There is an "Extreme Survival" tracker which shows how long you have spent in survival conditions. Is this time cumulative or do you have to get it all at once? I noticed mine has been stuck at 0.5 sols for a while, even though I've spent time in extreme weather since then, though not usually for very long. I'm not sure how long a "sol" is, so maybe it just wasn't enough time to tick it up, or maybe it was because I didn't spend longer than 0.5 sols straight in extreme weather. If it is cumulative, does this mean you cannot even enter a building or get in your ship? What if the conditions are only intermittently extreme?


This has been fixed as of version 1.07. Progress towards the Extreme Survival milestone is now cumulative.

From the patch notes:

Some players were unable to achieve the extreme survival journey milestone, this has been resolved.

This post clarifies what that means:

The issue where the counter would reset when leaving the planet's atmosphere was fixed.

If your save is from a previous version of the game, however, then your counter will already be 0, and you'll need to build back up to your previous total before you'll see progress in the milestone menu (since it's now incremental, you can do this over time by visiting a number of extreme planets).

  • Cool! I'm about halfway through this, and it was getting mighty tedious. – Kat Sep 15 '16 at 15:50

Once you leave the planet, the timer resets.

You can stay inside a shelter and the counter will continue to increase. But I believe you have to be on an extreme planet, not stay out in extreme weather. The easiest (though most tedious) way to get these milestones is to just hang out in a shelter doing nothing.

A sol seems to be about 15 minutes.

  • Can you clarify a bit on "leave the planet"? Can you fly your ship without losing the timer? Is it leaving the atmosphere that does it (e.g. the point at which your ship's scanner switches from planetary scan to star system scan)? – Dan Henderson Aug 23 '16 at 18:57

    I was able to get in my ship and fly to another location on planet without the timer reseting. However, I only tried it once as there's a random bug that launches you into orbit when you leave the ground. Going into orbit definitely resets the timer. – Steven Burnap Aug 23 '16 at 19:38
