Spacebit 0.4.0 Stable Desura Release


Hello everyone! Sorry for a little delay, the spaceship system took up a lot more time than we assumed, but everything is going well and the majority of the spaceship core fundamentals are stable and ready for Desura. Like every major update for Desura, we will post mass amounts of information to help you understand new mechanics and new changes made to Spacebit.


We hope to fix more problems we find with the spaceships and increase the spaceship UI for example adding a speed meter and height meter and many other spaceship only features.

Tips and Hints

Playing this stable version is very different from the current version on Desura. That's why we have the Tips and Hints section to help you with some of the things that changed in the game you would not have known prior to this massive update!

  • To build a Spaceship you need to use placement blocks as the foundation of your construction
  • Placement blocks can only be placed on Dirt
  • Spaceships only move forward
  • Spaceships have a fixed rotation and max speed
  • Spaceships can fly to other planets in your solar system
  • Enter your spaceship by pressing E
  • Once inside press Spacebar to lift up into the sky
  • Press Spacebar while in the sky to land
  • Press E once landed to exit the spaceship

Jeno's Art Development Section

Jeno is the 2D Artist behind the art you see in the inventory and action bars etc. We decided to showcase the mass amount of work and effort he puts into his artwork!! Take it away Jeno!

Note by Jeno: As with last time, i will make a nice compilation and put it over in the images section, consisting of higher res images of what are very small things in the game :)

Jeno's Art Compilation 2

Team and Development News

The team has been working well. We have been doing a lot of work. Jeno has been a busy bee working on item art while also finishing his uni assignments for his classes (note by Jeno: which is 3D, programming, PreProduction and physics programming)! Thomas has ordered a new Drawing pad to do some hand drawn master pieces, after sadly his old one was thrown in the fires of Morodor by Frodo!

The new secret music composer is still hiding in the depths of a top-secret Spacebit planet, conducting amazing new music, designed for the atmosphere of Spacebit. We have a feeling he could be unleashing a whole bunch of new Music to be displayed this week so stay tuned, as it will be a very loud update this week!
