Not awed by No Man’s Sky? Maybe you just need a change in perspective.
The No Man’s Sky mod scene is still super young, but it’s already spawned some pretty popular mods. Among them, the BigThings mod stands tallest in that it’s already got extremely enthusiastic supporters and, well, it makes everything really tall. Trees, plants, and rocks become towering, imposing—like nobody’s trimmed them in years, like nobody’s laid eyes on them in ever. Suddenly, the game’s planets feel like something out of Prehistoric times, or at least Jurassic Park.
The Bigger Creatures mod adds to this impression, giving many creatures you encounter dinosaur-like proportions. Underpopulated planets don’t feel quite so lonely when everything’s fucking enormous.
The two mods have upped many people’s enjoyment of No Man’s Sky, mine included. They can, however, cause your framerate to take a slight hit in places. It’s nothing too terrible, though.
Watch me explore a few planets with these mods in the video above.
