Yesterday while playing No Man's Sky, I found an oceanic planet that contained a multitude of Sac Venom. Whenever I scanned for resources nearby, these popped up everywhere as far as my scanners would go.
A Sac Venom's average value on the market goes for ~26k per item, so it was only natural to stock up on as many as I can. Afterwards, I was carrying about 500K worth of inventory and I made my way to my ship to travel to the closest space station.
Moments after I left orbit, my scanners picked up hostiles nearby and turned off my pulse engines. Typically I would shoot them down and continue, but about 12 ships warped into my area and took me out like I was nothing.
When carrying an abundance of valuable resource, do you have greater odds of being attacked or was this merely bad luck?
