Update 21 - The Crew & Water (Beta Available)
Thu, 13 February 2020


Hey Everyone,

...Update 21 is now available in Beta. We expect this update to go live on Wednesday February 19th, after few days of beta testing...

We have a major update today packed with new features. First of all, introducing an all new Clan system – renamed to Crews. Aside from fixing the bugs of the old system, this new system gives a lot more options - different rankings, kicking members, seeing online status and a lot more. More options to customize your Crew is coming soon.

The second major change is Degrading Claims and Base Raiding. All base components now show a health bar, and can be destroyed by any weapon. In addition all base components degrade over time and need to be repaired. Empty Makeshift Claims without a base will degrade in 1 week. All other base components degrade over a month, taking a little damage every 3 days. We will be balancing and improving both systems based on players feedback.

Last but not least the new water and swimming system is finally complete. With beautiful new lake and ocean water, and swimming both over and underwater. All the vehicles and horse is now amphibious as well. This finally opens way for us to start implementing water base construction, rafts, as well as under water exploration mining and gathering. But no rush there - bugs first:)

Important about Reclaim System
It`s time to clean up the game worlds from hundreds of abandoned claims and vehicles all over the system. To do this we set a two week timer from now, during which you will need to approach your claims and vehicle, and press F key when prompted. This is a one time process, and not something you`ll need to do in the future. The vehicle and claims that were not re-claimed during the two weeks will be removed (March 1st will be the day we clean the servers from un re-claimed vehicles and claims.

How to access beta update
You can access the 21st update beta, by right clicking on Stars End in the Steam library, selecting Properties, and then Beta tab. There is a permanent Beta PvP server that doesn`t get reset. Keep in mind Beta has it`s own worldwide server that keeps all the progress and is now reset


And so lets take a look at Update # 21:

Major Additions and Critical Fixes
