:Fair warning there are spoilers here: So far I've only started on Akua but I did that to also test the tutorials of the game. It seems the tutorials flowed pretty well and the Tash story was enjoyable and I do hope in the final release we will be able to activate the portal once we collect all 16 logs. I didn't do any of the Talon side quests except for just 1 they still seemed a bit buggy. Features I liked: Having the frames for the base and HV, hopefully there will be SV and CV frames in the final build. Makes building in survival tolerable especially since you are only temporarily in the starter system. I like the emphasis on coring POIs and the benefits you get to Salvaging if it is owned by you no matter what tool you use. Never knew the yield was different with private core verses no/public core when salvaging. The new mobs that were added as well as the fact that one does help you a little. The mineral rock graphics. Also that Carbon is now a mineral instead of having to have stone and wood to make it. makes it much easier to bring a lower level bp that may use that a lot. The fact that if you look hard enough you can find many of the higher materials on the starter moons that may not be deposits . (Akua you can find Promethium, Titanium, Cobalt, and Pentaxid in rock form depending on where you go on it) Disappointments: NPCS are still the same as before with no variety, though it was stated that 1.8 would have them be better. Personal combat is still a bit clunky and really no variety in how the guns work. Reload time is same for whatever gun you use even though some should have faster or slower reload time. (Example Pistol should probably have a faster reload then a shotgun) That way you have options when fighting in personal combat that may fit the scenario. Currently Pistols have really no use in the game once you have other weapons so most players never use a them even the epic one. Bugs that need fix: The Raptor AI seemed broke and still is hoping it will be fixed in the final build Docking pad Collision box makes it impossible to carry an HV once you have a big enough vehicle to carry it, hopefully will be fixed in the final build.
