I am too confused right now


Hello fellow Travellers and Explorers!

I recently got in the posession of this beautiful game finally, and have accumulated now 40 hours of playtime. I know it is not much, but keep in mind that I am a working man that can’t play every day.

I love this game so far, the mystery behind it and all the exploring ^~^.

A few days ago I came across this forum here, and now I wanted to sign up to become a part of this wonderful community.

But now I need your help guys!
This morning i found a [CENSORED] Planet, it is a absolute stunning place, so strange and beautiful
I flew around and i saw this: A giant moving “portal” gateway, i flew trough it but nothing happened.
Is this an upcomming feature guys? It is the first time of coming across something like that!

I will upload some screenies when i have figured out how to get them from the ps4 to my phone.

Edit: screenie

The giant circular structures have terminals at their bases that you can interact with for a bit of lore…that’s all they do…they’re not intended to be portals or gates that take you anywhere.


Hello dear Traveller!

Thank you very much for the explanation, I was freaking out haha!

Portals look like this:

But if you’ve only got 40 hours in the game, I suspect there’s a lot more you need to do before you can use them :grinning:.


Well… that’s for now. Knowing Team Mercury, in an update or two, they could be more than a wonder from a previous age. I must admit they fascinate me, and I’m hoping something more is lurking in those mysterious frames.


Hello fellow Traveller!

Yes indeed there is alot to do for me, like a lot but I very like the fact that I still get surprised.

Today I passed my first black hole by the way!

Speculation is rife at moment as to their nature. Popular theories are that they are portals for ships leading either to other planets or even as a way of transcending different galaxies, even visiting previous ones.

Welcome to the boards @Traveller101, looking forward to seeing your discoveries!


Thank you alot!
This is by far the most exciting day in No Man’s Sky so far for me, I have travelled trough six black holes, got a new ship, a new gun, and made alot of pictures!

This picture is amazing, i tried to frame the moment, the black hole begins to pull you in, and i succeeded!

Your welcome :blush: You said your on PS4, what game mode do you play?


Hello there!

I am playing on normal mode currently and I don’t think I will change it, because its pretty decent on normal :slight_smile:

You know, even after hundreds hours of playing you’ll still be surprised :slight_smile: So much things to discover…

Oh, and welcome Citizen :wink:


Welcome and enjoy! It just gets better!


I’m PS4 Normal too. Might see in space sometime :sunglasses:


Welcome, new Citizen Scientist! (From one Travelxxx to another.) :grinning:

I have been playing nearly 1000 hours and have yet to see one of these exotic beauties. :jealousinagoodway:


Hello fellow travellers!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I have very enjoyed being a part of this community so far!
I think I may have been lucky on that though! It was too soon for me to find such a thing!

Belated welcome Traveller, see you in the simulation :slight_smile:
