V1.09 Launched, Basic Modding!

I bring to you the first of a series of patches for Interstellaria. This initial patch will allow for the basic modding and editing of the game, as well as several critical bug fixes.

I set out updating interstellaria for the first year and a half after release. Sadly, the games faults were too much and it didn't perform very well. I was not generating income to continue work in game development, and I had to instead focus on my full time job. I had failed, and was considering giving up. I put together some little small demos here and there to try to get back into game development, but ultimately was not hopeful in securing funds.

Surprisingly I had been contacted a few times the last update here and there by people who did love the game. I appreciated that despite its many flaws, they enjoyed the experience. Its because of you I began working on a new project (which is still very early in development) as well as "slow boating" updates on Interstellaria, much of which involved overhauls of deep outdated systems. This patch, and future patches, are for those fans who appreciate the universe I built and honestly inspired me to try again.

-MODDING - all items, ships, races, weapons, traits, and enemies are editable via XML. You can either directly edit them, or place an edited copy in the "mod" folder and it will automatically load. placing PNG's in the mod folder will also be loaded at run time for custom graphics.
-Added a popup when you try to travel, and you don't have navigation manned or engines with energy
-You can now equip items, use medpacks, etc... regardless of how close you are to the ship

About This Game

Interstellaria is a real time space-exploration sim and crew management game.

Command a fleet of vessels wandering the galaxy for adventure and profit! You’ll be forced to make tough decisions as you face hostile starships, crippling space anomalies, and intriguing aliens. When your fleet faces certain doom, should you direct your crew to make critical repairs, or report to their stations and boost your fleet?

Land your flagship on an alien world, allowing your crew to gather valuable resources for you— but be sure to equip them with powerful armor and weapons! It’s a dangerous universe out there, and although many helpful creatures will trade or share valuable information with you, many more will attack on sight!


  • Tactical crew management. Direct crewmen to put out fires, or repair damaged equipment. Posting them to their station boosts your fleet's speed and combat abilities.
  • Customize your ship with helpful stations. Allocate power to important systems or simply outfit your ship with lasers and put all power into weapons!
  • Your crew eats, sleeps, and needs entertainment. Each one develops unique traits throughout the game that help or hurt the mission. Various outfits and weapons can be found to customize them further.
  • Fleet-based combat. Instead of controlling a single ship, you control multiple ships each with their own crew.
  • Fully explorable galaxy, no areas are off limits. Each region has unique ships, aliens, and mysteries to find.
  • Land your ships on planets! Each world is a new experience and has special rewards for you and your crew.
  • Featuring an all-original soundtrack from the incredibly popular chiptune musician Chipzel.
