No Man's Sky - CooP


don’t you use biodomes, then you don’t have to feed the hydroponics with carbon? or do the larger ones not use carbon?

i need to grind out more salvaged tech for the blueprint analyser as i don’t have access to landing pads and my ship keeps getting put either in ym base, or wedged into the ground sticking out of the side of my sky-island.


I didn’t realise Biodomes did that, but I’ve not used them because the large hydroponic trays don’t fit inside the domes. I had a plan to have a big field of biodomes connected together but that killed it for me. I’ve just been deforesting the local area for carbon.

Progressed the farmer quest a bit further and have the Gravitino plant, the sentient plant and another I can’t remember the name of:

Exterior shot of the greenhouse/farm:

I’ve also grinded out the salvaged technology over the past few weeks, digging up everything I find every time I need to go foraging for anything and I’ve unlocked everything from the blueprint analyser now. 75% of it is trash but there were a few useful bits in there including two new ‘storage containers’ (that don’t let you store stuff) that need higher level resources to craft but give you navigation data and random loot (I got a Gek relic as the first one).

Reading around it seems I have to just go with the ‘Base computer archive’ quest and I will eventually get the other 9 storage containers that way, which is annoying.

I need to do what you’ve been doing Adrock and start grinding out the crafting recipes for the top tier of craftable loot to go with the farm.


I feel so left behind. I’ve not even got the farmer yet


you don’t put any hydroponic bays in the domes as they have fixed places for 15/16 plants. you lose a few spaces if you put a doorway, but you can put them on top of things and have a ladder up to the middle and keep all the planting spots free.

the end of the farmer quest line was weird, and made me want to push through the others to see if they have a similar ending.


oooooh, I might build another farm on top of my farm for high value stuff in that case, for cash and aesthetic reasons!

I obviously didn’t do the Overseer’s one, but the end of the Scientist’s and the base builder’s quest were pretty odd. Wove a big bit of story about each of them in to the final few quests.

Hammy: I’m not sure how much I could help but I’d be happy to jump in on your game to help you out - two of us mining for example could speed things up.


Cheers mate. I’ve been doing the weapons missions, think i’ve finished the scientist one. Need to get the stuff for the overseer to start the farm. Might be on later tonight


Anyone have a spare 125 million??


I got the 21(I think? Maybe 15?) slot version of this as the starting freebie. The docking bay design is flawed since they’ve placed two large masts immediately outside. Crashed in to them soo many times.


Think your base is good??


Got my farm, tips on building buildings for the farming??


As Adrock points out the glass bio domes have built-in planters and don’t need carbon to fuel them so connecting a bunch together with the corridoors would be a good shout.

I did a rectangular farm using the small cuboid rooms that cost me for each room, each connecting hall way, each window (though they weren’t required), the large beds and then the carbon fuel for the beds - so a lot more expensive. I’ve started building bio domes on top of my farm for the higher value plants.


dont have the blue prints for that. Best way to get base blueprints?

Sorry being lazy and not googling


The Overseer missions give them to you eventually. There are something like 10 missions total so it shouldn’t take too long.


New patch live

Hello everyone,

After the initial round of addressing high priority stability and performance issues, the team have been working intensely on a large number of gameplay fixes and improvements. As always, thank you for playing the game and taking the time to report any issues you encounter!

We have now released update 1.55 to PC, PS4, and Xbox One, which includes the fixes and improvements detailed below.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that prevented pre-NEXT saves from accessing the Base Computer Archive missions
  • Fixed an issue where some non-existent base parts were showing in the Guide

Hello Games


Aaaaaand no fixes for any of the bugs I’ve had!

Still, lots of other stuff fixed.


Had a quick blast, lots more stuff for sell in space stations and bloody good rates at the one in my system



So have they ironed out all the bugs yet?

Possible for folks to meet up and do combined ops?

I remember being quite excited for this game until it was actually released and seemed to be not only a complete let-down but didn’t they get taken to court over mis-selling the game or something?


Hell no, they’re progressively adding more!

Some of the bugs they claim to have fixed are still prevalent, one of the ones I’ve encountered being from the Atlas update last year that they claim to have fixed.

There is a decent enough game to play if you look past the bugs, weird design decisions and rough edges though.

You can meet up, but I’m not sure how missions work in groups, we’ve only met and farted about so far.


Yep, that’s no man’s sky really.

Best rambling simulator ever.
