FrackinUniverse Wiki


Frackin' Universe allows a default ship or vice versa without starting a new character.

Once you've selected the Build your ship option, all ship tiles are now unprotected and can be edited with your matter manipulator at will, included hull blocks. Be careful, however: if there is no background block behind you, there is no breathable oxygen and no gravity. Gravity can be generated through a ship gravity generator. And if you fall out of your ship, you can become potentially stuck floating in 0 G if you are not currently orbiting a planet and able to beam down (or have advanced techs). This will require use of admin commands or /suicide to fix.

If you choose to build your ship, there are some changes to what you need to do to get it functioning.

After getting off the starting planet, you will run the Erchius mission as normal, and bring your 20 Erchius Crystal to Penguin Pete. However, the Erchius Crystal will stay in your inventory, and you will need to craft a small FTL drive before the ship can be piloted.

After crafting the small FTL drive, you will learn how to craft the regular sized one, but only one functional FTL drive can be placed at any one time.

Ship Size will add mass to your vessel requiring more fuel to move it. Additional thrusters will reduce the mass. The ship level is 2050 sectors (blocks) across, almost equivalent to a small world (3000).
