* Wiki now available, and check out the below video for a walkthrough of many of the features.
This mod adds the Moon, Mars, and other solar system worlds, and gives modpack makers the ability to add their own dimensions with space survival elements. Each dimension can have its own gravity and skybox, and also require oxygen for players and mobs. A space suit can be filled with oxygen, or you can build a sealed base with the life support blocks. The moon is a hostile but iron rich world to mine while Mars has a bit more variety.
Build a crude rocket ship and fuel it with firework rockets. (Hold your Jump button to fly your ship). Blasting off into the sky from Earth will take you to the Moon. Using the resources on the Moon you will be able to build a more advanced rocket to take you further into space.
Make sure you bring some spare oxygen (follow the advancements to learn the basics). It is possible to make a safe environment in space using the life support system. Here is a basic setup with power and oxygen generators feeding the sealed life support block.
Currently Implemented Worlds
Reaching worlds beyond the moon requires addition steps, you will need to recruit help from the Rocket Scientist villager. He will provide the navigation plot needed for your Medium Rocket Ship to reach other planets. (Shift right click your ship with the plot to set your ship).
The bigger rocket needs boosters in addition to regular firework fuel. Build them with the Packing Machine and Redstone Motor:
Further advancement in the mod will require recruiting several other professions, see the wiki for more information.
Follow the achievements to construct the starship! The key when constructing it is to connect (with conduits) the main console to a power source block and one or more engine blocks, and then place Cosmic Crystals in the power source as a fuel. After you are able to navigate the ship, build as much of it up as possible, the size of the ship does not affect travel. Here is an example setup:
Use the console to navigate the solar system. When you are in beam range of a planet it will show up in green. The two gauges tell you temperature and pressure of the planet/moon.
Building starship package
* New method to initialize the starship has been released by crafting the Starship Assembly Rocket. Documentation in works.
To build the starship package, use the packing machine to add required items to it. Here is basic setup:
Place package in right slot, and ingredient in left. Power the motor and the progress will fill up.
The finished package should look like this:
Place that package in the Beamer and it will light up. Place and press a button, if everything goes well the package will be beamed away and the starship constructed.
More features have been added, including the Dome Constructor and Rocket Launch Station blocks.
Jupiter's moon, Europa is now available for travel. Its icy surface is barren of features and resources, but maybe there is more to this world? Construct a Transport Core line all the way to bedrock, and place a Transport Duct on top. Activate the top duct to see if there is something underneath. To return to the surface, activate the bottom portion of the Transport Core on the other side. It's a dangerous expedition, be prepared!
