“I really just want my ship back. I’m not trying to scam anyone,” says Avaslash in the post. “I have no problem paying out the nose for it. I don’t expect anyone to actively hunt for it. Just if you happen to see it while exploring, I’m hoping you’ll remember me and contact me.”
The Next update for No Man’s Sky added multiplayer for the first time since launch, making a coordinated system wide search like this possible. Unfortunately, the update also changed many player’s game state, altering the planets they were on and, as in Avaslash’s case, updating their ships.
So, if you’re interested in getting space rich to take full advantage of all the new content the Next update as added you might want to keep your eyes peeled.
