Ship Upgrade

From Starbounder - Starbound Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A fully upgraded Apex ship
As the player progresses through the story of Starbound, they'll unlock additional upgrades to their starter ship. These additional upgrades provide more space on the ship for players to place objects, as well as crafting stations, containers, and furniture.

After repairing the ship's thrusters and FTL drive the player will open a variety of Quests that they must complete in order to upgrade the size of their ship. These quests are given at the Outpost. The outpost has many 'side' quests, most of which are actually required before ship upgrade quests appear; so if you feel stuck, try finishing all the quests available at the outpost.
