No Man’s Sky launched back in 2016 with a mixed reception as the game lacked a lot of features that were promised before the game’s launch, however, developer Hello Games have tried to patch in the features that were promised but not all of them made it to the game and now a new No Man’s Sky Mod that brings a lot of graphical features and performance boost.
This No Man’s Sky Mod is titled RaYRoD’s Overhaul v10 and is currently in beta.
This No Man’s Sky mod includes “big performance boost, spectral class adjustments, overwhelming weather fixes, greatly expanded fog, height fog, space skies, day-time skies, nighttime skies, dusk skies, E3 skies + More!”.
In related news, No Man’s Sky uses procedural generational techniques to render near an infinite number of planets and according to game’s creator himself, that the game’s development was like building a rocket ship.
He added that working on the game engine was fun for him as he wrote the code for his engine day and night and then things changed when the first trailer for the game was showcased.
We showed the first trailer, and from then on it was like, it was like we were building a rocketship on the way up, like, to the sun, being fired into the sun with the skin burning from our faces, right? It was like, it was a bit of a rollercoaster ride from then on. But at the start it was genuinely just a hobby and something super enjoyable.
