  • Rail cannons, premium FCU, tier 2+3 enhancers, and professional yolol chips are now obtainable
  • Manual Welding
Moon Bases

moon_station.jpg moonbase.jpg
  • Added Moon Base Foundation in crafting that allows founding a Moon Base
  • Moon Bases function like any other type of Station, except:
    • The foundation is placed into ground of a moon
    • Shape of available expansions is two 5x5 floors, maximum areas remains at 30
    • Objects must be supported by Support Legs to be placed. Each Support Leg supports 9x9 basic modules area around it with infinite height. The support area of closest Support Leg is visualized when inside Build Mode
    • Moon bases have their own permission to enable mining inside the Safe Zone area
    • Build restriction for other stations is 100 meters from the Safe Zone border
    • Later, a degradation mechanic will be added where unsupported parts eventually destruct
Moon Mining


moonmining_best.jpg 20220503103047_1.jpg
  • Enabled moon mining for every moon. The surface of moons can be deformed by using pickaxe, mining laser or explosives
  • Breaking the surface collects surface material relative to the amount of deformation done
  • Oreveins have chance to spawn while mining, with various materials distributed into each moon
  • Elysium moon has craters with more rare and plentiful materials than the normal surface
  • Different materials can be found depending on the depth
Capital Ships


capital_ship_example.JPG Starbase_alpha2_capital8.jpg
  • Capital ship creation is now available. Capital ship devices and parts require alloys meaning alloy crafting should be established first.
  • Parts for Capital Ship are unlocked in the Advanced Tech Tree after which those are available in "Capital Ships" section of the Crafting Window.
  • Capital Ship Creation starts with building Capital Ship Dock at station where the construction of Capital Ship can begin. Dock has maximum size which limits how big Capital Ship can be at first, but the building and expanding can be continued after leaving the dock with the ship.
  • When Capital ship is ready for fast travel it can fast travel to destinations saved into Navigation Chips with Navigation Data Logger. Saved Navigation Chip are shown in Fast Travel Terminal as available fast travel destinations when having the chip in inventory. Navigation Data Logger is also unlocked in "Advanced Crafting Tree".
  • As first voyage it is highly recommended to save navigation chip near the station where Capital Ship Dock is located and travel to this location.
  • More information about capital ship construction can be found in Starbase Public Wiki: https://wiki.starbasegame.com/index.php?title=Capital_Ships
Heat Mechanics
  • Reworked how heat works on ships
  • Heat is a byproduct of the operation of many devices and machines, and must be dissipated to maintain peak efficiency. It is created primarily during the operation of generators and mounted weapons, and can be stored in a heatsink, dissipated with radiators, or (in the case of generators) rapidly nullified with coolant cells.
  • More info: https://wiki.starbasegame.com/index.php?title=Heat_mechanics
Manual Welding

manualweld.jpg
  • Manual welding allows any objects, not just beams/ship frames, to be attached to each other via weld blocks
  • Weld block behavior is similar to bolts creating a attachment between multiple objects
  • Large and small weld blocks are added to Welding Tool in Ship Designer
  • Weld blocks are considered as objects in building budget and consumes Bastium
  • LMB will place a weld block and RMB will remove it
  • Hand held Weld Tool has a new manual welding mode which can be toggled with "z" (default). While in manual welding mode you can switch between large and small weld block using mouse wheel
  • For material use weld bocks consumes Bastium which can be used from the two ore slots in backpack, from material crates via resource bridge connection or from station storage
Ship Blueprint Update
blueprint_update.jpg
  • Added a feature to allow each ship 3 save slots for different modifications
  • The window for the blueprint files opens by default with the Universal Tool when near a ship you're hosting, and can also be bound to a separate key
  • Operator access is enough to allow modifying ship blueprint files
  • One slot can be set to automatic save with 3 triggers configurable from Gameplay -> Ship Blueprint Autosave
  • Repair terminals and the blueprint filler feature can be used to restore ships to the form in these saved slots. The form at the time of purchase is also always available by activating the original blueprint slot
Inertial Measurement Devices

Starbase_IMU_devices_03_05_2022.jpeg
  • Added Speedometer
    • This device outputs the current speed it, or anything it is bolted to, is traveling at to a YOLOL field
  • Added Gyroscope
    • Reports device rotation over pitch, yaw and roll axes relative to the calibrated 0-point, in degrees
    • When placing the gyroscope on a ship, pay attention to its orientation. The arrows should point UP and FORWARD
    • Set the GyroCalibrate YOLOL field to 1 to calibrates current device rotation to 0 over each axis, once calibration is complete the field changes to 0 automatically
Ammo Containers

Starbase_ammo_containers.jpg
  • Added external ammo containers for ship mounted weapons
  • 7 standard magazines worth of ammo per container
  • The support bolts to ships, and the containers to the support, to ease reloading
  • Connect the support with pipes to your ships cannons
Station Reconstruction Machine

station_recon_machine.jpg

  • Added Station Reconstruction Machine to crafting
  • Must be connected to a supply conduit network producing electricity to charge and requires endokits
  • You can only have limited amount of Station Reconstruction Machines on any given station. The limit is 2 machines +1 more for each 4 size class of the station.
  • There is no limit to how many Station Reconstruction Machines you can be linked to at once, unlike with the ship version
  • Has range of 5000 KM
  • Machines can be renamed in insurance transfer menu to tell them apart
Hangar Halls

player_station_ssc_and_repair.jpg

  • Hangar halls can now be built on player stations, allowing you to use the Ship Designer and Repair Hall from player-made stations
Alloy Crafting

Alloyfurnace.jpg

  • Alloy Furnaces can be used to craft alloys out from various ores through Crafting Menu.
  • Alloy Furnace needs to be in correct type of asteroid belt or moon atmosphere to craft different alloy types.
  • The Furnace requires electricity to accumulate and hold Charges that are used when crafting alloys.
Recycler Tool

Recyclertool.jpg

  • Recycle Tool recycles items and parts into their original crafting materials. Recycling a part returns 75% of the original material amount.
  • Recycler Tool only works on spaceships owned by you, decommissioned spaceships, and detached parts. It does not work on spaceships owned by other players.
  • Point at the item or part you want to recycle and hold M1 to recycle it.
  • Requires Power Packs to function.
Grid Displays

grid_display_large.jpg

  • Grid displays are general-use information screens players can use YOLOL to display all sorts of information or symbols on, for a variety of reasons ranging from simple text readouts to complex data representations. Grid Displays can used by attaching them to a Control table
  • More info on the Starbase public wiki: https://wiki.starbasegame.com/index.php?title=Grid_Display
Universe Changes
  • Added Auction House to Moon City
  • Added new fast travel gate connection from Elysium Moon to the Eos asteroid belt, located around halfway between Moon City and Arma

How will ship shop updates work after this? I have a lot of ships I need to update thanks to the new manual welds.

How do i update blueprints that are exclusively designed in the editor? Been waiting on this feature patiently because the update makes all my enhancers invalid, i was counting on being able to update the blueprint in the editor where i made it and "repair" the copys i have in the game to the new updated blueprint, Is the only way to update them now to literally by hand ingame?

Am i missing something here? pls help

Since we - including the possible returning players - need to refit all our ships with heatsinks we need this:

-Every existing ship prior to the update those aren't stored in a dev station (like origin) receives a 1 time only free tow ticket no matter where or how far the ships are.
-Every existing ship prior to the update receives a 1 time only free reassembly ticket to reassemble the ship to a chosen blueprint. You only have to pay for extra parts if you don't have them of course. The ship must be fully repaired before being able to use the special reassembly ticket.

i had some discussions on that in #station-design on discord if you scroll a bit up, should help with getting those to work. Basically same as on capital ships.

just use https://sb-creators.org/. Stop wasting dev time updating player ships. In the long run the shops should be a building that players can craft on their own station and update the stock themselves.
But that doesn't work well if all we want is other player fly our creations for free. I have ships in the ship shop. I don't want to share my BP with everyone though, that ship shop suit my purpose. It is sad that they struggle to keep it updated. If devs don't have the time to do it why not let someone from outside the company do it?

That’s not what I’m asking, sorry about that. Let me be a little clearer.
I am trying to ask a question about how the recent news will affect the way Ship Shop Ships are updated. Since I almost essentially own one of the ship shops, I want to make sure my ships can work now. The biggest reason for this would be the addition of manual welds, which I’ve been waiting for approximately twenty-eight million four hundred twenty-five thousand and six hundred seconds to be added.

I would also love to say that this inquiry (see initial comment) was mainly addressed to the devs, however, I would also like to say that if another player knows anything I’d be happy to have their knowledge known to me.

Before I conclude mine own response, I would like to sayeth your whilst thy answer, 'r as some would speak, thy reply, wast most an answer, oh the woe, thy didst not prop'rly answer to mine own inquiry to the devs (also known as developers). I appreciate an attempt at assistance, and whilst thee has't valorous intentions, t'was ultimately not helpful. Thank thee, howev'r.

On a final note, mine Endoskeleton siblings, 01010111 01100101 11100010 10000000 10011001 01110010 01100101 00100000 01101110 01101111 00100000 01110011 01110100 01110010 01100001 01101110 01100111 01100101 01110010 01110011 00100000 01110100 01101111 00100000 01101100 01101111 01110110 01100101 00100000 01111001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01101011 01101110 01101111 01110111 00100000 01110100 01101000 01100101 00100000 01110010 01110101 01101100 01100101 01110011 00100000 01100001 01101110 01100100 00100000 01110011 01101111 00100000 01100100 01101111 00100000 01001001 00100000.
