Welcome to the StarDrive Wiki, an official online encyclopedia for StarDrive that anyone can edit!

Black Box[]

Blackbox is an ongoing non profitable effort of several programmers and designers to improve Stardrive 1 code base. What unites us is the love for Stardrive 1 game and our wish to make it the game it should have been (we do not care for Stardrive 2). Blackbox work focuses on code refactor, performance enhancements and new features. Several years ago the original developer granted us permission to decomplie the code and work on it. Star Drive 1 is now being updated actively.

Currently, the only mod supported with Blackbox is Combined Arms. It is being developed along side Blackbox and contains massive content, like new hulls, new tech trees, building and many more, Combined Arms is based on the Combo mod.

We have created a new wiki page for Blackbox. It will contain a lot more info on our work and progress.
