Note: I have uninstalled NMS after sharing this checkpoint for the past 4 or so months. Check in with the awesome people in the comments thread to see if they are in a position to share it with you. Cheers.

Hey team. Carvain's solution is legit, its a hard slog and ill give him and anyone else props for getting there on their own on their own merit.

But there is another way. Its a bit cheese, but it is also a much easier way to earn this and the "Take a Deep Breath" achievement.

In short, you can join another persons game who is one jump away from the centre and on permadeath mode, and then make your own way there.

I was lucky enough to find someone willing to share their session with me so its only right I do the same (big props to Instant DnB for the initial share).

I would suggest starting your own permadeath game first and getting yourself through the story missions up until you create your own warp fuel. I made the error of joining the shared game from scratch and had to slog my way through the story missions on a very unforgiving world. But it can be done, it will just will take time and the risk of permadeath is always there.

You will find yourself one jump from the centre, and to reach it you will need a full warp drive of fuel (5 warp fuels).

If you are interested in going this way, add / message me on XBL and when I am online I can invite you to my game. Once you are there I can wait in game until you get a checkpoint save (if starting from scratch, once you get your space ship). Once you have a checkpoint the game state will be yours and you can progress to the centre.

A thought. If you have a checkpoint you are willing share, comment below so others can join your game, get the achievement and share their checkpoint also.


Edit: It would seem in some cases the checkpoint is not always saved, so to ensure that you keep the checkpoint once you load into the game go to settings and turn network play off, this should put you into your own instance. Now you can land your ship and exit which should save the checkpoint for later reloads.

Thanks to iDeFuze for posting this originally and KawiNinjaRider7 & xI BLAM Ix for testing.
