Another update since I started on RDR2. There's going to be a ton of stuff by the time I get back.
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

These updates are coming too fast for me to keep up! Another bunch of stellar additions (though I was a teensy disappointed that the collect and exhibit artifacts from planets didn't seem to extent to the treasures you find under ruins...though I can't believe I'm complaining lol). I wish I had time to play at the moment :(

It's been too long since I posted NMS photos, and I have a tonne of them :)

Let's start with some space photos:

Obligatory heroic pose shot:
Spoiler


This was really cool. I got involved in a space battle, but it got too heated for me, and I had to escape to a planet's surface. The pirates followed me, but so did the authorities, and then they engaged in a long battle in the skies above me.
Spoiler


Flying through the thin skies of a moon, it's planet and a sister moon nearby, and the sun ahead.
Spoiler


This shot of my science frigate is very 2001:

...and sometimes you just have to be a little immature :)

You suspect you've gone too far when you start taking photos of rocks...

Are tree shots any better?
Spoiler


What about lens flare from a gravitino ball (this was on a beautiful paradise moon which also had extreme frenzied sentinel activity unfortunately)
Spoiler


Same moon. This was one of the prettiest animals I've come across so far. It walked very gracefully, and what the image doesn't show is that it was also about two and a half metres tall.
Spoiler


The orange moon is the paradise extreme sentinel moon. The blue one is a frozen moon. And the planet itself was entirely dead, no atmosphere. I like the contrast between the three.
Spoiler


This was on one of the community portal missions. The first anomalous planet/moon of light I'd encountered. All the planets in that system were so close to each other (as this shot illustrates).
Spoiler


A couple more arty shots of the same planet and its strange installations.
Spoiler


My big friend shows me around his planet:
Spoiler


Trying out a filter
Spoiler


Two predators chasing this poor bug (there were actually three chasing it, but I couldn't get them all in the shot):

Okay, so this was on another of the community portal missions. Someone(s) had built this amazing Pac-Man base and left a message inviting other players to join them in their corner of the galaxy. The base is actually a starting point for an exocraft track which ran through tunnels under the planet's surface.
Spoiler


So after the Visions update hit, I started experimenting with underwater shots:
Spoiler


This, I think, was another community portal mission planet. Not a filter effect. Light was being devoured so everything was black, white, and red.
Spoiler


New types of marine animals with the Visions update:
Spoiler


Another couple of underwater shots, of my freighter (and some fish):
Spoiler


A freighter fleet orbiting an Earth-like planet:
Spoiler


I came across this planet which was largely flat apart from some isolated steep elevations. The trees on the planet were the biggest I have seen so far.

This was quite the moody planet:
Spoiler


One of the new types of crashed freighters:
Spoiler


Snow planets often make for the best shots:
Spoiler


Perfect parking job...
Spoiler


The anomalous planets now have strange living organisms on them - like these two balls which roll around unhurriedly.
Spoiler


My current fleet, slowly growing in size:
Spoiler


And I FINALLY got an exocraft! Of course the first thing I did was jump it off an enormous cliff...

Nice pictures, I haven't played since the latest update, the palette is definitely more varied, and it looks like they've added even more texture, and lighting effects in space.

The pictures almost don't do the game justice, looking out on these planets vistas when exploring is something else. I've been avoiding the reddit thread these days so all the new creatures will be a surprise when I get back to it, but I've already seen some vastly improved plants and moving wildlife, stuff that looks truly alien, rather than the weird cobbled together land animals of earlier versions.
