      I decided to make a quick trip into the .pak files of the no man’s sky game and identify a few of the largest files and extremely breifly explain what is in them.
      If you know more information about what is in the .paks let me know in the comments.

      The table shows .paks in order of file size, not by title.
      These are all subject to change with potential future updates.

       

      NMSARC.B9700502.pak“Audio” + “Music”
      NMSARC.4F9B8F8E.pakTextures 1 – Various
      NMSARC.7196415F.pakModels Various
      NMSARC.8A317009.pakTextures 2 – Biomes
      NMSARC.F69678E1.pakTextures 3 – Atlases
      NMSARC.2740118B.pakTextures 4 – TriceratopsRig
      NMSARC.70F7A98C.pakTextures 5 – CatRig
      NMSARC.2B22EB1B.pakTextures 6 – NPC’s
      NMSARC.654FBB65.pakTextures 7 – Various AI textures and animations?
      NMSARC.1A1B4C22.pakVarious UI/HUD mbins, e3 2015 demo files, vehicle, weapon and projectile mbins (could be models?)
      NMSARC.E18CB95F.pakTextures 8 – Frozen Planet textures
      NMSARC.4FA03C1C.pakTextures 9 – RodentRig
      NMSARC.F623A57.pakTextures 10 – TrexRig
      NMSARC.DEEEE8A1.pakTextures 11 – Rainforest Planet textures
      NMSARC.E1C9922D.pakTextures 12 – AntelopeRig
      NMSARC.CF65DDB2.pakWhat looks like an extension of “NMSARC.1A1B4C22.pak”

       

      I can add more if people would like me to but the rest are all quite small sizes and become less and less specific.
      I believe the above cover most important aspects of the game.

      I was looking for this thread :p

      Unfortunately I extracted the largest .PAK file before I did find it.

       

      Seeing as I’m extracting various stuff right now, I’ll do some of the smaller ones.

      Thanks again you’re the real MVP

       

      I unfortunately don’t see a way to edit this post so I guess it stands as is where is.

       

      Is that every .Pak file mentioned?

        No where near :3

        That’s most of the small ones (still a few more of those), but there are still many between 1MB and 450MB that I haven’t done yet.

      Give me a half hour and I will post a full list, I had it but accidentally deleted it I guess. I have to re-extract all the pak files in order to get the list so it will be a few.

        Sorry, I guess my issues were more than a deleted text file. I can no longer get Mass Extractor or Listgen to work properly. I will continue working on it and when resolved I will try and get a list up here, no promises.

          Well I have a full file list in text format but I guess I cannot attach txt files here and it is to large (3198KB) to copy/paste. Anyone know of a format I can use?
