I did not know this. Not that it matters that much tbf, there is really very little pressure. I nailed the run going the long way around on my first try

Yeah it has to be doable this way because of the "beginner's luck" achievement. So it's pretty generous about the timing.

I think a lot of people hear the end-game track that starts playing when you remove the ATP core and misinterpret it as being the supernova track because of the similarity, and start rushing way harder than necessary. Assuming you grab the core as early as possible, you should have enough time to complete the whole run with 10~ minutes to spare. Even if you miss the first or second pass of the sand column you'll have plenty of time to take it slowly through Dark Bramble.

A melancholy ending if there ever was one. Still helping create a new universe is certainly a neat way to go.

Just finished this game the other day. It went from 'huh, that does look pretty interesting' to my absolute favourite game in years.

I think I spent way more time on the warp core run than I needed to. Because Ash Twin doesn't open up until later in the cycle I went straight to Dark Bramble, tried finding the vessel without using the escape pod, then if I could I input all the coordinates and left my beacon there so I could definitely find the vessel next time. If all that went well then I'd go to ATP, grab the core then just plug it in and flip the switch. I practiced that loop about six or so times before one really went well and I thought 'poo poo, this is it.' and grabbed the core to do it for real. That music kicking in for the final run was so drat good. Real Sunshine vibes.

Anyone do it that way or am I alone in making things needlessly complicated ?

Good game!


I encourage anyone who played the game and has a VR headset to give the mod a try. It's absolutely amazing how huge and real everything feels with it. I guess I'm really lucky because i have absolutely zero motion sickness flying in zero G in VR, it's more the walking on planets that gives me issues. I still have to curb my speed though and given the clunky controls of tools in the VR mod I doubt anyone could ever play the game this way as a first attempt, but it's really great for visiting places you love in the game.

Tirranek, leaving your probe at the vessel is redundant, it's selectable as a waypoint after you've found it the first time.

IF YOU SEE ME TALKING ABOUT BEANIE BABIES, PLEASE TELL ME TO

EAT. SHIT.


It's still important if you want to get the achievement for winning the game in the first cycle, to be fair.

Well no, cause you can still do it with time to spare by going the signal way.
