      BetterBuilding 1.3.9

      A small mod to help with building and design. Currently it supports multiple build hotbars in creative mode (using LALT + number or scroll), but I hope to add more features in future. IMPORTANT NOTICE PLEASE READ: Due to StarMade's lack of proper gui scaling, some clients may show the hotbar...

      Kraengis's galactic assets

      Hi guys! I've built already a few ships and systems all centered around a common theme/timeline that I'd to show off and expand in the future. I didn't play for a few months but I'm slowly coming back to the game. I don't plan building around one build technique as I'd like to improve myself...

      Block Shape Wireframe reticle?

      How about a wireframe reticle of the block shape in build mode? Placing cubes is simple enough, but if I try to place a non-cubic shape, even something as simple as a wedge, of a dark color (like black), then the faded ghost that I see when trying to place it is so dim that I often cannot tell...

      When to use Motherboard/Circuits vs Hull/Armor (power 2.0)

      It would seem that many, newcomers or not, would misuse or underuse the motherboard, circuit/charged circuit, and hull/armor blocks. This has minutes ago become a huge disappointment to me and I will write a simple guide to use these. Like any guide there will be people who post "Oh, I already...

      Spherical System Group Efficiency Bonus

      To reduce spaghetti ship systems, I recommend a slight bonus with a group of system blocks grouped tightly inside a sphere containing the entire system group. The bonus should be pretty small, to avoid unnecessary restriction on ship system design. To avoid combat-lag, I recommend that the...

      I'm trying to build a ship

      I'm currently trying to build a fleet of luxury ships in Starmade. I know what I want each ship to have, I just don't know how to go about building the interiors and exteriors, especially when I want my ships to have moving parts like hangar doors and landing gear and boarding ramps. I just...

      Include Turrets in Shipyards

      Simple: either through designating a storage as being for turret plans or through allowing selection of blueprints labelled as turrets, add a feature to shipyards allowing the builder (with available resources) to add turrets from a list to any empty turret dock on the loaded design.

      Layered Building - like alternative dimensions

      Alright, so this idea is to have non-physical blocks exist in an alternative build dimension, which can be used to add location specific effects and also for logic. What do I mean by this? Well, let's take logic for example. You could have a logic layer on ships, where only logic-connectable...

      Anyone have some nice building techniques?

      Hi, I'm not sure to put this in Shipyard, but since it's about ships, I'll post it here I'm wondering if anyone has some good techniques to building when it comes to functionality & design? I have noticed that building in StarMade is quite similar to minecraft, and I am a pretty experienced...

      Improving Interior and Exterior Aesthetics

      I have a ship that I recently built, it is mostly a docking area inside, but half of it has rooms inside. When I look at the interior I can't help but think it look too plain and sterile (partly because most of them are empty), any help about what to add to it? Also, I find the exterior very...

      Skeletoning ships?

      How do you guys plan your ship frames? Do you just build from the core, or make a separate structure and then copy:paste it in position? Moreover, where do you put your core? On an exterior bridge, for ease of access, or way in the middle, so it's hard to hit it?
