Stroud-Eckland class C ship, the one you get for free from Walter , and I did mod it for EMP so I could fight a certain NPC, but other than that I haven’t fussed with it. It’s got a big bridge, and it sure is fun having my whole crew in the cockpit shouting advice to me as we fight. But I’m not sure I love the sight-lines in the cockpit. Any advice on an alternative bridge/cockpit?
When you enter a system check your star map for icons in space - not planets - that say things like “unknown contact”, “hostile activity”, “ship” etc. Those can point you to various random space derelicts with some great environmental story telling and various “hazards”. Be prepared for some real tearjerkers though.
I did finally build a semisatisfactory little ship, but starting from scratch having deleted all modules because of weird errors that wouldn’t resolve. At the moment my only weapons are 4 particle beams but they can kill any enemy ship I’ve met quite quickly.
I took the main story through Into the Unknown, and since people have already talked about powers here I’ll say I have the first power but forget to use it. It’s pretty handy when getting overrun. It doesn’t seem to work on robots?
I keep chasing squirrels. I completed the Mantis story which is cool. On the way there, since I didn’t have the reach to get to that system, I stopped at a planet and saw a ship without power and not answering circling the planet. Went back there after the Mantis mission and got that story going. Didn’t have the money to complete one part so went exploring. Landed on a pretty desolate moon by mistake and figured while I was here I’d explore. Stumbled onto what looked like and abandoned military outpost and Andreja said hey this might be a place for stored arms and ammo. Cleared it out but the arsenal appears was behind a door I didn’t have the level to unlock. Went to a place where I seemed to have read there were a lot of locks. Ran into a hostage situation in a bank. Talked to the Ranger and did my thing there. He said I should join the Rangers based on what I’d done. Did that. Picked a mission from their mission board. Oh I’d also picked up a cool side mission on the planet near mars I’d forgotten about. Now I’m about to do the Ranger mission. But want to go back and finish the story with the stranded ship. And …….
Do I get tired of Andreja and Sarah talking to each other while I’m on the ship? Sure. Do I wish the inventory was better? You bet. But I’m having a great time.
Question: do the locks on the lockers in the bank reset after a while? And I only have one power do I have to have it take up a slot on my quick pick bars?
