Starship update! See update notes at bottom.
GeckoLib (Fabric) 3 is now required for anyone updating from previous version.
This mod adds the Moon and Mars dimension 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 moon base with the life support blocks. This mod is designed to be played alongside a tech mod like Reborn, but can be played on top of vanilla as well. 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. (Use UP and DOWN arrows by default to engage and disengage the rocket). Blasting off into the sky will take you first to the Overworld's Orbit where there is not much to do. Continue climbing towards the moon above you will take you there. Using the resources on the Moon you will be able to build a more advanced rocket to take you further into space.
Follow the advancements if you get lost! (Start by crafting a regular firework rocket).
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.
If this mod is enjoyed I plan to add more default planets/moons. Configuration files are located in the /agape directory for any customizations of the moon or user added dimensions. Skybox textures can be placed directly in the jar under the /environment subfolder.
Update 6 Info
Reaching Mars 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 Packer and Manual Crank:
Update 7 info
Ganymede now available for travel, find a new rare element on its surface. Resources found here will be very important for the next update.
Update 10 info
Mercury now available for travel, equip an improved space suit before you land on this hot planet. Not many natural resources will be found here, but mysterious space debris litters the surface. Maybe with the help of the Scavenger villager you can get something useful from the debris.
Follow the achievements to construct the starship! This is very work in progress, however it is playable now in survival. 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. Only current planets can be beamed to for now, I plan to add more each update.
