After discussing it on the podcast, we decided to make a video introducing No Man’s Sky to someone who has never played the game before.
Admittedly, I did accidentally use the words Freighter and Frigate interchangeably here. Note that the Freighters are the big ships that you can build a base on, and the frigates are the smaller (still big) ships that you send on expeditions. Also, a correction – I said I thought you could carry over the base you built to a new freighter once you buy a new one. As I understand it, as of this writing, that feature was removed. So you’ll have to rebuild your freighter if you get a new one.
