'Starship Corporation' Early Access Update Adds New Crew Member Type, Contracts and More - Screens

Starship Corporation is a real-time strategy game that contains 4 elements: Ship Design - Crew and AI Tactics - Ship Building - and Trade.

Starship Corporation lets players become intergalactic manufacturers of their dream spaceships, big or small.

Design and build spaceships for a hugely demanding galaxy-wide market. It is you who must decide which technologies to invest in, where to open new offices and where to establish new markets. Every little detail about your ships is up to you, from the interior layout to the location of each elevator, corridor and power line. Build your reputation by testing the mettle of your ship and crew in a series of real-time strategy missions to simulate emergency or combat situations, push your vessel to its limit and let the competition know just what they are up against.

The Artificial Humans’ update adds a new type of crew member: Cybernetic Organisms (CyO).

CyO’s do not require air, water, food, healthcare or life support. They can practice any profession and are built to last. If damaged, all they need to do is return to their pod. However, technological advancements such as these come at a price. CyO’s require lots of research and have a high production cost, and if they malfunction they are almost unstoppable. How will you handle a rampaging killing machine threatening to destroy the beloved starship you are building? A new crew management mission has been added that will test the counter-measures of your ship for just this type of emergency.

Decide for yourself if you want to strengthen your crew by adding an artificial human, or if you prefer human error over the threat of malfunctioning, rampaging CyO’s.

The update also adds 10 new contracts for completely automated ships to the market. The 60 contracts currently available in all different areas of space travel can now be approached in a new way, due to the introduction of CyO’s.

In addition to new content, several bug fixes took place. A detailed log of bugs fixed can be found on the Starship Corporation Steam community HUB here.
