Ships

From Star Atlas Wiki

Over 120 individual designs of ships (also known as spaceships) will exist in the Star Atlas metaverse. These ships are being produced by at least 9 different manufactures.[1]

The ships are used by players and NPC’s to explore the deep reaches of space, transport precious materials, run missions, perform in combat, and many other activities. Each ship has components and modules that can be switched and upgraded and additionally requires a crew to operate.[2]

Additionally, there are skins that can be applied to a ship to change its appearance.[3]

Released ships[edit source]

The first 9 ships were airdropped September 2nd[4] to all wallets that were eligible for (some of) the Rebirth rewards.

The first public sale of ships started September 7th, when the team added their initial supply for 5 of these ships to the marketplace. Two days later, on September 9th, they added the additional 4 Rebirth-ships, completing their sale of the ships that were airdropped a week before.[5]

On September 4th the team released a brochure detailing the full line-up of the 27 ships that would be coming to the mini-game.[6]. Ships are planned to be released over the coming weeks.[5]

Purchasing ships[edit source]

Ships are both sold by the team to help fund the development of Star Atlas, and by players reselling ships, they acquired previously. In the future players will be able to construct their own ships and sell them on the Galactic Marketplace.[2]

Ships, components, crew and skins are all NFT’s.[2]

To purchase a ship, visit the Galactic Marketplace.

Renting ships[edit source]

Players will be able to rent out ships to other players in the future, in a way that allows the borrower to set game-related restrictions}. It’s not yet clear what these might be, except that it will be possible to restrict access to the High-Risk Zone (deep space).[citation needed]

Production state[edit source]

The "mini-game" will be launching with 27 different ships whereas the full-game will one day have at least 120 ships people can add to their fleet.[1][7][8]

Progress on the development of the different ships varies, the following categories are used on this wiki to describe their current state:

  • Announced - Mentioned by the developers, no work has yet been performed / Concept art was shared
  • Airdropped - Some users received this ship as part of a promotion / event
  • Released - The ship's full initial supply was sold by the team
  • Showroom ready - Development is done and the ship can be seen in the 3D Showroom module*

*) This state won't be reached until the UE5 Showroom module has been released.

Ship sizes[edit source]

Ships come in various sizes, that have been split by the team, based on length, into several categories. Each category determines the range of crew slots available. Based on this number a different license might be required in order to be able to use the ship in-game.[citation needed]
