Souskiou-Laona Excavation Project

Agata Dobosz, Matthew Dalton, Romesh Palamakumbura, Diane Bolger, Paul Croft, Eddie Peltenburg, Carole McCartney, John Dixon, Elizabeth Goring, Timothy Kinnaird, Janet Ridout-Sharpe, Kirsi Lorentz, Lindy Crewe & Charalambos Paraskeva
Twelve seasons of excavation at the settlement/cemetery site of Souskiou Laona in southwestern Cyprus by a team of archaeologists under the direction of the late Professor Edgar Peltenburg paint a very different picture of Chalcolithic life on the island than hitherto attested. While burial practices at other known sites of the period comprise single intramural inhumations in pit graves, only rarely equipped with artefacts, the extramural cemeteries at Souskiou consist of deep rock-cut tombs containing...

Onsifi (BotFodder's Base)

Andrew Reinhard
BotFodder's Base is unique in the old Galactic Hub of No Man's Sky because of being double-glitched. In the Pathfinder era, the player BotFodder2 snapped an image of his base suspended in mid-air, a rare occurrence pre-Atlas Rises. Once the update occurred in August 2017, the elevated base found itself perched atop a procedurally generated trading post populated by several NPC's. This new positioning, unique as far as the Galactic Hub is concerned, is much...

Nohash Patieme (Neptune Acquisitions Inc)

Andrew Reinhard
The settlement on Nohash Patieme, Neptune Acquisitions Inc, created in the Pathfinder era by player DudeofNeptune, is not in and of itself unusual, but the surrounding landscape is. Abandoned after the Atlas Rises update, the planet is now toxic. The base is an intact tower but nearby are two unclaimed central base units within brief walking distance, something almost never seen in other areas throughout No Man's Sky's universe. Upon arrival, the base was invisible...

Meridian (Meridian Village)

Andrew Reinhard
In the Pathfinder era, Meridian used to be a forested world hosting the Meridian Village Grand Prix race track. Now the planet is stripped of trees, its name has changed, and the Meridian Village player-base has relocated itself an hour's walk away, the original site buried and ringed by nine submerged communication stations. This is yet another example of a movable base in No Man's Sky with the original building site still marked by inscriptions....

Marvel (Mr McDillard's Pad)

Andrew Reinhard
Mr McDillard's Pad, the player base on what used to be called Marvel in the Pathfinder era (called Salatzeno-Ozy Arvire in Atlas Rises), occupies a commanding overlook onto the desert floor far below. It is the last base standing after the v1.3 update, completely abandoned and also completely intact. Two generic base units are elsewhere on the planet, marked with communications stations. It remains unclear (at least to me) where the other two bases went,...

Langley_83_Alpha (Gemini Outpost)

Andrew Reinhard
Gemini Outpost on the planet Langley_83_Alpha (the name changed to Molshoy Hutoud in the Atlas Rises cataclysm) was created in the Pathfinder era by player SirDannyMacFinn. What remains is a classic set of ruins, which were abandoned by its creator, creating a textbook site for seeing the aftereffects of a major No Man's Sky software update. Atlas Rises not only buried the settlement under a hillside, but changed the climate and landscape from temperate and...
