Update # 1.1.8 - Hacking game fix

At long last
Hey, all. Sorry for the delay in updates.
we're working hard to still make this game even more awesome.

Delay reason:
We have another project going to be able to keep us afloat since star shelter alone can't do that, so that has been stealing some of our time.
we're still very keen on improving the game but it might take a bit longer between updates now.

  • Salvaged pressurizer reappears on reload
  • nano box storage number wasn't always accurate
  • Loss of suit speed upgrades after a restart
  • Shields were too small
  • Locker number font too big
  • Comets spawn too often later on.
  • upgrading storage space bug
  • Salvage things in the space station is now slower
  • Inconstant/broken hacking game.
  • Multiple comets were incoming at once during the warnings
  • Sleep text on the bed was backward.
  • Improved climbing colliders in the space station.

  • Base nano storage is increased to 75
  • Decreased research cancel button size.
  • Suit start storage is reduced to 50
  • Increased flashlight range and reduced the radius.

Things we're working on now:
Grab Issues
We're reworking the grab/interact mechanic system in order to fix the grab issues people are having. it's also going to improve the physics interactions.

While we have to go through all the interactions we're also looking at multiplayer support.
We're not fully confirming multiplayer yet but it's quite likely now since we had a successful test where we could see each other. We don't have an ETA on that though.

If you have any bugs make sure to post them here:

Thanks for playing and thanks for the patience!

About This Game

star Shelter

Star shelter is one of the first VR games with classic survival mechanics. You're stranded in a mysterious graveyard of abandoned ships, the only way out is to repair a broken spaceship.
You have to scavenge for materials and plants to repair and arm your spaceship.

Keep your oxygen, power, and hunger in the green. Grow plants, build solar panels and other objects to generate what you need.
Climb around the zero gravity but don't rely on your thrusters to much, they are fueled by the same oxygen you breathe.

Scavenge the wreckages of spaceships and be wary of hazards.

current Features:

  • Randomly generated environments and spaceships.

  • Use the crafting to build, arm and improve your Space station.

  • Grow plants in your spaceship to generate oxygen and fruit.

  • Voiced AI to guide you and keep you aware of hazards.

  • Destructible/Repairable base, maintaining your spaceship is as important as eating.

  • Innovative UI, interactive holograms to navigate menus/hack, "AR" labels on objects.

  • Shoot down drones and turrets that stand in your way.

  • Classic survival mechanics - Hunger, oxygen, power, sleep.
