The 10,000th "Colonia milestone post," go!
Seriously, I did make it to Colonia after days and days, I put the game down for a few months waiting for Odyssey to release on consoles.
I only found out recently it's been delayed on consoles.
So I picked it back up, and went and discovered dozens of first-scan water worlds, ammonia worlds, and a few earth-likes, and that is something I do not regret at all 🙂 My name is all over the galaxy!
I also discovered, toward the tail-end of the journey, that you can use Neutron stars to beef up your FSD. Whoops.
Did it all in a diamondback explorer. Pretty nice ship, but I'd prefer something a bit bigger, you know? Bulkier. Massier.
So, first thing I do in Colonia is buy myself a Type 7 transport ship with my money!
… But it turns out it's barely viable for exploration(my main mode of money-making), as it heats up like a kettle, meaning every time I charge-up by a sun will be a gamble without Heatsinks, and I can't find any people selling modules in Colonia to soup up my 7.
Thus, I figure I sell my Type 7, take my diamondback to Sagittarius A, and sell all my exploration data when I get to the explorers Anchorage. Cannot wait.
From there, I can either:
- Fly into the nearest sun, and spawn back in the Bubble. Then I'll buy a Krait Phantom.
- Wait in Explorer's Anchorage until Odyssey eventually releases on consoles.
What would you recommend?
BTW, is 250 Million a modest sum overall? I stopped by one of the outposts on the Colonia space-highway, and got like 30 mil for whatever I sold. That normal?
