first, I'd like to say "thanks" to each person who has worked (and/or is still working) on Noctis: Alex, Neuzd, Skinnymoon, Cryoburner, ... and all the others I don't know yet.
I'm French and playing Noctis IV since 2005. I've found it on a CD compilation of PC Games. I've only played it 40-60 hours, I think (some years, I didn't played it at all) but I still LOVE it, even if it's "old".
Now, some friends helped me to discover "electro music" and it fits with space exploration.
As long as I will find a way, I'll keep playing.
So, I'd like to list here all the active players (if they exist) to keep this game "alive", make FANARTS, play and discover "new" things ... and (why not ?) make an encyclopedia about EVERYTHING in Felysion (compiling data from this forum).
Where are you, Felysian Stardrifters ? ^^

|We are here, even if sometimes more in spirit than anything.|
Me for example also in total played about only 100 hours over many years.
But I hang around
|Well, it's really become harder to play Noctis on newer computers, so it is not as "popular" as it once was. |
I have a (by the "standards") an old computer, so I still practice explore every couple of weeks, more or less.
But then, I've always been an exception, rather than a rule...
|I still play every so often. No other game has really caught the same dream-like spirit of exploration for me. I just never really post here any more...|

|I do miss "Noctis" but my current PC just won't run it and I'm not computer literate enough to go through the rigmarole it takes to make it work. I content myself with fond memories and the latest version of "Spacengine" Even though it tends to make my PC overheat.|
|I never play Noctis anymore, but it still pops into my head once in a while. It's just such an ambitious piece of software that accomplishes what it tries to do very well. Very sad that it is 2015 and we still don't have a sequel to this masterpiece - nothing has come since that has the same dream-like quality and scope.|
|Of course, since I will not be able to use No Man's Sky or even Space Engine [ "graphics card"??? what's THAT?] for that matter, in the foreseeable future, I will just have to content myself by cruising around in my stardrifter and exploring new worlds...|

|I have my DOSBox thing ready to explore every now and then and I lurk here once in a blue moon (avg 1 post every two years :v)|
nothing quite like Noctis, that's for sure

|Hi Stardrifters, it seems that Noctis IV is the last one ! =D|
If I had the skills, I'd like to create a game like this.
My PC's wallpaper are Noctis fanarts from Farvus, Cryoburner, Kynreeve and so on. There are so great ...
"Space Engine" doesn't work on my PC and I don't have a PS4 to play "No Man's Sky". They look cool ... but I need more POWER !

|No Man's Sky isn't that good, sadly.|
Seemly they updated it recently, but mostly to add base building, instead of fixing the obvious problems.
I just can't wrap my head around how someone can make a new game using the lastest tech and end worse than a DOS game made by one guy (granted, a genius guy... but only one guy).
|I think at least some of NMS's problems was its cost. It's probably a pretty decent $20 game, but most people don't feel it was worth $60 at all.|

|Dunno, I played it for free and got so pissed off I wasted my time playing it, that it felt like I should have been paid to play it.|
To me is like the game had negative value.
|i do my own stun-- avatars|
|I love No Man's Sky. So, rather than say it's not good, I reckon it's more accurate to say a lot of people didn't like it (for valid reasons). |
