    I'm pretty sure there is still a decent amount of planned creation for the different systems in the game. I mean... yea, it IS a procedurally generated game, but only to an extent. The planets have to be discovered... and when they are, it says whoever discovered it. It kinda seems like the locations and ecosystems of the planets was somehow planned and calculated, and they let the game engine take it from there.

    Are you going to be able to fast travel to previously explored planets? Or do you have to find them again.

    I'd love to be able to develop clones, leave them on the planet to colonize, come back a week later and see a sprawling settlement. Come back a month later and see that a band of clones revolted, started their own colony and declared war on the original settlement.

    With only 6gb of game it seems that assets will be severely limited so you will see a lot of repetition in environments and creatures.

    Are all explorable planets said to be procedurally generated with the same 6GB worth of random assets? Or are there different tiers of explorable planets - some that get the total random treatment, some that are specifically designed and populated, and maybe some that are milestone planets that will only be discovered once and perhaps open new options?

    Hmm... interest building...

    Planets will be different depending on how far away from the star they are, for example a planet that is close to the star will be hot, and a planet that is far will be cold, Not all planets will have life.

    I wonder what is at the center of the universe, I guess that isn't procedural.

    For those who don't know what No Man's Sky is, this explains it a bit better than those new short little video's.... it explains how procedural generation works in NMS, it's quite interesting.

    I just hope we won't see so much texture popping on PC, since almost every video shows them, especially when flying around.

    I used to do this all the time, i've quit watching any gameplay from popular games.

    And when they release i'm not interested anymore in them cause i watched too much of the game.
