Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.77 2019.06.22 Gmr Leon Unresolved

Description of bug: Across PS4 (base) and PC and every mode, in first-person view in a starship, the dashboard panel for one's own starship displays its name but not its model, as it did in previous versions of the game. Alongside this, in Explorer style starships, as well as Exotics which share the Explorer cockpit, the dashboard panel with the planet name and distance from the planet one is facing clips the first letter of the planet name on the panel readout.


Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.77 2019.06.22 Gmr Leon Unresolved

Description of bug: Across PS4 (base) and PC, as well both Normal/Survival/Creative Mode, in single-player, surface ruins occasionally do not render parts of the structure correctly, missing parts underlying the roof of towers, and sometimes lacking the plate beneath the plaque.


Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.77 2019.05.30 Multiple Travelers [1][2] Unresolved

Description of bug: Placing specialist terminals (e.g. Construction/Science/etc.) on a freighter causes base missions to provide incorrect guidance across unspecified platforms and modes. Reportedly having associations stuck to the original star system in which one placed the terminal, rendering them unusable.


Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.77 2019.05.30 Multiple Travelers [3][2] Unresolved

Description of bug: Both large and medium refiners built in freighter bases on Xbox One (base model?) and other unspecified platforms and modes, when playing solo, tend to lose deposited resources unless one stays on the same floor as them.


Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.77 2019.05.23 Multiple Travelers [1][4] Unresolved

Description of bug: When playing on PS4 in Normal Mode and using the Terrain Manipulator to dig tunnels, one may occasionally be pushed back to the surface if within the area of terrain manipulated.


Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.77 2019.05.16 Multiple Travelers [1][2][5] Unresolved

Description of bug: Artemis Path mission lost entirely at various progression points on PS4 (base?) and other unspecified platforms and modes, from as early as receiving initial transmission & the mission not being added to the mission log to being lost during later stages of the Artemis Path.

Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.52 2018.07.28 Gmr Leon Unresolved

Description of bug: When playing on PS4 (base) in Survival Mode & not in multiplayer, as one flies one's starship in first-person, one can't help but notice that the starship dashboard panel for targeted ships, or one's own ship, no longer displays a model of either starship. However, the holographic model of targeted starships still appears on the windshield of the starship. This is a minor bug, but made mildly annoying as this panel now flickers as if it's trying to work properly & render one's starship model.


Release Date Reported Reported by Status
1.51 2018.07.26 Gmr Leon Unresolved

Description of bug: When playing on PS4 (base) Survival Mode & in multiplayer with 2 other players, as one tries to find crashed starships near Distress Beacons via either Signal Booster or Transmission Tower scans, one finds that when a Distress Beacon is located & visited, more often than not the crashed starship is missing entirely. Alongside this, the Distress Beacon is instead repeating the very first Distress Beacon interaction from the beginning of the game.

Additional bugs[edit | edit source]

The following bugs may not be reported or require further research to make accurate descriptions:

  1. The "floating building" bug where the building (mostly experienced with Ruins) shifts its vertical position upwards. Temporarily this can be fixed with a game reload, so the building resets to its original position.
  2. An Abyss related bug where underwater buildings can appear above ground, even on planets that have no water.[6] A documented case is the Abyssal_Horror_(stationary) page where the creature is attached to a Sunken Building.
