NMS: Ships
« on: August 23, 2016, 11:57:05 AM »
Since ships are procedurally generated, there is many variations. But there is bases that are commonly used.

An interesting post I recently saw on reddit explained that the ship look/type has inbuilt survivability from its HP.

Light Armor - 4 HP

Medium Armor - 6 HP

Heavy Armor - 8 HP

Someone's ship journey, quite cool to see so many different ship variations.

This was the first ship I bought (like 18 slots)



This was my first 48 slot ship:



This is my current ship, still have my eyes open in case I find a really cool one, but i do like the cockpit of this one.

I went back to my first solar system and haven't had 1 ship or tool with more slots than my current. Maybe that's a inbuilt game thingy?

I'm still in my first solar system and on my 6th ship. Each one increased by 1 slot.

Yep, the game will give you either -1, same or +1 slots for your ship.
I had a few bad runs, like 4 -1's in a row, but then had about the same +1's. Its an average I guess, just keep at it Sgt, I was averaging +5 slots per 3 hour session. The grinding the ships was annoying but worth it in the end. Since I got to 48 slot and maxed it, then I stocked up on resources and came across a ship I liked better, so with resources on hand I could fix most of it. I needed to collect a few and then continue.

I came across this ship:

I had the resources on hand to fully fix it up.


I am happy with maximising the synergy bonus from modules
and a full resource stockpile ready for the next ship I like better!

Still better than going to a crash site and there's no crashed ship there. I got 2 of them in a row yesterday.
