Chucklefish's 2D space exploration sandbox title Starbound has been updated with a new patch
, this time adding in themed Valentine's Day items to help show your love to those planetary aliens. These include new swords, costumes, decorations and a bow among others for players to discover.
The update isn't all content though, with some changes to how the sandbox's update system works in allowing Chucklefish the ability to add new biomes and make changes to worlds without the possibility of the player losing their world. The team does state that there will most likely be one more world wipe sometime in the future when they finalise the universe layout.
Additional changes include:
Engine feature, tech can now be granted by armors
Keybinding reconfiguration, minus the UI (you can reconfigure keys through a config file- check here for a tutorial)
Server stability fixes for servers with many players
New death animations
Engine feature, all objects are now scriptable and interactive
More Avian weaponry
Dogs can now be captured (lots more pets coming soon)
A bunch of new items and smaller pieces of content
New (actually sounds good!) microphone instrument with sounds provided by Smooth McGroove!
Bug where warping to magma/volcano biomes caused crashing was fixed.
There will also be additional content coming shortly that includes new biomes, however the team need to wait until after this patch, as it needs to be adapted to the new content update system. For now you can check out the smooth moves of Smooth McGroove
in action below.
