I know I could play offline, but is there any reason for a single player to update from 1.77 to 1.77_MP? And only out of curiosity: am I the only one who don't like MP? Sometime I feel very alien, because everybody is talking about MP.
I allowed the MP update but turned most of the settings to OFF or FRIENDS ONLY or similar.
I enjoy a session of MP, nowadays the original Battlefield 1942 because it's just a simple, fun FPS (and the admins on the server keep it in bounds and fun).
Not really my thing for NMS, though. I think it may be interesting during the Community Events or if we ever have a GoG virtual meet-up on some strange planet.
