Can PC Mods Save No Man's Sky?

With the new release of No Man's Sky comes a lot of controversy. It may all come down to the fact that this game was severely over-hyped. While I enjoyed the initial gameplay and features, I could not help but feel the game was a little rough around the edges. This is where the benefits of being a PC gamer kicks in, the community has already started creating many mods for this game. We have everything from improved textures, "Instagram filter remover" and a mod to get rid of that annoying press and hold cursor. 

While modding sometimes ruins the game's integrity, I feel No Man's Sky is a game that will reap full benefits from the modding community. As of now we may be looking at the next-gen Skyrim if every falls together well. By this I mean: modding should be allowed as long as they don't plan on adding a multiplayer function. If there is a multiplayer function in the future, they need to separate single and multiplayer modes. I don't believe the developers have commented on the mods as of yet but I can see the game prosper if they fully support it. 

Here are a few mods that I have tried and enjoyed:


1. Fast Actions - This will remove the click and hold to select, making it just a single click.


2. Visual Overhaul +


3. ShutUp - 75% does not mean low...


There are plenty of other mods on multiple sites, I have just mentioned the ones that I am using. Please know that certain mods do ruin the integrity of the game by making it too easy or just straight up cheating, it is up to your video game ethics to decide. No Man's Sky's modding community is still in its infancy and I'm sure there will be endless mods to come. I hoped you guys enjoyed the article, I will be getting back to being a space pirate.

    IMO, no matter what mods you get, I don't think it's going to save No Mans Sky as it's just too boring at the moment, and there's not a lot that can be added to make it entertaining, without completely re-writing the game.

    No Man's Sky is very huge game. Developers need more time to polish it. I think few years.

    I am doubtful.. Wish they were honest during E3.. It is going to be hard for other developers to prove their IP's.

    It's weird I heard little but only about how good this game is, but most because of the amount of planets, I guess it's just publicity and not gameplay, I hope every game and company improve, so let see how it ends.

    Absolutely not. You are graciously sugarcoating one of the worst deceptive marketing strategies in modern gaming too. The guy flat out lied for years and delivered a shell of a game that is entirely tedious mundane tasks.

    This is just another example in the long list of example of why people should never pre-order games.

    Not sure mods alone would save this game, but surely some player can use them to better their own experiences

    I hope mods make this game exciting.  I was so stoked for the game for years and then massively disappointed when I read all the reviews.  I've held off on buying it for now, but a great modding community might change that.

    So i think it can be a decent game if developers will give even more support to the modders

    Been reading the comments at Steam... this game is about to go from limelight to darkness very fast.

    I'm definitely looking forward to trying out some mods with No Man's Sky. The ShutUp mod sounds especially useful ;)

    Inb4 Sony forbids these sites to use the No Man's Sky name and make money on clicks without giving Sony the maximum share of the profit.

    Well it looks like I can finally go on knowing that other people struggle with hearing "Life support low" when it hits the 75% mark.

    I think the console players will still simply drop the game. And as long as there is no story mod for no mans sky I cannot see why I should play it more hours Smile
