No Man's Sky, the space exploration game developed by Hello Games, recently received a new update, called Foundation update, which finally introduces some new features to the game, as well as tweaks and fixes. Another small update, which will introduce additional fixes for the PC version, is apparently coming soon.
On the game's Steam Community forums, it's been confirmed that this small No Man's Sky update will be releasing soon. Among the tweaks that will be included will be the ability to remap the build menu and fixes for rare crashes, monitor detection and more.
- 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 click or button press will dismiss this screen.
- Allowed remapping of the build menu and quick menu commands to support Azerty keyboards.
- 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. Note: this is a preventative fix and won’t fix the issue for those who have already experienced this bug. We have a cure for those who have experienced on the way, it’ll be released in our next patch.
- Following player feedback, we have clarified messaging when being given tech that you already know.
- Fixed a number of rare crashes (if you continue to experience crashes, please send a crash report and include your crash dumps).
- Fix for monitor detection on PCs with 3rd party remote desktop or screen sharing applications.
- Running the game via the .exe file should no longer give Steam Init errors.
The new No Man's Sky PC update is now available in the experimental branch, and it will be made available for all once the teams feel comfortable about the fixes' stability.
