Build your own battleship from scratch, equip it with powerful weaponry and blow away your enemies (or pals)! Haul cargo, find profitable trading routes or work for hire to protect convoys from raiders and pirates. Or maybe you're sick of being the good guy and it's time for you to become a pirate yourself? Raid helpless freighters, smuggle illegal goods and scavenge old wreckages. Find your way to the center of a galaxy that gets more hostile, but also more rewarding the closer you get to its core. Get your friends and fleets ready and prepare for the treasures and dangers that await you.

New Blocks: Thrusters

The game now has new blocks to control your ship's maneuverability! Thruster blocks will influence the yaw, pitch and roll speed of your ship.
Additionally, they're also used for braking, flying backwards and reducing drift, by steering the ship into the direction it is looking. While this may sound complicated, all of the above will work fully automatically.

Depending on where the thruster blocks are placed on the ship their influence will be stronger or weaker. Thrusters placed far away from the rotation axis will have stronger impact on the rotational speed around that axis.

To see how it works in practice, see the demonstration below. The video also contains a peek on the reworked building mode. This is still work in progress. The new blocks will be released with the upcoming version 0.7.
