An activated Korvax Plaque on Dwilope Aabias

A Plaque is one type of relic, procedurally generated in No Man's Sky

Summary[edit | edit source]

A plaque on a desert planet.

The Plaque is one of the various Points of Interest on planets. They are one of the relics made by sentient alien species.

Contents[edit | edit source]

The plaques contain information about the species that created them (i.e. the dominant species of the current star system), and can be categorized as follows:

Interaction[edit | edit source]

Each Plaque has a circular or pyramidic cavity placed in the side of the obelisk structure. Upon player interaction, a portion of the faction's lore will be revealed. Players are then given a choice between two mutually-exclusive options: "Seek help with language" or "Seek knowledge of the past".

  • Choosing to seek help with language will teach the player a word of the dominant lifeform and raise their standing with the lifeform's faction.
  • Choosing to seek knowledge of the past will reveal the location of an Ancient Ruin where the player can dig for a valuable Artifact buried underneath the surface.

The lore is continuous for each species; it will continue at the point where the lifeform's last lore had been revealed.

Locating[edit | edit source]

Plaques can be found using the "Scan for Artifacts" option of a Signal Booster.
