The No Man's Sky Thread

I wasn't aware of that, is this a platform specific problem or all around?
I'm playing on Xbox One X.
Every platform... core code issue.. but solution allready found, its just people need to read it, so if they suffer and don't ask they don't know the solution...
see ya later Im of to spend 1hr getting more platinum from space ships and terminals to convert as well as doing missions to get even more Nanite Clusters to buy unlocks for the mechs..
These were re-added in the very last patch after the mech patch that mistakenly did not have them enabled ..

You're definitely right about that, discord has been a great help with a couple things I didn't get.
If I would've encountered this bug I'd probably got an answer there.
It's a quite friendly community too and very positive about the game.
 
NO MAN SKY AS ALTERNATIVE TO MINECRAFT

I installed Minecraft on PS4 for my wife recently. We used to play alot years ago, and enjoyed it. I forgot how relaxing and fun this can be. NMS is also a PS4 game I own and played years ago. I kinda thought of it as a potential Minecraft replacement, but it lacked some things (the need to jump through hoops to unlock blueprints was my biggest complaint).

I'm curious, a couple years later, might NMS be a good alternative to Minecraft? In other words, skip all the space stuff and just settle on a planet and mine and build and play it like minecraft. Thoughts?

Creative mode will still be for you,, Money is disabled and every thing cost nothing in credits, You can build what you like virtually every thing is unlocked... no resources are needed... unless you want to go get them...

All other modes still have the unlock requirements and the credits grind...
Unlocking stuff still requires ship use in those other modes...

No, creative mode bores me to pieces. I like gathering resources, and I don't mind buying blueprints, but I hate the whole "drive your SRV to point A and back in 10 seconds in order to unlock the next base component" aspect of the game. I sent a formal request to HG to give us an "Engineers" game mode, where all blueprints are unlocked so that we can build anything for which we have the materials for. No reply.

Speaking of, NMS has mods on PC, right? Perhaps there is a mod to unlock blueprints but leave the requirement for materials in place in survival mode. Anybody know of such a thing?

Then no it won't replace minecraft as you have to do all the unlocking in other modes still on console... its easier if you did them after each update..
Yes PC has Save file editing mods so you can Hack every thing to be unlocked (don't use them on console) From just giving them selves unlimited Nanite Clusters to unlocking items in there save file after every new update. to boosting back pack and ships size...

I don't know of a mod (which is not to say there isn't one) but it sounds to me like the NMS Save Editor is what you're looking for.

You can create a new save in any mode you like, then edit it to give you all the headstarts you need in terms of resources, blueprints, money etc, and use that as a base for your "Engineer's Mode".

Just a suggestion.

Okay, I will consider this. I don't yet own NMS on PC, and having paid only $16 for it on PS4, I'm not yet ready to pull the trigger, even for $30 sale. Even with VR, the "default" NMS isn't my thing, but if I can modify slightly, perhaps.

Speaking of mods, are there any "black space" mods out there? How about a mod that greatly reduces all these "asteroids" ALL OVER THE PLACE? If I can mod NMS to be a slightly more realistic experience, that would peak my interest.

Aye, you can change all of that stuff and more. There's quite a few space mods, and at least one that lets you customise how often you have asteroids.

Mods make the PC version infinitely better as a gaming experience than PS4 IMO. I still fire up the PS4 version from time to time, but the lack of mods really does hurt even though the base game is the same.
 
Quite a nice, affectionate and interesting read - "we are working up some more ambitious additions to the universe, and have so much more planned for 2020 for us to feel excited about."

They're building up the hype, but in contrast to some other dev we know Hello Games actually delivers great and engaging but most of all fun content.
I'm realy excited to find out what they'll come up with next.

One thing's for sure - even though it's a shared universe and player owned content is persistent - there'll be no anti-player "upkeep" or "decommissioning" to worry about.
 
Well, those of us who bought NMS don't have to wait a year for Odyssey. :)
Yup.

The "taster" video of Odyssey was like... ok... just bare desert with a blue sky, and some bases taken from the 3D assets in the main game. I mean... it's not that very impressive. I'm stoked that it's coming, but it better be 100x what that presentation showed for Elite to continue to be successful considering both existing competition but also what's coming from other studios.

In NMS you can at least walk around in your own Carrier, and design the entire interior to your liking, go into caves, build bases, etc., etc.

There's a great anticipation about the summer update, I'm quite excited to see what they come up with, they've proven time and time again that they're able to think of something fun and engaging new stuff.

Agreed.

They have consistently delivered additional fun to their game time and again. And all for free. I'm actually a little lost for words, with 'brilliant' not really covering it. How about 'amazing'? Yeah, that'll do.

Amazing!
