    Starbase Closed Alpha questions & answers

    Starbase Closed Alpha Can I play Starbase now?! No. We are starting a "Closed Alpha", which means a closed (private) test of Starbase with a small group of users outside the development team. We will be expanding the amount of players in the Closed Alpha gradually over the course of the coming...

    Starbase Progress Notes: Week 14 (2020)

    Yes, in addition to reduced thrust the thruster exhaust also damages ship :)

    Production and Logistics

    Both ship hull modules, which are created from the single parts, as well as devices. Thrusters have something like four parts at the moment. Ship hull modules are fully user-created, ie. first they design a ship which can be built from modules and sub-modules, then setup a factory for those...

    Production and Logistics

    Yes, current proof of concept factory builds by assembling the parts to the correct place and then bolting them. Building tool version (the spray gun) is still under design. Entire ship building would require a lot of factory design and also ship designed for the purpose (ie. modular ship). We...

    Production and Logistics

    The metallurgy part of the crafting is still under design. However, we have a core system which supports infinite amount of materials and mixing them. Materials include both solid metals and gases for example. We have also a lot of material properties in place which support a complex system. We...

    Space Jelly, Thrusters, and Extreme evasion

    I think if this ever comes an issue we should be able to balance the game enough to counter the issue. Evasive tactic would most likely mean all thrusters and no armor to guarantee light weight, so for example a large area of effect weapon which is relatively weak would be very powerful against...

    Starbase Progress Notes: Week 42

    Starbase Progress Notes: Week 39

    The detonation signal from the fuse goes directly to the warhead instead of running through possible YOLOL chip on the torpedo. Parts on the torpedo are, in not correct order, Main thruster, Fuel tank, YOLOL chip slots, Warhead, Maneuver thruster, Transmitter, Fuse, Sensor. Not all parts are...

    Starbase Progress Notes: Week 39

    It's something like that :) Stations and lots have storage capacity, which is based on the size and structure of station or lot. That space is used to store safely ships and all other goods. For example storing propellants requires a propellant tank at the lot. The system is still under work...

    Some QOL clan/guild/faction management tools

    We are still designing the guild management system, but it's going to be a very ambitious one, and should deliver on most issues listed here :cool: We won't limit guild/faction sizes though (and in fact our tools will support very large guilds as well), but instead balance game other ways.

    Starbase in five years

    November this year marks 6 years of active development of Starbase. With our current development pace I'm confident we're out of early access in two years from it's start :) In the next five years the game has expanded exponentially and players have surprised us at least daily with their...

    30 Person Developer Battle

    Our goal with development is to leave all the best designs for players, and I think we have made pretty good job with that ;) The gunship had internal, protected, and separate aiming chairs, but we changed the tech with the turret chairs and had to revert to unsafe direct control chairs for...
