Development Update 9

More info available here

Hello Everyone!

It's now been a week since we released Visions, and we're so happy to see players discovering and enjoying the new colour palettes, exotic landscapes, flora and fauna, and new rare items and curiosities to collect! We think we've succeeded in enhancing the sci-fi aesthetic of No Man's Sky, and making the universe a little bit stranger - something we hope to continue doing in the future.

Today, we are releasing a patch to address a few gameplay and stability issues. We also wanted to write a small development update to highlight some community activity and reflect on the status of the ongoing two-week research mission.

Community Research Update

Specialist Polo and Priest Entity Nada have detected another shift in the fabric of realities - an aftershock of the universal regeneration that occurred only a few months ago. Dead planets have awakened and twisted into strange new environments, and Polo invites their explorer friends to first discover the anomalous flora sprouting on one of these exotic biomes, then discover as much flora as possible across the entire universe.

Perhaps as another result of this aftershock, something has changed in how the Space Anomaly is receiving and processing data. The boundaries between realities are weaker than ever. The discoveries of all Traveller iterations now contribute to a cross-reality data pool, and universal progress will unlock additional items at the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot.

Progress may also be tracked from the Galactic Atlas website.

From the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot

Tier 0 Items

3 varieties of fireworks can be constructed outside to dazzle fellow explorers with colourful pyrotechnic displays in the skies. Not recommended for indoor use.

Tier 1 Items

3 new gestures to express disbelief or heroism, or to gaze stoically towards the horizon.

Tier 2 Item

A Pocket Reality Generator, to generate a universe at a miniature scale.

Tier 3 Item

Finally, the Eye of the Korvax helmet introduces a sleek new customisation option.

Development Update

The patch notes for Update 1.76 are below, with these fixes live on Steam now. Thank you for playing!

Thank you so much,

Patch 1.76
  • Fixed an issue where the Farmer would request that Coprite was planted without the player knowing the Coprite recipe.
  • Fixed an issue where the Farmer would teach the wrong Nip Nip recipe.
  • Fixed an issue where commas were missing from some large numbers in mission notifications.
  • Fixed an issue where some of the new hazardous flora would not appear on certain planet types.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Big Ball to become permanently stuck in a refiner output (this fix prevents any new occurrences, existing blocked refiners continue to be blocked).
  • Fixed an issue that caused too few crates to spawn near buildings.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented grenades from firing while the Blaze Javelin is equipped.
  • Improved the appearance of the Bubble Cluster and Glitching Separator when displayed in your base.
  • Fixed a collision issue with the Portable Reality Generator.
  • Fixed a collision issue with the ceiling of the space station.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause debug strings to be visible when selling items at a trade terminal.
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed the placement of infinite fireworks.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Community Mission Tier progress to be incorrectly reported in the Log.
  • Fixed an issue that could allow players to hand in the maximum Community Mission contribution during the wrong dialogue, causing the "Continue" option in the final dialogue to be disabled.
  • Fixed a Community Mission exploit when the server couldn't be reached.
  • Fixed an issue where the Quicksilver Shop would only charge for one item when multiple items were purchased simultaneously.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when warping a freighter in multiplayer.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when viewing Community Research progress in the Log.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur in multiplayer when encountering anomalous creatures.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash when encountering strange rocks.

No Man's Sky Visions Out Now

Hello Everyone!

It’s quite amazing to look back and realise that since July this year we have released over a dozen free updates for No Man’s Sky.

NEXT was our largest update ever, introducing third person play, multiplayer, massive enhancements to base building, frigate fleets, and much more. Then in October, we added the Pilgrim exocraft and made a number of general improvements to exocraft - including customisation, and a new buildable summoning station. Later that same month, we released another update - The Abyss - that focused on eerie underwater visuals and gameplay, adding new environments, story missions, the Nautilon submarine, and more.

We’re never quite sure what to expect when we release these updates, and the positive response from the community means so much to us. It’s an essential part of our journey to listen and respond to the voices of our most passionate players, and so a little over a month ago, we created a survey inviting you to share your favourite aspects of the game with us and help us shape its future. One request that particularly stood out was the desire for stranger and more varied planets to explore.

Today, we’re very excited to be releasing our third named update for the year: Visions. This release concentrates on the planetary visuals of No Man’s Sky - adding to the variety of weird alien landscapes and the strange creatures living there, as well as the incentives for exploring these worlds.

Visions is available now, for free, for all No Man’s Sky players. We hope you enjoy this next step in the journey! Full patch notes are available here.

Thank you so much,

About This Game

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man's Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man's Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you'll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before - and perhaps never will again.

Embark on an epic voyage

At the centre of the galaxy lies a irresistible pulse which draws you on a journey towards it to learn the true nature of the cosmos. But, facing hostile creatures and fierce pirates, you'll know that death comes at a cost, and survival will be down to the choices you make over how you upgrade your ship, your weapon and suit.

Find your own destiny

Your voyage through No Man's Sky is up to you. Will you be a fighter, preying on the weak and taking their riches, or taking out pirates for their bounties? Power is yours if you upgrade your ship for speed and weaponry.

Or a trader? Find rich resources on forgotten worlds and exploit them for the highest prices. Invest in more cargo space and you'll reap huge rewards.

Or perhaps an explorer? Go beyond the known frontier and discover places and things that no one has ever seen before. Upgrade your engines to jump ever farther, and strengthen your suit for survival in toxic environments that would kill the unwary.

Share your journey

The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Trade convoys travel between stars, factions vie for territory, pirates hunt the unwary, and the police are ever watching. Every other player lives in the same galaxy, and you can choose to share your discoveries with them on a map that spans known space. Perhaps you will see the results of their actions as well as your own...

Now including...

Play with all 4 major updates since launch: Foundation, Pathfinder, Atlas Rises and the massive NEXT update.

An epic voyage to the centre of a shared universe awaits, allowing you to explore, trade, fight and survive alone or with friends.
