I've kept my No Man's Sky save state. It's just I'm such a wanderer I've yet to set down any real roots. I tend to just build enough infrastructure on interesting planets to access them via a Star Portal...and then never go back to them ever again.

I mean, it makes sense. The species of reality abandoned dirt side life in favour of operating out of their fleets and space stations. There are advantages to being mobile when dealing with sentinels, and lets face it: each other.
It would also make sense to ramp up the abandoned stuff.
Long story short: that looked awesome, and I love that no man's sky became one of the few games I never uninstall.

... It's already out?!?!?!?!?!
*checks steam update queue*
... it's already out...
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star...
In all seriousness, maybe it's because it was "Baby's First Freighter", they aren't bad. Atmosphere is brilliant, but the combat is pretty meh. Granted all I had to fight were automated security systems. It costs 5 million to get the coordinates to one (or you get one free, I assume per week, on the Anomaly). Each system has exactly ONE abandoned freighter. You cannot save while on the freighter.
5 mil seems steep, but you'll walk out with plenty of salvage that will more than likely recoup the cost. Turning info into Guild Reps nets you racial standing, turning info into the Scrap Dealer you buy the code for nets you Nanites.
Biggest thing you need is Cold resistance. There are portable heaters scattered around to let you rebuild your basic resist, but more cold resist (and the Ion Batteries/Dioxite to keep that resist up), the better.
EDIT: Keep in mind, this is coming from someone with all Exosuit upgrades/S Class Technology and a Class A Multi-tool with S Class Upgrades.

So not sure if it was a happy accident, but I did an Abandoned Freighter mission in a system with an Atlas Terminal. The story of that freighter revolved around observing said Atlas Terminal. Was a neat little bit of world building.
Also got to deal with something other than automated security. The same kind of nameless horrors you face when picking up Whispering Eggs. They've been significantly depowered from their planetside counterparts, but it's very Dead Space Necromorph stuff.
Also did some experimenting with the rewards. You can sell the data you get from Freighters on the Galactic Market for peanuts. Also don't get Freighter Technology from Engineering Consoles. For whatever reason, you can't actually install said technology in Freighter Technology tabs, meaning you're always using up cargo slots. Meanwhile, if you opt for the portable bulkhead - which is to expand your freighter's cargo capacity...I'm certain this has to be a bug. But it let me unlock ALL the slots for the Freighter. I went from a 33 slot Freighter to a 42 slot.

I love how this game went from "bastard son" to "standard of redemption".
And in about five years, when they've done a dozen more updates adding content and options no one could conceive of and are bored with the whole thing: they'll drop the dev tools and it'll go from epic to legendary.

The patch notes make the claim that existing planets aren't modified and player bases won't be affected, but that isn't quite true. Several planets I had bases on have changed from anomalous or lifeless into deserts and the mineral deposits I mined have changed as well, my favorite paradise base is now a grey swamp, and my activated indium base was sucked below the bedrock of the planet.
Still, overall very pleased with the update so far. Lightning storms and volcanoes are nice. Spotted a couple of the large planetary archives and some of the robotic fauna. No sandworm yet, but I'll keep looking.

The update seems to be running well under Proton, outside of the discovery server issue. Looks like a couple of my planets have changed hazards, but I'm not sure if that was this update or the beyond update that caused it. Some of these worlds I haven't visited in a LONG time.
BTW, my No Man's Sky friend code is 7M5W-5G8N-BXY8G. Don't need if you're playing on Steam, but if you play on console, or got the game from one of the other storefronts, it will allow crossplay.

I play this occasionally on the xbox one, I love this game but I hate that they never added any new achievements with all the cool new content they have added.
Biggest complaint is the fact they didn't add more base building items or any automation for getting materials.
I have almost finished it just need to jump to the center and play permadeath mode and I will have a achievements except for the extreme planet one
