Starbase is a massively multiplayer online game with gameplay focused on building and designing spaceships and stations, exploration, resource gathering, crafting, trading, and combat. Alternatively the game features a sandbox mode where players can explore the game alone or with selected friends in their own universe.
Better option is to use the DSAT system to find discovered or undiscovered asteroids and head to them promptly. Of course, once an asteroid is properly discovered there’s a narrow window of time before everyone can see what it has to offer, and there’s no such thing as a claim to mining on a given asteroid. So asteroids become a place for players to fight over who gets to dig up rocks, if you wanted a reason for PvP beyond simply having the option.
The new patch has also made a few tweaks to the recently added mortar ship, reducing its direct shot damage, moving the ship’s sail placement so they’re not blocking parts of the ship, and reducing its ship points from four to three, allowing players to use medium and small sails. The patch notes have all of the details.
