Screenshot from No Man's Sky's LowFlight mod

If you've been playing No Man's Sky over the past two weeks you've most likely come to realize that you aren't really steering your ship as much as you are giving it suggestions on where to go. The most aggravating example of this problem is the inability to see where in the world you're landing, simply because the game's autopilot system instantly "corrects" you the moment you angle your ship downwards.

Thankfully, a modder by the name of Hytek has taken it upon himself to fix what the developers could not, with the end result being the absolutely amazing LowFlight mod. As you might expect from the name alone, it removes the annoying autopilot and allows you to fly as close to the ground as you wish, and top it all off, it also gives you the ability to fly through caves and even underwater!

Words cannot being to describe how much nicer the flying feels after installing this mod, so I will instead show you a video that Hytek himself prepared:


Do be warned, however, as the LowFlight mod will make piloting your ship an actual challenge since you will now be prone to crashes, collisions, and other such unpleasant events. Most importantly, try not to fly through caves before you've at least confirmed they are large enough to support such activities, or else you might just end up smashing your ship into bits and pieces... not that I would know anything about that...

If you would like to give the LowFlight mod a try, you can find it by heading over here. As for the installation itself, its literally as simple as copying one file, so don't worry if you're not an experienced modder. Have fun!
