Starfield spaceships

Greetings, spacefarers! Ready to embark on an interstellar journey aboard your very own spaceship? Dive into the vast universe of Starfield's ship customization and let's craft a vessel that's uniquely yours!

The Ship Builder: Your Cosmic Workshop:

Starfield's ship customization is a central feature of Bethesda's new RPG. Think of it as your personal space garage, where you can build your ship like a Lego set using modular parts. These parts not only give your ship its unique look but also offer various functionalities.

Where to Customize?: Your journey begins at the Space Ports. Here, you can chat with the Ship Technician to repair, buy, sell, and modify ships. Want a fresh coat of paint? Use the color bars to pick any hue and adjust the saturation and brightness to your liking.

Ship Parts & Their Functions:

  1. Cowling: Shapes your ship and is mostly for aesthetics.

  2. Shield Generator: Provides a protective shield. The stronger, the better!

  3. Docker: Lets you dock and board other ships or space stations.

  4. Fuel Tank: Stores the fuel. Essential for those long space journeys.

  5. Graviton Loop Array/Grav Drive: Enables jumps between star systems.

  6. Weapons: Three main types to choose from:

  • Energy: Targets shields.

  • Ballistic: Damages the hull.

  • Electromagnetic (EM): Disrupts systems.

  1. Habitat Modules: Configurations for crew space.

  2. Engines: Dictates speed and acceleration. Remember, the ship's mass affects engine power.

  3. Cockpit: The captain's chair!

  4. Cargo Hold: More space for your space loot.

  5. Reactor: Likely the primary energy source. Could determine how many modules you can add.

  6. Bay: Multiple types, including landing and crafting bays.

  7. Landing Gears: Helps with those smooth landings. Different terrains might need different gears.

Ship Stats & Their Importance:

  • LAS: Laser damage strength.

  • BAL: Ballistic damage strength.

  • MSL: Missile damage strength.

  • Hull: The ship's exterior integrity.

  • Shield: Strength of your protective barrier.

  • Cargo: Inventory space.

  • Crew: Number of onboard members.

  • Jump Range: How far you can travel between star systems.

  • Mobility: Ship maneuverability.

  • Top Speed: Maximum flight speed.

  • Mass: Ship's weight, affecting engine power.

Designing Your Dream Ship:

  1. Purpose First: Combat, exploration, or trade? Decide your ship's primary role.

  2. Mix & Match: Combine different ship parts for functionality and aesthetics.

  3. Upgrade & Evolve: As you progress, keep an eye out for advanced modules and parts.

Combat-Ready Starships: While the specifics on the best combat ships are yet to be detailed, a well-shielded ship with a balanced mix of all weapon types, coupled with a skilled crew, is likely to dominate space battles.

Tips for Aspiring Ship Builders:

  1. Know Thy Ship: The better you know your ship, the better you'll pilot it.

  2. Space Fashion: A good-looking ship is a happy ship. Don't neglect aesthetics!

  3. Safety First: Space is vast and unpredictable. Always have a backup plan.

In Conclusion: Starfield's ship builder offers an unparalleled level of customization.
