There are several cosmetic options that players can adorn themselves with in No Man’s Sky, from simple color changes to entirely new armor pieces.
While the vast majority of No Man’s Sky playtime is spent for the average gamer scouring the galaxies, there’s no reason not to look good while doing it. Here’s a quick guide on how to customize the player’s character and unlock new cosmetic items.
At the beginning of the game, everyone starts with the basic astronaut-style space suit. However, after repairing their ship and reaching the first space station, they have immediate access to the Appearance Modifier, a terminal that allows for character customization. One can always be found next to the Exosuit Tech Vendor in each space station.
The Appearance Modifier allows players to change races, swap out premade suits and armor pieces, and change the colors of their exosuits and accessories, including capes and backpacks.
Unlock more cosmetic options
There are additional cosmetics locked behind paywalls or in-game activities. To unlock them, players must either purchase them from the Space Anomaly with Quicksilver, or complete the required quests or expeditions.
The Quicksilver vendor has several cosmetic armor pieces and helmets for sale. They are quite expensive, so players may need to complete some Nexus missions before purchasing any.
On the other hand, some cosmetic items like the Hood of Freedom’s Veil require a quest to be completed instead. Here are a few items and the missions players must complete to unlock them:
- Shroud of Freedom – Under a Rebel Star
- Fleet Commander’s Cloak – The Polestar Expedition
- Lost Bathysphere – Dreams from the Deep
It’s important to note that legacy Expeditions are not repeatable unless the developers make them available again through in-game events. The Polestar Expedition is currently active at press time, and players still have around four weeks until it is shelved like the others.
Expeditions are played in a separate save file with a different character, meaning players have to start over. However, the expedition rewards can be claimed at the space anomaly with the main save file.
