    Ahhhhhh. Starbound draws ever closer to the console wars. I can just feel the money flying out of my wallet, what jooooooy. Soon I will be able to play this game from the PC, the comfort of a console whilst on the , and the plessure of feeding on theflesh of my victems anywhere on Earth with the Vita. OOOOHHHHH what happppinessss.

    1: I love that you pick up where you left off. Auto starting at the ship felt like cheating. So +1 for that.
    2: How do you reset the universe?

    To reset the universe just go into the giraffe_storage folder and look for universe folder, delete everything inside that one.
    And your universe is reset.
    I personally reset every time a major update like this happens to hit cause I want to see if I can get all the new features.
    Also aside from Human[which gets the cat] what the other races get as a ship pet?

    The launcher doesn't matter - its only what steam says.
    Either way Stable and Unstable would have gotten the update.

    If you want though you can just switch back to Stable branch, so you don't need to test anymore buggy unstable updates in the future.

    Awesome new update! But could you have the homeworlds remain saved? My homeworld had tons of resources and equipment all stashed there. And its all gone now...

    Heads up, added some documentation on some functionality that juuuuuust made it into stable.

    We've extended the json patch system to add functionality to the "test" operation.

    You can use "inverse" : true, to invert the test. And you can check just for existence by omitting the "value" key.

    Some examples:

      "foo" : "bar",
      "baz" : [1, 3, 2, 9],
      "test" : {
        "xyzzy" : [0]
    Example passing tests
    // handles wrong values
    { "op" : "test", "path" : "/foo", "value" : "not bar", "inverse" : true }
    // handles missing values
    { "op" : "test", "path" : "/baz/2", "value" : 9, "inverse" : true }
    // handles wrong types
    { "op" : "test", "path" : "/test/xyzzy/somekey", "value" : null, "inverse" : true }
    // check path for existence
    { "op" : "test", "path" : "/test/xyzzy/0" }
    // check path for non-existence
    { "op" : "test", "path" : "/baz/4", "inverse" : true }
    Your homeworld is still there. If you know the coordinates you can get back to it. Even if you don't, if you just peek into your "universe" directory and look at the name of the world files, you can use the coordinates and try to find your way back.

    That stable release did some unwanted effects on my ship:
    My former cat pet found in the mine disappeared;
    All camera objects dropped on the floor;
    My emergency switch disappeared.

    Been on the unstable for a bit. When I have any time to play anyways.
    I absolutely love the new teleporter and bookmark system. And the stay-in-cave-after-quitting bit is awesome too.

    I feel like I'm shooting myself in the foot reporting this, but when I logged into my Avian character for the update I had two pets instead of what I assume would normally be one. A weasel of some sort and a little bunny. I want to keep them both so much. They're so adorable. It's great when they're both trying to play with the ball and they keep leaping for it and bouncing it back to each other. I don't want to lose my two pets. I don't know what's wrong, but it couldn't be more right.

    As read from the the blog post, the black cat was a placeholder for the ship pet system which it replaced.
    I'm not too sure about why the 2 other issues occurred, however.

    You can still try to look into your Starbound/giraffe_storage/universe folder; there you'll find all the coordinates you ever visited. You can sort them by time and as such, look which planet you visited the last time. ;)

    No no no... I meant that as some sort of... you know... humour-esque comment... I was starting over xD I had everything in my ship all along... (it really is a well organized mess)

    edit: Thank you still!

    Considering that you have two apex ship lockers (and not the buildable kind) your obviously editing your ship outside of whats intendeed (aka cheating).

    Unless im mistaken a piece of furniture causes pets to spawn on ships (not sure if it was the ship terminal or captains chair). If you cheat in extra's of that piece of furniture (theres no legit way to get them) it will result in stuff like this.

    At least thats my theory.
