StarUI Ship Builder improves the ship builder for usage on PC. Compact style, sort-able columns, filter panel, category list, variant list, vertical upgrade list and many more Quality-of-Life additions.



  • Optimized for PC
  • Compact style - See more information at once
  • Adds data columns to the ship part list - Over 30 different data columns you can choose!
  • The standard config contains the most important columns for every category out-of-the-box
  • See the Damage Per Second and Damage Per Power point for all weapons
  • Sort any column with a simple click - Toggle asc/desc by another click
  • Adds a full functional vertical category list beside the main list - Navigate via click, Q/T, A/D keys or LShoulder/RShoulder buttons
  • Adds a variant list popup, showing you all ship part's variants in a well-aligned list at once - No need to go through them one-by-one any more!
  • Improved vertical upgrade list, now see what you can improve without the need to scroll vertically
  • Improved ship part item card comparison - Downgrading your components are now shown as red numbers!
  • Clipboard function for the color picker - Copy and paste the color set (all 3 colors) at once
  • Optimized key binds and added keys to many interface parts - making the interface just feels much more intuitive
  • Added button hints to show you available functions (like ship part multi-select and weapon assignment hidden in flight check)
  • Allows custom ship part icons for mods (For mod authors: You can find the how-to here)
  • Increases the frame-rate to 60 fps - Optional variants in 30fps and 120fps are available too
  • Wide-screen support out-of-the-box
  • Various bug fixes of the vanilla interface code
  • Contain no plugins and no quests - Absolutely safe to install and uninstall at any time!
  • Doesn't affect the possibility to get Steam achievement
  • Works with Steam and Game Pass (X-Box) version
  • Partial controller support - You can see all features, but can't control the filter panel or use the variant list popup
  • Completely customizable - Customize with StarUI Configurator or via the full-commented INI file




  • Simply install with Vortex or Mod Organizer 2 (for manual installation open the spoiler below)
  • Enable Archive Invalidation in your INI

Alternate manual installation

  • Copy the folders Interface\  and StarUI Configurator\ from the zip into your Starfield\Data\ folder (where the ba2 files are) - ignore folders fomod and Optional
  • For some people that folder won't work, copy the files to your Documents\My Games\Starfield\Data\ folder in that case (create Data\ if it doesn't exist)
  • (Optional) 30fps or 120fps version: After doing the above steps copy the files from the appropriate sub-folder in Optional\ and overwrite the existing ones.




Use the StarUI Configurator to configure all settings with an easy-to-use graphical interface.

Manual configuration
You can also do it manually - Everything can be controlled in the INI Data\Interface\StarUI Ship Builder (default).ini (or your own StarUI Ship Builder.ini)
Don't worry,  the file is completely commented and easy to use - you will find your setting pretty quick!

; ==========================================
; Configuration file for StarUI Ship Builder
; ==========================================
;
; Allows you to configure many different settings for StarUI Ship Builder.
;
; Position
; --------
; The position is specified based on a 1920x1080 layer. If you have another resolution, it will
; automatically transformed into the position on your monitor.
;
; Anchors
; -------
; Define a point on an element for various features (like as alignment for the item card, so in
; which direction an item card should be drawn or at which point the leading line attaches to)
;
; Valid values: TopLeft, TopRight, BottomLeft, BottomRight, {HorizontalOffset}% {VerticalOffset}%
;
; Examples for free percent values:
;   0% 0%     - Equals TopLeft
;   100% 0%   - Equals TopRight
;   100% 100% - Equals BottomRight
;   50% 50%   - The center of the shape
;   0% 25%    - This will position the anchor on the left side on 1/4 height.
;
; Tips
; ----
; * You can edit this file while the game is running. A simple close/re-open the ship builder interface
;   load the new configuration!
; * Copy this file and rename the copy to "StarUI Ship Builder.ini". Then change your settings in the
;   new file. The new file won't be overwritten by mod updates!
; * Use StarUI Configurator to edit all settings in an easy-to-use graphical interface.

; Show variant popup after clicking on a ship part that have variants. Only available for Mouse-Click (cause the game engine doesn't allow to re-map the action key)
bShowVariantPopup = 1

  • You hear a selection sound while StarUI Ship Builder scans data of categories, ship parts and variants - The sound is hard-coded in the engine, so it can't be prevented. Also the 3D-preview changes in the process. See it as a feature, you can see and hear StarUI Ship Builder doing the search work for you!
  • The key actions are hard-coded in the game engine, so sadly the main keys for activation and going-back can't be re-mapped. So you have to click the ship part to view the variant list (E doesn't work) and you can't close the popup with TAB (will leave the list).




StarUI Inventory - Improves all inventory screens for use on a PC. Many Quality-of-Life features and completely customizable.
StarUI HUD - Customize your HUD. Relocate, resize and recolor widgets. Item tag icons, loot list item cards, Loot-O-Meter and many more features.
StarUI Workbench - Improves all workbenches with columns, comparison, compact design, individual layout, Quality-of-Life features and more.
StarUI Outpost - Improves the outpost interface with a new build menu, better key handling and many Quality-of-Life features.
StarUI Ship Builder - Improves the ship builder interface with sort-able columns, category and variant list, as well as plenty Quality-of-Life features
