Thank you, yes. In final frustration I did just that, losing over 6 hours of progress. And that at least got me unstuck. Played for an hour more with no problems.
I seem to remember another time when this happened after a big update. IIRC, it was due to doing too many saves just jumping out of the ship and back in again (auto save?–I can never remember which is which).
Seeing as how my save at a building post (manual save?) was six hours previously, I did a whole lot of the jumping ship saves --six hours worth, and without logging out of the game once during that time.
NOTE: I also, during the trying to fix it stage, tried a number of times to reset the graphics to the lowest template, hit apply, got the message to log out to make it stick, logged out, logged back in, went through the loooooong loading, only to find that the changes didn’t save.
I don’t usually jump in right after a game has a huge update like this. I usually wait until the inevitable bugs get sorted a bit, but I love my NMS so can’t resist.
Ah! I had also recently uploaded my base. Well now I don’t have one, so…
I get the tutorial popup for installing modules every minute or so, buying one and installing when that happens does not fix. Restart does not fix. I have no uninstalled modules in my inventory.
No hud does circumvent the problem, but not ideal for me
Edit: possible workaround (worked for me) Check all inventories of everything - vaults, freighter, ships and all exocraft. Delete or install any modules - I deleted

Nexus Glitch - allowed me to somehow leave the gameplay area and enter the superstructure, until I fell through - I could float and navigate with the controls as if I was flying but this was without using the jetpack even though the jetpack appears active. eventually there is a “gap” in the structure boundary which allows me to fall into space, I recovered once, but on another attempt to re-enter the gameplay area I could not [see video].

After extended period of walking around noticed minor lag. Recognised this as an indicator of a impending crash. Instead of calling ship to create restore point let it go to see if it would…
Crash to blue screen (as expected )
Had a bad crash. The entire game crashed.
I had selected a multiplay mission from the NEXUS to hunt pirates.
Decided to just fly out solo. Left the NEXUS. Pressed C to alert my position. Then accidently got caught in the ‘tractor beam’ of the NEXUS and was dragged kicking and screaming back to the landing pad. The NEXUS was empty of ships and players.
The mission I had selected seemed active still,so immediately left the NEXUS and exited into empty Space with meteorites. Empty. Just me suffocating floating in space in first person. No graphic of the shp and no time to figure out what was going on before I died. Screen was bathed in blood red and the game crashed and froze.
Could we please put in the top post, a link on where to find the Steam AppData Local Temp files that contain crash data. I forget how to find that every single time. Very frustrating as there is no clear path to it for me…I always have to call in help.
