Introduction

When modders create mods, they create them for a specific game version. Obviously the current one when the mod was released, but not so much the current one a few months later.
So to be sure a mod is working, we have to check if the game version it was designed for is still the active one.
The matter is : No Man's Sky is updated quite often. In fact, some times very often.
But there's the public branch and the experimental branch and both could have different version.
And more annoyous : There's no game version displayed anywhere in the game!

Steam Build ID

To palliate to this issue, it was eventualy noticed that Steam was really giving unique ID to each and every game release, either for Public and Experimental branches.
So since quite some times now, modders are refering to game version by their Build ID. To know what's the Build ID of your game, you just need to right-click on it in Steam and chosse Properties. Them select the Local Files tab and look at the bottom of the panel and you will find the Build ID.
