No Man’s Sky is a popular space exploration video game that offers a lot of reasons to play. The procedurally generated universe is enormous, and the potential for exploration is virtually infinite. But even with all that potential, there may be some mods you want to install to make your experience even better. Here's a guide on how to do it.

Can You Mod No Man’s Sky?

The answer is yes, you can mod No Man’s Sky. However, modding No Man’s Sky is not officially supported by the developers, Hello Games. This means that mods may not work properly with every update or patch of the game.

They may also cause conflicts or errors with other mods or the game itself. Therefore, you should always backup your saved files before installing any mod and use them at your own risk.
