Asked, whether ships will be faction-agnostic(not limited to a single faction), Bunthius, CPO of the Star Atlas, told members of the exclusive Foundation Channel on the Star Atlas Discord: “Yes, primarily it’s just for expanded universe lore info. But when manufacturing new ships, the blueprints rewarded will likely be tied to the faction region the player is leveling up their ship manufacturing license. But that will come much later when full ship crafting comes online.”
A short and sweet issue this week, as news and reveals from the team have quieted down a bit. Of course, we’re getting close to the big Community Week event (Feb 26 – March 1), and it’s widely expected that there will be some interesting announcements (if not actual releases) during that week! What we do have for this week is a new JNavigating Star Atlas episode, Joni nominations to vote on, and more DAC stats!
