No Man’s Sky recently dropped the major Atlas Rises expansion, which added new features like quick travel portals, multiplayer, and a much-expanded backstory. Unfortunately, the expansion also added a decent handful of bugs and issues, but developer Hello Games have been doing their best to stamp those out. The latest update adds the ability to teleport between stations, increases the number of paths that can be displayed on your galactic map, and fixes issues, including one that caused save files to bloat out of control.

Check out the patch notes for No Man’s Sky Update 1.34, below:

  • Fixed an issue where large numbers of portal visits would be added to save files, greatly increasing the save size and impeding the ability to save the game.
  • Prevented the terrain editor draining in charge when editing empty voxels

  • Altered teleporters in space stations to allow players to teleport directly to other stations as well as to their base
  • Improved ordering of icons on the galactic map to more accurately indicate missions and system information
  • Increased maximum number of paths which can be rendered in the galactic map
  • Improved appearance of the message displayed when your starship is out of range
  • Fixed warning symbol on broken tech appearing too small
