The game is not being worked on at all at this moment. From my understanding Lauri plans on having him and his team work on it in the future, but not till they start turning some profit with their other games. In a sense Starbase is temp on hold, but there still a future or so they say
I would like to have more information from the developers.
if I was sure that they would resume work on the game soon, then I would return to the game and at least make ships in the editor. but I don't log in to the game because I'm afraid of losing even more time if I spend time on the ship editor, and the game won't be developed
