Today Chucklefish Games announced a brand new feature that will be appearing in their game Starbound. Starting with update 1.3, players will be able to create their very own space stations.

All players will need to do is send up a probe, and your station will be deployed. When the station starts, it will have an entrance for your mech, as well as a teleporter. Of course, it can be expanded with a variety of different modules.
