No Man’s Sky: How to Restore Save Files on Permadeath
A simple way of restoring game saves on permadeath
Why should i do this?
I know permadeath point is to have only one chance but sometimes life is unfair and random glitch can throw you randomly and kill you(my case) That is the reason why sometimes you want to cheat a little beat.
Finding save files
after you downloaded right file go to the [Drive]:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\HelloGames\NMS
if you can’t find the AppData simply open windows search bar and type %appdata%
Creating new save
In the NMS folder you should see files like this: st_416724891. Just create a new folder and name it st. Then inside this folder paste downloaded file and name it mf_save. Now when you boot up the game your save should be back! The game may be instable for few first hours of playing because of some missing files but it should dissapear after while.
