PLANNED FIXES AND FEATURES:
- Spanish & French translation
- shootable dinosaurs
- NEW BIOME: pine forest
- sound effect changes
- what ever else comes to my mind... :)
- Audio files not working correctly, still says "suit energy low" instead of "hunger increases"
- Probably some mistakes in the english text version when aliens are talking to you. I did not adjust all new products to that yet.
- Some buildings can not be deleted once they are built. Need help with that ! Cannot figure out what allows objects to be deleted.
- Some buildings have no collision clipping and clipping of the wooden houses has some bugs.
- Some of the buildings are shootable, e.g. the doublecontainer. If you do so, NMS completely freezes for up to 1 or 2 minutes and you think it completely crashed. Then for some unknown reason after a loooong time waiting the explosion debris appear and you can just go on with your game. Strange but true.
- Diplos, Sandworms, Caveworms and Triceratops are not shootable.
- When you land on a scorched dead planet game might freeze for a few seconds !
- Darc Logos only work on the floor, not on walls.
HAVE FUN !
PLEASE READ !!!
This is a fully modular version. Check changelog for OPT.PAK-files description !
But PLEASE give it a try it once and use ALL included optional paks to have an awesome experience:
- delete ALL (!) mods you have installed (put them in a folder, e.g. MODS/BACKUP)
- put ONE of LANGUAGE CORE PAK FILES (english or deutsch) in your mods folder
- use only ONE of the paks with the same name written in capital letters: CAVES, SHIPS, PLANETS, DENSITY...
- YOU HAVE TO PLAY IN GERMAN OR BRITISH ENGLISH FOR HAVING THIS MOD WORKING CORRECTLY !!!
- chose the optional modular OPT.pak files you like or PLEASE TRY THEM ALL TOGETHER !
- this mod is changing so many things that it might be a bit disturbing in the beginning to get used to the new products and substances
- to have a perfect adventure honestly the best thing would be to start a new game from the beginning
- if you want add the Constructs mod, that works just fine with this.
- if you want add realistic and sharpened shaders: put the content in reshade folder into NMS Binaries folder and delete shadercache
- ENJOY A NEW NO MAN SKY EXPERIENCE !!!
ALL OPT PAKs WORK TOGETHER OR EACH ON IT´S OWN !
YOU MIGHT NEED A POWERFUL SYSTEM TO RUN ALL MODS TOGETHER...
