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 v1.5 has been released, introducing support for spherical planets. This has been a popular feature request since the first release of Masterspace. The traditional hemispherical planets are still there and will continue to be the standard planet type for now. This is due to some features, like trees and water, not being available in this geometry yet. To enable the generation of spherical planets, change the last setting in the configuration frontend.

Spherical Planets WIP

As it is very difficult to construct buildings on a spherical planet by placing cubes, the concept of contruction platforms is introduced. Placement of construction platforms allows buildings that are not aligned to the cubic grid. They are essentially voxel volumes, that are placed inside another voxel volume. This makes it easy to construct rotated buildings, which is crucial to be able to build in any angle on spherical planets. Of course this will also be useful in constructing rotated buildings on planar planets, as illustrated in this screenshot.

Another new feature is the possibility to use custom voxel meshes, which allows for construction of e.g. pipelines. Pipes are constructed in the steel forge and may be placed like any other material. The plan is for pipelines to be able to pump liquids from one place to another, although this has not been implemented yet.
