Starbase previews moon base building and moon mining features in a video

Care to build your own Moon Zero Two? Eventually you’ll be able to in Starbase, though it will most likely be more utilitarian and less a location for go-go dancers and soft heist caper intrigue, as outlined in a recent preview video from the devs.

The video focuses on the moons that orbit Eos, each with their own unique atmospheres, gravity, and material makeup. Players are free to mine these moons as they see fit, either with pickaxes, explosives, or lasers, and can even find veins of ore hidden beneath the surface.

For those who are looking to do some long-term mining, a base will need to be constructed. Doing so is similar to space station construction, with a base foundation as the first piece that needs to be laid, then crafting benches must be assembled. After that, it’s more of the details-oriented construction that Starbase is pretty well known for. The entire process is outlined in the video below.

a pickaxe…

These guys are crazy. They also apparently looked into the same tech SC is working on and deemed it “obsolete”.

Not sure if they understand what the word obsolete means if they are comparing their world tech to SC’s. Watching the video I would say their tech is WAY behind that of SC in most regards.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The lead dev was saying that in regards to their server tech. Servermeshing.

Ah, thanks for clarifying. No argument from me! Probably the most important feature SC needs to implement still.

It’s not really a question of quality. Their underlying strategy for handling lots of players in the same area is just different. EVE slows down the tickrate of their server nodes to handle a crush of players. Some games do it by having multiple instances of the same zone (SC). SB is doing something different which… I’m honestly not 100% sure they’re going to be able to pull off. It’ll be interesting to see.
