I’d like to share some ideas for making our unofficial NMS civilization become an official hub in the NMSverse.
Due to the popular vote, our civilization is Observers of the Galaxy. As we are an unofficial and unsupported group of OTG guild members, we can’t use the OTG name/brand. This means we cannot refer to ourselves as OTG in-game. I propose our acronym be OGs. We are Older Gamers and some of us are Original Gamers, hearkening back to Ataris, Commodore 64s, MUDs, and beyond.
As members of the civilization, we can call ourselves The Observers. As individuals, it would be something like Observer [NAME], e.g., Observer S. Taboo. The OGs could work as well; OG Shrewd in da house!
As The Observers, we can name planets, fauna, flora, and minerals after observing their qualities or not name them in regard/respect for whatever the thing calls itself. This gives each of us the freedom to name or not name things. Ideally, names given support your observations and you can use any language you want (translations in wiktionary is a fun resource ).
We WILL name our capital system in each galaxy using a simple naming convention: Observers of Euclid, Observers of Hilbert, Observers of Calypso, etc.
Observers of the Galaxy (OGs) Hub Entry
Values for our civilization per NMS Hub - No Man's Sky Wiki.
Capital System: TBD
Capital Planet: TBD
Type: Casual, Discovery, Exploration
Founded by: The OGs
Federation Member: TBD
Do we want to come up with a formal mission? Those hub pages on the wiki have a lot of content!
I figure we all play NMS in a chill and relaxing way. No need to create spreadsheets documenting our observations, right? Setting up a system in every single galaxy could be cool but that’s a personal goal and I’m in no rush. What do you guys think?
- I will continue to figure out how to officialize our OG hub; determine those TBDs.
- Vote for a new system. Glufjogu served as a trial run and I certainly learned from it! We’ll keep Glufjogu—now called Observers of the Galaxyy—to play around in.
- Please share your feedback and thoughts about a mission in the comments!
Thank you so much, everyone! Your participation and support mean a lot.
