Reduced Mission Hints and Assists [EXO MECH UPDATE]

OVERVIEW

This mod introduces several mission based QoL changes.  It removes several annoying tutorial missions triggered by having certain items in your inventory (e.g. star charts, upgrade modules). 

Furthermore, missions no longer force a default inventory window; your inventory should now remember the tab it was on regardless of the mission you have selected.

Do not install this mod before you have read all the tutorials.

This is my first mod for NMS; please leave any feedback, suggestions, or bug reports in the comments.  Because a mod of this nature is somewhat tedious to test, I have not fully tested all of the missions I disabled; please let me know if I missed something.

INSTALLATION

TL;DR: Extract _notutorials.pak to your MODS directory.

As always, back up your save before installation! I'm not responsible for any lost items, corrupted saves, system crashes, or zombie apocalypses.

  1. Find your No Man's Sky mods directory:
    1. In Steam, right click No Man's Sky in your library, and click Manage->Browse Local Files.
    2. In the Explorer window that pops up, go to GAMEDATA->PCBANKS.
  2. Delete DISABLEMODS.TXT if you haven't already.
  3. Go to the MODS directory. If it doesn't exist, create it.
  4. From the downloaded .zip file, extract _notutorials.pak to the MODS directory.
  5. Launch your game; if you see a modded game warning, and can play your game, the installation has succeeded.  

KNOWN BUGS

The inventory always opens to the starship tab when piloting a starship, regardless of the selected tab when last closed.

It doesn't work for some questlines; investigating.
