The Living Ships update for NMS introduces some awesome new ships but they are not easy to get. In this guide on How To Get More Quicksilver Missions In No Man’s Sky we breakdown the frustrating aspects of the daily quest system that locks the Living Ships content out of reach.
The first stage to getting a Living Ship in NMS is a frustrating one. You need to obtain 3,200 Quicksilver. It is a unique currency, one that cannot be found in the wild. You cannot mine for it, shoot asteroids, trade with merchants, there is only one single location that rewards you with Quicksilver.
How To Get Quicksilver In No Man’s SkyIf you want to learn how to get Quicksilver in NMS you must summon the Space Anomaly in space and board, then speak with the Nexus. This is where the frustration sets in.
You cannot Get More Quicksilver Missions In No Man’s Sky manually. Once you complete a Quicksilver mission, the mission is gone. There will not be another Quicksilver mission until the server day passes and moves on to the next day. Currently the average Quicksilver reward per normal daily mission is 250, meaning you will need to play for nearly 13 days, doing a daily mission each day to get the 3,200 Quicksilver needed.
There is a small light at the end of this dark tunnel however. Weekend and sometimes community events offer greater levels of rewards but unfortunately, that’s still at least 6 days assuming you do a weekend event each day for two weekends.
Sean Murray said in an interview that they are looking at delivering contents of different types, some of which are not immediately accessible, rewarding players for prolonged and continued play, so I would not expect any change to the daily limit of Quicksilver missions for the foreseeable future.
