Apple Watch Series 5 takes the world's best health and fitness tracker and motivator, connected communications and emergency contact band, and wearable computer platform, and brings it all back full circle — into just what might be the world's best watch.
To find out, I've been testing a space gray aluminum Apple Watch Series 5 running watchOS 6.0 for just about a week, both while traveling in Cupertino California and here at home in Montreal Canada.
I'm Rene Ritchie and this is the Apple Watch Series 5, with a little dash of watchOS 6 and Series 3, and a whole lot of Vector.
Now, that might not sound like much, but it's been one of the biggest knocks on this gizmo since launch. I've mentioned it in every review since and so has almost every reviewer else.
While it's tempting to exclamation point that with an "obviously" or "finally", when you look back at how battery and binary constrained the original Apple Watch was, it's not surprising it took a while.
There was a shortlist of major features that were missing and Apple has spent each year, every year since, knocking them off.
Series 2 brought the power needed to make apps native. Series 3 added cellular connectivity. Series 4 pushed the display out to the edges. And now, Series 5 lets that display stay on all the time.
It lets the watch, you know, be a watch.
If you already have a Series 4 you may not think that's worth upgrading to. For me, even if it was the only new feature — and it isn't — it totally would be. But I can certainly sympathize with that point of view.
Thing is, though. Most people in this world don't have a Series 4. Or any series.
Despite being the most popular watch and fitness tracker in the world, and product that's probably already bigger than the iPod at its height, the vast majority of people still don't have even one. Never mind Series 1.
And it's for them, the first-timers as much as the upgraders, that Apple has been knocking those items off the list.
So, that's how I'm going to approach this review. All the little details current Apple Watch owners demand, so they can figure out when and if they should upgrade, but also what's cool and compelling for those still sitting on the sidelines, watching, waiting, trying to decide when to take the plunge. And how.
Starting with the always-on display.
This Watch tells time
Apple Watch Series 5 From $399 at Apple
The Series 5 Apple Watch is more than just a watch, and for the first time in its existence, it actually acts like a watch.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: Always on display
In typical Apple fashion, they're not first to this. But they just might be best. There's no secondary display layer. No monochrome veneer. No special mode to turn on or turn off. No separate, kinda 1980s alarm-clock looking face to be stuck with. There's just the existing watch faces. All of them. All now available in always on.
Here's how it works. Previously, when you weren't using your Apple Watch, when you weren't interacting with it or tapping or turning it towards you so you could interact with it, it would go to sleep.
And it still does exactly the same thing now.
Only sleep no longer means the display turning off. Now it means the display staying on, but in ultra low power mode.
It's made possible by the low-temperature poly-silicon and oxide — or LPTO — display. It lets the Apple Watch dynamically adjust the refresh rate from the normal 60Hz all the way down to 1Hz.
It's connected to a new, low-power display driver and high efficiency, integrated power management circuit, all controlled by a new ambient light sensor.
That's on the hardware side. On the software side, the Apple Watch team has crafted low power versions of all the watch faces.
Low power, in that, more costly animations like second hands and digits, Mickey and Minnie footy taps, and the like either disappear or stop moving. Bright colors dim. Costly fills dim all the way down, adding faint outlines to stay legible. Photos fade, and animations like butterflies and Buzz Lightyear go away.
And that's it. That's how they stay until you wake them up again, just like the Apple Watch has always woken up.
Since the moment Apple announced this feature I've had a lot of people asking me if you could turn it off, some for power reasons, some for privacy.
So, yes, you absolutely can. Just go into settings, brightness and display, and kill it any and every time you want to.
But, here's the thing, you may just discover you don't want or ever really need to.
First, if you're thinking normal 18-ish hour battery life with always on display means even better battery life with always on off, you'd be technically correct but far, far overestimating the actual difference it makes.
Apple says it's not a significant amount, much less life changing, and in my limited tests it wasn't even so much that I remembered to mark it down. Of course, your needs and ability to notice might vary, just consider the utility.
If you turn the watch off completely, it'll stay charged for months, for all the good it will do you. Battery is there to be spent.
Second, if you're worried about privacy, Apple has built in a series of considerations for you to… well, consider.
If you're worried about someone seeing a potentially sensitive notification, don't be.
Notifications don't animate in in low power mode. All you get is the tap or the tone and, if you want to see the banner, you have to wake the watch first.
If you're worried about someone seeing sensitive health or personal information in a complication, don't be.
You can go into settings, display & brightness, and hide sensitive complications too. Then, instead of dimming in always on mode, they disappear completely.
If you're worried about low power, even dimmed, being annoying in a theater or bedroom or wherever, if the ambient light sensor detects a particularly dark room, it'll dim the watch even more. If that's still not enough, you can always open control center and flip on theater mode to temporarily turn off the display entirely.
If you think it might be confusing, that because you can see the screen, just dim, in always on mode, you'll try to tap controls while the watch is still asleep… well, you're right.
If you don't turn your wrist first to wake your watch, the first tap won't activate the control, it'll wake the watch. And, because it's dim and not black, your brain will act like one plus one suddenly equalled a cheese danish.
You just have to plough through the initial, awkward adjustment period and keep going.
And if, after hearing all that, you still want to turn off the always on, hit me up in the comments and let me know why. I'm genuinely curious.
Apple has also extended always on to the workout app and for all workouts. That way, if you're doing anything, stretching, swimming, whatever, you can see your stats without having to reach for your watch… even in the pool.
But, Apple hasn't extended always on to any other app. So, if you're in an app and you cover the display to put your watch to sleep, it'll just jump back to the watch face and go into always on mode from there.
And, when you wake it, you'll stay on the face.
If your watch goes to sleep on its own, it'll blur and dim out the app, just so no personal data leaks out, and transparently layer a simple, digital time stamp at the top right.
And, when you wake it, you'll still be on the app.
It's an incredibly considerate user experience that I'm still getting used to. Being able to just glance at the time without having to move my arm or risk offending anyone I'm with, is transformative.
But it's also a little showy offy.
Now, when I go out, especially if it's someplace formal or fancy, I put a lot more thought into my watch face because I know other people might see it. Likewise if I'm going somewhere fun.
Usually, during the week, infographic modular is my go to. It's basically the dashboard for my day. But now, if I'm meeting people for lunch, or I just want to give my god kids a laugh, I'll swipe over to the new Meridian or California-in-lieu of Hermes. Even Solar or Mickey.
Almost the way a traditional watch collector might mull their collection before choosing their look for the day.
That might well fade with the novelty, but I'm enjoying it while it lasts. So much.
I've wanted always-on since day one. In hindsight, I wouldn't have traded any of the other features Apple front loaded first, like cellular or the edge-to-edge display. But I'm incredibly glad always-on is here and I'm even happier with how it's finally arrived.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: Digital compass
Every year, when Apple introduces the new Apple Watch, they introduce the new S-series System-in-Package, or SiP along with it. That's basically the entire computer that runs the watch, all shrunk down and layered up together.
With Apple Watch Series 2, the S2 went dual-core. With Apple Watch Series 4, the S4 went 64-bit. With Apple Watch Series 5, the S5 is going… well, wherever the hell it wants, because now it's got a magnetometer — a digital compass and knows about direction.
Sorry, yeah. As silicon updates go, it's not just the breaking of Moore's law. It's the temporary cancellation of it.
But Series 5 isn't about performance. We've got that. And it's not about efficiency. The display system is handling that this year. It's just about maintaining everything else while always-on gets layer on top.
At least I hope that's what it's about.
With the A-Series system-on-a-chip, the one used in the iPhone and iPad, Apple has a lot of competition. Samsung, Huawei, Qualcomm, maybe even Intel if you want to look further out.
With watches, they really don't have any.
That's because it's incredibly expensive to make silicon for wearables. So expensive, Apple's one of the few companies that do it and the only company to my knowledge doing it well.
Other companies have reheated old phone chips, then reheated them again. But they simply don't have enough demand from enough customers to have enough budget to do much else right now.
And that's a shame, because completion is a benefit for everyone. It gives us more choice and it gives manufacturers more pressure.
Apple is usually really good about competing with themselves, so hopefully this is just a lull before the next leap. Because, even with always on, we're still not all the way through the list yet.
Not until Apple Watch is stand alone, can stay charged for a week, or both. No pressure.
There is a next-generation version of Apple's W3 chip inside, which handles all the radio communication for the Watch as efficiently and performantly as possible.
And the compass is cool. I was kind of blasé about it initially, because we've had one in the iPhone since the 3GS and I don't really think about it any more. But having it on the watch now has made me realize all the stuff it does and all the stuff the Watch hasn't been doing all this time without one.
Sure, there's a compass app, which is fun and probably beneficial for hikers and campers.
There's also an API, an application programming interface so developers can use it in their own apps. Some are just ok, like food apps pointing you at the restaurant you're reading about. Others are blow away, like astronomy apps highlighting the stars.
It also adds valuable metrics to to workouts, including incline, elevation, and latitude and longitude. And, when combined with GPS, the barometric altimeter, topographical map data, and Wi-Fi, if any, it can show your altitude for hiking, running, and biking workouts as well.
By far, though, my favorite use so far has just been direction in the Maps app. While I was doing the battery life testing for the iPhones 11, I got run down, and so went into Victor Rose coffee for some of the last cold brew of the season.
The line was long, so by the time I got out, my friends had moved on.
Thinking quickly, I told Siri to find Georgia and a few moments later, the map popped up and the directions appeared on my wrist.
I started walking only to realize almost immediately, thanks to the brand new compass on the Apple Watch, that I was going the wrong way.
So, I turned around, turned the corner, and there they were.
Some features are big and fill in huge, hulking gaps. That's always on display. Others are small and serve more to round things out. This is that.
A digital compass nice to have that turns out to be really nice to have.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: Emergency everywhere
When the Apple Watch got cellular networking, it came with a couple of huge caveats: because of its tiny, tiny size, it couldn't connect to enough radio bands to work in more than one place at a time. Apple had to basically make different models to support different parts of the world. And that meant no roaming.
Except, now, for Series 5, Apple has managed to squeeze in just enough bands, like one per region, to support very, very limited international calling.
International emergency calling, to be specific.
It works almost everywhere — over 150 countries, according to Apple, — even when your phone isn't nearby to piggy back off of.
It does require a cellular-capable Apple Watch, because it needs that modem. But, it works even if you've never activated the watch on a cellular plan and have no existing service.
It's just there. All the time. Ready and waiting to help if your Apple Watch detects a fall or you hit SOS. At home, or abroad.
And that opens up an entirely new roll for the device as an always available emergency beacon, everywhere.
I got a few family members the Series 4 last year just for the fall detection and SOS, so the rest of us wouldn't have to worry so much. Now, I kinda want to swap a couple of them out for the Series 5, the ones that live alone or travel a lot.
I've said it countless times already, but I consider Apple Watch the most important device Apple has ever made because it deliberately, intentionally, by design, saves lives.
International emergency calling is just one more in an increasingly long list of ways Apple is leading that charge.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: watchOS 6
I'm not going to spend too much time on watchOS 6 right now because, one, it's so good it really deserves its own review and two, it's coming to every Apple Watch with the exception of the original, so locking it up here with the new hardware really doesn't serve existing users.
So, more on the bits later. Let's talk about the atoms.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: Titanium & Ceramic
There are a few new finishes coming to Apple Watch Series 5. Not aluminum or Nike, alas. Those are pretty much the same silver and space gray for both, and annual shade of gold for the regular, non-Nike. The Nike gold would be pretty good. As would some iPhone 11 style Product Red.
Steel comes in the same polished and DLC-coated space black as it has since launch, though this year Hermes also offers the space black option. And it looks black fire.
White fire is the triumphantly returning Ceramic Edition, which debuted with Apple Watch Series 2 but vanished last year on the Series 4.
Brand new for Apple Watch Series 5 is the Titanium. Lighter and stronger than steel, it comes in a similar DLC-coated space Black, but also in a new brushed metal, with a special surface treatment created by Apple to be as fingerprint and stain resistant as the black.
It's branded as an Edition despite being only a hundred bucks more expensive than the steel because Edition is where Apple's materials team gets to come out and play.
It's watchy-watch stuff for watch-watch lovers, inside Apple and out. And it's just so exactly what makes Apple Apple and the Watch a watch.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: Bands & Studio
Apple releases new, seasonal bands for Apple Watch every spring, summer, and fall. In the beginning there were also new styles every year. Now, it's mostly about new colors and combinations.
Like I said in the hands-on, there's no ceramic or titanium bracelet, which is a drag. I'd love to see them.
But there are some cool two-tone sport loops, hot new Nike bands, and Hermes prints.
What's more interesting than the bands, though, is how you buy them.
It used to be in set pairs with the case. Now, with Apple Watch Studio, you can mix and match your own custom combos, both online and at Apple retail stores.
Hermes stays Hermes, obviously, but it looks like everything else is fair match game.
And I love it.
This Watch tells time
Apple Watch Series 5 From $399 at Apple
The Series 5 Apple Watch is more than just a watch, and for the first time in its existence, it actually acts like a watch.
Apple Watch Series 5 Review: Bottom LIne
4.5out of 5With the launch of Apple Watch Series 5, Apple may have cancelled the Series 4, but they've kept around the Series 3.
And, at $199, that's entry-level iPad great. As much as Apple is pushing the latest to new levels of greatness, they're now leaving really good, really useful versions of the same products at lower price points and making them accessible to even more people.
People who may not wanted to try it at full price or simply couldn't afford to. Again, as much as some with breathlessly bemoan the lack of reasons to update year-over-year, most people in the world still haven't bought a single Apple Watch.
The play here isn't upgrading, it's on-boarding, and Apple just gave a lot of people 199 reasons to think about the Watch for the first time. Especially as we enter the holidays.
For everyone else, they're giving Apple Watch Series 4: the world's best health and fitness tracker and motivator, connected communications and emergency contact band, and wearable computer platform that, yes, really does brings it all back full circle.
Apple Watch Series 5 is no the world's best watch. Period. * More Details Here
Hey y'all! I've been thinking about writing this for a long time, and university procrastination has given me the perfect opportunity. I know what you're thinking, "Exploration advice from an SDC member? Surely not!" However, I started in this game doing exploration, first in my Adder, then Diamondback, Asp, and finally a Conda. Been to the core twice, to the highest point above the galaxy, regularly go on medium-range trips out to various nebulae and prominent systems, and am currently en-route to Beagle point. Those who know me will know that I mostly do it for the sights and screenshot opportunities, and have had several shots of mine in the ED newsletter. So I figured I'd help out anyone who's new or curious about exploration. Here goes!
Exploration - what is it?
Pretty much what you'd expect - exploration involves venturing outside the bubble into the unknown for whatever purpose you have in mind, be it for the thrill, boredom, wanting to get your name on something, credits, or sightseeing.
The thing about exploration is that there's no linear progression or grind. You can take it at whatever pace you like. Ideally you should set yourself an end destination (nebula or interesting stacluster) and if it's a long distance (10,000ly+), set yourself waypoints to look forward to. Or you could just head out in a random direction and see where you eventually end up. As I've said before, your end goal could be reaching your destination, the credit payout, or the sick screenshots you get along the way.
Like any profession in the game, exploration is possible in any ship but ideal in only a few. This small list is further broken down based on whether you have horizons or not, but I'll explain more about that later. Here are the basics of any exploration loadout:
- Use the smallest class modules possible to save on mass. D-rated modules are the lightest in any class, and are good for this. The purpose of reducing your mass is to increase your jump range.
- Use the smallest A-rated powerplant possible. Yes, a D-rated powerplant will get you a slightly better jump range, but the A-rated plant is the most efficient in terms of heat management. This will save you a lot in the long run.
- Use a class 1D power distributor on every ship (even a Conda). Why? You spend 99% of your time in hyperspace and supercruise, where your distributor is irrelevant. Using the smallest one possible will give you a lot of extra jump range, and save some power on your ship for other things. The only downside is that you cannot boost with it in larger ships, which only affects you when you're landing on planets. The way to mitigate this is to be selective with the planets you land on (<2g is a good limit to set)
- Your largest internal slot should be a fuel scoop. If money is no object for you, use an A-rated fuel scoop. But if you'd like to save, use a B-rated one instead. The jump from a B to an A is roughly 20% extra scoop rate at 300% extra cost. This can save you a lot of money, especially on larger ships.
- Auto-field maintenance units. These are modules that you can use to repair other modules that have taken damage, including your canopy (but not your hull or your powerplant). Nobody ever intends to take damage while exploring but it happens to all of us, mostly when crashing into stars or black holes due to lapses in concentration. AFMU's also take damage as modules, so taking two units to repair each other is also a good idea (and they don't have mass). Be warned though, repairing a module will put it offline for the duration of the repairing process (don't repair your FSD or thrusters in supercruise!)
- Planetary vehicle hangar (horizons only) - used to store SRV's. The size of the hangar you take should be based off the length of your trip and likelihood of you losing SRV's (be realistic). You should mount a G-rated hangar, which has less mass than an H-rated one.
- Shield generator - y/n? If you own Horizons and intend to land on planets, you must have a shield generator. As it is currently, you cannot land an unshielded ship without it taking damage to its hull (well designed landing gear, right?) For the sake of planetary landings, you should mount the smallest D-rated shield generator possible on your ship in order to minimise the hit it takes on your jump range. Some of you may be thinking "What about shields to protect you when you're returning from your trip?" Valid question. The smallest D-rated shield will not protect you for long, but will mitigate enough damage from a small ship so that you can jump out, but larger ships will kill you easily. Luckily for you, Iridium Wing exists. They're a free service like the Fuel Rats, providing fighter escorts for explorers to and from habited space. You can request an escort heh by filling out this form.
- MUST include an advanced discovery scanner and a detailed surface scanner. I will explain what these do in detail later.
- Heat sink launchers - only to be used in emergencies. Best scenario is when you jump into a binary star system and are immediately trapped between two stars (everybody remembers their first time experiencing this). When this happens and you find yourself overheating before you can get your bearings, activate a heatsink in supercruise (have them bound to a hotkey, it's in the controls menu). This will purge all the heat from your ship for 10 seconds, which is usually enough time to escape from between two stars. Use them wisely though, since their ammunition is extremely low and unable to be crafted with synthesis.
- Extra fuel tanks? - No.
Ideally, your ship should have a jump range of at least 25 light years. Some areas of the galaxy have quite a sparse stellar density, so your jump range can mean the difference between reaching that pretty O-class or not. It should have enough internal compartments to include the modules that are vital to your trip (AFMU's, scanners, and a vehicle hangar + shields for those that own Horizons.)
When it comes to purchasing and outfitting your ship, buy it and its modules at a Li Yong Rui system (Lembava, Diaguandri, LHS 20, 6 Andromedae). You'll get 15% off both the ship and all its modules which will bring your total cost down by a significant amount.
Here are a few long-range exploration ship builds for various prices (15% discount factored in). Some have the B-rated fuel scoops mounted to save on credits where it almost halves the build's cost, but you can mount the A-rated scoop if you have the credits:
- Hauler - 2,776,372 CR, 25.81ly. Excellent starting ship for exploration, since it features quite a nice jump range for the price. However, it lacks the internal slots to be viable for Horizons users.
- Adder - 3,504,015 CR, 26.06ly. A good upgrade over the Hauler, featuring two AFMU's which makes it a good choice for extremely long range trips. These can also be swapped out for a shield and single vehicle hangar, making it a great short range vessel for Horizons users (or long range if you're willing to risk module damage due to crashes)
- Cobra Mk III - 5,282,493 CR, 25.21ly. A classic ship, and a good all-rounder. Features a single vehicle hangar, shield generator, and single AFMU, making it an excellent choice for anyone who wants to be able to go anywhere and do anything. It also happens to be highly photogenic, especially with its beautiful thruster trails.
- Type-6 Transporter - 9,616,560 CR, 28.02ly. One of the best early exploration ships, and is often overlooked since many see it as "one of those trader ships". This build boasts a great jumprange, dual vehicle hangar, shield generator, and twin AFMU's, making it the first true long range Horizons exploration ship. On top of that, it has a great canopy with excellent visibility.
- Diamondback Explorer - 12,063,710 CR, 33.68ly. Features an incredible jump range for its price, but suffers from the same internal issues as the Adder. Can mount two AFMU's for long range non-Horizons trips, or a shield and dual vehicle hangar for Horizons users who want to risk module damage. Also comes in a standard bright yellow colour, which can begin to look cheap and tacky when taking screenshots. A white or black skin is highly recommended for this ship, making it one of the sexiest looking explorers.
- Asp Explorer - 22,118,751 CR, 33.36ly. The exploration ship everybody seems to settle with, and with good reason. Decent price, excellent jumprange, dual vehicle hangar, shield generator, dual AFMU's. Almost identical to the Type-6 build but with 5.34 extra jump range. It even shares the same amazing canopy.
- Anaconda - 166,471,217 CR, 38.01ly. The endgame exploration ship. Magnificent jump range, quadruple vehicle hangar, shield generator, dual AFMU's, and four empty internal slots (enough for 112t of cargo, or 4 extra AFMU's, or a fuel transfer limpet controller for deep space rescue missions). If you don't have any use for these slots, fill them with cheap AMFU's. That way, more module damage due to heat or supercruise crashing is spread across the AMFU's and therefore less on the powerplant, which cannot be repaired. The only downside is that the cockpit is set at the back of the ship, limiting your forward view to the positive x-axis only. The ship itself can look kinda sexy at the right angles
What to do
Now that you have your ship, you're probably itching to get out there and explore. The first thing you should do is to choose a destination. If you're using any of the builds I've listed above, you'll be capable of flying anywhere in the galaxy. Yes, even the core region and beyond! Your destination could be a nebula, a particular star or system that you know of, or just an area of the galaxy that you want to travel to. Once you have decided on your location, hover over it in the galaxy map and note its distance from you in Ly (light years). The route planner can only plot routes up to 1000ly at a time, so if your destination is over 1000ly away, you'll need to find a system around 1000ly away from you in the general direction of your destination and plot a route to it. Once you have plotted your route, begin the first jump!
When you jump into an unexplored system (nothing showing on your sensors when you first jump in), throttle down to 30km/s in supercruise and charge up your advanced discovery scanner. This is done by binding it to a firegroup and then using it (works in supercruise and sublight). It will detect all astronomical bodies in that system, making them available for you to target from your navigational panel and view from the system map. You get exploration data to sell for every body you discover this way.
Once you've fired your scanner, target the star in front of you and point your ship at its centre. This should begin a detailed surface scan. A detailed surface scan is done by targeting an unexplored body and pointing the ship at it while in range until the scan is complete. You can tell if you're scanning an object by the spinning "loading" sprite in the bottom left panel, and by the scanning sound. Once complete, it will notify you and the body will now have a name beside it. Additional info on that body will also be available for you to view in the system map (gravity, composition, planet type). When an object is surface scanned, the data value you got from discovery scanning it is trebled.
When you're in the middle of scanning the main star, open your system map and take a look at all the bodies. The planets that pay out the most for detailed surface scans are earth-like worlds, water worlds, and ammonia worlds. If you are unsure about a planet's type, move your marker over it and zoom all the way in. If you listen carefully for around 20 seconds, you'll be able to hear its "cartographic music". Water worlds produce a deep ocean bubbling sound, earth-like worlds have singing birds, ice worlds have a harsh wind sound, etc. Recognition of these comes with practice. Decide what you want to scan and keep note of it.
Before you go out to scan bodies in the system or jump to the next one, scoop fuel off the main star if possible. The best way to do this is to travel parallel to the surface of the star in an orbit, which lets you fine-tune your distance from it. If your heat gets too high, back off and approach it again once you've cooled down.
Things to keep in mind
- When in hyperspace on the way to a system, set your throttle to zero. That way you'll be traveling at 30km/s as soon as you drop into the next system, letting you fire your discovery scanner and surface scan the main star straight away. Binding "zero throttle" to a hotkey also helps with this, and pressing it during a hyperspace jump is a very good habit to get into. It will save you from crashing into neutron stars and black holes.
- Sort your galaxy map by "star type". Deselect the L, T, Y, and Proto stars from the list. Those star types are unscoopable. To remember the scoopable stars, remember this sentence:
Oh, Be A Fine Girl, Kiss Me (O, B, A, F, G, K, M)
It also conveniently puts them in order from rarest to most common, hottest to coolest, and largest to smallest. Ergo, M-classes are the most common, coolest, and smallest of the main sequence stars. So if you find an O-class star on the map, it's probably worth visiting!
- Keep an eye on your fuel bar. If you come across two or three unscoopable stars in a row, open up your galaxy map and plot a direct route to the nearest scoopable star. Trust me when I say that running out of fuel is no fun at all. If you ever do run out of fuel, contact the Fuel Rats. They'll come out to wherever you are and give you enough fuel to continue exploring, no matter where you are in the galaxy! They're the real MVP's.
- Don't land on planets with more than 1.5g - 2.0g when you're out on a long trip. The risk isn't worth it. The fact that you have no power distributor means that you cannot boost, which you sometimes need to do in order to slow yourself down on approach.
- Switch your cargo hatch, AFMU's, and power distributor off to save power, lower heat, and save fuel.
- In the event that you crash into a star or enter orbital cruise at ludicrous speeds, your internal modules will all take small amounts of damage (1-2%). When that happens, get to a safe space away from the main star (landing on a planet works, as well as stopping in sublight), switch off all non-essential modules (basically everything except life support) and switch one of your AFMU's online. Next, select any damaged modules you'd like to repair and there should be a "repair" option under the "activate" option. The canopy should be your main priority, then FSD and everything else. Don't repair your life support until it's down to about 60%, since you don't want to waste oxygen constantly doing small repairs on it.
Things to look for
If you want to find interesting things in the galaxy, there are several ways to proceed.
- Visit HIP 63835 (everyone has to go here once!).
- Go hunting for the exquisite and rare planetary nebulae
