Parts are the bread and butter of Cosmoteer's Gameplay, allowing players to create the ships of their dreams. There are multiple ship types, including Terran (the default), Asteroids, Ancient and Megaroids, each with their own unique set of parts.
The Terran ship type is the main type that players build with in Cosmoteer. This is a fairly standard type of ship, requiring crew to operate parts and deliver resources to parts that need it. The ship scale is 1.0x, so a 1x1 part is 1m2 in Area.
