If you meet your end in space, you can get started once again on the surface of the planet that is nearest to your crashed ship. Another mode that has been newly added to No Man’s Sky is photo mode. This mode helps you to record your journey as you progress with the game. You can pause the game to alter the time of the day to suit your lighting requirements and also make modifications to the fog density and cloud layers.
