Over the past 3 weeks after getting back into NMS after a 2 year hiatus, I started searching the forums and interwebs for how a lot of information. Info on the new game with all its updates, Freighters, Exo-Craft, mechanics and upgrades too. One topic I found most funny was how to make money quickly - some say just edit a couple of files and give it to yourself, while other say play the game. I'm the Play The Game guy and I truly discovered how to make millions extremely quickly.
Let me get to the point... all the info you read about killing monsters for their eggs, mining a specific mineral, or attacking cargo ships is all BS. That's not the way to earn Millions Quickly.

Here is is... the answer to all of your money woes - Ancient Bones.

Storm crystals are even faster, in my experience. I farmed them for about an hour and ended up with just over 30 million.

Never came across them before. What planet environment will you find them in?

Needs to be an extreme environment planet. They only appear during storms.

Absolutely, I totally agree. It's even faster than frigate mission revenues, and it's also a good way to advance your Extreme Survival Milestone. If only I had already Exocrafts to move even faster :)

The only play that gets money faster is high-item farming, there are items woth 15 millions. If you have a big farm you are ready to make industrial production, but it's a feature you will use when you have unlocked almost everything in the game, not an early feature like Glowing Crystals.

Chances are all good sources might be not good after a new big patch. The above mentioned eggs where indeed a very good source of income. With Next (or shortly after) the value got massively nerfed.

IMO they overdid it with the price nerf; since while I previously usually spend the time gathering them (mostly) when encountering an abandoned base they are now not worth stopping by; much less looking out for.

Agreed. Although, even after NEXT, I actually found the eggs were worth it on airless planets, as you could mine them easily without triggering the swarm. But when they changed the mechanics of that so that the swarm appears even on the airless planets, it's just not worth the hassle. I fear they'll nerf the storm crystals and ancient bones though, as it's so easy to make tens of millions in a short time.
