Actually, Sentinel aggression is pretty variable from planet to planet. The ones with rare resources like Gravitino Balls or Vortex Cubes tend to have more aggressive sentinels, though, and I've come across some places where they actually shot you on sight. Then again, I've also had places where they just floated by lethargically without bothering you, no matter how much you stripmined the place.Cornflakes_91 wrote:you can mine without being attacked, though.Talvieno wrote: - Sentinels do not attack you in the game unless you start mining. (Mining is necessary to do anything at all in the game, so it's impossible to play without getting attacked.)
when you destroy something sentinel drones come to investigate and when you do something stupid while they watch /then/ you get attacked.
at least for mining its pretty avoidable
If you manage to get the agression level to 4 and then destroy the large walker, no further sentinels will spawn, allowing you to do your stuff in peace (until you hit orbit, that is, since that level will spawn sentinel interceptors once you leave).
