Starbase from Frozenbyte Games is still in Early Access. However, the developers just removed a major update that added the Blueprint shopping list to the Auction House, as well as Station Easy Build Mode expandable areas.
One of the most important things added in the October 8 update is the ability to know what parts and materials you still need to complete a blueprint. The necessary materials will be placed under the “Materials” tab and the parts that you are missing will be displayed in the “Parts” tab.
The beauty of this new feature is that you no longer have to research individual materials yourself, as selecting the things you are missing will automatically search the auction house for them.
Some improvements and bugfixes have been implemented in Easy Build Mode (EBM). Now you can safely unlock items and avoid resource consumption when activating this particular feature.
Additionally, new EBM zones have been added after gaining enough voxel mass in the station. You will get a total of 30 new zones per station. The extension of the station must be placed inside the security zone.
Highlights of the fixes
Added sprint animations for the 1st person grenade launcher
Fixed a bug that prevented the player from aiming down after starting to hover during the reload animation
THE EXPLOITATION OF ASTERODES
Ore from asteroids is collected incorrectly
