QUICK GUIDE and REWARDS for Expedition 12 - Omega

QUICK GUIDE and REWARDS for Expedition 12 - Omega


Hi fellow travelers. I’m building this guide with images and all and I’ll share with the community soon. Please let me know if there’s anything to add, like some quick tips/reminders.


Starting the expedition from an existing save or from scratch

– If you want a new character, a new save, start the expedition from scratch on the main menu. You’ll keep your character, the ships you found, freighter, all multi-tools and items after you end the expedition – the game will convert your expedition save to a normal save.

– If you want you can use an existing character, start the expedition from the Space Anomaly on the Expedition Terminus, then transfer items and copy multi-tools/ships between your main character and the expedition character at any time using the terminus.

Recommended items to transfer

– Before starting the expedition, it’s recommended to transfer some items in the terminus, to save some time and give you more comfort during the journey, like:

Liquid Explosive (or Acid + Unstable Gel, or 25 Mordite + 200 Cactus Flesh + 200 Fungal Mold)
Economy Scanner
Advanced Mining Laser
Analysis Visor Upgrades
Hazard Protection Upgrades
Wiring Looms
Crystal Sulfide

– The current equipped multi-tool and ship of your main character can be copied to your expedition character and it’ll cost you nanites to do so.

– Your main character looks will be copied/transferred to your expedition character once you start the expedition.

– After you end the expedition, everything that remains in your inventories will be converted to units and your nanites and quicksilver will also be transferred to your main character.

– Don’t forget to copy the Starborn Runner ship (including the Photonix Core tech pre-installed in the ship) and the Atlas multi-tool from the expedition to your main character.


Reward: Starborn Runner ship with Photonix Core pulse drive

After you complete every phase of the expedition, you can claim your Starborn Runner ship.

This ship will have a Photonix Core tech installed.

Using the expedition terminus in the Anomaly, you can copy this ship (with the techs installed, but not the cargo items) to your main save.

You’ll then have a Starborn Runner on your expedition save and on your main save.

Before ending the expedition, you can pack the Photonix Core of your ship and send this tech to your main save using the terminus in the Anomaly.

Expedition Omega FAQ

Having finished the expedition (and watched the questions in this forum) here’s a handy FAQ!

General tips

  • Read all the tasks – they don’t have to be done in order. Some of them you can get out of the way early on. (scanning flora / fauna, learning words, pictures of different environments..)
  • At every space station, especially in the rendevous systems, scroll through all the other bases. Some of them will have super helpful names like “Airless photo op” or “Sunken Freighter here” or a list of available resources.
  • Most of the time it’s better to not be in multi-player mode – that will mean that resources others have gathered, beings in stations that have been talked to, ships that have been found – all these will still be available to you, where they probably won’t be in multi-player. However, whenever you visit the Anomaly it is nice to be in multi-player.
  • You can craft ammo out of ferrite. Super helpful for those pesky sentinels. Speaking of Sentinels, you can tunnel underground or dive into the water to escape them. Usually.
  • Once you go through the back hole, immediately go to the space station in that system and use the station teleporter to get back to your base or the previous system. Do NOT try to warp back to the 3rd rendevous, it will just make you frustrated.
  • The very first system you spawned in on has a planet that will work for the hot planet pic.
  • If you are reading this on Feb 19, Tier 5 community research isn’t done yet. If you want the rewards for that, don’t complete the expedition until that is done.

What do I take with me?

  • If you are a new player, not to worry! you will be able to collect what you need. Also look for other bases that are offering things (see tips above) The rest of this guide is for folks who aren’t starting a new save for the expedition.
  • If you have a main save, and want to bring stuff over – here are some things to consider.
    • Basic building blocks: 9999 stacks of carbon, ferrite, sodium, oxygen, chromatic metal, silver, tritium, di-hydrogen, ect
    • Special items: things to claim an interceptor (inverted mirror), things to make liquid explosive (acid, unstable gel), cadmium, salt
    • Things to make or save money: wiring looms, salvaged data, exosuit inventory modules, runaway mold or tainted metal to make nanites, high ticket items to sell (hot ice, floral samples, stasis pods, ect.)
    • Tech row: eh. not as helpful as you’d think, especially if you are bringing over things for nanites and selling. You could drop some S class stuff here for the exosuit? but especially if you plan to “buy” a copy of your multi-tool and ship, those should already be tricked out.
    • In general, the items and upgrades you really need to complete the tasks will be given to you or will be possible to obtain. For instance you start out with a portable refiner. Don’t buy the special star warp upgrades from the Anomaly – you’ll get them as a reward.

What can I take back?

  • All the expedition rewards will be available from the quicksilver booth in the anomaly on any save.
  • If you transferred from your main, you can use the same storage system to send stuff back (like companion eggs, other stuff you’ve collected that’s hard or expensive to get, resources if you want to)
  • Here I found the tech slots much more useful, taking back upgrades for use on other starships/multitools.
  • You will be able to buy back the ship you are in and the primary multi-tool you are carrying, so if you brought stuff over from your main, make sure you are back in them going back. You’ll be able to claim the reward ship and atlas staff at the quicksilver station.
  • Yeah, for real, you can only take back one ship and one multi-tool. so be sure the ones you want are the ones equipped.

What about my money / nanites / bases?

Ok – disclaimer. I haven’t actually completed the expedition yet, I’m waiting for the Tier 5 community research to complete. So I don’t know FOR SURE about this, but here’s what I’ve read.

  • Your bases will be available from your main.
  • Some of the stuff you didn’t take back with you will be converted into units and nanites.
  • Anything you buy with quicksilver on the expedition will also be available to claim on the main.
  • if someone who has completed the expedition wants to chime in with what happened to their units/nanites/quicksilver, that would be much appreciated!

Anything else interlopers? Feel free to chime in with tips or ask questions in the comments!

Starting a New Save Was Made ALOT Easier.

So I just started a new save for the new update and turned off Tutorial as I usually do and I noticed the early game was changed dramatically.

You no longer need to craft the scanner, analysis visor, and terrain manipulator on your starting multi-tool and you don’t need to repair OR even install the hyper drive on the radiant pillar.

With that said, the early game hazard protection buff you get at the start, is also gone. Which means at challenging survival difficulty, your hazard starts going down FAST. Still, removing the early tedium of repairing everything is a really really nice QoL change.

So after hundreds of hours of playing, I finally decided to go through the Galactic Core for the fir...

And promptly felt like a newb as I remembered after I went through that you should switch ships and your multi-tool to one of your basic ones. Ouch, fully kitted out Interceptor and multi-tool both full of broken slots! And the best part was that I had thrown out the repair kits that I had stockpiled because I never used them anyway…..

Hilbert seems pretty cool so far though!

Spoiler tagged so I don’t ruin the surprise for anyone who hasn’t done this!

OG player hooked... Again!

I remembered being extremely excited when No Man’s Sky was set to release. I preordered the game and was hooked from the get go. I played the heck out of the base version, did pretty much everything you could back then and just sorta moved on to other games as you do.

Fast forward a few years and I recently decided to dive back in again, this time on the PS5 and I’m just blown away by the amount of content this game has received since launch. Back then there wasn’t all that much to do really looking back. I’ve been trying my hand at various activities, freighters, settlements and stuff.

I remembered it being a LOT easier to get credits from mining though lol. I recently had a streak of good luck though. I spent a few hours mining and managed to get about 8 million credits. Came across a system with an S Class Multi-tool Rifle and then I only had 3 million credits left 🤣.

I pulled in to the anomaly last night, left to go cook dinner, came back and saw that someone had given me stuff. After doing some research online I found out that the 5 “Stasis Device” they had given me were worth a fortune! Thanks random person! Yes I was still flying my Radiant Pillar since I hadnt changed ships yet.

A few hours later, I’m system hopping to look for a new ship and I’ll be blown away if an Exotic doesn’t land right in front of me. Wasn’t cheap but now I’ve got an S Class Multi-tool and Ship. Now the grind begins to upgrade everything. I’m going to be playing for a long while I think. See you out in the stars!

P.S How good does Light No Fire look? I’ll be jumping on that when it drops 😀
