Assistive Tools and Resources
- Assistant for No Man's Sky by Kurt Lourens - This Apple/Android App presents a lot of game data in a more convenient way, like all game recipes, item costs and more.
- Cheat Engine by Dark_Byte - a powerful tool for adjusting any game variable loaded in memory in real-time. Note that these changes only last the time of your current game session, and must either be saved & reloaded alongside Cheat Engine each time (via CheatTables) or copied over to related game files to create a mod (i.e. recompiled MBINS, packed into .pak files).
- NMS PCBANKS Explorer-Unpacker This tool included with AMUMSS could search and extract desired files directly from .pak files and browse all the game file structures.
- NMS Reward Allocator by GmrLeon - this tool allows one to add either preexisting rewards, or custom rewards, to every interaction of any set of existing interactions in the game.
- NMS UI visualizer by Monkeyman192 - WIP
- NMS Extracted Tables by Lo2k - Lists all the game products and substances extracted from NMS_REALITY_GCSUBSTANCETABLE and NMS_REALITY_GCPRODUCTTABLE files.

- NMS Annotation Script Generator by GmrLeon - These two generators, one for products, tech, & substance tables, and the other for the various mission tables of the game, create scripts that when run annotate the tables with translations from the localization tables for their various localization ids. This makes reading over these different tables significantly easier than jumping back & forth between them and the localization tables.
- NMSE (No Man's Sky Script Extender) by Gregkwaste - similar to script extenders in games like The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, new functionality can be added through NMSE via external scripting. [NOTE: This hasn't been updated since the initial release of the game. If anyone would be interested in reviving this project, many people would be very appreciative!]
