Masterspace v2.1 released

Masterspace v2.1 has been released introducing improvements to the world generator. Planet generation is now based on both temperature and humidity parameters, allowing generation of various environments including desert, ice, water and lava planets. To accommodate low humidity planets, a new type of desert sand has been added as well as a cactus generator. On really hot planets, there will also be liquid lava, which is highly hazardous. Each planet will now also have a unique atmosphere composition. Furthermore, smaller asteroids have been added to the world generation, providing plenty of resources but a highly limited building area.

This version also introduces a perk leveling system, connected to accumulation of culture points. Perk points may be spent on e.g. improving construction speed or increasing player health. Perks are scripted similar to other objects in the game, which allows for easy modification or adding of new perks.

Another new feature is the welding system, which allows objects to be welded in place. This also allows for objects to be placed on walls or on any other surface.

New objects in the game include a teleporter, which may be used for quick transportation, and a meteorite deflector, which may be used to decrease the frequency of meteorite impacts on planets. Furthermore, two new lamp types have been added, suitable for placement on walls. The turret has been split in one large and one small variant. Finally, a flagpole has been added, which may be used to claim planets. Flagpoles also allow for planets to be renamed.
