Last week, Hello Games confirmed that a new small No Man’s Sky update was going to release soon on PC. A few hours ago, this new update has been made available on both PC and PlayStation 4, introducing a variety of fixes.

One of the biggest fixes introduced in the No Man’s Sky 1.12 update is a new mod detection system and new mod installation method which should prevent games from breaking when a new update is released.

Here are the full patch notes.

Patch notes

  • [PC] 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.
  • [PC] Allowed remapping of the build menu and quick menu commands to support Azerty keyboards.
  • [PC] We’ve enabled a temporary workaround for the SLI issues people are experiencing. If you are running in SLI, please disable TAA and the game should run. We are looking into a more permanent solution to this issue.
  • Fixed an issue which, in some rare cases, prevented NPCs from giving you mission critical dialogue.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause core items to be transferred from exosuit inventory to starship inventory.
  • Fixed a number of rare crashes (if you continue to experience crashes, please send a crash report and include your crash dumps).
  • [PC] Fix for monitor detection on PCs with 3rd party remote desktop or screen sharing applications.
  • [PC] Running the game via the .exe file should no longer give Steam Init errors.
  • 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).
