November was a busy month both in the community and for us Frozenbyteans. Check out the Halloween wrap-up, which commemorates Starbase's first ever Halloween events!

We at Frozenbyte also said goodbye to the real-life version of our beloved Hypevan, and there was a small, virtual community sendoff for Hypevan here on the forums and in-game. Hypevan's legacy lives on in Starbase, however, and you can get your own from the ship shop at any time. Here's a compilation of the commemorations and space funerals for Hypevan! We sincerely thank you for each one. :)

Community Highlights

Kingdom citizens are arranging a Kingdom-focused Q&A event on the official Starbase Discord. The event takes place on December 12th 2020, 5pm (17:00) UTC, in #kingdom-chat. If you're not on our Discord yet, you can join here: http://discord.gg/starbase

You need to have the Kingdom role in order to access the channel - you can ask the CMs or the moderators if you're unsure how to get the role. Make sure to attend!

Fly me to the moon... easier said than done. Enjoy the devastating pull of gravity with PROGMPLAY in this cool footage of a mass-landing in one of the moons!

Still haven't had enough moon adventures? Come crash to Elysium with G8M8N8!

I gotta say, when I started making these time lapses, I never expected this much attention, I’m in the same boat as Xenocow! I can’t wait to start making more time lapses and showing off my police themed vessels!

Where did you get those fighters from, I wonder.
