Satellites Pack (Discontinued!) 9/18/17

Adds space station dungeons into the game, as well as spots for players to build their own!

  1. Shadow Wolf TJC
    Note: Due to the introduction of player-built space stations in vanilla Starbound as of version 1.3, this mod pack has been discontinued. However, there are plans to expand upon the features that were added into Starbound, especially when it comes to adding new space-based dungeons to the game, though they'll probably be reserved for a new mod.

    Note: I'm currently looking for someone who would be willing to continue development of this mod in my absence.

    Warning! Since these mods modify star generation, it's unlikely to work with other mods that likewise do so, unless specific addons for those mods were developed!

    Warning: There's no guarantee that the Frackin Universe addons will work with the latest version of Frackin Universe, especially as months pass! Frackin Universe seems to update at far too fast a pace for me to be able to keep up! Others are strongly advised to take this mod, and update it themselves! You have been warned! Unfortunately, Frackin Universe support has been momentarily cut.

    Formerly known as just the Player-Built Space Stations mod, this has since been expanded into a pack of interconnected mods that not only includes the aforementioned ability for players to build their own space stations from scratch on certain points in space, but now readily adds in the ability for modders to place down their own space station dungeons in a way that all but guarantees that dungeons won't easily cause compatability issues due to replacing stuff within celestial.config.

    Each spot where players may build space stations gives players about 16384x4096 blocks worth of building space, which is more than what the game currently gives you for any planet! Be sure to bring some breath protection though. ;) Dungeons, on the other hand, may have any amount of space that the dungeon creator(s) deem necessary for their needs.

    Note: You might need to either delete your "universe" folder, or explore a new part of the universe, in order for this to work, since the game stores information about your universe as you play the game, using assets from whatever mods you had installed when the universe updates itself.

    A space station, as it appears on the background from the player's ship. A spot of empty space can also be seen in front of the planet, represented by the white speck:

    Various screenshots of a space station under construction at an empty spot. Additional empty spots can be seen in the background, in front of the planet. Also, to keep a spot from becoming unusable upon landing, the platform that the player lands on was made unbreakable:

    This mod looks well made, but whenever I try to load Space Station Dungeons Base, it tells me "cannot convert a null".

      You should replicate the error, and then post your starbound.log file within this mod's discussion board, so that I might be able to troubleshoot the problem. (You should possess the ability to include the file as an attachment to your post.) Without your starbound.log file, I can only guess at the problem (such as a mod conflict), which isn't all that helpful for me.

    the reason I give it a one star review is because when I try to load the game it says a asset is missing but I checked the files and everything seemed in order

      Try downloading it again. Apparently, there was a syntax error that got overlooked, but that's recently been patched out.

    Eh kinda Useless if you wanted a satellite or a space station you could ,A go to an asteroid field or ,B go to a planet of choice and build a stairway to heaven not many know that there is actually space straight up in this game but cool mod nonetheless

    I want to like the mod, But the fact that you can't actually build on the space areas makes me unable to, I noticed a platform is SUPPOSED to generate near the spawn area, but for me it will not.

    Really great mod, only like fail1aw said, there's no starting platform and its impossible to build in the open space.
