Actually with a few mods u can turn NMS into quite a survival sandbox. I have the lowflight/hover, denser forests, less bases, remove.icons, deep space, harsher conditions mods running. I dont want freighters/multiplayer or bases on every planet. Animals should be rare sightings as well. oh, and i put SweetFX on it as well to add some filmgrain...gives it a grittier look...less cartoonish.
