I’ve been getting way into Starbound again recently, it’s such a beautiful game. Yeah, I’m aware the game had a recent spike in players and why that happened, but that’s certainly not the reason why I got back into it. Each day I discover some new mini-biome, a new dungeon with beautiful architecture, or just expand my colony, always accompanied by the amazing soundtrack.
So yeah, this game is pretty much my happy place right now, and I’d like to share some screenshots from my recent sessions.
Here’s the first Hylotl village I discovered, 2 days ago. I like how they worked with fore- and background blocks to kinda give the buildings a third dimension and make them look more elaborate. And of course, as the weeb trash that I am, I love the japanese architecture and all the items and details they put into the little shop.
Yesterday evening I first found a village of my own people, the clearly Aztec-inspired Avian, including this burial pyramid and also a huge tower they use for the ritual of ascension. Learning about their culture was quite fascinating, and I was surprised about how much care the devs put into the lore behind just one of the 7 playable races in the game.
And finally, also last night, two of my main colony’s tenants asked for housing for Glitch (i.e. medieval-style robots) guards to be built, so I went “shopping” for furniture in a fortress I bookmarked a long time ago and built my own little Glitch keep, with guards housed on the ground floor, a mess hall with a cook who sells food items, and a King Glitch safely in the highest room in the top right with no access for ground-based predators.
Are there any other people here who play the game or did so in the past? What are your stories? I’d really love to see what other players built in their colonies, please share some screenshots if you have them!
