Old instant miner went AWOL so I updated to the latest template to fix the description bugs, increased the power, and built in a rework of the smaller debris mod, this one being 1/10th the size and all models shrunk now, vs the other mod missing some resources.

This mod will cause many particles and debris to form instantly. The forced smaller debris helps cut down any lags I've encountered.

I also found and forced a white colour for the mining beam, or alternatively you can use the "_MOD_Frenchys.AtomicLaser-red" version for the railgun red colour. The muzzle colour has also been updated to match the beam colour for each mod.

The MW prefix is for MegaWatt, and is an instant-kill, instant mining laser as well.


If you have any of the above mods installed, or think you may have mods that contain dependencies that may conflict with my mod, delete them.

Navigate to your game installation folder. Typically:

C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonNo Man's SkyGAMEDATAPCBANKS

DELETE other mods or mods that conflict.

PASTE in _MOD.Frenchys.XXXX.pak

Go to:

C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonNo Man's SkyGAMEDATASHADERCACHE

DELETE all files. These are generated on startup and are just cache files for the system.

Launch the game. It may be slow or take longer than usual. This is fine and normal. It it loading and replacing many files within the regular game cache.

Performance Impact: LOW - MED

I implimented smaller debris for all resources to be 1/10th of their original size to help negate the spam of instant mining things.

It still can lag hard if you do too much at once.


  • Removed red mod option. Did not work properly as I thought. Use railshot+muzzle for a full red as depicted above.
  • Added 'subatomic' white beam only mod. Some people like the colour but don't want the cheats. Done.
  • No colour option for just instant mining and default mining color. Some guns change to orange and so on. Done.

The white mod works because changing the white shade does nothing, changing to red however, does not seem to work because the gun wants to change to green? Not sure tried 15 times now gave up. If you want red just install railshot mod and muzzle flash version. The additional mods are probably not even required as the mining speed is set to destroy at a hundredth of a second. Additional speed reduction mods probably won't even carry it down a decimal point. Enjoy!



None - Release
