Building your own base in No Man’s Sky has gotten a lot better thanks to the game’s new update. Patch 3.71 added plenty of improvements and bug fixes, most notably to the base-building mechanics.

Improved Base Building

First up, all base parts that were incorrectly deemed to change color or material in the previous patch, even without the proper textures to support them, have been fixed.

Putting electrical wires has been greatly improved in Patch 3.71. For instance, it now feels more responsive when you place them in your base. Also, the wiring mode will only show relevant options available to you. While the controls are prominently placed on top of the screen for convenience.

Previously, deleting certain base parts will also remove other parts nearby. This is no longer an issue after the developers fixed it.

Interface Fixes

The problem where your character may hover a little bit whenever you sit in a chair has been fixed. In addition, issues with large plants and trees due to the incorrect collision have been addressed.

Aside from those, there is a new feature that allows you to change the strength of the camera shake. You can tweak this in the settings menu.
