Starfield ship manufacturers
There are a ton of Starfield ship manufacturers creating everything from habs and landers to engine modules for your perfect ship.
Starfield ship manufacturers are companies with unique designs for different spaceship parts. We’ve already glimpsed several of these in the Starfield gameplay trailer, and it looks like there will be dozens of different manufacturers to choose from in the final game.
While we don’t know exactly what the difference between each company will be, it’s possible that each manufacturer will have its own design ethos and style, plus distinct bonuses or even set bonuses for using multiple parts on the same ship. It’s also possible that ship manufacturers will work like Starfield factions, and that you can complete missions for them to unlock special modules.
Here are all known Starfield ship manufacturers:
- Nova Galactic
- Horizon Defense
- Taiyo Astroneering
- Stroud Eklund
We’ve only seen a limited list of modules, but so far we know the different modules include landers, engines, habs, tanks, weapons, reactors, cockpits, shields, and much, much more. Manufacturers might specialize in different areas, but it appears that some manufacturers create all sorts of different modules – The Deimos and Nova Galactic company logos can be spotted several times throughout the Starfield gameplay reveal.
Dogstar has only been seen across the tops of some cockpit screens and modules and may not be a fully fledged ship manufacturer, but we’ll update this as soon as we know for sure.
Each module can be painted however you like, and different manufacturers can be mixed and matched too. We’ve also got a guide to the different Starfield ship types in the game, but while different models appear to have varied base stats, it looks like the ship manufacturers will actually play a more significant role in how your craft performs.
Customizing your ship
Whether you’re mixing and matching your ship components, Starfield ship customization – as seen in the Starfield showcase – will require skills and resources to unlock and craft modules. We already know a number of planets rich in materials just for this purpose, so you might want to plan your Starfield outpost early using one of our guides.
