Sometimes the desolate wasteland of space could use a friend or two, and Starbound has multiplayer capabilities for just the occasion. Dying of starvation isn’t so bad when you have a Player 2 by your side, also dying, so here’s how to invite friends to a group.
First thing’s first, you’ll need to be on a multiplayer server with your friends. From the Starbound main menu, click “Multiplayer” and then type in the server address you’re looking to join. There’s a handy list of community servers over here, and if you just want to play on your local server, type in 127.0.0.1.
Once you’re in the game, you’ll be automatically placed in your ship. Head to the upper left of your screen, near your player avatar, and click on the plus sign. Enter the name of your friend(s) to invite them to a party. Once you’re all in a group, party members can click on the avatars of each other to teleport to that group member’s ship.
