Starbase continues working on its Easy Build mode and improves explosions

It's not bae any more.

So what’s going down on the development side of Starbase? Well, you know. Shooting at ships with a sniper rifle, making parts explode, that sort of thing. No, really; the latest notes for development include working on particle effects and electrical effects, and that includes explosions roiling off of ships that have been damaged. You can even see it in action in the video down below, if you can stomach the sickening groan of metal each time part of the ship explodes.

Other progress has been made beyond just art, however; the developers are continuing to work on the Easy Build mode in various capacities, including for moon base construction while improving how it works for stations. This is a good thing for players who are perhaps expecting to need the help. Check out the full rundown on the latest week’s development activity for a more rounded picture.

my concern is that: i’ll put in hours to create that wonderful ship (wonderful only in my eyes, most likely it will look like complete garbage). Then i’ll fly around and because of my absolute trash flying skill i crashed into every single astroid i could find. Now trying to fix it and get it back in shape, the ship will look like a steel cube covered in bandages, not as the garbage starship i intended in the beginning.

Is there also an ‘easy repair’ mode, which will let me repair the ship to what it was easily or even automatically? I never liked the ‘hmm what was on this empty spot’-feeling after every battle, when i was playing empyrion.

anywho, i really like how starbase it coming along! i hope this will turn out the way it looks like

I really hope you can save your schematic and repair it from that. I’ve built so many cool spaceships in Empyrion, only to wind up doing as you said, crashing through every asteroid I could find and ultimately destroying my week long work on a ship.
