Game Modes: The game “No Man’s Sky” has a number of play modes, including Normal, Creative, Survival, and Permadeath. Select the playstyle that best fits the mode. For novices, normal mode is advised.
Character Creation: Create a unique appearance for your character. Although appearance doesn’t greatly affect gameplay, it gives your experience a more unique feel.

Inventory: Access your inventory with the Tab key (PC), Options button (PlayStation controller), or Menu button (Xbox).
Starting on Your First Planet
Gather Resources: As soon as you arrive on your first planet, start collecting resources. Look for minerals, plants, and rocks that can be mined. These materials will be essential for crafting and repairing your equipment.
Analyze Flora and Fauna: Use your Analysis Visor (F key on PC, L2 on PlayStation, or LT on Xbox) to scan plants and creatures. This provides valuable data and credits.
Repair Your Scanner: Your Multi-Tool scanner might be damaged. Fix it by following the prompts in the lower right corner of your screen. You’ll need some gathered resources to do this.
Locate Your Starship: Follow the on-screen markers to find your crashed starship. It’ll be damaged, so you’ll need to repair it.
Repairing and Upgrading Your Starship
Repair Essentials: Your starship will require repairs to become spaceworthy. Repair the Pulse Engine, Launch Thrusters, and other vital components by gathering the necessary resources.
Find Missing Parts: Some components may be missing. You’ll need to explore the planet to find or mine the required materials.
Navigate Using Your Starship: Once your starship is repaired, you can use it to explore your current planet or leave the atmosphere and explore space. To leave the planet, use the Launch Thrusters (W on PC, R2 on PlayStation, or RT on Xbox).
Exploring the Universe
Galactic Map: Access the Galactic Map from the starship’s cockpit to chart your course. You can explore various star systems, each containing planets and space stations.
Space Stations: Visit space stations for trading, meeting NPCs, and accessing the Galactic Trade Network.
Planetary Exploration: Land on different planets to gather resources, discover new species, and explore the diverse landscapes.
Survival and Progression
Survival: Keep an eye on your life support systems, thermal protection, and hazard protection when exploring harsh planets. These systems deplete over time, so recharge or refuel them as needed.
Progression: As you advance, you’ll be able to upgrade your Exosuit, Multi-Tool, and Starship with better technology and equipment. Collect Nanites, Units, and blueprints to improve your gear.
Building and Base Construction
Base Building: You can establish bases on planets. This allows you to farm, create storage, and build structures. Gather resources and use the Build Menu (Z on PC) to construct your base.
Farming: Create a farm to grow plants and harvest valuable resources.
Multiplayer and Community
Multiplayer: You can join friends or random players in multiplayer mode to explore the universe together.
Community Events: Participate in community events and missions for rewards and interaction with the broader player community.
Crafting and Trading
Crafting: Use the Crafting Menu (X on PC) to create items, technology, and upgrades. Experiment with combinations to optimize your gear.
Trading: Buy and sell resources, items, and technology at space stations or trade posts on planets to earn Units (in-game currency).
Tips for Success
Save Regularly: The game does not auto-save in some situations, so manually save your progress often.
Learn Alien Languages: Interact with alien NPCs to learn new words and improve your understanding of their languages. This aids in trading and communication.
Manage Inventory: Inventory space is limited. Upgrade your Exosuit and starship storage as soon as possible.
Scan Everything: Scanning flora and fauna not only earns you Units but also contributes to your journey’s scientific knowledge.
Stay Prepared: Keep an eye on your resources, and always be ready for unexpected environmental hazards.
