Starbase: October 8 Update Adds Blueprint Shopping List to Auction House

Starbase Steam

Starbase by Frozenbyte Games is still in early access. However, the developers just dropped a major update that added the Blueprint Shopping list to the Auction House, as well as expandable Station Easy Build Mode areas.

One of the biggest things added in the October 8 Update is the ability to know which parts and materials you still need to complete a blueprint. The needed materials will be placed under the “Materials” tab and the parts that you lack will be shown in the “Parts” tab.

The beauty of this new feature is that you no longer have to scour for individual materials yourself as selecting the things that you lack will automatically conduct a search for them in the auction house.

Some improvements and bug fixes have been implemented to the Easy Build Mode (EBM). Now, you can safely unbolt items and prevent resource consumption when enabling this particular feature.

In addition, new EBM areas have been added after gaining enough voxel mass in the station. You will get a total of 30 new areas per station. Station expansion must be placed inside the safe zone.
