A Starfield player named Velvetio landed in a space dock and noticed that the player character would glide their right hand against part of the ship’s interior while exiting the cockpit. The character glides their hand on the ship’s interior to support themselves while walking downstairs and into the space dock. This amusing detail quickly caught the attention of the Starfield community since it highlights the work that Bethesda animators did to ensure an immersive space-faring experience. However, this detail may vary greatly from player to player due to factors pertaining to a ship’s cockpit size and interior layout. Although many appreciate Starfield’s attention to detail in this aspect, some fans wish their ship’s cockpit was more immersive.
Some Starfield players such as Swordbreaker925 wish their characters did not clip through the cockpit while disembarking onto a planet. For example, the Nova Galactic ship’s cockpit contains a giant metal bar that characters may pass through during the exit animation, so players are upset with the lack of immersion this particular cockpit brings. Additionally, others have noticed that the player character’s shoulder will clip through Barrett’s Frontier ship, which is one of the free ships that players may earn in Starfield. Fans place the blame on Bethesda for not noticing these cockpit design oversights in development, but one user named Ralathar44 notes that these issues may have arisen while the studio was working on the final build.
Velvetio’s discovery shows how immersive the cockpit experience may be, but some players may need to spend extra time and credits while customizing their ship in Starfield in order to create their favorite ship layout. Fortunately, the ship building feature offers a lot of creative freedom, allowing players to create submarines, pirate ships, and even a Transformers mech in Starfield.
Starfield is available now for PC and Xbox Series X|S.
