Community Event #27 : A Pearl of a Weekend Quicksilver Quest
No Man’s Sky Community Event #27 took place this past weekend on a lush world with skies and grass of blue. The event was centered at the site of a crashed starship. Upon arrival, players found the wrecked hull of the downed ship aglitter with a strange static energy. The sickly smell of scorched hair and flesh emanated through the waves of static. A demand was heard — and a threat. The hunt for Albumen Pearls commenced.
I participated in the event in the early afternoon of Sunday the 3rd and saw much activity on the ground and in the skies as other interlopers labored to quell the demands of the static anomaly. As well, a more than usual number of player bases had been constructed across the surface of the event planet, and other planets in the system. Some of those I visited were quite impressive in their design and construction. And some were well-stocked with a certain, particular type of flora that made things a little easier for those accepting the assistance… (And this weekend, that was me.)
The accompanying video shows some of the highlights of the weekend event, as I experienced it.
It’s great to rake in that Quicksilver, as a player who recently resurrected a two-year-running Eissentam galaxy save file that sat dormant since NEXT landed in 2018, and is trying to secure all the base adornments. But, the real fun of these events, for me, is seeing other players doing their thing, along with the wild bases they inevitably create within the event system.
One thought on “Community Event #27 : A Pearl of a Weekend Quicksilver Quest”
I heard about the pearls and spent 10 minutes harvesting 30 on a world near me where you can barely move for them, then when I rocked up there I saw a guy had built a base near the portal with 24 growing in bio-domes ready for folks to take, props to that guy. Seeing as it took me all of 4 seconds to complete the mission I spent 15 minutes doing maneuvers with other people’s ships, as I play in VR you can be much more accurate with them because you don’t have to flip the controls in your mind; my personal favourite is giving them the Top Gun ‘watch the birdie’.
