- Starfield fans are experiencing a frustrating issue with ship modifications, where items are being duplicated instead of being placed in the cargo.
- The community has discovered a temporary solution that involves sleeping outside the ship for a long period of time on specific planets.
- Despite regular updates from Bethesda, players’ growing dissatisfaction is evident from deteriorating reviews on Steam, leaving the future of Starfield uncertain.
If the numerous bugs discovered since launch weren’t enough, Starfield fans have come across yet another issue, this time related to ship modifications. Notably, the problem pertains to a feature that Starfield fans have been demanding changes to for quite a while now, but it seems like the latest update has further exacerbated it instead.
Starfield offers comprehensive ship modification mechanics to its players, and while it was critically acclaimed by the community at large, it does come with its fair share of flaws. One of the most annoying aspects that players have to deal with is how the game deals with items lying around the ship. If players want to modify their ships in Starfield, all of the items get placed in the cargo hold. Over the past few months, many have voiced their concerns over the issue, with some even suggesting that they would stop decorating their ships or modifying them to ensure that they don’t have to place all the items back from their cargo hold. Now, it seems like things have gotten even worse.
Rumor: Starfield Could Be Coming to PS5
Recent rumors from multiple industry insiders suggest that Bethesda’s 2023 title Starfield may be making its way to PlayStation 5.
Starfield’s Latest Update Makes Modifying Ships A Nightmare
A post on the Starfield subreddit highlights how a player initially thought that Bethesda had finally revamped the mechanic as part of Starfield‘s major February update, and things stay in place after modifications are made to a ship. However, it seems like that is far from the case, as things are now getting duplicated instead of being sent to the cargo hold. The Redditor goes on to underscore how much more frustrating it is to clean up the entire ship of duplicate items.
Thankfully, it seems like the community has come up with a makeshift solution to solve this bug. Apparently, waiting for long enough in Starfield cleans up the ship, but there is a catch. To pull this off, players will need to first head to a planet or moon where the day is long. Both Kurtz and Venus seem to be good locations for this. After reaching there, players need to sleep five times, although some have suggested that it can be done in 13 hours if they are on Venus. Once players have slept for long enough outside the ship, the items should get cleaned up.
While this workaround does solve the problem, fans are still disappointed that one of the most pivotal aspects of the game hasn’t been fixed to date. Despite the developer’s incessant efforts to patch the bugs, the community’s growing dissatisfaction with the game is quite evident from Starfield‘s deteriorating reviews on Steam. With Bethesda planning to release updates for the game every six weeks, it remains to be seen whether the developers can turn things around for their flagship title.
Developed by Bethesda Game Studios, Starfield is a sci-fi action role-playing game where players interact with multiple factions, engage in combat, customize their main character and ship, as well as explore a universe that features over 100 systems and 1,000 planets.
