    Hey guys,

    We've released our launcher under the MIT license, feel free to modify it in whatever way you please, just remember to keep the copyright and license intact :) If you want to make a pull request to fix or add functionality, shoot us a message.

    If you're not using our launcher for StarMade purposes, please make sure to remove all StarMade assets before distributing it.

    Github repo is here: Schine/StarMade-Launcher

    Thank you to NZSmartie for reminding us of our plans to release it under an open source license.

    Is it strange that I still use the old simpler launcher form five years ago?
    I do too. Its easier to have multiple copies/versions of the game then because i can just copy it to a new folder and install another copy of the game there. If the new launcher allows that, i have yet to find out how.

    Unfortunately I have to use multiple copies of the launcher for extra installs. Would be great if someone mods in support for that

    For anyone interested. I've forked the launcher and updated it to support NodeJS v10 LTS and updated to Electron v1.0.0. This is to help build electron in modern development environments.

    Support NodeJS LTS v10.15.3 and Electron v1.0.0 by NZSmartie · Pull Request #2 · Schine/StarMade-Launcher

    I'll continue to update the launcher to support latest stable packages and hopefully make it easier for others to develop with.

    My end goal is to support launching the game with a custom mod loader (in my case Frabric's loader). With a secondary goal of supporting multiple versions being installed at the same time.

    Wonder how many versions of the launcher there's going to be by next update? :)
