    I believe the answer is "Yes."

    Actually had my first contact with Artemis the other day, too. Had to find his beacon on a planet that hovered around -150 degrees. Did what I needed to do to activate his beacon thing there and set my ship down on a different planet before I saved for the night. The weather classification was "painfully hot rain." The temperature was 303 degrees F.

    Ideally after you get someone at the tailgate to fire up "Natural Born Killaz."

    They also had chessboxing, much to the delight of Wu-Tang Clan fans everywhere.

    So I went ahead and warped, and the only system that was with in reach had a grand total of one planet. Since the regular temperature on the planet was about 140 degrees and I had gotten the antimatter formula, I put together another warp cell and kept following the path. Now I'm in a system with four planets and I've met "Polo," who is analyzing some data that I gave him from my travels. I also traded a couple hundred nanites at one of the space stations for an upgrade to my scanner. It upgrades the rewards you get for scanning plants and animals. So now, rather than getting about 500 or 1,000 credits every time I scan a plant or an animal, the number is usually over 20,000. One bigger animal I scanned gave me over 80,000. So that's helping my bank account significantly. I got this game the day it came out, and this is by far the deepest I've ever gone into the game. I might even actually get one of those Atlas Passes this time.

    Still in my initial system, and while part of me is screaming to go around and find all the animals on those planets (there's only three planets), I have a feeling that would drive me nuts, so I might go ahead and warp to the next system here. Hope I can get my hands on a different multi-tool here shortly. I'm still using the five-slot one that I started with and there's only one open slot on it. At least it has a terrain manipulator on it.

    If you've built the portable refiner, you can make chromatic metal by dumping copper into it. Think it's 2 pieces of copper for 1 chromatic metal.

    Slowly making my way through the beginning portions of the game again. In a system where there are only three planets and I now have everything to warp to the next system, but I might go back to a couple of places and see if I can't find more animals for the credits. Yesterday I was looking for buried relics as part of one of the quests when I get a notification that a "superheated storm" is coming my way. (I think that was the verbiage the game used.) I'm about 400 meters (or whatever the unit of measure is) from my ship and the "four walls and a roof" structure I built as one of the quests. Thinking I have enough time to get back to my ship, I start hauling ass that direction. I get nearly halfway there, and the temperature shoots up to about 250 F (normal temps on this planet are between 85-90) because the storm is on top of me. Luckily I had enough juice in my Terrain Manipulator to drill a hole deep enough to drop into and wait the storm out. Wound up in a cave where I could mine a few things while I was waiting. This game has changed so much since the beginning. It's more difficult than it was, that's for sure.

    I had one instance where I had one come after me, and when I took that one out a clock started that said that the sentinels were searching for me (I can't recall the exact verbiage that was used). But a timer counted down and when it got to zero they went back to leaving me alone. Another time I had two of them after me at once and just had to run for it until the timer counted down again. I thought that jumping in my ship might do the trick (couldn't take off because I hadn't completed my repairs yet), but they just sat outside the ship and waited for me.

    I went and re-started. . .again. Wound up with a starting planet that has toxic storms and is labeled as "lawless," which apparently means that every time I attempt to collect Ferrite Dust and there's a Sentinel within about half a mile I'm going to get shot at. Only played long enough to get the repairs on my ship completed, but it does seem like a much more difficult game than it was before the Next update.

    Bringin' it back again because we're a few days away from the update. https://www.theguardian.com/games/2018/jul/20/no-mans-sky-next-hello-games-sean-murray-harassment-interview "I remember getting a death threat about the fact that there were butterflies in our original trailer, and you could see them as you walked past them, but there weren't any butterflies in the launch game. I remember thinking to myself: 'Maybe when you're sending a death threat about butterflies in a game, you might be the bad guy.'" That's pretty solid logic, actually.

    One of our local 7-11s has Cherry Vanilla Pepsi, which is awesome. That's the only place in town I've managed to find it at.

    Jesus, that superplex spot. I mean, I knew there was no chance they were going to the outside there, but still. Damn.
