Unpopular opinion: Griefing groups shine a spotlight on an aspect of No Mans Sky that has gone under...

This is an unpopular opinion by me. It’s OK if you don’t agree. Please be civil in the comments. Also I’m on mobile so apologies for any strange formatting.

TLDR: We should not actively ignore griefers, we should instead think and talk about why and how bases are getting griefed, and how Hello Games could implement systems to better prevent it in the future.

The problem: Popular and iconic bases within player groups are getting griefed because of an exploit. Defending your base is next to impossible due to the way PVP and base building is currently implemented.

Possible solutions:

“Captian Obvious: Bug Fixes!”: Make it known to Hello Games that the base griefing exploit is a real and tangible issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Build permissions should be set to OWNER ONLY by default to help noob players.

“Sorry, we’re closed!”: Allow Base Owners to “Lockdown” their base, preventing any players from entering “locked” doors. Exiting should still be possible to avoid players getting locked in cages, another form of griefing. One way doors? “Emergency escape” hatch?

“Sorry, no multi-tool building allowed inside!”: For larger or “tourism” based builds, allow base owners to place “zones” where your Multi Tool Build Menu is inaccessible (Pressing up on the D-pad doesn’t open anything), like in Space Stations or the Anomaly, and building anything is impossible. Basically like a spectator mode but you can still mine rocks if you need resources. This one does not prevent the Terrain Manipulator grief, maybe disable the terrain manipulator while in range too? I dunno!

“PVP overhaul or update”: Personally, I don’t want fully realized PvP in NMS. It leads to toxic behavior and bullying in sandbox games like this. (Think ARK survival evolved alpha clans for example). Instead have PVP damage disabled by default, and allow players to enable it if they want to duke it out for fun with their friends.

Do you have any ideas? Please share them below. Remember this is a discussion thread, please keep it civil. Thank you for reading!

The people behind 'InfestationNMS' need to be stopped (context within).

This is there twitter where they boast about what they are doing. Do not follow them or give them any clout, I have just linked it to show you all what they are doing.

For those who do not know, recently a No Man’s Sky ‘roleplaying’ group has been causing havoc recently.

They have figured out a way to place base computers inside other people’s bases, so they can build in and ruin them. They cover people’s bases in decals and stuff related to abyssal horrors and the creatures you fight aboard derelict freighters because they claim to be a part of them.

What they are doing is griefing and there is no other way to put it.

They have been attacking famous hubs like Café 42 and various Qitatian Empire sites.

On top of that, they have also been targeting the bases of people who share their bases online, even on this very subreddit. I have been watching these guys for a while now to gather sufficient evidence, and a few weeks ago, some guy posted a screenshot of this really cool base he had built in the style of a ranch. A few days later, InfestationNMS had a m post up with pictures bragging about how they had basically trashed this place.

They even have videos of them fighting people who tried to defend their bases from them and bragging about ‘their glorious PVP battles’.

It is only either an individual doing this or a small group by the looks of their twitter following.

This is not fun for anyone and they need to be stopped. I am making this post to bring attention to this problem and hopefully have it reach Hello Games so they can bring an end to this. Please, however possible spread this and try and get it to the HG team to get rid of these scumbags.
