The Galactic Hub Project is a civilized space community.

Summary

Official flag of the Galactic Hub.
Official in-game flag of the Galactic Hub, registered with the Federation Vexillology Department.

The Galactic Hub Project, generally referred to just as the Galactic Hub, is the largest and oldest active civilization in No Man's Sky. The core focus of the Galactic Hub is exploration and documentation, but the civilization also offers extensive multiplayer support, economic interactions, competitive PVP events, player-made content such as bases, and more. Members of the Galactic Hub are known as Interlopers, an adoption of possibly-insulting, often-used Vy'keen terminology.

The Galactic Hub officially occupies 11 regions: The Arm of Vezitinen and 10 surrounding regions. Inside these 11 regions, Galactic Hub Naming Guidelines are considered mandatory. Individual players and sovereign civilizations also occupy the space around the Galactic Hub, known as the Hubble Zone (which includes the "Huburbs").

The Galactic Hub's main website is the Galactic Hub subreddit (or "Hubreddit"). See the "Hub Links & 3rd-Party Tools" section for more official Galactic Hub websites.

Interloper Census

Upon reaching the Galactic Hub, the first thing you should do is sign up for the Interloper Census, for the following reasons:

  • Gives the Galactic Hub staff an accurate idea of the size of the civilization.
  • Allows other players to more easily locate your home base(s), and what game mode it's on.
  • Allows people to check which platform you're on (can be useful if you post something on the Subreddit, for example, and they're wondering if it's on PC, PS4 or Xbox).

The Galactic Hub Census routinely reaches hundreds of registered members and is reset with each major update (ie Atlas Rises, Beyond, and Origins).

Benefits

  • Documentation - Clearly locate desirable ships, multi-tools, freighters, and technology; fascinating flora and fauna; useful resources; and much more. Contribute with the knowledge that you're part of a semi-scientific community and helping other Interlopers.
  • Multiplayer Elements - As the largest civilization in Euclid, the Galactic Hub is the #1 location for multiplayer interactions, whether that means seeing other players, player bases, a variety of Communications Stations, or just frequently coming across discovered systems. Production Bases / Farms allow players easy access to valuable and/or useful resources. Various multiplayer events are also hosted in the Galactic Hub, from parties to gladiator-like PVP tournaments to exocraft/starship races.
  • Economy - The Galactic Hub's Discord has a "#Trades-and-Services" channel where players can request help from specific Service Roles. For example, you might request a Construction Worker to bring you large quantities of Carbon and Ferrite, or you may want to call a HUber Transport to quickly let you access a location which is too distant or which you have difficulty finding. Players can register with a certain Service Role so they will be notified when they're needed. Services can be paid for in Units (via valuable items like Stasis Devices or Fusion Ignitors), Nanites (via Modules), various forms of barter, or unpaid (at the Service Person's discretion).
  • Community - The community extends beyond the in-game multiplayer elements. Our community has created over 1,000 wiki pages, has 38,000+ Subreddit subscribers, a variety of resources (see "Hub Links & 3rd Party Tools" section), and even a Redbubble shop for Galactic Hub merchandise. More importantly than just the features, the Galactic Hub community are friendly, often very experienced Interlopers. We ask that new players do some basic research, but we're always willing to help anyone who needs it.

Naming Convention

The Galactic Hub uses a specific convention when naming solar systems, the Galactic Hub Naming Guidelines. These guidelines require that solar system names have 3 parts:

  • HUBn - The "HUB" part lets people know they're in the Galactic Hub, and the "n" represents the Region Number, from 1 - 11.
  • Solar Index Value / ### - The Solar Index Value (SIV) is the last part of a coordinate string from a Signal Booster. Each SIV appears only once per region and stays the same across updates (so far).

These two parts are combined in brackets as [HUBn-###], which functions like an abbreviated coordinate string (the region number represents the first 3 parts of a coordinate string, and the SIV represents the last part). This forms a "Hub Tag."

  • (Optional) Custom Name - Custom names, or the original procedurally-generated name, should be placed after the Hub Tag.

As Hub Tags are invaluable for navigation - they make it fairly easy to remember and repost entire coordinate strings - they are considered mandatory. Players who prefer not to use Galactic Hub Naming Guidelines should only upload systems outside the Galactic Hub's 11 regions. No naming guidelines are enforced in the Huburbs / Hubble Zone outside of the 11 Hub regions.

Regions Occupied

Map of the Galactic Hub's regions by UniDestiny. The 9 regions in the middle share the same horizontal plane, with 1 region above and 1 below HUB1 / the Arm of Vezitinen.

The Galactic Hub officially occupies the following 11 regions, as well as a number of "Huburb" regions in an unofficial capacity.

  • HUB1 (Arm of Vezitinen) is the core of the Hub, and can be thought of as "downtown Galactic Hub." This region has the densest concentration of discoveries and bases.
  • HUB10 (Savenix Instability) is the Embassy Region. Other civilizations should base their Embassies in this region, as close to the Black Hole as possible.
  • HUB11 (Nonlopsi Instability) is the Production Region. Interlopers constructing Crop Farms, Gas Refineries, Mining Bases, or bases which otherwise exist primarily to provide items/resources should build them in this region.

Hub Links & 3rd-Party Tools

  • Console-native Communities: PlayStation Community - Search "NoMan'sSky Galactic Hub"; XBox Club - Search "NMS Galactic Hub Project" (public club)
  • GH Discord allows Hub players to easily chat in a less "structured" environment than the Subreddit, and is better suited to multiplayer interactions (such as Service requests).
  • Redbubble Shop gives enthusiastic interlopers a place to purchase (real-life) Hub merchandise. Note that this doesn't include metallic Galactic Hub pins, which are produced in limited quantities.

For "coordinates," include Signal Booster coordinates for systems and planets, and both Signal Booster & Visor Latitude/Longitude coordinates for planetary locations. For "image," include an image of whatever makes the location notable.

Colonies

Colonies are systems (or often smaller areas, such as a single planet or even a single island) where multiple players have created bases. The Galactic Hub's largest colonies are official colonies - colonies officially sponsored by the Hub staff - but a number of smaller, unofficial colonies also exist. Any Hub citizen is welcome to start their own colony.

Production Colonies

Production Colonies are similar to standard Colonies in that they are localized gatherings of multiple bases. While standard Colonies are focused on a sense of community, showing off your building skills, and visiting neighbors' bases, Production Colonies are focused on extracting resources from planets in a cooperative fashion.

Multiplayer Content Overview

Colonies

Colonies are localized settlements of multiple player bases. Colonies may occupy a single island, a single solar system, or any amount of space in-between. Some colonies are "free-form" where any players may join and build at whatever location they'd like, others have designated landmasses to build on, and others still have coordinated settlement maps where players must settle at specific planetary coordinates.

See Colonies section for more info.

Services

Services are the jobs / careers of the Galactic Hub civilization. Services serve two primary functions: to allow players to request help in a direct way from other players, and to allow players who respond to those requests to be rewarded/paid. Services are conducted through the "#Trades-and-Services" channel of the Galactic Hub Discord.

The process of requesting a Service is as follows:

  • Enter the "#Trades-and-Services" channel of the Galactic Hub Discord.
  • Begin your message with a ping/tag for the Service Role which you need assistance from. For example, if you needed a HUber Transport, you would start your message with "@HUber Captain".
  • In the rest of your message, explain the details of what service you need. Always include your Game Mode. Always include your location (via Signal Booster coordinates and/or Portal glyphs) if location is relevant.
  • Wait for a Service Person to reply to your request. They will ping/tag you directly.
  • Work out the details (including payment details) with the Service Person. Once an agreement is reached, proceed with the Service as requested.


List of Services

  • Architect - Architects can construct bases for you, either by joining your party or (on PS4) via Share Play. Architects may also offer input or renovations on existing bases. Architects are tasked primarily with the structure of a base; see the "Interior Designer" role for a greater focus on furniture, etc.
  • Construction Material Supplier - Construction Material Suppliers supply large quantities of Carbon and Ferrite, and may or may not offer additional construction supplies as well. Although they may be willing to help with projects, a Construction Material Supplier's main service is offering resources, not helping to build a base.
  • Electrician - Similar to an Architect, an Electrician can help you construct your base but with a specific focus on wiring, whether it be wiring complex mechanisms or just running the wires so they're as invisible as possible.
  • Financial Agent - Financial Agents have a straightforward job: you give them money, and they turn it into more money by using it to craft products, etc. They profit by keeping some of the money they earn, or may request other forms of payment such as barter.
  • Fuel Delivery - Fuel Deliverers operate primarily in Survival and Permadeath, bringing Starship Launch Fuel to players who find themselves effectively trapped by storms or other conditions.
  • HUber Captain - HUber Captains are tasked primarily with moving players to the Hub by use of the "Join Party" function, and with moving players around the Galactic Hub (and Hubble Zone in general) with their freighters and navigation skill. If you need to reach a specific location, or need help getting to the Galactic Hub, just call a HUber.
  • Interior Designer - Interior Designers focus on the placement of furniture, decals, lights, and other objects within the interior spaces of a base (as well as "lawn/patio furniture" and similar focuses). Like Architects, they can help you build a base from the start or renovate/offer input on an existing base, and work either through the party function or Share Play.
  • Investor - Investors offer start-up money for other businesses, and are unique in that they may accept (or even require) a percentage of your businesses's earnings in the future rather than more standard payment methods.

If you can think of a Service role which is not currently supported, please suggest it to 7101334. Not all suggestions will be applied, but they will all be discussed by the Council.

How to Register for / Retire from a Service Role

Services are handled through the Galactic Hub Discord. After joining the Discord, navigate to the "#bots" channel, and post the command associated with the role (from the list below) in the chat. Your role will automatically be assigned, and you will be notified whenever someone posts in the "#trades-and-services" channel requesting help from your role. You may sign up for multiple roles.

Commands: !architect !construction !designer !electrician !financial !fuel !huber !investor !merchant

If you want to retire from a Service, ask any Discord Moderator (Sentinel) to remove your role.

Payment Methods

Service may be paid for in a variety of ways.

  • Units Units.png: Players can pay with Units indirectly by transferring items of appropriate value. For example, for a lower-value trade you might transfer a Larval Core, while for a more high-value trade, you might transfer 25 Stasis Devices. The "exchange value" of any items traded for this purpose is always the Galactic Average displayed in the pause menu - the local prices of Space Stations / Trade Posts are irrelevant, whether higher or lower.
  • Nanites: Players can pay with Nanites indirectly by transferring modules of appropriate value. A lower-value trade might see a B-Class Module traded, while a high-value trade could see 5 S-Class Modules transferred as payment. Platinum, Hadal Cores, and other items/resources can also be refined into Nanites. The "exchange value" of any items traded for this purpose is always the value at the space station where the trade was conducted, as a Galactic Average value is not displayed for Nanites.
  • Barter: Players can pay with items meant more for crafting, construction, technology, or other purposes besides indirect transfer of Units/Nanites.
  • Service: Some Service People may accept, or even request/require, other Services as payment. For example, an Investor might offer to invest 300 million Units.png in your business if you work as a Construction Material Supplier for them for 4 gameplay sessions.

Fraud

Individuals who are determined to have intentionally defrauded other players will be banned from participating in any Services, and may be banned from the Hub if they haven't contributed much to the community.

Competitive Events

See the Star League section.

Government & Civilized Space Interactions

Government Structure

The Galactic Hub is directed primarily by Founder / Director 7101334, who is advised by the Galactic Hub Council. Euclid Director AndyKrycek6 acts as second in command, followed by Security Director MrJordanMurphy. Post-Euclid Directors (leaders of Galactic Hub Hilbert, Calypso, Budullangr, & Eissentam) have near-complete authority over their civilizations, with some exceptions such as coordinates, naming guidelines, use of subreddit/wiki, and emblem. Individual organizations are technically overseen by 7101334 but, in practice, mostly autonomous after they are established.

The Galactic Hub is not interested in hostile interactions with other civilizations ('wars').

Alliances

Emblem for the Federation.

(Refer to Civilized space page for more info)

United Federation of Travelers

The Galactic Hub is a founding member of the United Federation of Travelers alliance, a longstanding alliance of most of No Man's Sky's largest civilizations. Since the Federation was established, the Galactic Hub's Ambassadors have been some of the more active participants. Through the Federation, the Hub has expanded ties with groups like the Alliance of Galactic Travellers and Cafe 42, two of the other largest civilizations in-game.

Hubble Cooperative

The Hubble Cooperative is a non-binding, ungoverned alliance of civilizations within the Hubble Zone: 1-2 maximum freighter warps (about 5,000-6,000ly) of the Galactic Hub's core region. The purpose of the Hubble Cooperative is to encourage as many sovereign civilizations to exist within close proximity as possible, with the goal of mutually increased traffic and easier access to inter-civilizational discoveries.

The Galactic Hub, AGT, and Cafe 42, the three largest civilizations in the game, are all based in or very close to this zone.

Benefits of Alliance

The Galactic Hub extends certain benefits to civilizations which are either Federation members or located in the Hubble Zone:

  • Economic Assistance - Your civilizations' leaders can request economic assistance from the Galactic Hub as needed.
  • Embassy Construction - A Galactic Hub architect will create an embassy base and (if desired/applicable) claim an embassy system within your space. Embassies provide a show of support and respect from the Galactic Hub, as well as providing a point of interest for travelers.

Chapters

"Chapters" are official organizations within the Galactic Hub which perform a specific function designed to benefit the community.

GH Defense Force (GHDF)

The Galactic Hub Defense Force (GHDF) is a GH chapter dedicated to policing the Galactic Hub, maintaining peace outside the Hub as appropriate (particularly during weekend events and at crucial update sites like the Living Ship planet), and occasionally intelligence gathering or other military applications. Lead by Head Security Officer MrJordanMurphy, the GHDF has gained both widespread fame among the legitimate community and infamy among trolls and would-be disruptors. GHDF Officers have official uniforms, training events, private communications channels, and more to facilitate their peacekeeping mission.

GHDF membership is strict. Generally, only well-established members of the Galactic Hub community are accepted as Officers. 450+ have applied but only ~110 have been accepted.

(Note that the GHDF and Galactic Hub Security Office are distinct and separate organizations, although there is collaboration.)

GH Exobiology Corps (GHEC)

The Galactic Hub Exobiology Corps (GHEC) is a GH chapter dedicated to exploration, discovery, and documentation of fauna, with a particular focus on rare species within the Galactic Hub's borders. Lead by Chief Research Officer Phaedrus29, the GHEC has already thoroughly documented many species and furthered scientific understanding of fauna in general (such as with this post on r/NMS_Academia).

GH Geological Surveyors (GHGS)

The Galactic Hub Geological Surveyors (GHGS) is a GH chapter dedicated to locating S or A-class hotspots, mineral deposits, and gas clouds within the Galactic Hub. Lead by LtGing, THE_PILOT_HAZE, and AkimaPrime, their work will be of direct and immediate benefit to the formation of new mining sites, colonies, individual player bases, and more.

GH Ship Hunters (GHSH)

The Galactic Hub Ship Hunters (GHSH) is a GH chapter dedicated to exploration, discovery, and documentation of starships, freighters and multitools. Lead by Brigantine ApexFatality, the GHSH continues a longstanding tradition in the Galactic Hub of locating and documenting desirable possessions for other players. In this, they are the successors to one of the oldest benefits of the Galactic Hub, one which predates any sort of "conventional" multiplayer features.

GH Star League

The Galactic Hub Star League (or just Star League for short) is the competitive simulation sports organization sponsored by the Galactic Hub, lead by Kaboom443. "Simulation Sports" is the umbrella category for any form of live-multiplayer or time-trial-based competitive event in No Man's Sky, such as mutually-agreed-upon player-versus-player (PVP) battles, exocraft racing, on-foot racing, starship battles, and many other possible events. Star League events are hosted in Normal mode on all platforms.

Canon References

The Galactic Hub has been referenced by actual in-game content, and was also a part of the Waking Titan ARG. That means the Galactic Hub is canon in the NMS universe!

History & Press References

See Timeline - Galactic Hub.

Staff

While all Interlopers contribute to the Galactic Hub with their presence alone, some members have stepped up to take on specific tasks and/or fill specific roles within the Galactic Hub's structured leadership.

Platform & Galaxy Directors

Galaxy Directors in the Galactic Hub are the main points of authority within a galaxy, making the "final calls" for that galaxy's Galactic Hub. Post-Euclid Directors are generally limited only in civilization location, emblem, and naming guidelines.

Platform Directors coordinate operations across an entire platform (PS4, PC, XBox).
