This is modding magic for you: A standalone app that permits No Man’s Sky gamers to design giant bases, then use a save editor to place them within the game. Devoted base-builders will discover it not only a easier, however quicker, solution to make spectacular constructions than utilizing the array of tips and exploits that gamers use in-game to simply make large stuff.

Modder Charlie Banks, aka DjMonkeyUK, posted the mod to Twitter and Nexus Mods , noting that the software could be very a lot a piece in progress. “There are some lacking issues in comparison with the Blender add-on. So bear with any potential bugs and lacking issues in comparison with Blender,” he stated. Nonetheless, taking part in round with the app is surprisingly easy, even for me—an fairly inexperienced 3D modeler.

The magic right here is that it helps you to use easy proxy components in a fundamental sandbox. You do not have to be taught to 3D mannequin, you do not have to be taught Blender: You simply make it. Banks describes it as a Townscaper-esque, and that is fairly spot on. 

The software allows you to rotate, angle, and place components simply as you may in-game. The trick is that it additionally goes additional, letting you do builds you’d by no means get away with due to their dimension and scope—there’s simply no actual solution to make a mannequin of the Iron Large with out spending a ton of additional time fiddling round with getting your self in the suitable positions.

The broader No Man’s Sky group could be very impressed with the mod, and social media reactions are overwhelmingly constructive. It is a formidable sufficient creation that No Man’s Sky creator Sean Murray tweeted about it in a easy phrase: “holy moly.” Banks stated he was “humbled” by the response from the group total.

The creator of this little No Man’s Sky hack can be an indie developer, at the moment engaged on his personal game: Tales from the Dancing Moon is a “informal story-driven RPG that has components of life-simulation, crafting, constructing and survival.”

Anyway that is my nomination for this yr’s Nobel Prize in mod improvement.

What do you imply there’s not a Nobel prize for mod improvement?
