  • Add “limitTextureAtlasSize” option in starbound.config to manually limit texture atlas sizes. Should only necessary for video cards significantly below the minimum requirements.

Find all 1.2 servers here : https://starbound-servers.net/version/1_2_0/

MAJOR CHANGES

  • Ancient Vaults
    • Players who have completed the main storyline can visit a mysterious trader on the Outpost who will send them on a quest to activate and enter the Ancient Gateways found floating in some systems
    • These gateways provide access to Ancient Vaults: challenging procedural dungeons left by the ancients, filled with dangerous guardians (including procedural bosses!) and fantastic lost technologies
  • Terraforming
    • Using powerful devices acquired from the Ancient Vaults along with a new Essence currency, you can now transform regions or whole planets into entirely different biomes
    • Terraformers can be used to expand a region across a planet’s surface, replacing natural blocks, objects and plant life, and eventually changing the type of the planet itself
    • Microformers are consumable single-use terraformers which provide even more region types to add to your worlds
  • Weapon Upgrades
    • Use the ancient anvil available at the end of Ancient Vaults and spend Essence to upgrade your outdated legendary weapons, opening up many new options for endgame combat styles
  • Elemental Damage
    • Monsters now have resistance and weakness to elemental damage types, making your choice of weapons more important than ever
  • Holiday Spirit!
    • Celebrate the holidays with the variety of festive items bought from Space Santa at the Outpost!

MINOR CHANGES / BUG FIXES

  • Holding the activation key while in a distortion sphere tech will force deactivation, to avoid being permanently stuck in small spaces

    • Objects can have a new boolean key, “biomePlaced” which if true will cause them to be placed and removed by terraforming.

  • Player inventory can now be configured in player.config, allowing changes to:
    • Number of bags
    • Inventory size of each bag
    • Number of action bars
    • Action bar size
    • NOTE: modifications to player inventory size need to be applied both server side and client side, and will invalidate existing characters

    • Damage effects (sounds, particles) can be configured for each hit type (Hit, WeakHit, StrongHit, ShieldHit, Killed) in damage type configurations (.damage files).
    • Added support for elemental types to damage types. Elemental types can be configured in /damage/elementaltypes.config and can be set for each damage type using the “elementalType” key, which defaults to the “default” elemental type.

Known Issues

  • Since we’ve changed the combat balance so much, we’re still in the process of tuning the monsters, NPCs and mission bosses. If you find things that are way too hard or too easy, let us know!
  • We’ve done a lot to improve performance but there’s still a lot more we plan to do before the game’s released. Hopefully you’ll see things running smoother, but don’t panic if some areas are still slow.
  • Liquids in and around microdungeons sometimes aren’t placed in a correctly settled manner and will settle after the world is first loaded
  • Some NPCs in biomes aren’t well equipped to fight monsters
  • If you’re running Windows 7, make sure you have service pack 1 installed. Seriously – install those service packs!
  • Steam may leave dbghelp.dll in the win32 or win64 folders by mistake, which will cause Starbound not to launch. You can fix this by getting rid of the file or deleting and re-installing Starbound.
  • If you’re still having trouble launching the game, head to the ‘prereqs’ folder in your Starbound directory and install the vc_redist.exe that corresponds to your OS.

New Starbound Unstable Update "Pleased Giraffe" https://starbound-servers.net/blog/28/new-starbound-unstable-update-pleased-giraffe/ https://starbound-servers.net/blog/28/new-starbound-unstable-update-pleased-giraffe/ Wed, 19 Aug 2015 01:55 CEST A new unstable patch for Starbound has been released, the "Pleased Giraffe".

Notes For Existing Characters

First off, in case you’re worried, we are not wiping characters or universes this patch and have no plans to do so. You can continue playing your existing characters and worlds from previous stable versions of Starbound, but there are a few things that will have changed.

The biggest change is that this patch brings the first part of a major rebalance to weapons. Any randomly generated melee or ranged weapons you have will be regenerated to a weapon of the same type and level (and keep their name), but will have different appearances and rebalanced stats. This includes weapons modded with custom drawables, so for those of you who care about this, make sure to keep a copy of your drawable data to recreate the weapon later. Most non-generated weapons will have altered stats, but otherwise keep similar abilities and appearances.

While we’ve done our best to add conversion scripts for all of the things we’ve changed, it’s been awhile since the last patch and there may be some that we’ve missed. If you’re playing Unstable with your characters from a previous (vanilla) Stable version, please let us know if you’ve lost items or have trouble loading existing worlds so we can sort it out before the Stable release!

If you’re the kind of player that doesn’t mind starting over and wants to see all the newest changes, you will probably want to start a new universe for this patch since we’ve made a lot of big improvements to terrain generation and biomes that you might not get to see otherwise!

Known Issues

  • Since we’ve changed the combat balance so much, we’re still in the process of tuning the monsters, NPCs and mission bosses. If you find things that are way too hard or too easy, let us know!
  • We’ve done a lot to improve performance but there’s still a lot more we plan to do before the game’s released. Hopefully you’ll see things running smoother, but don’t panic if some areas are still slow.
  • Liquids in and around microdungeons sometimes aren’t placed in a correctly settled manner and will settle after the world is first loaded
  • NPCs occasionally get stuck rotated after getting out of bed, which is hilarious but unintended
  • Some NPCs in biomes aren’t well equipped to fight monsters
  • If you’re running Windows 7, make sure you have service pack 1 installed. Seriously – install those service packs!
  • Steam may leave dbghelp.dll in the win32 or win64 folders by mistake, which will cause Starbound not to launch. You can fix this by getting rid of the file or deleting and re-installing Starbound.

Changelog

Major Changes

  • Colony System
    • Colonize your worlds! Create a home, decorate it nicely, then place a Colony Deed to attract a tenant!
    • The type of NPC who moves in will depend on the type and quality of the home’s furniture and decorations. Decorating a room with several objects from the same theme (such as a biome or material tier) will attract a tenant themed to match!

  • New Outpost Store: Frögg Furnishings

Existing characters and universes are safe (aside from the codexes and home planet, as listed above). However, a few of these changes may require a new universe or new planets to take effect. Hope you all enjoy the changes, and for those of you playing on the Unstable branch, let us know if you find any bugs or have other feedback!

Server Features

  • Access to tile protection system, preventing modification of specific areas
  • Ability to set spawn point for a world

  • Several other new admin commands

  • RCON support

Because of these all changes, we recommend that everyone start a new character.  The game has changed so drastically that you’d miss out on most of the new content if you simply used an old character.  As a result, the launcher will automatically rename your old data.  We may be releasing external tools in the next few weeks to import and convert these files to approximately equivalent characters, but unless and until then they will be unusable.
