Attain maximum status regarding the Extreme Survival Milestone and easily progress through Polo's Survival Missions.
Finding the Right Place
In order to progress through the Extreme Survival Milestone and Polo's Missions in relationship to this, you need to find an "Extreme Environment Planet". This means you have 2 possibilities: find a high security planet with aggressive sentinels that attack on site OR find a planet with extreme weather (extreme temperatures, extreme radiation or toxic environments).
Here is an example of a planet with extreme toxic environment and corrosive rainstorms. Notice the "Extreme" label above the hazard protection info in the lower left screen; this label will tell you that you are in the right spot.
Here are the coordinates for the planet:
And info regarding the planet and system:
Coordinates for copy-pasting and transforming into glyphs:
- Coordinates converted into glyphs.
Find a Portal, enter the glyphs and go to the above mentioned extreme planet.
Now that you are in the right place, you must survive in this extreme environment. Don't worry, you don't need to run around like crazy on an extreme sentinel planet or keep recharging your shield with batteries in extreme weather in order to obtain the milestone.
In order to obtain the maximum status of "Everlasting", you need to have survived for 8 hours in an extreme environment (1 Sol = 15min).
The timer will stop if you leave the planet, go inside your spaceship, minimize the game or if the game window is not the active one when running the game in windowed mode (the game will simply pause in the last 2 cases).
What you have to do is go inside a cave, make a small cave using your terrain manipulator and go inside or go inside a building (use your signal booster to scan for buildings or build one yourself). This will shield you from the extreme environment, but the timer will go on. If you stand still, life support is not drained.
I chose the fastest method of simply digging a small hole in a hillside with the terrain manipulator.
Go inside until there is no more extreme weather, stand still so that the life support is not drained and leave the game running. You can also place a beacon or save point in front of you, so that you can save fast from time to time and don't loose and progression due to crashes/power outages or other circumstances.
