'No Man's Sky' Update 1.76 Fixes Visions Bugs & Adds Mission - Patch Notes

No Man's Sky update 1.76 has arrived on PS4, Xbox One and PC. While not quite as noteworthy as last week's Visions update, this patch offers a few helpful fixes to provide a smoother experience across all platforms. A blog post from Hello Games outlines the major details.

No Man's Sky Update 1.76 Patch Notes

  • Fixed an issue where the Farmer would request that Coprite was planted without the player knowing the Coprite recipe.
  • Fixed an issue where the Farmer would teach the wrong Nip Nip recipe.
  • Fixed an issue where commas were missing from some large numbers in mission notifications.
  • Fixed an issue where some of the new hazardous flora would not appear on certain planet types.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Big Ball to become permanently stuck in a refiner output (this fix prevents any new occurrences, existing blocked refiners continue to be blocked).
  • Fixed an issue that caused too few crates to spawn near buildings.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented grenades from firing while the Blaze Javelin is equipped.
  • Improved the appearance of the Bubble Cluster and Glitching Separator when displayed in your base.
  • Fixed a collision issue with the Portable Reality Generator.
  • Fixed a collision issue with the ceiling of the space station.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause debug strings to be visible when selling items at a trade terminal.
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed the placement of infinite fireworks.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause Community Mission Tier progress to be incorrectly reported in the Log.
  • Fixed an issue that could allow players to hand in the maximum Community Mission contribution during the wrong dialogue, causing the "Continue" option in the final dialogue to be disabled.
  • Fixed a Community Mission exploit when the server couldn't be reached.
  • Fixed an issue where the Quicksilver Shop would only charge for one item when multiple items were purchased simultaneously.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when warping a freighter in multiplayer.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when viewing Community Research progress in the Log.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur in multiplayer when encountering anomalous creatures.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash when encountering strange rocks.

Beyond addressing these finer points, ongoing Community Research Missions have also been updated with new objectives and gear. To make the most of Visions' new features, Polo and Nada have asked players to explore formally dead planets to study new flora in and around the No Man's Sky universe. Rewards will be offered in three tiers, with Tier Zero featuring three new firework types. Tier One includes three gestures, Tier Two features a special Generator and Tier Three offers a fresh look for the Eye of Korvax helmet. As players find more flora, these items will progressively unlock at the Quicksilver Synthesis Bot.
