StarMade is a Minecraft inspired multiplayer 3D space shooter. Build your own ship and conquer the galaxy.

Report article RSS Feed StarMade Alpha 0.082 Released: New Building Tool & Bugfixes

This Version gives the player a more comfortable way to place multiple blocks at once.

Posted by schema on Aug 7th, 2012

Advanced Building Mode

This mode can be accessed by holding control. You can now define a cuboid of blocks, which will get placed at once. This makes ship building a lot easier. Block will not be overwritten, if you overlap, and if you not have enough blocks left in you inventory, the rest of it will be placed.

Note that I purposely kept a limit of a maximum of size 10, because ship building should be a challenge. That's why I won't add any very advanced tools to build ships. I want to keep it simple, and not emulate a 3d-modeling program. I will however in the feature release the format of importable ship-files, so modders can work with that.

Bug Fixes

  • fixed multiplayer bug, that would disable the physics on the server, what resulted in glitched physics on the client (ability to fly/fall into other objects)
  • fixed bug, that caused ghost characters, and the inability to control anything after a missile hit
  • fixed bug, that players would get kicked out of their ship if any controller gets destroyed by missile
  • fixed bug, that would not update ship values correctly on missile hits

Thanks for playing StarMade,

My god, do you ever sleep? Ever? Thank you for including an updater with your game or I could never keep up. Bet you have another update ready to go before I finish typing this. At least stop long enough to go to the bathroom. :)

So, can I buy a second copy for multiplayer through the same account on your website or do I need to create a new account?

:) thanks for your kind words, mate!

the game is free, so you don't have to buy anything to play multiplayer.

Every sell however supports my vampire life ;)

Okay, playing hardball. I will just make a second account to buy another copy. Excellent work and I hope you are either wealthy and can afford to do this as a hobby or . . . a vampire so you have no use of money. Either way, great job.
