Habitat receives Steam Workshop support
4gency, the indie developer announced that Habitat has received Steam Workshop support. This support now grants players a chance to create their own unique space junk. They can also utilize the Steam Workshop to download other pieces of customized space junk in their game.
In order to celebrate this support, Habitat is currently 40% off on Steam, and will remain so all week long.
The support utilizes an in-game browsing interface, allowing players and creators to quickly find the custom items that they have created or subscribed to on the Steam Workshop. This interface also makes re-skinning items quite easy.
Creators can utilize the in-game editing interface to import FBX models, select a custom texture, assign collision volumes, weld points for attachment to Habitat space stations, and even set properties such as mass and resource production to their creations. Once they have finished, they can save their item either locally for in-game use, or share it via the Steam Workshop so that others can utilize it.
“This is just the first version of Steam Workshop support,” 4gency states, “and more customizations and functionality will continue to come out with future updates. This update also includes a number of gameplay improvements and bug fixes.”
