Star Control: Origins, the recently-released prequel entry to the long-running space exploration and combat strategy game, has released its v1.1 update which includes a free “Multiverse” DLC that introduces the ability to create and share mods.
A post on the official Steam Community for the game goes into more depth about what kind mod tools will be available to players. Players will be able to edit key values that determine how the universe works, such as gravity, weapon values, and more. Additionally, players will be able to create their own planets and entire star systems, along with their own new quests that can be tied to those systems and therefore criss-cross the galaxy in new and epic ways. Players can also customise their fleet of starships for use in these new adventures.
Thankfully, Stardock has released an in-depth modding guide and wiki that covers everything from how to get started with the mod tools, all the way up to sharing a mod. Some official Stardock-created mods have already been uploaded, so why not download the tools and get started on making your own epic Star Control Origins adventure today? Once you’re done, consider uploading your mod to ModDB and sharing with our community.
