There is now avaliable in game an option to paint decals over the main hull. Player can place premade shapes and logos or just write some text over the ship. There is also a palette to choose up to 16 colors and 3 filters. Player can add as well their own images by just copy them into a folder named 'Userdefault'.
Shields is another Module type that will prevent direct damage to spaceship, but will not have effect on entire ship. In another words, player must strategical choose what to protect and were to place the shield or a group of shield.
This is how it works
Video has low quality due to my laptop specs but all is HD at 60fps.

A weapon its just another kind of Module. Before just placing a weapon over the ship hull, player needs to search for the better place to put it, since all weapons have their own litmits with shooting angles and ranges. Player can assign a key to activate each weapon or just assign a key to all of them.
All weapons type are full set and are categorized like this:
All types are subdivided in subtypes, with special atributes. (Warheads and projectiles can be customized in game)
As said before Nodes(Structure) and Modules are the principal components to build a ship. Nodes will build the 'body' while Modules will add extra features and behaviors like maximum speed, acceleration, radar range and alot more.
Modules can only be placed over primitive Nodes (cubes) and some of them (like engines) can only be put in certain faces of the Nod:
"The game is set in year 490 AE (After Earth). Solar system as we know is dead and got named by 'The Source', the cradle of mankind.
Humans rule over galaxies but a new threat forced them to abandon every colony and draw back to The Source.
At The Source a massive portal is about to be complete, and save humankind, by transporting them to the other side of universe and start all over again."
The main objective of this game is to explore a unknow part of the universe. Player can join campains, harves resources and trade stuff. instead of just buying better ships player will have to upgrade his own spaceship.
Every Spaceship is made of Nodes and Modules. With this editor, in a Minecraft style, almost any shape can be done:
