No Man's Sky has its fair share of visual effects to add atmosphere and ambience, but for the interface purists out there, they just look bad or get in the way. If you'd like to banish the post-processing — chromatic aberration, scanlines and so forth — Clean UI is the mod for you.
The mod, which weighs in at a mere 5KB, alters the game's shaders to remove the aforementioned effects.
Here's the brief explainer from Clean UI's page on Nexus:
This is the NEXT version of my Clean UI mod that basically cleans screen from default effects.
So what does this mod do:
- Removes top screen vignette (darken) effect
- Removes top screen scanlines - Removes top screen chromatic aberration
From what I can tell, it's all or nothing, so if you like one of the above effects and not the others, you're out of luck.
If you'd like a preview, you can see the mod in action below (via Kane Hart):
I've played a total of about 12 minutes of No Man's Sky. Gita Jackson has played many hours of it. I've been following Kotaku's coverage of the No Man's Sky Next update this week, and it has me wondering if now is the perfect time to get into the game.
