    Hey everyone!

    We’ve been working on missions for the final game! Here’s a little look at the start of an upcoming mission – looks kind of intense. What do you think it’ll be about?

    This week’s community-run Build of the Week theme is Crash Sites, and there have already been some really really cool submissions. Here’s a crashed freighter from ElvenCourage!

    To submit your Build of the Week, check the Starbound subreddit for the current week’s theme, build something awesome, and then submit it as a link post with the prefix [BotW] or [Build of the Week]. Sometimes we post our favorites. :)

    ‘Til next time~

    That first one looks like a raid on an miniknog base

    and OH MAH GAWSD THAT FREIGHTER SHOULD TOTALLY BE IMPLEMENTED INTO THE GAME!

    this is such an awesome game! i have an idea for something: hav a location in space with a single block there...could be anything as long as u can place blocks attached to it to build a base floating in space...i kno u can do it on the asteroid fields, but i would like an area for just the stuff i place...i dont even care about the hazards of the area! (whether its radiation, lack of oxygen, etc). also, something to fly with in areas designated for building would be awesome! again, i love all aspects of this game! EDIT: if that isnt possible, and someone has taken the time to remove the asteroids, plz upload the world in a reply...i would immeasurably appreciate it!

    So far, you gonna find a trinket that you're supposed to nab but can't actually nab yet. And there's a big ol' room fit for a boss battle, but it's abandoned... for now.

    Agree, it would be really cool to randomly find crashed ships.

    Bout time this Thread got Created. Got worried when the News showed up with no Thread to go with it.

    With that said, I second fernworrier that i'd love to beat the ever living snot outta Big Ape! :sparta:

    The music for the apex level is fantastic. I'm using it this morning to make my house-cleaning more dramatic.

    Such a mission of that form made me imagine a scene of a future novelized playthrough,
    "Your fiery ideals will be extinguished, Big Ape!" Hatsya, the Human-Ningen alliance representative, pointed his cubic Manaticon Azureshredder Pistol at the angry ape boss.
    "Everyone has their preordained position, and everyone is in their place except you." Big Ape blasted Hatsya's right knee, "You, and your big-eyed comrades will screw our Universal Order!"
    "Right." Hatsya smiled as he hacked the Big Ape's forehead with a quickly-rendered Star Cleaver from his back.

    Ah crash sites, brilliant! Technology in decay is such a lovely motif...

    I'd love to see someone iterate upon the haunted shipwreck from Super Metriod. It's my favorite place to visit in that game and woefully the shortest.

    I think I'll walk forward and then all those enemies will say something and then run single-file into my gunfire. Then I'll use 4 bandages and walk forward 20 yards until it happens again. Maybe some switches involved.
