Finally, No Man's Sky is here. The most eagerly anticipated indie game - dare I say ever - has seamlessly descended through the video game stratosphere, sliced through some stormy clouds and after a few bumps and bugs aside, has made a fairly smooth landing.
For all the hype surrounding the game's literally unfathomable scale (quintillions of planets, is it? Or is it kajillions? Let's just say sh*tloads), not many of us really know what to do in No Man's Sky.
It's a survival game at heart, sure, but how do we actually go about surviving?
No Man's Sky doesn't tell you much about what to do with yourself upon starting the game, so I'm here to do that job instead.
Here are 15 tips and tricks that will help you get to grips with Hello Games' truly spectacular (if not a tad lonely) universe...
15. Use Your Spaceship As A Giant Inventory Box
Considering that resource-gathering is the thing that you'll realistically spend most of your time doing in No Man's Sky, you'd have thought that the inventory system would be a little more accommodating. While it's much improved on the beta, the Exosuit is still quite limited in its carrying capacity.
Once again however, your ship comes to the rescue. The Day One Patch for the game has boosted your ship inventory space five-fold - that is, you can keep five times the amount of a particular resource in a single slot.
To transfer materials over to your ship, highlight it in your inventory when you're near your ship, and hold Triangle.
