Last hard mode play through - around 80 days left with no significant damage to ship and one fatality.
No planet-side jobs taken (except for a couple at the beginning of the run to boost initial funds). No pirates or asteroid fields avoided.
I'd say harvesting oxygen to sell on at a profit was my core gameplay loop for that play through - it was the easiest way to prevail.
No obvious bugs found - though the some sounds did have pops and buzzes at the end of the audio asset which kinda added to the charm for me.
Thanks again - really enjoying it.
