It has been a bumpy road for No Man’s Sky following its release earlier this year, with the game failing to deliver many of the promised features and getting the creators in some hot water. While the game’s first patch was massive and coined by the developers as being a massive improvement, they are still hard at work when it comes to getting back in the good graces of their playerbase.
As a result, the game’s 1.12 patch is now live and includes a variety of fixes, which includes allowing PC players to be able to remap keys on their keyboard and players on both platforms to be able to get mission-critical information from NPCs. You can check out the complete patch notes by clicking right here.
One of the big fixes on PC has to do with mod support, with the developer saying “Following reports of some people experiencing issues with the game while unsupported mods are installed, we’ve added mod detection which will show a warning screen on loading when mods are detected. A mouse click or button press will dismiss this screen. We have also introduced a new method for mod installation which should prevent player’s games from breaking when a new update is released. For details please see the ‘DISABLEMODS.TXT’ file in the \GAMEDATA\PCBANKS folder.”
Another big issue on both platforms has been addressed, as they have “Fixed an issue where underwater buildings could spawn without doors which in rare cases would mean the NPC missions could not be completed. (Note: If you are still being pointed to missing facilities during the NPC questlines, you can either claim a new base and re-build the NPC terminal, or if you have a Freighter, remove the NPC terminal from your base and rebuild it in the Freighter. The NPC should then give you new coordinates. We are still working on a more permanent fix for this issue).”
No Man’s Sky is available for PlayStation 4 and PC. While the game had been accused of using false advertising that lead to an investigation by the Advertising Standard Authority, they recently concluded that the game’s advertising was not misleading.
