    This is actually much much easier than it sounds as this method still works on Xbox One just as it did on PS4 at launch. The easiest way to get this achievement is to play on Permadeath or Survival as this will increase the chances of encountering an Extreme Survival planet (my 2nd planet in my starting system was an Extreme Survival planet). The best planet to use for this is the ones with Extreme Sentinels, on these planets Sentinels will attack you on sight. After landing and exiting your ship, in the analysis of the planet in the bottom left hand corner it should be bolded in red, this will indicate it's the correct planet. Now for Sentinels it will label them as HOSTILE and this is the best case. Simply enter a building or build a makeshift base and just wait. Make sure to move your character every so often so your Xbox's idle mode doesn't kick in because that will pause the game. Each planet's Sol is different, some are longer some are shorter but so long as you just wait it out eventually you'll reach rank 10 in Extreme Survival and you'll earn The Sentinel Achievement and Stranger In A Strange Land Achievement

    you need to reach 32 Sols on Extreme Planets, but as stated above each planet's Sol is different

    Crims0nScorpionI know originally when it first released on PS4 it HAD to be done in one shot as the tracking for that was slightly bugged, if you left and went to another planet it would reset the counter, however I do believe that was patched and fixed well before the Xbox version came out but depending on the difficulty you’re playing on I would just get it done in one shot before leaving the planet

    thomaskoratDid this in two sessions, inside an observatory. Built a portable save station outside and saved & exited between idlings. Don't touch your ship.
    Note: 5 sols survival-idling is needed for the Priest/Gekdude ship questline.

    This is the last part in Extreme Survive Milestone. You are required to complete 32 SOLS. This is basically 32 day cycles on a extreme planet. I did my on a Acidic planet. Make sure the planet you choose has extreme weather. Find a safe space like a Trading Post or any other building on the planet or claim a your own base, build a quick building and wait out 32 planet cycles. Depending on the planet 1 day can be 15 min or 30 min, so be ready to do something else while you wait. Remember to move your joystick on the controller once in a while to keep it from going idle. Once it goes idle the game pauses and no progress would be made until you unpause the game.

    This would be a perfect time to pickup a book to read or write one while you wait. Have fun and good luck!!

    IronFistofSnuffYou can also rubber band your joystick and leave it on overnight. When I woke up I had 36.5 Sol survived. Also, it's really easy to find extreme planets in red star systems. It does require a cadmium drive to get to them though.
