These are the mods I'm using:

Dig Out 1.3
Asteroid Fields 2.1
Space Station Interior Fix 1.1
Private Landing Pads
Darker Nights 2.0
HD Clouds for Beyond

Don't let some of the titles or their age fool you, all of these worked the last time I fired up the game a couple of months ago. Most of them do require updating after each major game version but they're done by a guy who seems to be on top of that on a regular basis.

That Lo2k Asteroids mod looks like just the thing for me, thanks Arthmoor I have it bookmarked for when I start modding the game eventually (unless Hellogames listen to us and update the frequency of asteroids themselves at some point) :)

----------------------------------------

The Living Ship update ..

https://www.nomanssky.com/living-ship-update/

.. Though at time of writing, steam depots still need updating and gog files, its still only supplying the Experimental 18/02 update (probably in the next couple of hours  / days)

 

Here's the fix list in the spoiler below, but have a good look at the link above, this update is a lot more than just fixes :)

Sean Murray has also been tweeting :

"This last week or two has been a lot of fun for Hello Games and hopefully the community. It all started with a mystery egg...

Our weekly community mission was to unlock a mysterious egg shaped object (instead of our more normal weekly content drops) and then things got weird

If you bought an egg and kept it in your ship there was a tiny chance it would begin to whisper, piecing those whispers together led to a planet where the community could find more clues to try and hatch the egg

Late last night through their hard work players began to unlock new features in an experimental build. It was a super lovely moment for the team here and hopefully for the community too

You might have noticed since Beyond we've been experimenting with something new - regular feature updates every month or so, along with community missions and new content every week

In previous years we have focused the team around one large update, leaving maybe 8 months where not much happened. Sometimes there were fun features that were wrapped up in other things waiting for release

Whilst we continue to work on more radical things longer term in the background, in the meantime we are experimenting with releasing content we know the community would enjoy as soon as we’re able. It's fairly organic, and we'll adapt as we go

We're enjoying these more regular updates, and hopefully the community seems to too. This January had more players on all platforms than any previous year, with longer, more varied sessions too. Hopefully folks will be excited about what we’re up to next whatever form it takes"

 

That note in his tweets mentioning putting the Void Egg in your SHIPS INVENTORY : I got this wrong and went with the reddit posts and just put it in my Exxosuit inventory = You dont get the Void Egg messages leading you through solving the coordinates. So I am going back to my pre-Experimental save to experience the whole thing :)

Love this game, its developing waaay beyond what I thought it would become back in 2016. I also find in more recent updates since the Vulcan Experimental and Beyond Updates, I can't fault it on performance, the new NVidia drivers ability to cap FPS one below your monitor screen refresh rate has probably helped too, I have it at 59, and the game is set to max FPS of 60, so there are no latency issues anymore causing occasional micro stutter (which was a thing prior to the Vulcan update). The new laptop may have helped too .. Whatever solved it anyway the game has been smooth as butter since all of those, and whatever improvements Hellogames have just done in this update shoud help lesser machine specs.

 

Edit : An Interview Sean Murray gave reference Living Ships update ..

https://www.gamesradar.com/no-mans-sky-creator-sean-murray-discusses-living-ship-expanding-space-exploration-and-the-future/

.. Lord knows how long Hellogames will be working on this game, but it sounds like they will be working on it for at least another year.

 

 

PATCH NOTES

LIVING SHIP

  • Introduced a new style of starship, the Living Ship.
  • These ships have their own exclusive range of organic technologies and cannot be upgraded by conventional means.
  • Adjust your playstyle to the restrictions and benefits of these organic techs, or hatch and evolve new procedural upgrades to grow your own custom ship.

  • Different encounters have different chances of occurring based on the characteristics of the solar system.

TRADER HAILS

There are possible derelict freighters to stumble over in space? All the time I've played this game I've never run into one.

They were part of the living ships update a week ago, you come across them if you are pulsing through a system like the other new anomolies (Dyson lens / Random NPC traders / Pirate Communications .. etc). Press the space bar, 5 4 3 2 1 pulsing (or press both A and D keys together, does the same as the space bar and you dont need to shift your fingers around).

Best one to note if you get a living ship, there are huge Void Egg anomalies (a bigger version of the one you can buy in the Quicksilver shop) ..

shoot it for living ship equipment upgrades. Best found in uninhabited red / green / blue systems (no NPC traders to decrease your chance of finding desired anomolies). I think its the only way currently to get those upgrades. But you have to be in a ship not carrying a Quicksilver bought Void Egg.

 

Edit : Oh and we think Hellogames made a bit of a fubar - If you play the GOG Offline Manual Installation of the game (ie with no GOG Galaxy installed), HG left out including the Void Eggs as an item to buy in the quicksilver shop = The living ships update for GOG Offline players is dead as a dodo, the quest needs you to have purchased a void egg to start it, so all the Living ships content is mostly never going to start until they correct this oversight for offline players.

Well, it appears I've fallen victim to a common bug with the Living Ship quest getting stuck once you reach the point where you have to go through a portal to advance it. Came out the other side and have no viable planets for it to use or something and it won't advance. The quest vanishes from the log entirely if I return through the portal so now my game is officially stuck.

Sent the files in with a bug report so hopefully this won't mean me needing to start all over again. Those 4 bases I made aren't likely to be repeatable things.

This NMS game sounds intresting, I might want to try it since I like science fiction games e.g Star Trek, Star Wars just to mention a few.

A Steam link?

Sounds like a bad one, hope they get a fix out soon.

Did the tilted moon issue fix do the trick in your case?

Tilted moons don't cling to the save if that's what you mean, but they still happen if you land on one. Shit stays tilted for the rest of the session.

And yes, it's a bad one. Reddit has many reported cases, along with other random forums, and Hello Games may think they fixed it already, but my saves will show them they have not :troll:

Do you have a manual save to go back to before your last auto save? (Manual saves = Those things that look like building site lighting poles which spin when you activate them, near outposts / factories / etc landing area. They also add to the Locations discovered). I occasionally use them as a just in case fall back save, or make a save point device to use prior to any missions if there is not a Manual save post anywhere near.

You cant use these when you first load up the game, but once you have it loaded just go to Options, then you can go back to however far back your last manual save was.

Thanks for the links, mate. :)

:) No problem, hope it suits you. There are still a few bugs, but no major game stoppers and Hellogames are continuing the unprecedented support for the foreseeable future. Its stil very enjoyable for me even three years after its release. Hellogames are really refining it recently with some great updates. Heads up, there is a lot to this game to get used to, but dont rush to get there, enjoy the journey and discovering .. I can just about guarantee you will die within minutes of your first run :devil: .. quite a few puzzles to solve along the way including just surviving sometimes. Its not hard line survival (unless you choose the harder game options to start with), Normal mode becomes quite easy quickly, and later game you will start to get a sense that the game is a Chill out experience, thats the point when you might want to try Survival or even Permadeath. I haven't done a good permadeath run yet, mostly because there was a bug where the world could vanish beneath your feet and you freefall to your death = All the hard work is gone because there is no other option but to start again. HG have fixed that now (I think anyway), so I might be about ready to start a Permadeath run soon .. Waiting to see what the next few updates bring.

Edit : Oh and turn the sound up :), the procedurally generated game music mixing is very good, and sometimes alien eerie. But the sound effects will probably give you occasional nostalgic moments too if you are a sci-fi fan.

Sean Murray once said they wanted people to feel like they have just walked out of a sci-fi book cover playing this game, Robert A Heinlein's "Stranger in a strange land" was the one which struck me, there are newer copies of the book with different art work, but this old one is the one I remember having ..

Ignore old reviews, a lot of what was said was deserved at the time .. But now the game has delivered what was promised and quite a lot more on top, its really matured into my all time favourite game that I hoped it would become, with a lot of unexpected but welcome additions.

Nope, I have no working manual save either. By the time I realized there was a problem I had marked a few waypoints on planets, which it considers a manual save. So I have no escape other than to start a new game and I do not want to do that because it means losing 4 bases, a class S starship, and a class S freighter. Al of which took me eons to be able to build up. So either they fix the bug and I can carry on, or I shelve the game for what will probably end up for good.

Bobbleheads are coming https://www.nomanssky.com/2020/03/beyond-development-update-8/?cli_action=1584486067.48

Looks like this update is just to let us know whats in the community / weekend unlockables, but its not really a game update (presume the resources are already in the files we all have)

I once suggested they ought to have Ron Jons Hula girl as a dashboard item for starships .. I think they took it onboard but in their own style.

Good to know they are still managing to work though despite the Coronavirus steadily impacting everyones lives.
