    The dev build was updated Monday, and again in August just a couple weeks ago. so it's also still being developed.

    Starmade may have been a good game but not perfect. It allows creation of functioning, working spacecraft that is very unlike Minecraft but it still have a few shortcomings, such as the Power 2.0 that received criticism. I still play Starmade, occassionally. As Eric said, there might be updates out there... ;)

    PS: I am new but getting cool with it. Thank you Drakkart and Gmodism for making tutorials that helped me. ^^

    Hey thanks for saying that! Just found this now when I was googeling what even is happening with starmade XD

    Also hey Drakkart, long time no see good you are still in business as well mate!

    Cool that updates are coming in again then, was talking with schema some months ago when he said he get late summer, will play this game when it gets out, I have huge projects and templates ready for release (almost)
    Just didn't wanna do it when stuff stagnated so I'm hyped to get back!

    It's good to see you guys again. Your posts, vids and tutorials were always a pleasure to see. They were instrumental to some of my more advanced builds.

    With over eight years (and counting) invested into playing this game; Starmade has become a little corner of creativity and nostalgia for me.

    I still play in creative mode when I have spare time; mostly working on my own custom mods but it's good to know that the dev team is still working on the official build.

    Maybe when my IRL issues are settled and Schema's dream is brought to fruition we'll meet again among the stars; either in his universe or mine.

    This game sure as hell wasn't perfect, but it was a lot of fun. My hope remains that it will at least get back to a point where I actually enjoy building again.

    The new systems just suck, but there are newer features that I like. If Schema would have opened up development earlier I think he could have saved himself the headache of trying to fix the various gameplay issues and just focused on expanding the game.

    Oh well I know he has passion for this project, so let's see if he finds a way to make a comeback.

    Even after all this time, this is still my third most played game according to Steam, and I played a whole lot before the steam version even came out. There's just nothing else out there that would be as satisfying in terms of design/functionality! It's a real shame that the repeated reworkings of the ship systems threw some people off, but here's to hoping this comes back to life some day.

    Or, even if it doesn't, I'll still sure as heck be here, modeling crappy ships c:

    Apropo, I've noticed the talk of mods in the discord, but I wasn't able to quite figure out which ones to keep an eye out for and how much do they add in terms of mechanics? Pointers, anyone?

    sorry to correct you, the updates that we received the past 12 months are not made by schema, but by the modding community which merges the modloader piece by piece into the game. Schine isnt developing the game, rather just publishing the modding changes made by the community.

    I feel like I'm walking into an old bar I used to frequent, and I'm seeing all these familiar faces here.

    It's tough to imagine StarMade fully completed. I'll be overjoyed if we ever see major updates and reworks that look promising to the game's future.

    For now, I continue to be a silent watcher.
