This Standalone App Lets You Build Bases To Add To No Man’s Sky

Make building your next intergalactic home as easy as Townscaper.


There’s a lot to do in No Man’s Sky, but I have to admit that building bases is probably one of my least favorite things to do. Building anything in No Man’s Sky has always been too finicky. Unlocking all the pieces and then snapping them into place from a first-person perspective has never really spawned my creativity. But I admit, I may be in the minority. No Man’s Sky has added so many new cosmetic pieces that true builders don’t just build bases anymore:they are making plays of Art.


Frankly, I’ve always been a bit jealous of those builders, but this new app might finally level the playing field. This standalone base building app by Charlie “DjMonkey” Banks promises to be a simple and easy way to build bases in No Man’s Sky, reducing the workload of having to physically place every part in the game to something else like Townscaper or The sims.

All you need to do is choose your parts, place them in a featureless void, and then position and paint them however you like. Once you’re done building the base, drop the app into a No Man’s Sky save editor like Nom Nom or GoatFungus, then import the entire base into your save with a few clicks. You’ll need to position your base so it doesn’t appear halfway up a mountain, but it’s still much simpler than manually placing each component in the game.

Banks admits that the current app is “quite BETA indeed“, and there may be some things missing compared to existing Blender plugins, such as power management. There may also be more than a few bugs. Please be patient while development continues.

So far, it appears that the Base Building app is only for land bases in No Man’s Sky, but hopefully freighter functionality will be added later. To download the app, head over to Nexus Mods.
