4K Screenshot Graphical Comparison

 

When looking at all of these screenshots it is difficult to find any noteworthy visual differences. The largest difference is by far when it comes to shadow quality, particularly when it comes to the shadows from trees and other environmental objects. 

In terms of details very little changes, with the only major difference being then the large floating rock in the distance. When it comes to objects that are "drawn in" there is no difference between min and max settings, everything draws in at the same distance regardless of settings. 

All in all the graphical settings does little to change the world, just how it is dressed. The higher settings will give you high resolution shadows and textures, though little else will change.

Again we can see that very little changes, with the only major changes again being in the game's shadows, particularly when looking at the shadows of trees and the cliffside that the player is standing on. 

The game's draw distance does not change with graphical settings, which is a basic option that would really help those who use lower end systems. High-end PC gamers would also appreciate the ability to increase the draw distance, even if it is just for taking screenshots.

I've played around 20 hours on the game so far and to be honest it's fun for a while but as there's no real goal other than maxing out your inventory and finding a ship with a big inventory, It starts to feel quite empty.Quote

So far, I have only experience one drop in FPS but a game restart solved this. No further issues since.

I really do not like the space combat, it is horrible and pointless, you will die a lot. 3 vs me = death!Quote

am about 30hours in, just at the 3rd system so far, really enjoying just pondering about, dont have any issues running the game itself, but i can do little else at the same time, running 1080 with med/high settings im hitting like 95-100% util on my i7 2600, so i just limited affinity to 6 cores and still hitting like 45-50fps, but can actually watch a stream at the same time. while not the ideal situation, is ok for now, till some stuff gets worked on. 3 systems down eleventy maj-bilillion to go Quote

Please note that I am aware of the newly released experimental Beta patch for No Man's Sky.

Sadly I will not be able to test this new patch today as I am in my hometown today and will be attending a funeral of a close family friend. I will test this new beta patch as soon as I am able.Quote

It's Elite without the fun. It's the grind of Minecraft/MMOs without the goal. The fact the performance is shocking only adds to my belief that this really isn't for me. I'm happy meandering about, but some kind of goal, even a nebulous (ha) one would be nice.Quote
