    I happened to figure this out very quickly and honestly by accident not long after attempting to modify the game. Figured I’d make a tutorial and just go for it from there

     

    Its very easy, you just need the tool QuickBMS and a script from their database to extract. That’s it! Let the modding begin!

      Hey man! 

      First, thanks for the tutorial, and so quick too.  

      I tried this morning to get the extraction to work but every time I went to load your .BMS the program would bring down the selection screen and then bring it back up and prompt me to select a .BMS file again.  I didn’t get much time to mess with it before work, so I’m going to play around some more with it when I get home, just wondering if you know what might be happening.

        Apparently I can’t edit posts.  Watched the video again and I’m an idiot, ignore that haha.  I needed to select the .PAK file.  that’s what it was prompting me for.

      Sorry, your video has been taken down, and No Man’s Sky is not listed on the quickbms page, so is there some other way to extract the pak files?

    Great tutorial, never knew about QuickBMS but man that tool is going to come in handy for other projects! 

    Just wanted to drop a tool mention here, DXTBMP is great for swapping DDS textures to something more editable, and vice versa.

    There’s also GIMP DDS and Normal Map plugins that are available as well!
