A pre-release screenshot of a Dungeon room. A Dungeon in Starbound is a special location on a planet. Each dungeon is procedurally generated with randomized layout, loot, and enemies. Special types of dungeon include temples and crypts. For now it is said there will be one dungeon per habitable planet.
Each room in a dungeon is created based on a template image, selected from a set of several hundred variations. The pixels in this template image restrict what type of block should be created in a given location; possible restrictions include:
|Accepted blocks||Pixel colour|
The game engine generates corridors between these various rooms to create a unique dungeon layout, and fills the dungeon with loot and monster spawns.
