Masterspace is a game about mining, creating and exploring, featuring fully destructible environments and spaceships that allow you to travel between different planets. Use explosives to mine metal ores or watch your newly constructed home get smashed to pieces by a meteorite impact. As you venture into space to discover new planets, the hull integrity of your custom built spaceship will be tested.

Masterspace v1.4 has been released, finally introducing a long-awaited feature: liquid simulation. This allows planets to be filled with completely dynamic liquids, such as water and lava. The water simulation is mass-conserving, which means that no water is created or destroyed during the flow. There is also an implementation of liquid compression, which makes the water flow more realistic.

This version also includes generated trees on the planets, which may be harvested to fabricate wood boards. Consequently, the functionality of the photosynthesizer has been reworked to be able to fabricate any organic matter, including grass, wood and leaves. New objects also include defensive turrets, trading posts and electronic components.

On the multiplayer side, it is now possible to assign teams to players and objects. This means that competitive play is now possible, with opposing teams starting on different planets, having ownership of their own constructed objects. Teams are also considered by the AI of e.g. turrets, when deciding what to target. There are also hostile turrets occupying neutral planets, so prepare to meet some resistance when expanding your sphere of influence. A hint is to mount turrets on your spaceship before exploring the universe.
