This is what I'm waiting on, too. I hate not being able to turn the camera 180 degrees without seeing grass suddenly pop into existence a few feet away.
It’s tough, I played a bit last night through the glitches. I was building storage units on my freighter, back to back and in between the rooms you could literally see space outside. Was scared to walk over that spot so I had to take the long way around. I’ve played about 10 hours since Beyond launches, but would rather hold off a bit until it’s in a better state.

...still it’s hard to stay away because I love this game.

So I took a break from my 51hr normal mode play to mess around in the sandbox mode

They gave me a crashed class A ship to fix, everything is free and it was on a blissful planet

My God that mode is seductive

What are these physical 'standing' rewards? I got some Korvax and Mercenary standing in a form that takes up storage space. I can't tell if I'm supposed to keep this stuff for some reason or it's just an extra step to getting more units as mission rewards.

That's how I feel too, honestly. I've put 30 hours in since Beyond launched, and about 150 total since the game first released. I love it, and it's hard to pull myself away and wait for these technical issues to be sorted out, but at the same time they're really putting a damper on an otherwise pretty great expansion. Especially when I think about the fact that it wasn't always like this.

Anyone offer a little advice? My Base Computer mission is now at the "Medium Refiner" I have all the mats to build it but it's red no matter where I try to place it and says "Cannot Build /// Must be attached to a structure"

I've tried outside. I've tried on the floor of my base. Bug? Or am I missing something?
Just create a floor with a flat metal piece or similar and place it on top of it.

FWIW the gaps between storage units are visual only, you can safely walk over them

So after 2.06 I was getting a lot of graphical errors, whole forest of tree leaves popping in at once, my ship phasing thru a landing pad and the ground below.

Now 2.07 update is downloading and stuck.

The game is just unplayable to me. The crashes and losing all your progress as a joiner in multiplayer is still there and it's too often to be okay. The controls need tons of work, and lots more options, especially turning off hand pointer movement. That being on by default in locomotion mode is just not acceptable.

Just tried PS4 online in the anomaly works so much better no crashes so far only noticed a little bit of lag when entering I also saw a possessed starship going crazy in mid air. Did my first mission with a random player it was the space pirate fight I was worried I was going to shoot my team mate but we completed the mission.

So I located this giant portal and fed it all the mats I needed to "activate" all the symbols. Now it asked me to travel through the portal or request the planet's address. I tried to travel through, but it gave me a bunch of blank spaces with nothing filled in. Then I requested the address and a bunch of symbols appeared on screen (took a screenshot).

What am I looking at here and is there a way to remember where this is and how to come back?

Did you find this randomly? Then that's the address you (or anyone else) can use to teleport there from another portal.

If it's the one you find through a quest, just keep following it. You don't need to remember the glyphs.

Do we have some performance thread for the PC version of this game? Tried the search function here, but couldn't find any.

As always, the updates gives me plenty of performance issues, and this is no exception.

1. Crazy amount of stuttering when flying.
2. Framerate dips from 60 to less then 30 when I go under a roof at a trading post.
We are having the same issues. 8800k 1080ti. For me, it runs usually at 45fps except in space where it's fine, everything on off, lowest, and Steam SS modifiers off. If you're near a base with a few rooms, forget it, it just freezes to 1fps and then you stick with a frozen headset for a minute as it loads or it crashes.

Returned to my old base to find everything's dead unless I'm burning tons of carbon or I scrounge up enough research for solar & batteries. Wires are always visible unless I tear the place apart to conceal them under floor panels.

Not excited by a content update forcing a bunch of busywork to regain what I had before.

Found this beautiful planet today, which unfortunately shows just how bad the pop-in and draw distance issues are. Right after I land I find a fairly dense, gorgeous forest and it all kinda goes downhill from there.

Yeah it's really annoying how so much is broken on crashed ships. Can't say I really liked the change. Same with the damaged machinery pods littered around planets. Why do I have to repair something to be able to salvage them? It's just more busy work :/
Yeah it's really annoying when 80% of the cargo slots are busted and require rare/expensive components to fix.

Ah think I got a bug... I had an old save from when Next came out and I jumped back in, so with beyond i just continued that save cause I was already 40+ hours in. Just got to the part where I had to make a Mind Arc, and I have made 6 of them now and the game keeps telling me to bring the Mind Arc to Artemis. But the point to go to just keeps switching between the Space Station and my portal on my base at the planet I’m at. Bummed. Can’t seem to get past this. Quick google search looks like it’s an older issue mainly on pc, but I’m on ps4pro.

Try Reseting the quest from the mission log screen. Start the quest again and it will spawn the quest for you in a closer system.

So I currently have 2 quest as primary missions both involving the Mind Arc. One is called The Space Anomaly, which requires me to talk of Null to Nada, which I’ve done, and then says to construct a Mind Arc, which I’ve also done multiple times and it’s unchecked. Then I have a primary mission named The First Traveler, which had the steps to building a Mind Arc, and the last step says to assemble a Mind Arc, but that’s also unchecked. Looks like I’m not getting it to recognize I have made the Mind Arc.

And I’m not seeing any way to reset these primary missions on ps4. Any suggestions?

Yeah the pop-in feels worse now than ever.
I've been playing on Xbox (X) and rocket-jumping everywhere - which I'm sure only makes things worse - and there were frequent moments when I landed and waited a second or two for the rocks to pop up all around me. Pretty jarring.

Also flying somewhat low to the ground kills my framerate.
I could always set it to "performance mode" I guess :/

I've been playing since Day 1 and had a similar experience last night when I loaded up the flat version to take some screens. It was a weird sensation after multiple days of just VR, like being ripped out of the world and looking at a facsimile through a window. Everything was sharper but less substantial, less real. NMS has always done a good job of making players feel small, but that really shines through with the sense of scale VR provides. Definitely tough if not impossible to go back.
I also will not play NMS on flatscreen now that I've played it in VR.... Also... the jet pack is super fun in VR. I think I'll be spending on upgrades to it just so I can jet pack more. Just finding those blue little plants is just awesome. Now I want a game where I have a full jetpack *grin*.

It's a shame you can't sit or ride animals in VR :(. Also, any other VR players find they cannot name their finds? It kinda freezes the game for me (like it brings up the text box but no keyboard and it does nto respond to my controller. THe game goes on in the background (and no, keyboard doesn't work either) and I found I can get it to return to the game by going to the desktop in my VR helmet and then back to the game. At which point it will have uploaded the find with the name it came with. I already reported the bug but it is consistant with me.. just wondering if anyone else has this or how it actually works when it works.

Also I have found 2 crashed ships that have no actual ships at them? Is this part of the game ( like can you find accidents that have no ships) or is that a bug too?

I had a bug where the ship model took a LONG time to load, even as the damage effects (smoke, fire) were present. I can't remember if I walked away from the area and came back, but it eventually appeared.
