Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.
Let's Talk: No Man's Sky
The things can't climb, so you can jet pack onto the building (if there is one) and wait out the swarm. Repeat until full.
I wish that there was persistent mapping of buildings and trade stations on planet that you have explored.
I am on a lush moon and ran into subterranean mushroom creatures hopping about. I followed one and the asshole led me right into a toxic fungus.

Oh man, THIS. I think it's intentional, but this game is dead set on not letting your return to things you see randomly once but don't have time or energy to get to. I get it, the game's procedural so it wants you to just go see the next thing, but for a mind like mine it's hard.
I did find that if I followed the ships flying around the sky on these planets, they generally led to trade outposts.
Playing TSR's Pool of Radiance with graph paper was probably too extreme, but there's a nice middle ground here somewhere. Having the map out beside my computer playing Sid Meier's Pirates in my teenage years was perhaps the absolute immersive height of my gaming experience in life so far.
I imagine it's hard to do this with a Z-axis but maybe it will enhance the No Man's Sky experience doing it ourselves.
edit: especially because the tutorial is having you build a base and get rooted in one place, which is at odds (I think) with what you're supposed to be up to later.

When you activate the scanner, there are X and Y coordinates displayed. I just noticed this last night and haven't tested to see if they're "real" or just flavor. It's over on the right side of the screen.
