Novaquark developers have been talking about this for a while, but now there are details on the PvP space territory they are working on dual universe Athena update.
They add what they call Alien Space Core units that you can find scattered outside safe zones. The alien cores generate resources and anyone who captures them can get a build platform. You can then harvest the resources the cores generate through brand new Space Mining Units and another addition called The Relic Plasma Extractor. When a player arrives at a core and claims ownership, they can use it like a normal one and build a base around it. You can place space mining units and relic plasma extractors and start gathering resources.
You’ll want to use a new item, the Space Unit Shield Generator, to protect what you’ve built. These can be customized to defend against different types of damage, but they have no venting function. Instead, they will be locked when they reach 60% and a countdown will start at 18 hours or more. Other systems, such as mounted weapons, will also be banned during this time and the timer will not be publicly viewable for the time being. But when you view the construct, you can see the remaining time. They create both stakes and opportunities for strategy. The new items, the Space Mining Units, Space Unit Shield Generators, and Relic The Relic Plasma Extractor will all be craftable, tradeable, and sellable.
The team also changed the behavior related to a construct’s maximum speed. The heavier the ship, the lower the top speed it will have. This should help balance the mission system and affect PvP tactics as smaller ships can catch up to heavier ones.
Novaquark also introduces the first electronic warfare weapon, called the Stasis Weapon. It uses its own ammo to reduce the maximum speed of ships you target. It can help you slow down a ship or even put some distance between you and a ship trying to pursue you. These will also be craftable.
