Ok…just checked. No time restrictions. Only thing I have checked is to throttle downloads while streaming.

Don’t install any upgrades in your main EXO suit inventory until this patch rolls out. I lost 4 upgrades I had last night.

I tried the distress beacon search for a damaged ship tip from the video. It took multiple tries, 4 or 5 over a few hours of distractions and inventory cleaning but it paid off! I’ve got a 25 slot starship with an Emeril Lagasse Drive that will allow me to fly to rare green stars and maybe it will make some chili for me. BAM!
Something not mentioned in the video: after the exchange of the damaged ship for the fully functional ship, the damaged ship was still sitting on the landing platform in the station. It was tagged as an abandoned ship. So I claimed it. Added it to my collection. So now I have three ships. The starter ship, the damaged ship (which are both class c fighters), and the new fully functional ship which is a class b shuttle.
Will try to get pictures uploaded later, right now they are in limbo trying to upload off of my Xbox.

UPDATE: It is an exploitable glitch maybe? I just got a second class b shuttle for a total of four ships because I was able to reclaim the damaged ship after exchange it for a fully functional one.

UPDATE DEUCE: The glitch only works with damaged ships. I exchanged one of my class b shuttles for a class b fighter and the shuttle is no longer accessible.

UPDATE THRICE: After a save and reload my damaged ship is no longer in inventory. My four others are though.

Made three million harvesting larva cores from whispering eggs. Took about an hour. Farmed 30 cores. Going to try some salt mining and chlorine refining next. @Mowerguy90 has made some bank off of it.

Holy :poop:! Cryo Pumps! I found a blueprint for cryo pumps by scanning secure frequencies. Went from 2 million units to around 60 million units and bought a class a freighter in about an hour.


#38

I had a glitch the other night where I got stuck in my freighter when I was trying to fly out. I am on Xbox however I believe it affects PC and PS as well. Reloading doesn’t seem to fix it. I flew another ship out of the freighter then trimmed around and went right back in. Tried the ship that kept getting stuck and it flew out, no problem. One gamer reported in a subreddit thread that warping the freighter to another system fixes it if you only have one ship or if you have two ships merged in the freighter. There is no official forums for Hello Games. They suggest watching the subreddit.

I have updated my main post with some helpful charts.

Experimental patch notes 8/08.

They duplicated some of this from previous experimental patches.

https://steamcommunity.com/app/275850/discussions/0/1746720717333679989/

A few quality of life thing there for me, but no frigate repair fix. Although warping out of system with the freighter seemed to be a valid workaround, however annoying.

There is a bit about there about backing up your saves, which is a good fyi if you are on experimental or not.

Official Patch 1.59 release:

No Man’s Sky

FULL STORIES HEADLINES

Development Update - 1.59

No Man’s Sky - Hello Games

More info available here:
https://www.nomanssky.com/2018/09/development-update-1-59/

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for your feedback and kind words after our last development blog post. We hope to continue sending these updates for a little while. It’s nice to be at a point in time where we can share information and updates with the community.

While some of us are also beginning to work on new features and content, the team continue to work hard making fixes. We listen intently to the community and appreciate the effort people go to in writing up bugs and feature requests.

Community Research Update
The response to our first community mission was great to see, and your feedback is being rolled into 1.59 and 1.6. It was also lovely to read all the messages left by explorers on the Community Research planet - so many notes sent from all across the world and broadcast all over the universe.

Specialist Polo continues their investigation into a strange new phase of galactic generation. The collective digging efforts of the last week have given them a vast store of Hex Cores on which to experiment, and they have several promising leads. What secret do these cores hold, what message are they bringing for the universe?

While they continue to investigate, Polo’s mind has turned to biology. Beginning on Thursday 6th September, they will reach out to all explorers and once again request their assistance in documenting the changes taking place in the fabric of reality.

This research project involves finding and feeding animals on a planet that shows signs of previous Hex Core contamination. Dedicated Travellers who explore the diets of the creatures on this world will be rewarded with Quicksilver to spend at Polo’s Synthesis Bot. Polo notes that explorers are free to carry out their own research or refinement projects on any animal byproducts produced during these encounters.

The Quicksilver Synthesis Bot has also developed some new items:

  • A range of new base building parts. Travellers may attempt to curry favour with the Gek or the Sentinels by constructing large metal statues around their home.

  • The sleek, stylised Blazing Orbit helmet, available as a fully-recolourable customisation option to the Anomaly suit.

  • A pair of touching decal portraits of Nada and Polo themselves.

  • A new laughing gesture , allowing Travellers to experience joy.

The Synthesis Bot is striving to please its masters by creating a diverse range of new items, tailored to their desires. Significant new developments will appear in the shop in the coming weeks, as well as new ways to discover Quicksilver while playing…

Development Update - Current Patch and Future Plans

Patch 1.59 is live on all platforms today and has a number of critical fixes. It also introduces the new items to the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot.

While some members of the team have been working to make these fixes and to get them to you as soon as possible, the rest of the team have been hard at work on upcoming features and critical fixes, optimisations and Quality of Life improvements. Some of these will follow in the coming days.

We don’t normally do this, but here is a sneak peek, the team are also currently working on:

  • Fixing an issue that prevents shared bases from downloading while exploring.

  • Adding new attack behaviours to the Biological Horrors…

  • Enabling terrain tessellation on PS4 (base and Pro) and Xbox One X. New dynamic tessellation enables detailed terrain height maps without sacrificing performance.


  • New, custom options for body shape have been added to the appearance modifier. This gives players far greater control over how they appear in the universe, increasing the diversity and variety of characters for all races

  • Based on feedback from the community, we’ve added the ability for players on PC to set Hotkey Bindings to rapidly access options in the quick menu. This allows players to bind commonly used functions such as switching to third person, using their torch, or entering photo mode to number keys (or those mice that have loads of buttons).

As we continue development, more of the team will become free to work on new features. We want to involve the community in shaping these features, and hope to share some of this plan with you in the next few weeks.
Thank you for being here with us as we continue to develop No Man’s Sky NEXT, and we hope you enjoy all our improvements and expansions to the game.

Thank you so much,
Sean
