About this mod

Increases inventory stack sizes in Survival/Permadeath mode to reasonable levels while retaining a difference to Vanilla Normal mode.

Also includes a version with ridiculous stack sizes that someone else requested.

Motivation


I wanted to play Survival mode for the additional challenge, not for the extra hassle in inventory management, so I increased stack sizes to what I feel are reasonable levels.

And today someone asked for a blanket stack size increase, so I'm throwing in a second (mutually exclusive) file that increases stack sizes in both modes to ridiculous levels.

NEW June 18, 2021: Added a version that moderately increases the maximum number of Tech slots in your Exosuit (from 7x2=14 up to 8x3=24). Other than that, it is the same as the Main File.


Features: Main File

Stack sizes are increased to reasonable values. The values in the following list refer to Exosuit Inventory - Exosuit High Capacity - Ship - Freighter - Storage. "Substance" refers to stuff like Carbon and Ferrite Dust, "Product" to stuff like Glass or Metal Plating (with Glass and similar being the reference point because Metal Plating and some other products seem to take up only half as much space as Glass).

  1. NORMAL MODE:
  2. - Increases Substance stack sizes from 9999 to 10000 because I find that uneven number infuriating.
    - New Product stack sizes: 5 - 10 - 10 - 20 - 40, so that Ship inventory slots can now hold as much as High Capacity slots.
  3. SURVIVAL / PERMADEATH MODE:
  4. - Increases Substance stack sizes to 1000 - 2000 - 3000 - 6000 - 10000
    - Product stack sizes: 5 - 10 - 10 - 20 - 40



Features: Cheat File

I made this on request, so why not upload it as well? This file includes identical stack sizes for Normal and Survival / Permadeath mode.
  • Substance Stack Sizes: 50,000 - 100,000 - 100,000 - 250,000 - 250,000
  • Product Stack Sizes: 50 - 100 - 100 - 200 - 200


Technical Stuff

This mod edits two files:
  • METADATA/GAMESTATE/DEFAULTINVENTORYBALANCE.MBIN
  • METADATA/GAMESTATE/DEFAULTINVENTORYBALANCESURVIVAL.MBIN

I have not bothered to pack separate versions for both game modes. If you want to play with the mod on in one mode and off in the other, you'll have to add and remove the .pak file as needed.


Installation

1) Download ZIP file.
2) Extract ZIP file.
3) Place .pak file in your /steamapps/common/No Man's Sky/GAMEDATA/PCBANKS/MODS folder. If it doesn't exist, create the folder first.
4) If not done already, rename /GAMEDATA/PCBANKS/ENABLEMODS.txt to something else so the game will actually activate mods in the MODS folder.
5) Profit!!!

The Readme file contains a more specific overview of the changes I've made, but it is in no way necessary for the mod to work. All that matters is the .pak file.
