Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Starbound Thread: 1.2 Vault Update

Heya guys! It's been awhile, but there's a new update for the game! It's the 1.2 update! This one adds some post game content so you have more to do after you beat it! The new features include:



Ancient Vault


        Players who have completed the main storyline can visit a mysterious trader on the Outpost who will send them on a quest to activate and enter the Ancient Gateways found floating in some systems


        These gateways provide access to Ancient Vaults: challenging procedural dungeons left by the ancients, filled with dangerous guardians (including procedural bosses!) and fantastic lost technologies




Terraforming


        Using powerful devices acquired from the Ancient Vaults along with a new Essence currency, you can now transform regions or whole planets into entirely different biomes


        Terraformers can be used to expand a region across a planet’s surface, replacing natural blocks, objects and plant life, and eventually changing the type of the planet itself


        Microformers are consumable single-use terraformers which provide even more region types to add to your worlds




Weapon Upgrades

        Use the ancient anvil available at the end of Ancient Vaults and spend Essence to upgrade your outdated legendary weapons, opening up many new options for endgame combat styles




Elemental Damage

        Monsters now have resistance and weakness to elemental damage types, making your choice of weapons more important than ever



Holiday Spirit


        Celebrate the holidays with the variety of festive items bought from Space Santa at the Outpost!



...Or you can just watch the video to find out what they are.
