NO MAN’S SKY

Fan ideas for future releases

Kind thanks.

Please also excuse “Amateur Hour” with regards to my Photoshopped images. They merely are to serve
as functional visuals, to make the ideas appear more concisely, along with the text.

There are a lot of people, like myself who love the game - as it is - but are excited so much
by it, that we’d love to see if you would consider adding on top of your own ideas,
with ideas like these. Possibly many ideas here are tropes that you are purposefully avoiding,
but some of the ideas put forward are more about making menus and things easier to use.

Please take the time to read through, if you have it, if only because a misguided or
bad idea in here, might spark something that you will decide on yourselves as the team,
to be a different and more interesting avenue to explore.

Whilst I would literally do a flip, to see one of these ideas make it into No Man’s Sky, I am
under no illusions that they might be undesirable to the developement team or that there
may be no feasible way of implementing them into the code.

I don’t, for a moment, expect you to even consider them, but am sending them
anyway, because your website states that you are listening to feedback from the fans.

I am sending this with absolutely zero knowledge of how the game mechanics
are coded, or if they are even viable from a design standpoint.
These are merely ideas, borne of excitement and joy from playing your game.

Seriously, please read... ( this isn’t legalise, just explaining myself... )

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE MAJORITY OF THE CONTROLLER'S BUTTONS ARE USED UP AND MAYBE MORE
WILL BE MAPPED IN THE FUTURE, SO I THOUGHT WHY NOT EITHER; INSTEAD OF THE SUB-OPTIONS
MENU ( PRESSING DOWN, THEN ACROSS TWICE OR MORE ) ...SPLIT THE DS4'S TOUCHPAD ( LIKE IN
DRIVECLUB ), WHERE THE RIGHT HALF OF THE TOUCHPAD IS USED AS NORMAL, TO BRING UP YOUR
INVENTORY. AND THE LEFT SIDE TURNS PHOTO MODE ON OR OFF ? OR MAYBE BETTER STILL, ESPECIALLY
WHEN IN A VEHICLE, HAVE PHOTO MODE MAPPED TO “UP” ON THE D-PAD . LIKE A HOT KEY TO JUMP
IMMEDIATELY INTO PHOTO MODE. AS IT IS, THE MENU NAVIGATION IS SLIGHTLY TOO CONVOLUTED TO
BE ABLE TO GRAB EXCITING BATTLE SHOTS IN THE VERY MOMENT THAT THEY HAPPEN.

PS4 / PRO : PHOTO MODE -

GAME ENGINE &
MENU CONTROLS

PLEASE ALLOW FOR THE FOV SLIDER, FROM PHOTO MODE,
TO BE USED FOR IN GAME. OR AT LEAST SET FOV
BETWEEN 112 AND 130 IF POSSIBLE? I ASSUME THAT VANILLA
PS4 WILL SUFFER, SO THE SLIDER CAN GIVE PLAYERS THE OPTION
OF A LOWER FRAME-RATE, BUT WIDER FOV IF THEY SO CHOOSE
FOR THEMSELVES.

PS4 / PRO -

PLEASE ALLOW FOR HOURS PLAYED TO BE ADDED
TO STATS IN GAME

PS4 / PRO -

OPTION TO LOCK 4K MODE AT 30FPS OR CHOOSE 1080P AT
60FPS MODE ONLY FOR THE GAME.

PS4 PRO ONLY -

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS
FOR CONSOLE MENU

BOTTOM LEFT: PS4 / PRO INSTANT ACCESS TO PHOTO MODE
VIA THE “ HOT KEY ” - “UP” ON DS4’s D-PAD.

TOP RIGHT: PS4 / PRO F.O.V. SLIDER FOR IN-GAME MODE

TOP LEFT: PS4 “HOURS PLAYED” TIMER

GALAXY MAP

WHERE YOU CAN TYPE IN ANOTHER USER'S CO-ORDINATES
AND IT CAN MAKE A PATH, JUST AS IT WOULD A PATH TO THE
CENTRE, TO THEIR HOME WORLD. THIS IS ESPECIALLY NEEDED
NOW THAT YOU ALLOW US TO SHARE OUR BASES. NOT A TELEPORT,
JUST A PATH OF JUMPS, AS ANY OTHER PATH, BUT ALWAYS HEADED
TOWARD THE OTHER PLAYER'S HOME BASE. ONCE AT THEIR HOME,
WE CAN USE THEIR SPACE STATION'S TELEPORT TO JUMP BACK
AND FORTH FROM THEN ON, LIKE USUAL. A PLAYER CAN BUILD
A SIGNAL SCANNER, TAKE THE CO-ORDINATES AND POST THEM
ONLINE, SO THEN PEOPLE CAN TYPE SAID CO-ORDINATES INTO
THEIR GALACTIC MAP.

HTTPS://WWW.REDDIT.COM/R/NOMANSSKYTHEGAME/COMMENTS/52KQJI/THE_HUNT_ FOR_PILGRIM_STAR_WEB_BATTERIES_INCLUDED/ ),

PLEASE ALLOW FOR A USER HOME BASE WAYPOINT SYSTEM JUST LIKE THE PILGRIM STAR PATH ( PLEASE GO TO THIS LINK TO
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT IT'S REDDIT CREATOR PAHEFU VIA
ANALYSIS DATA BY REDDITOR IBOLT AND OTHERS:

ALL FORMATS -

PLEASE ALLOW FOR A USER
HOME BASE WAYPOINT
SYSTEM

NOTE: EXTRA INPUT ON DS4’s D-PAD FOR ACTIVATING THIS IDEA

THIS PAGE: MOCK UP OF HOW THE WAYPATH SYSTEM MIGHT LOOK, WHEN TYPING IN OTHER HUMAN PLAYER’S CO-ORDINATES

NO MAN’S SKY
PLANET SYSTEMS

PLEASE. MORE BLACK, DARK MIDNIGHT BLUE,
DEEP BURGUNDY SPACE AND PLEASE LESS GARISH GREEN AND
PINK SPACE, THOUGH NOT THAT I WANT THEM TO BE GONE.
JUST MORE DARK SPACE PLEASE.

ALL SYSTEMS -

EVEN IF YOU MAKE IT SO WE ARE UNABLE TO TRAVEL INTO A
GAS GIANT ( SOME INVISIBLE WALL STUFF WHEN TOO CLOSE,
PERHAPS ). MAYBE HAVE WHAT IS, AT THE MOMENT, THE FIELD
OF ASTEROIDS THE RINGS AROUND A PLANET WHEN YOU GET
UP CLOSE AND THEN REDUCE THE ASTEROIDS RIGHT DOWN
ELSEWHERE IN THE SYSTEM ? THEY'LL STILL NEEDED TO BE
DOTTED AROUND I GUESS FOR IF THE PLAYER RUNS
OUT OF FUEL HALF-WAY TOWARD A PLANET.

GAS GIANTS / RINGED PLANETS / BINARY STARS /
COMETS SHOOTING THROUGH THE SYSTEM.

ALL SYSTEMS -

PLEASE ADD

BOTTOM LEFT: RINGED PLANETS

TOP RIGHT: UN-LAND-ABLE ( ? ) GAS PLANETS

TOP LEFT: MORE DARK SPACE AND SHOOTING STARS

ALSO, WHERE BARREN PLANETS HAVE A GENTLE WIND SOUND, MAKE CRYSTAL PLANETS HAVE ALMOST ZERO
BACKGROUND NOISE. MAYBE JUST VERY EERIE FOOTSTEPS ON GLASS WITH EVERYTHING ELSE VIRTUALLY SILENT.

"ONCE IN A BLUE MOON" WHERE THE PLANETS TEXTURES ARE LIKE WEATHERED CRYSTAL, LIKE WHITE OR VERY
LIGHT BLUE/PINK PLUTONIUM STYLE TEXTURES? MAKE EVERYTHING THAT IS LANDSCAPE,SHARP AND POINTY.
SO THAT LONG FALLS DAMAGE YOU GREATLY. AGAIN, GAME PLAY-WISE, IT COULD BE ANOTHER VARIANT ON A
BARREN PLANET, WITH SOME RELEVANT CLUSTER THAT ISN'T BIOLOGICAL LIFE LIKE THAMIUM9 PLANTS. JUST
CLUSTERS OF PLUTONIUM ( SO CAN REFUEL ) AND SOMETHING ELSE?

ANOMALY PLANETS: JUST FOR WEIRD’S SAKE -

NO MAN’S SKY
PLANETS

ALSO,WHERE BARREN PLANETS HAVE THAT HAUNTING, YET
BEAUTIFUL WIND AND NO MUSIC, PLEASE GIVE VOLCANIC PLANETS
AN OMINOUS, IMPOSING KIND OF ROAR, AS IF IT HAS CONSTANT
HOWLING WINDS. IT WOULD HELP ENHANCE THE FEELING OF DREAD.

VOLCANIC PLANETS THAT HAVE VERY LITTLE SAFE AREA THAT YOU
CAN LAND / STAND / EXPLORE ON. TO BE THE SAME AS BARREN
PLANETS, BUT INCLUDING THAT ADDED ASPECT OF DANGER. STILL
HAVE SOMETHING ( NO PLANT LIFE, LIKE THAMIUM9 ) ON THEM,
MAYBE ONLY PLUTONIUM CLUSTERS OR TITANIUM/IRON CLUSTERS.

SAND PLANETS, RIGHT OUT OF 'DUNE' PLEASE. NOT YELLOW ROCK,
BUT SAND DUNES, MOSTLY EVERYWHERE, BAR THE ODD
MOUNTAINOUS REGION, SO WE CAN STILL HAVE CAVES ETC. TO GO
INTO, AS I KNOW THE GAME DICTATES THAT CAVE SYSTEMS HAVE
TO BE SOMEWHERE ON A PLANET.

WHITE OUT 'HOTH' STYLE PLANETS PLEASE. NOT POCKETS OF
SNOW. ALL SNOW, BAR SOME ROCK ON MOUNTAIN SIDES PERHAPS.

ALL SYSTEMS -

PLEASE EXPAND ON THEM
