Well after downloading the update, it looks like I'll have to restart because I can't reach my base because it's literally up in the air.

Is relocating your base an option? Does this require physical disassembly?

It is possible. You simply find a new location and claim it. The old base will be removed and a percentage of the materials you used to build the original will appear in a locker in the new base. Once you rebuild a terminal any worker you hired will take its place. Pretty painless really.

Thinking I might try this game again after I finish Infamous and Yakuza.

Yeah, update drops in the summer so soon as that's out I'll get back on it with a fresh start.

Only days away now. Really looking forward to seeing what new. I've not had my PS4 booted up in months, and barely at all this year so not seen it for a good while. Plus it will be enhanced on the One X :)

Really looking forward to it. I've been holding off playing my copy since release until it was finally 'finished'.

I'm more than tempted to go back and have another bash at this. I'll clearly have to start a new game mind but that's cool.

I played it hard for a few weeks at launch, I enjoyed it for what it was - a relaxing space exploration game but I understood all the criticism, personally I wasn't as upset as some people were.

Great to see that it's a free update too, even with the price hike at CEX, £12 is still a very cheap price for it.

I have it on disc but very tempted to pick it up digital next time it's a tenner. In fact, if anyone wants to swap my PS4 disc copy for ten quid PSN credit hit me up!

Really tempted by this!

I don't and have never owned the game. Was intrigued in the lead up to the original launch and got scared off by all the hullabaloo. I've been hearing for a long time about the positive steps the dev has been taking to improve things and felt like I would probably jump in one day, but this new update might just be the one that tips me over the edge.

Also would like to support and reward the developer for all the effort they've made with it. I felt they got a little shafted by Sony around the launch and hung out to dry. They were a small team thrust into the spotlight with their game championed as a major exclusive by Sony (I'm sure they weren't complaining at the time mind!), but then when things started to go wrong Sony distanced themselves pretty quick and I seem to remember Shuhei Yoshida somewhat throwing Sean Murray under the bus at one point.

Kudos to them for getting their heads down and doing right by the people that bought their game. Looks incredible!

Just be aware that it's a 'grinding for loot' game, and there's not a lot more to it than that.

I have no axe to grind, and I'm wondering whether I'm doing the game a disservice here, but I don't think I am. If sandbox crafting is your thing (think chopping trees in Minecraft) then go for it. It's good for a few hours of that :)

I think a good number of people were expecting an Elite style game, but it’s closer to Terraria really. It still is, even with all the new additions the space combat and exploration side isn’t what it does best.

Yes, Terraria is a good comp!

Funnily enough Elite eventually devolves into grind as well, but there is a lot to learning how to actually fly, that masks that for a good while.

I'm sure they added proper quests at some point, didn't they?

The quests are largely 'go and grind this stuff' but there are some narrative quests, yes. I really enjoyed them, and found certain quest locations amazingly atmospheric, as probably outlined on the first few pages of this thread from memory.

It is very much a new game now. Completely reworked crafting system, space stations are FULL of aliens, ships kick up dust when they fly low, sharing a base, helping each other with materials, there's even ammunition in the game now that you have to craft.. I don't recall that before, sure you have to 'load' the weapons up with elements but they've added so many levels to things. Anyone thinking of returning I would suggest starting over, at least until you work out how the game works now.

Yeah man, I remember them saying you should start over a few months after launch when they released a patch - so this, is a no brainer.

Cool, I'm encouraged to give this another go.
