Players have a "Ship Creator" tool to customize the look and functionality of their ships.

Salvageable modules and parts mean that provoking engagements and pirating become an aspect of gameplay - also salvaging wrecked ships provides an alternative career path.


  • Small
    • Maximum module capacity (or just too much weight to push with small engines)
    • Connections between modules are 1m circles about the origin
  • Medium
  • Large
  • Massive
    • Asteroid Base with large thrusters

List of Modules

Required Modules

  • Engine
  • Cockpit

When you boil it down, for the smallest ship possible, all you would need is a cockpit and engine. But if you're an I-mort, then you don't even need the cockpit.

So perhaps I-morts need a sensor array in their basic ships. (Since they don't have eyes)

  • Sensor array

Optional Modules

For I-morts, all the modules involving habitation and health are unnecessary, (unless you are a passenger ship) and only a thumbdrive would really be needed to store an I-mort at that level of technological advancement.

  • Weapons
    • Lasers
      • Able to rotate around a cylindrical gantry
