New Station Screenshots
The Space Station was an early feature in Starbound that was announced removed from the game, replaced by upgradable ships and homeworlds. The Station is a large area, with room for many players to congregate. PvP was announced disabled on Space Stations, making them 'safe zones'.


Tiy recently released a few screenshots of him exploring the Space Station, hinting that it may be added to the game as a future feature. He suggested it would unlock far into game-play for guilds or clans, and allow them to have a 'guild hall' type common area.[1]
