When will we be unable to beathe on our ship? I want to see either some encouraged hydroponics or less time spent on the ship using up that precious oxygen.

That'd be neat, but I'm not holding my breath. :v
Honestly though, it seems like a hassle, and shipfarming is ALREADY a good idea because the ship is always loaded.

One of the previews posted showed a "meteor shower" rain type that destroyed chunks of terrain. It's official folks, ground bases are now the most pointless waste of time ever.

And then, they will be weaponized. Like everything in this game, from kittens to babies, everything is a potential device of murder.
So if baseless speculation is all we have, we might as well treat it like fact.

I find it unlikely that every planet is going to be hit by meteors.

Though it would be nice to know that sort of thing before you start investing in a base.
Build a dome?
This depends on how the meteor damage works. If it 'mines' blocks the same way other stuff does, rather than something lazy like what the UFO seems to do, then some of the tougher dungeon materials could very well serve as a meteor-proof dome and make for some pretty awesome gameplay.

Eh, even if it did work the way the ufo did, it would have to have a limit to what it could break, or every meteor would burrow to the core. therefore it would have to be unable to break say, stone, or only penetrate 10 blocks or so. In which case you could just have an ablative shield say 20 blocks thick above your base and just replace it after a meteor shower.

Do we even know if they're going to damage blocks? For all we know they only damage living things.

Also I assume they're going to be rare or only on special planet types or caused by something, so its not going to be that big of an issue I assume.

To be fair, having challenges to build a base around would only make it more interesting. Right now you can just build a square out of wood with cheap doors and its fine. Adversity gives the opportunity for creative innovation.

I'll build my ground base deep underground, then.

It turns out I did have a back-up of my ship, on my other character.

One small problem; This back-up was before I had put any of my furniture down. Normally this wouldn't bother me, since it meant that I still had most of my ship. But there is also one large problem.

There is no captain's chair.

Derr. Mod one is as a craftable? I mean, the build your own ship must have a method of moving the chair and fuel thing around or something

It just marks the chair, fuel port, tech station, and storage locker as moveable, it doesn't allow you to make them. Though I haven't much use for the ship without all of my loot in it, and this character is barely used, so I'm probably just going to abandon it.

Also, while poking around the assets I found that every race has their own unique looking captain's chair, but for some reason every character I've made only uses the Apex one.

... the butterfly boost tech makes you a lot more mobile. A lot. Just... I just found it, circumvented the planet I was on in maybe 3-5 minutes, while having midair dog fights with passing birds. Kinda' insane. "Skipping" through the air, you barely ever have to land...

E: So very easy to outpace the chunk loading, though >_<

Even straight up. It's kinda' silly to get an occasional rest in a constant upward butterfly skip because you've gotten stuck on empty space.

I can't seem to find what the point of the targeted blink tech is. You can't go through blocks or doors with it, and doing it rapidly consumes a lot more energy than gravity bubble or butterfly boost.
