Version: 3.85 Outlaws Update

The latest update for No Man’s Sky dropped today and it is called “Outlaws”. Version 3.85 is the 140th official update from Hello Games and the 10th update within the “Origins” iteration (Version 3.x).

“Outlaws” introduces a variety of miscellaneous patches, a new starship type equipped with solar sails, outlaw systems with rebel space stations, wingman starship recruitment and much more. They even added some minor, but fun content, like hoods & capes with realistically-simulated cloth physics.

You can read the full patch notes here.

On the Portal Repository I’ve updated the version tagging for newly-submitted portal addresses for version 3.85, as well as adding two new tags: 1) Outlaw System 2) Solar Ship. When submitting a new portal address these new tags are available to select under the “System Name” field and in the “Ships, Multitools & Others” section, respectively.

Version: 3.8 Sentinel Update

The latest No Man’s Sky update has been released and it is titled: Sentinel. This update focuses heavily on combat mechanics related to the sentinels and introduces a number of new features and improvements to the Exomech. You can read the full patch notes here.

Also, don’t forget that The Portal Repository already has a “Sand Worm” tag that you can use to search for portal addresses with sandworms:

Version 3.6 Frontiers

The latest No Man’s Sky update has finally arrived and is called Frontiers!

You can read the full patch notes from Hello Games here.

Among all the changes in this new release is a new game feature called “Planetary Settlements” which are NPC towns that players can manage and control. Currently it seems that players can only control one settlement at a time, and settlements are essentially treated like player bases (only one player can control a single settlement). For more information about Planetary Settlements keep an eye on this wiki page as the community starts exploring this new game feature!

The Portal Repository website has been updated to reflect the new version number and the new tag “Settlement” has been added as well. When you submit a portal address simply select the number of players that control settlements on that particular planet. The “Settlement” tag will be added automatically. The portal address metadata table will also display the number of player-controlled settlements.

Finally, a new quick link for Settlements has been added to the homepage. The quick link will take to you to “Settlement” tag archive page.

Update Version 3.3: Expeditions

The latest version of No Man’s Sky has been released today and is titled Expeditions. This release introduces a new seasonal game mode with exclusive limited-time rewards, miscellaneous rebalancing, performance optimizations and various bug fixes.

One major change in Expeditions is that the various platform-based discoveries databases has been unified. This means a named discovery on PS4 will now be the same on other platforms like Xbox and PC. If a discovery was previously-named on multiple platforms then the oldest discovery will take priority. This is a pretty substantial change that is likely to have repercussions for player civilizations that occupy the same regions on different platforms.

Another major change is that base uploads are now fully cross-platform compatible. Players can visit any other uploaded base, even if the base was uploaded on a different platform. Presumably base uploads are still restricted by game mode, so bases built and uploaded in Creative mode still won’t be visible to players in Normal mode, for example.

You can view the Top Ten portal addresses page to find some of the most popular portal addresses among the community submitted during the various 3.x Origins versions. Addresses published in previous versions of version 3.x Origins (Halloween, Next Generation and Companions) will have a warning notification banner appended to inform players that the discovery names and player bases might be different.

The new game mode “Expedition” has been added to the portal address submission form. Likewise, the new version tag has been created and will be automatically applied to new portal addresses submitted from today onward. Now that it doesn’t matter what platform players are using I will create some new quick links on the site to quickly list all the bases in a certain galaxy by game mode (all bases in Euclid in Normal mode, for example). This should make searching and filtering for desired locations a bit easier.

Please leave a comment if you have any other suggestions for changes on The Portal Repository website.
