WildStar lets players build their own spaceships with the Space Chase event

Attention, WildStar players: It is time for you to build a ship. It will be time, anyway, as soon as you wind up jumping into the game’s Space Chase event running from December 9th to December 18th. The downside is that said ship will not allow you to go flying around the universe, but the upside is that you will be able to make a totally new and awesome ship on your housing plot to your personal specifications. Is there anything better?

No. There definitely is not.

The event requires characters to run shiphand missions at an appropriate level to gain currency, which can in turn be exchanged for another currency to purchase ship parts. (You can also just buy the currency for ship parts directly from the cash shop if you don’t want to go into shiphand missions). Players can also acquire special lockboxes with unique decor items, costumes, and random parts of the ship construction sets. So get ready to turn your home into a launch pad, because you’ve got lots of ship parts to mix and match.

This is absolutely the direction Star Trek Online should have gone or should still go to with their ship design/customization.
I haven’t seen any videos but this looks along the lines of SPORE’s vehicle/building/creature creator.
I would probably still be playing STO if the ship builder was like this.
I was hoping that Rebel Galaxy had or will have ship modification or creation like this. (small team so doubtful but one can hope)

I have an alt whose characterization is focused on heing a pikot and cargo hauler. Pieces that allow me to more believably build her a ship?
Count me in.

Considering how fast currencies accrued in the ither events, it won’t take that much time at all.

Sounds like a lovely lawn ornament…

A limited time off requiring grinding for currency, lockboxes and/or a disposable income loosed on their cash shop…
…if this thing was indefinite, I would say this a is a very good idea. I don’t think it’s indefinite though. :(

I’d actually be tempted to give Wildstar a try if it had legitimate space ship stuff.

So the ship is completely useless?

This was pretty unexpected. Wasn’t even on their calendar of events. Not that I’m complaining. An excuse to run more shiphands isn’t a bad thing in my book. :)

neserbohy Try running the other shiphands?  M13 is pretty fast, and Fragment Zero isn’t too bad either.  The only one to really avoid is Deep Space Exploration.

BuchiBuci It is a little weird that they have double currency for this. But I’m guessing it’s because they have the shop stuff hooked in as well. Also being able to trade the currencies around to other players.

Either way, the NPCs are right next to each other. So like it will be a huge hassle.
