I'm amazed how no one has heard of Noctis.

 

Look it up, it's a DOS-coded game by this one Italian dude which is basically this but with crappy graphics. It features a completely unique galaxy with 8 billion stars and well over 100 billion planets. It's also free, but you need to either find a windows port or run it through DOSbox.

 

Regardless I'm hype for this game. But everyone's acting like this has never been done before when it has.

I know guys have already talked about this but I haven't seen numbers.

Head Blown Fact: There are 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 possible planets in No Man's Sky. It would take us 585 billion years to discover every planet in No Man's Sky on PS4.

http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2014/08/26/exploring-18446744073709551616-planets-mans-sky/?cid=social_20140826_30474526

 

The more I read about this game, the more I'm leaning on getting it. The last game I played even remotely like this was way back in the day. It was called Star Fox 64. Yeah, its been awhile.

 

On another note, you know some guy or group of guys will try and visit them all just to prove them wrong. God I wish I had the time those guys have. I'm lucky to get on for one hour a day.

 

"I think there is an easter egg on that last planet, better go see" Just kidding. LOL

But what about PC , some modders can discover that in 5 years I guess /:

Assuming a modder could view one planet from orbit every second after five years he would have only seen 157,680,000 of planet variants in the game. Good guess but your way out.

Random question but does anyone think we'll find gas giants in this game? I'd love to fly through a giant ball of gas with life threatening lightning storms and insane winds within.

EDIT: And how about suns? Hopefully they are actually suns and have the power to burn us to death is we fly into it..

the game seems to be more focused on biological and terrestrial diversity than astronomical diversity.

so I'm going to guess no.

 

you might get to discover some basic cosmic events like meteors or stars at different stages of development, but I don't think the game has as much depth in that regard as it does for smaller events on a more local scale.

That's a real shame, eventually the lack of gas planets or sun like stars will start to get annoying for me.

EDIT:

 

 

 

This whole video was a good watch, i especially liked this quote though...

"You start in a galaxy, and then you're trying to get to the center of that galaxy. And then when you do, something happens, that is worth while seeking out, but the game doesn't end there."

I should stress that a lot of the video was about how the game has no set goal and you're not supposed to do anything to play properly.

Unless this game has some degree of reality, then flying through a gas giant would crush you the closer you get to the center.

And I think you mean stars? I'm pretty sure there will be stars as well as planets. Wouldn't make sense not to. Most planets form around stars, but are sometimes flung out into deep space because of close orbiting gas giants.

Also depending on the ship, I'm sure you'd burn to death well before you come close to the surface of a star. Even to the red dwarfs which are cooler than regular stars like our Sun.

The biggest question I have that hasn't been broached at all in any interview is if there will be any intelligent life in the early stages actually growing on planets that you discover.

 

They have spoke about other fleets and space stations so I assume there is other life out there but I'd like to see maybe cavemen, or pirates sailing alien seas. Basically other cultures at different stages of development.

 

We've seen plenty of variations on animals fish and dinosaurs but haven't seen any type of humanoids on planets yet.

I'm guessing there's no "intelligent" life aside from other players and possible NPC characters.

you're talking about possibly encountering creatures that are like humans but not human, based on the random fauna generation on each planet.

 

there's probably some pretty advanced lifeforms, but from everything we've been shown so far, they're likely just wild/feral creatures.

it doesn't seem like there's going to be any intelligent aliens to deal with unless they're just another surprise that hasn't been unveiled.

 

the developers have been hinting at some mysterious but significant discovery that players will make when they eventually reach the center of the galaxy. maybe this is a clue that there's some other kind of advanced civilization to be found. maybe reaching the center of the galaxy triggers some massive event like an intergalactic war between different space factions. who knows...

I hope the small dev team takes their time with this game. The hype is getting bad. What I mean by that is it's getting to a point where it's so high that people are going to possibly be really disappointed at release.

 

Personally, even if this game turns out to be 90% exploration I'll be happy. But that's just me. Other people have higher expectations.

yeah, i think you'll find i said sun like stars in one of my posts, and as for basing the game on reality, i would hope it would be loosely based to allow some sort of exploration inside the gas giants, im sure the devs imagination could stretch to make some sort of space craft upgrade, making you able to withstand high pressures, etc.

What I want to know is, apart from exploration what else do you do in this game?

Anything traditional like in other space sims like trading, mining, pirating, bounty hunting, police enforcement?

 

I know there will be PVP but seeing as their epeening to make the game world massive to the point of ridiculousness, encountering other players might be a rare opportunity...assuming that everyone spawns in random locations.

Well I know you can mine. The mining is set out so you can mine a substance from one planet and then get another substance from another planet combine them to make rare ores that you can then sell at space stations for varying prices. Bountys I think are confirmed for hunting down wanted factions for other factions. You can also attack anyone you please but they have advised that may not be very wise from the beggining in your starter ship.

 

You can buy new ships when at space stations but only ships that are currently docked at that station. You will also be able to upgrade your "omni tool weapon" and I think your charachter as for your ship I'm not to sure.

 

If you befriend a certain faction then there's a chance they will send out Ai ships to help you every now and again.

Okay so mining, bounty hunting, and trading.

Sounds like your typical space sim but with a ridiculously massive playing space.

 

I hope the PC version will have TrackIR support. If it does then I just might buy it when it comes out.

They've been testing out oculus rift with the game so I imagine they would be looking at trackir also.

Bump Chicka Wah Wah:

 

 

 

Can't wait for this game. I also feel eager to try out Elite: Dangerous and Star Citizen whenever it's gonna come out. I'm guessing No Man's Sky is a more casual experience than those two though. Probably a good place to start before going into a space sim.

Star Citizen is overhyped garbage.

if you want to play something awesome right now to gear you up for No Man's, go with Elite: Dangerous.

 

it's a little more 'hardcore' than No Man's will probably be, like it's definitely a traditional Space Sim, but it's also very accessible and well-balanced. you don't have to worry about learning all of the most complex details about the universal lore or mechanics unless you really want to get super advanced. there's plenty to do and enjoy at a 'casual' pace. E:D can be played solo or online. there's an MMO aspect to it but most of the game can also be done singleplayer. if you want something that's even more casual than that, you could try Starpoint Gemini.

I'm pretty excited about this game but I'm also concerned. The procedural generation concept can be a fantastic thing or make things very dull. If 80% of the planets/animals/etc. are the same or very little variation...it could get boring very fast.

I think it will be more of an event when you actually find a planet that supports life and the chances of you actually coming across the same life form would have a very remote chance.

The creatures, plants and rocks are apparently procedurally generated as well.

I watched this interview where he explained throughly how it works; basically just like the planets, there is an infinite number of creature and plant variations (who, judging by the previews on the video, are variations that look quite distinctive from each other).

I am so getting this ^_^

New video released yesterday (unfortunately IGN, but hey):



Looks pretty interesting all in all (this is the first time I've ever really looked into the game, don't shoot me). I've always wanted a good free roam space RPG-like game on consoles, indie or otherwise.

I must admit after the E3 presentation this year compared to there others they seriously downplayed this title. I caught this footage this morning and now seeing the inventory system in use along with the mining system upgradable guns and mods for them I'm feeling a bit more confident that this is shaping up to be a really good title. Most of my concerns have been addressed now that there would be a lack of stuff todo. I also like the fact that planets will have cave system to find and explore hopefully we can make a mining operation on a planet and dig strait down with the destructible environment.

I do like these kinds of games where you can wander around freely and stumble upon new things without it feeling too much like the game is forcing these encounters on you. It feels more adventurous when the game isn't always telling you what to do. I hope there's enough variety to the procedural generation though so that it won't feel repetitive.

This game seems like a nice concept and all but I want to see some interplanetary empire building. I want to be able to upgrade to a ship the size of the USS Sulaco!

Eve: Online has huge factions and lots of big spaceships, but it's a top-down game. Not sure if you can do that in Elite: Dangerous. Maybe Star Citizen will allow that.
