Everyone who plays or played No Man’s Sky knows the wide variety of stuff you can build in the game. Some can even go as far as where the players’ imagination takes them. One such example is the HypnoSphere. Compare to other prefabricated structures in the game, the HypnoSphere is actually a custom-built one.
The idea is to stack certain buildings side by side with each other to create this hypnotizing architecture that will surely make your base look unique and interesting. Let’s find out how you can build this one.
How to Build the HypnoSphere in No Man’s Sky
The building process can be complicated, but as long as you follow the steps mentioned below, you should be able to create your very own HypnoSphere. Here are the steps you have to follow:
First off, start by building a glass floor so that it will be a lot easier to see what’s happening as you build. This will also allow you to spot any mistakes that you might have overlooked otherwise.
Once then, head over to the Build Menu and select the Short-Range teleporter. Go the to bottom of the floor and toggle to Free Placement. Place the teleporter, and after that, you’ll notice that it’s actually merging with the floor when placed this way. This will serve as the foundation for the entire building process.
Remain in your position and wait a second until you see that a new green Short-Range teleporter will appear in the same spot. What you want to do is rotate it a few degrees and place it again. You’ll want to repeat this process again and again until you create your ideal structure. Take note, however, that this is NOT the exact means of building the HypnoSphere. We’re only going through the basics as this will be essential when we actually get to the building part.
Now that you know structures can be merged alongside each other, let’s now get to building a HypnoSphere. For this, you’ll want to use the Planetary Globe which you can find in the building menu. Then, make sure to aim your cursor to the center as much as possible, and then place the structure.
What you’ll have to do next is to cycle the axis since you’ll want to rotate the structure vertically instead of horizontally. To do this, simply press Left Shift to show the axis which points to the direction where you should rotate. Keep in mind that there’s currently a bug in the game that will show you all the axes. However, just ignore that and just keep in mind that the first axis you used will be the one you should be building on for the rotation.
Then, follow step #3 and rotate each Planetary Globe structure until it makes a full circle. Once done, you’ll notice that the rotating parts aren’t in sync with each other. What you have to do is save the game and reload.
After reloading, you’ll now notice that all rotating parts are now properly synchronized.
You can then just remove the glass floor once you’re done, and voila! You now have your own HypnoSphere.
Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
