So the new Origins update is out now for No Man's Sky and it updates darn near everything about the game. 
New Planets, New Biomes, New Weather, New Diversity, Clouds, Fauna, UI Changes, New multi-star systems, New Landscapes....It is an exhaustive list with too much to list but you can read it all here:

    I can’t, its just, I mean.... Just stop it, everything else being developed out there is being put to shame by this tiny team. I mean, look at this update, just look at it.

    Haha so it took him 18 months to add storms and sand worms from Beetlejuice. Meanwhile u got 18 trillion astroids everywhere, can't mod it cause he had the moronic idea to cross platform the game for no reason. While the game runs like abosulute dog garbage on even top end pcs. Adding in the ai has more down syndrome than the guy who made this game.
    The bigger your opinions, the less value they have, especially when its uneducated ranting. And you have very big opinions.

    Wow!  Just about everything changed!  This moves NMS to the very top of the heap, if it wasn't there before.  SC and DU are going to have some significant challenges to keep pace with this.

    The weirdest part of your very weird post is that when you see sand worms you think Beetlejuice and not Dune.

    What's surprising to me is on IGN in a interview they said that they may not port the game to next gen consoles because there next title  will be the next gen game and will be bigger then no man's sky.

    How do you get bigger than no man's sky.

    P.s.
    Also think of Beetlejuice. Just made my wife watch it yesterday as she had never seen it before. Still holds up

    They're following what I call the "snowball" theory of software development.

    That is where you start with a little snowball, and you start rolling it in the snow. It gets bigger and bigger. Then you come to a hill and it starts really rolling.

    At the bottom, the snowball is so big, it runs over houses with no problem.

    The opposite method of development is what Star Citizen seems to be doing. Don't start with something small, instead, plan for the entire universe and then get bogged down in the million little details.

    Just checked out the update in detail in game and wow. This is a tremendous update. They did a pass on nearly everything in the game. This evokes such a sense of awe and wonder in me even after all these hours played between Xbox and PC.
    I just love it.
    So good.

    That's sounds depressing as all hell. Life must be pretty boring for you to even think up that shit.

    This is incredible and the worms are something long time sci-fi fans have clamored for since they were first hinted at pre release. It's one of the pieces suggested would be present at release but never delivered upon. They've really outdone themselves.

    Wierd....I loaded teh game, took abotu 15 minutes for it to start, then all I got was a blank white screen......No idea what is going on with NMS now. I play the PC version. Did they do something that made it much harder to run and now my vid card can't handle it?

    If you play on Steam going into settings and let background shaders compile and cache. It can take up a lot of bandwidth, drive space, and time, but some of your games might run smoother afterwards. Path of Exile is another one that has a lot of shaders to process.

    Also, it may be they've updated their openGL version to something higher than your card supports. This reddit post might help you fix that. https://www.reddit.com/r/NoMansSkyTheGame/comments/4xk0od/fix_for_video_card_without_opengl_45/


    Just some ideas to investigate if you're interested.

    cross plataforms or online plays was never was a issue to make mods, people can do it anyway, look at conan several mods, monster hunter world also have mods, worse case, make the game play offline

    I had just started a game about a week ago, so I restarted with this patch as I didn't have much to lose.  The world looks more like a real world -- rocks and outcroppings are much better than the older hills.  There's still hills, but the ones I've encountered are much more realistic.  I've been through a heat wave on the first planet, and went to the second location for some real icy fun.  I'll give a shot with the space station tomorrow.  The new terrain does produce some really dramatic elevation changes, making those jet pack boosts much more useful.  Did I mention picturesque?  My ice world has a couple of substantial cliffs.  I'll try to grab a screenshot tomorrow.

    I do wish their next round of improvements involves leveling terrain.  I really hate putting down a base computer before I build a foundation for it.  The basic story walks you through Base Computer before you start building.

    The Terrain Manipulator does have a "Flatten" mode now. I've been using it around my base quite a bit. Sadly, while the world my base was on seems to have retained major aspects like having no sentinels or extreme weather, the flora/fauna and lighting really went far in the alien direction, which disappointed me. It was a tropical paradise before.

    I was going to write a long list of ways to improve this but then i just gave up.This team is not capable of this type of game and quite likely no studio is ready for this yet.

    I don't like half assed systems,it bothers me,i need to feel like I am really immersed into a plausible world.Seeing a giant sheet of red or blue doesn't cut it for me.I need more life,more building.

    To pull off a game like this  we need to start SMALL,a LOT smaller and put the detail and love into that smallr package.This means no more HUD/ships but REAL full size with a crew ships.

    This game simply needs to be better everywhere.Maybe there is enough of a player base to support this and allow them to cash in but for me it is not good enough.Like watching gameplay,every 10-20 secs i felt like nope don't like it ,I would change that.

    ONE solar system and maybe 3-5 planets,that is where this type of game needs to start.

    I think I may have even mentioned this when NMS first came out,we are not ready for a game like this  until another 10+ years.By that time I still doubt any studio would put in the effort,we would still end up with something like NMS.
    I should give them SOME credit,this is the type of game I want to play,they are on the right track but they are just not capable or ready for this.

    Yes playing through Steam. Will take a look into that thx. It looks like others were having the white sreen crash also. Hopefully the fix works.
