Abundance (Abundance H.Q.)

Abundance H.Q. was the 3rd base investigated by Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project. It is noteworthy for being the first glitched base to be documented levitating above the Atlas Rises-era planet's topography. Communication stations are both buried under bedrock out of reach, in topsoil, and suspended 5-20m above ground-level. The settlement is also the first to be documented relocating and rebuilding itself after player interference. The published site report was read by the base's architect, himshieland, who was able to add to the history of Abundance, complementing the archaeological record. The base was also temporarily missing because of a nearby squatter, something made possible by game mechanics in an early iteration of the Atlas Rises update.
