No Man’s Sky Not Saving Plant and Animal Names

Posted on by Ryan


As if the negative feedback that No Man’s Sky has received wasn’t already bad, it seems to have gotten worse. A Reddit post has surfaced from a player who says that the game did not keep his renamed plants and animals that was originally done at the beginning of the game. Stating..

So as I got closer to the center I thought to my self I should head back home good thing I set a waypoint on my starting planet to find my way back. I finally made it back after many hours and I found out all my discoveries were wiped and it said I discovered it on the 11th when I started on the 9th.. I check a few neighboring stars I discovered and their discovers were wiped.. So none of my named animals plants were ever saved. The system name and planet names were saved but everything elts was wiped. I’m kinda sad that after heading back that all that I discovered was never really saved except the system and planet names.. Edit:Thanks for the replies, seems like I have to re explore my starting system all over again! Thanks HG!


The post has received numerous replies with many even saying they have noticed the same thing on their games.
