The Best No Man's Sky Bases We've Seen So Far

No Man’s Sky’s latest update allows players to build bases anywhere, unlike the previous version of the game, where you could only build in preset locations. The update also added some new kinds of building materials, and allows players to build their bases up to delirious heights. Here are some of the coolest and wildest bases that players are making right now.

The Next update removed the height limit for bases, which means that some of the first things players did was try to see how high up they could build. They can build real high. This player used some finagling to build a base so tall you can see it from space:

But you don’t have to get so extreme. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a good view.

The new update also brings new kinds of structures. Now you can make materials out of carbon, which is much cheaper than making a base out of metal, and also gives your home a nice, cosy cabin feel.

When Hello Games said that you can now build anywhere, they really meant anywhere. You can build into mountains, underwater, or on top of ancient ruins. The world is your oyster.

My own base right now is still just a humble shack. Who knows, though. Someday soon I might be able to build a portrait of Sean Murray that is visible from space.


    Okay, i give in. Sign me up.

      Resist! This game is still broken. The broken bits are just larger fragments of what could have been, and may yet be, as opposed to the crushed dust that it originally was.

    Is there much variation in terrain between planets? All these bases look like they could be on the same world.

      There is a decent amount of variation, but prime real estate is found on nice green planets rather than rocky, sandy planets.
