Overworld Space Station
|Day-night cycle duration||
20min (1 Overworld day)
The Space Station is a feature added in version 0.1.23. Each space station has a dimension of its own, but has no terrain and has a greatly reduced level of gravity. Currently space stations can be created only for The Overworld.
When this dimension is created, it only generates a small room attached to a flat platform for your Parachest to land on as well as for launching a rocket. The room and platform are constructed of Tin Decoration Blocks. The room can be expanded and built upon however you like to create your own custom space station. This station appears to be orbiting the Overworld which can be seen below the station. If you happen to fall off the station you will continue to fall to the Overworld.
Overworld Space Station dimension number is SPACESTATIONx, where x is a number greater than or equal to 2.
To create a space station, fly your Tier 1 or Tier 2 Rocket to space. You will then be given the option to create a space station in the Planet Selection Screen so long as you have the required materials in your inventory (required materials listed below).
The components below will assemble a basic space station comprised of a small main room with the roof and corners built, a platform where you can place a Rocket Launch Pad, and a Parachest containing your rocket and a small amount of left-over fuel that can be collected using an Empty Liquid Canister. The station does not have any sort of oxygen or other life support so you should prepare accordingly.
Some recommended supplies include:
- Oxygen Mask, Oxygen Gear, and Oxygen Tanks
- Food and Building Materials
- Oxygen Collectors, Oxygen Distributors, and Oxygen Compressors
- Trees, wheat, or other source to collect oxygen from
It is recommended that you read the oxygen tutorial.
Once you have the materials, grab your rocket and launch into space! Once the Planet Selection GUI shows up, select the "Create Space Station" button at the top of the screen. There should be a new option in the Planet Selection GUI with "Space Station" in its name (you may also rename your space station on this screen after it has been created). Select it and hit the "Go to Dimension" button to go to your Space Station.
If you are still using the old Galacticraft, the materials required to create a space station depend on the prerequisite mod you installed, either IndustrialCraft 2, Thermal Expansion or Basic Components.
The Overworld Space Station's day-night cycle is synchronized with The Overworld's, and is therefore 20 minutes long, made up of 10 minutes of daylight and 10 minutes of night.
Mobs of any type, hostile or not, do not naturally spawn in the space station regardless of light level or block type. You can however keep animals in the space station as long as you provide them oxygen in order to keep them alive.
On Multiplayer, you have to invite other players to your space station first, in order for them to be able to join you.
|Invite other player to your space station||/ssinvite [Player]||micdoodle8.mods.galacticraft.core.command.GCCoreCommandSpaceStationAddOwner|
|Remove other player from your space station||/ssremove [Player]||micdoodle8.mods.galacticraft.core.command.GCCoreCommandSpaceStationRemoveOwner|
Both commands are OP only by default. You will other have to be an OP or have the appropriate permission node to be able to use the command.
