So after learning the basics, i'm floating around and naming stars and planets when i get the great idea to go check out one of these pulsars. As i look at it, i decide to check if there are any planets...long story short...there is absolutely no light on this planet besides a very faint sun and i can't find my pod

anyone have any advice?

You can close the game and go into the data folder and delete the surface.bin and that will return you to your stardrifter. The only other option is to stumble around randomly until you find the capsule.

Well i decided to name the star Minotaur and the planet Theseus...

If it was a thin atmo world... well, dont land on thin atmo worlds, they're unreasonably dark.

If you want to find the landing capsule on your own, just look at the landing coordinates to the left of your compass. All you have to do is wander around until the last two numbers are both zero, and then you should be within a few meters of it.

Lies!
They're not unreasonably dark!

IMO, realistically, thin atmo worlds should be, in clear sky conditions, almost as bright as no-atmo worlds.

Is version 5 going to have some sort of night vision to correct this? Or some sort of hud display to help out?

That was not fun.
the bestest ever

Frankly, NV will look much nicer, so it should be easier to see what you're doing in the dark heh. Maybe he should put in a flashlight... Let's not talk of NV though
going nowhere fast...

A flashlight was the first thing I suggested to Alex for (that which must not be mentioned). He agreed that it was in.

I once to went to a very dark place. It was pitch-black and when I took a step back, I fell into a extremly deep hole. Wasn't a nice situation.

Extremely deep? Was this an icy planet? Because often on the nightside of these planets you'll find erratic canyons and mountains covering the entire sector, I'm not sure if these exist in the original NIV but it'd probably be REALLY hard to get out of in the original NIV, especially if it's dark. You finally get out of the horrible canyon and then you blindly stumble around in the direction of your lander, only to fall in another canyon, that wouldn't be good

Anyways, if you don't already have it I reccomend you download NICE (N Iv CE), a fanmade version of NIV. Noone ever figured out what CE stands for, I think it sounds best as Community Edition. In NICE you not only have a jetpack and can bring the lander to you, you also have different vision modes which will help you see in the dark on most planets, and you'll also be able to increase the brightness of the game.

Am I the only one who has seen these canyons? I have a slight suspicion they're a bug.
