Hello Games has released another update for No Man’s Sky: Frontiers that implemented a lot of bug fixes, particularly to settlements and large bases. One notable fix is for NPCs that may overlap each other by occupying the same chair. Now, two NPCs should no longer do this.

The developers have also made huge improvements to NPCs found in settlements. After applying Patch 3.68, all NPCs will now talk more often and they may sometimes congregate to discuss certain affairs. Moreover, the issue where two identical NPCs may spawn for a settlement decision has been fixed, so this will likely not happen anymore.

For bases, ladders will now work correctly when you use them inside cuboid rooms. Further, snapping issues that have plagued the game have been fixed, especially when placing some corner pieces and a large number of base parts. The base building recolor menu has been improved. Now, you will know the exact name of the color you want to use just by hovering over it.

Those playing on the Playstation will be happy to know that their console got several memory optimizations. In addition, crash fixes have been implemented for all platforms, particularly those related to interactable objects, base, and settlement rendering.
