More about how "getting started" involves unpacking/unfolding so much stuff, and that there's no way to basically pause it while I run an unexpected errand, an issue I admit is not unique to EGS.

But if you want a real rant, I'm going to rant about repair pads again. So dang finicky and hard to figure out.
Also my drop ship flipped onto its side after I exited it while trying to figure out exactly where the ground was, and then I couldn't jetpack up high enough to get back into the cockpit to straighten it out.
Also I hate mining promethium. The blue dust kicked up while mining promethium happens to be the same color as the ore scanner outlines, and so I have trouble keeping the drill(s) trained on the nodes.

Personally, I'm just really, really sick of constantly having to remove and re-add the docking feet on my HVs to get them to dock back in the CV when I'm done mining each node. It gets repetitive real fast. Oh, and the fact that I have to have either separate hardware or a separate windows server environment in order to run the really real EGS server software and have any hope of actually controlling things, instead of just running a big "co-op" game that, even though it's based on a single player scenario, sets at least half the planetary and moon playfields to PvP zones.

I'm not saying that Eleon rolling the version of Unity back to 2017 has caused complete and utter chaos in the difficulty settings, but I am saying that since they rolled the versioning back yesterday, each time I start a new Co-Op game (on any difficulty, custom or preset), the first drone to show up is a Base Attack Drone which one-shots me with a rocket and then destroys my base before I can get within pistol range of it. Oh, and the drones that had previously had their sentry gun targeting disabled are definitely targeting them again. If things are going to be this unbalanced, they really need a peaceful mode other than Creative, which is just featureless planets and free building mode.

The only "fix" I've found for this is to have a HV with miniguns spawned and ready to go before I place my first BA starter block, though that means you can't have the game set to where you have to have a base platform to spawn stuff (unless you get lucky finding a POI you can steal).

That face when you explore a system and find a bunch of conveniently-placed deposits, make the jumps back to your base, build a bunch of autominers, make the jumps back to the system, land your vehicle, and then discover you forgot to bring all your brand new autominers and they're still in the constructor back at your base. I mean, I'm not made of pentaxid you know.

Another song we have Bo Burnham to thank for.

I am going to be sending this to so many people over the remainder of my lifetime.

Gas, you know there's an asteroid in Akua orbit named "Magnesium Asteroid" that's actually made of pentaxid, right? And another one in TS sector that's actually made of silicon, and a "Pentaxid Asteroid" in TS that's actually Promethium?

I did not. I will fix that when I get my internet back.

Might want to go over all the other sectors, too. Just in case. I haven't been everywhere yet, but that's 3 out of 3 sectors with mislabeled asteroids.

And no rush, it's not like I can't tell by mining it, and I carry my own waypoint labeler. :)

Coincidentally I only edited the asteroids of those three sectors to remove magnesium. apparently the guts got changed but the name didn't for some reason even though I specifically remember fixing both. It'll take some looking into.

Didn't get online in time to gas up my CV this morning.
My food all spoiled.
Why didn't I remember my /VB in time? Whyyyyyy?
