Post news RSS Starpoint Gemini 2 - Update v0.6008 brings ship visual customization

A brand new update to Starpoint Gemini 2 - Alpha version brings visual ship customization, the frequently asked about shortcuts and many bug fixes. A couple of screenshots are thrown in as well, to spice things up.

Posted by on

Update 0.6008 is more focused on fixes rather than adding more content. The highlights are ship visual customization available on the Station->Drydock panel, functional shortcuts (sorry it took this long ladies and gents) and a severe optimization of the GUI system. We've drastically improved performance of that section. You might notice some performance improvement in general as well. This is only ONE optimization step and further will follow.

We're very eager to show off more of our work and to continue implementing global events, more Freelance missions and build up on the existing game world. The entire changelist can be found below!

We've made a small collection of screenshots from the latest build to accompany the update:

Can I put my own logos in-game?

Indeed you can :). We're keeping the game as open to modding as possible. Adding new logos/banners can be done in two ways:
1)change the existing logos on the appropriate texture
2)add new logos to the banners texture and add the needed info in the banners.wdt database table. Database tables can be edited with the Notepad, so it shouldn't be a problem. We've got a lot of info already on the modding site modding.starpointgemini.com
