    1.0 wiped all the old colonies. Some are old and are unlikely to be rebuilt, however some may be rebuilt.

    If you own any of the colonies in the colonies subforum and want the subforum to be kept around, please let us know by making a post in this thread.

    With Starbound 1.0 around the corner, it appears that old world files are not compatible with new world files. There is almost certainly going to be a full server wipe, sadly. The old world files will be available to download over FTP once we make the upgrade to Starbound 1.0.

    You may wish to keep a copy of the current version of Starbound if you want to review old worlds.

    There is an excellent guide here on how to backup your current version of Starbound: https://www.orionsedge.com/index.php?threads/important.1401/

    Obviously you don't want to start building now,...

    Due to personal reasons, some members of staff have elected to retire their positions and as a result, I have taken charge as Administrator of OE. I have experience in moderation, but I will admit that being the head of a server is new to me, and I will probably end up learning as I go. That said, I will do my best to be impartial, fair, mature, and community minded. The rules and setting as they are will remain unchanged unless necessary. I look forward to going on adventures with all of you, and hope to see you all have fun on Orion's Edge!

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask in...

    Users may submit new lore, or revision suggestions of existing lore, to be made part of the official server setting. Once a user submission is posted, if it meets the server standards, it will be given a seal of approval and integrated into the official lore forum by a staff member, with the original author(s) credited below the version history.

    Lore can be anything; from racial traditions, to new technologies, to food delicacies, to history. Your imagination is the limit!...

    Recently we've discovered that some of the emails sent out by the Xenforo forum software have been blocked by certain email hosts like Hotmail, leading to accounts not being able to be verified.

    We have fixed this by routing our emails through Amazon SES, so if you have had issues creating forum accounts, please try again.

    The server has been updated with the following features:
    • Worlds can now have descriptions that explain its setting and/or rules. Entering a world with a description set (such as Saiph's Landing) will send a message the entering player.
      If you want a world registered or a description modified, please use Staff Contact.
    • Monster spawning and dungeon generation have been enabled. If you need monster spawns disabled for a world, please contact a staff member (they can use the /disableSpawning command).
      Do not roleplay wiping out entire USCM bunkers or Miniknog labs. We'll disable...

    We now have a TeamSpeak 3 server, available at:


    Feel free to use it for whatever you like, it doesn't have to be Starbound related (like Path of Exile ;)). If you need a channel created, ask a staff member.

    The server has been updated with some useful new commands and features. We've also discovered that our automated world backups has not been functioning, and unfortunately some player builds were lost on the Wreck colony. We have fixed the issue and have made some changes to ensure that it will not happen again.
    • "/oe list" has been renamed to "/scry"
    • "/oe help" has been renamed to "/oehelp"
    • Players are now allowed to have spaces in their names.
    • Players are no longer allowed to have double quotes (the " symbol) in their names.
    • Server autoreset increased to 180 minutes...

    Greetings everyone, I’m the new head administrator for Orion’s Edge. We appreciate your patience as we approach the date of the relaunch. The staff is currently undergoing changes, and we hope to bring on some fresh faces in order to help streamline the relaunch process. There are still a few things that need to be done regarding building the spawn, and finishing writing up species/server lore, so please bear with us! If any of you feel like you could contribute to any of these things or review applications, feel free to apply for staff by posting a thread in...
