The Pathfinder update is here, and with it comes a lot of mod breakage. The community has been hard at work at updating these mods for Pathfinder, and progress has been fantastic. There has been some misunderstanding on how No Man’s Sky Mods handles incompatible mods, so I wanted to clear this up. We currently unpublish broken mods so users can expect that most of what they download from the site will work with the version of the game most people are using. When a mod is moved back to a draft status, two things happen. It is removed from the index, and only the mod author and administrators of this site can update it again. When a mod is updated again, it is re-added to the mod index. If you find your mod has been unpublished, it is because someone tested it against the current version of the game, and it is no longer working.
The site managers have been discussing the best way to handle this, so it less confusing for modders and users. For now, I am adding two new categories – “Pathfinder” and “Foundation”. If you would like your mods to stay published when a new game update drops, it is recommended to add your mod to the version category it is compatible with. This will let users know if it is likely to work with their installed version of the game. I recommend not tagging versions of your mod or the game in the mod’s title, as doing that will reset the Disqus comments for the page.
