Running Up That Hill

Final Fantasy XV has a really neat photo feature, where one of the characters takes pics while you’re out doing whatever, and when you rest you can look through them and save the ones you like. It’s pretty cool, and negates me having to get cool shots of things almost entirely.

This is one of my current fave shots. I was a little under leveled for this dungeon, so it was a real adventure, and then I had to run up this lava flow to take a pic for another quest. The lava was, in fact, hot and deadly. I got it done, but it was a struggle, and then this shot was one of the photos when I rested that night. Love it!

Current Sims 4 Project

I’ve been working on this particular lot for entirely too long. I’m still not done with everything, but I’m DONE, if you know what I mean. Just tired of working on it. Later, I’ll move some sims in and see how it goes. Might have to make some changes to account for pathing. Maybe not! Hope not. 🤣Front view oh a pair of two story townhomes separated by a single story central lobby. The style is late Victorian, with grey brickwork and dark wood and ironwork trim.

Greedfall Done!

At long last, I have completed my first play through of Greedfall. I count it amongst the best RPGs I’ve ever played. Truly enjoyed the game, even though the controls were a little weird. Eventually, I’ll play through it again … when I’ve forgotten the choices I made this time. Maybe my story will go differently!

No Man’s Sky – Leviathan

Found an S Class Multitool cabinet on the Leviathan Expedition route, between the first and second anchor points! And it’s in a pirate system! Built a little base and published it. Here’s the relevant info, so you can find it too.

The system is 555 LY from the first anchor point … a Vykeen system, pirate controlled, G5f star, high tech economy, 6 planets. The system name on the galaxy map is Yasolais VII, but the system was renamed to Tortuga, so either name may show. If you have the portal coordinates, here’s a screen cap with those.

The base name is S Class Multi – Pirate System on the planet Thwic Delta. If for some reason, the base marker isn’t showing, the coordinates are +12.34 +96.47. It’s a hyperborean world with ice storms, few sentinels, but many predators. Be careful!

Reloading on the frozen planet presents a somewhat dull little pistol. I checked some of the other planets, and reloading on the corrosive planet presented me with this nice brown rifle with 19 open slots. The others were variations on this one but horribly colored. Sorry, I didn’t write them down.

Just a bit to the south of the minor outpost is a crashed freighter (sorry, no marker), and about a 30 second pulse flight south is some runaway mold. There are two comm balls at the mold, and these can usually be seen from the outpost. If not, maybe reload, or just fly southward slowly. It’s about nine balls and worth blasting!

Hope people are able to find this and find it helpful. I was super excited to run across an S Class multitool, because the one I started with was terrible, and I hated it. Now I can boldly go kill sentinels and gather whispering eggs! 🤣

Good luck on your expedition! Stay safe!

Leviathan Expedition

The redux of the Leviathan Expedition started today in No Man’s Sky. I didn’t do this one the first time around, because it seemed hard and irritating and I had other more important hard and irritating things to do at the time. I still didn’t want to do it this time, because I just don’t like permadeath/survival/rogue-like gameplay. But … it’s the only expedition I haven’t done at least once, so I’m going to try to get through it.

So far, I’ve put in five and a half hours. The first iteration is done, and I got a few milestones done in the other iterations. Felt like a good time to take a break, mostly because I need to figure out what I’m going to do to get together two thousand nanites quickly and easily. The next anchor point is in a green star system, so I’m gonna need the correct warp drive upgrade. Ugh. So expensive! I currently have two hundred nanites. It’s gonna be a slog.

But it’s been kinda fun, I guess? I’ve only died the one time you have to in order to complete a milestone, but I’ve also not gone and done some of the things that feel like they will lead to dying. Like killing sentinels. Or collecting whispering eggs. I don’t plan to die a second time, but it may very well happen. Ok, probably happen.
