No Mans Sky - Update

@Arthmoor Dont go visiting your old bases yet, I recall you have done a few and put a fair bit of work into them.

I just had a look at the one I have and there are quite a few issues with it. The underwater sections of it I have to swim through and oxygen is getting depleted, not all of them, which is weird. One of the rooms used to have a Moon Pool in it too which replaced the round pre-constructed rooms floor .. Now there is not only no Moon Pool, but the entire floor is missing from that module and a new Moon Pool cannot be placed (nor is there anything there to delete and try to replace). When I teleported there the Starship was placed by the game underwater near the beach adjacent to the base .. And I stopped there. All the modules / parts I used in that bases construction are still valid parts, but I reckon Hellogames need to do a fair bit more work to get them all to work as they used to again.

I dare not visit my Freighter so far, from what I have seen on reddit there are issues with some of those building parts too which have already been used in old saves. But then I might just cave because there are some really nice new parts I might re-do the whole thing .. Hunting lots of Salvage data to get all the new parts first.

Hopefully all issues will be resolved in a few weeks, but knowing HG there will be a few left behind too and may not be rectified for a few years, so it may be another case of this update becomes like a reset and anything built prior to Frontiers may well need doing again elsewhere or with parts that work the way we need them to.

Pants!. Anyway the reason I suggest not visiting them is because of auto-saves maybe setting the problematic building parts permanently out of order. Whereas visiting them after issues have been fixed may save some grief.

That doesn't sound good. Does it look like those issues are repairable or is it a case of them being a completely lost cause requiring full teardowns and rebuilds? If it's gonna be a situation where everything is gonna have to get bulldozed anyway it sounds like a good opportunity to start a new save when the next expedition is ready and then just build new bases as needed. Or skip that entirely and go take over a settlement or two :P

I dont think its a lost cause (in my case anyway), just a bit of rebuild .. I did take a look at my freighter and there are some minor issues there which I think is going to need a tear down and rebuild of my second floor, some corners and stair ramps dont meet edge to edge where they used to so there is overlap causing the stair ramp to be inaccessible (its as if one room part has been lengthened causing a domino effect of edges not meeting as the game tries to put the parts in their saved location), and some room parts have a weird inverted corner edge poking out of the end of them until you replace the room with exactly the same room part, bizarre.

Trouble is, if I do start rebuilding parts of base or freighter now, and all the problem parts are fixed at a later date, then maybe I will have to rebuild the rebuild .. So probably best to ignore it all for the time being.

  • Fixed a physics issue that could cause players to get snagged while moving around the Space Anomaly.

Wow, its just dawned on me that's from an ancient bug report, hope it really is fixed. Seems to be fixed on first visit, but I need to visit the place lots to be sure (due to the bug not happening consistently).

Oh well at least confidence in zendesk reports eventually trickling through into updates is restored :)

Edit: Oh wait, no point testing that, us GOG players haven't got 3.63 yet :facepalm:

v3.64 public release ..

https://www.nomanssky.com/2021/09/no-mans-sky-expedition-3/

Includes all last couple of days experimental beta fixes plus ..

Cartographers Expedition.

See above link for all details - I'm not sure whether to start it or not, but I wont be able to until GOG friggin catches up, they still haven't released 3.63. Probably just as well not being able to though, let the cannon fodder go forth for a few days and highlight all the inevitable large mission bugs, and GOG even more time to get to the next update. :rolleyes:

Edit: Spoke too soon, GOG just released both 3.63 and 3.64 simultaneously https://www.gogdb.org/product/1446213994#builds O_o

New companion courtesy of Cartographers Expedition - Novelty will wear off soon, still prefer Pancake

 

@Arthmoor Reference Base issues with Frontiers :

v3.64 solved all my old land base problems (flooding of a few rooms / connecting tubes , moonpool vanished and a few other minor issues), I didn't have to edit or rebuild .. its just all back to normal.

My Freighter still has a few issues, so submitted a bug report and save.

Yep, it usually takes about 3 weeks for HG to fix all the fallout from an update, which is a bit crap for less experienced players when it also includes a timed Expedition. There are 6 weeks on the current one, one week has been used already waiting for HG to catch up with procedural bug fixes.

And some updates unfix old fixes, sigh!.

Bizzarely they have included another fix which has been waiting years to be fixed ..

  • Fixed an issue that caused a visual glitch on a specific character foot model.

Old bugs are seemingly on trickle feed. But its good to see they are still doing them slowly.

Thinking to buy them a "Round Tuit"
