No Man’s Sky, the space exploration game developed by Hello Games, is one of the most controversial releases of 2016, mostly due to missing features that were promised for the game before release. The Foundation Update, while a good start, is definitely not enough, so it’s up to users to spice up the experience while Hello Games works on adding more features to their game.

If you’re still enjoying No Man’s Sky and want to spice up the experience a bit, you may want to check out the recently released Alien Structures mod, which adds several nice looking structures to planets.
