We are a PVP and Trade oriented server, with unique features found nowhere else in StarMade! Light vs Dark was originally founded in October of 2015 by Ironheld. The unique theme and focus on PVP allowed the server to grow and develop a dedicated following. The server has been recently transferred to STAR Industries and has undergone a complete overhaul. We have an active group of admins and server technicians to keep the server running as smoothly as possible for all players. Come join us on Discord or our forums for more information and to participate in our community!

Unique Server Features:
- Light, Dark, or Neutral alignment is mandatory, providing the basis for PVP and trade. Align with the "!align" command!
- We have a custom wrapper (by DestroyerOfWorlds) that is ever growing with new commands and in-game features. (Type !help in game)
- Our wrapper now has a built-in quest engine! We have a few quests for now and more will be coming soon!
- We have custom currency, with bronze, silver, and gold bars. These can be used in kiosk machines at the Hub to make purchases. These can be earned through quests and admin events!
- Starter Ships are provided for all players upon spawning. Just head to the Hub and spend your free starting bronze bars to get started right away!
- Bounty boards and Custom Quests are posted on the forums.
- Ships may have a Lojack 5000 placed on them, and our friendly bot Melvin will track them for you.. even if they are stolen or lost.
- Our storyline is posted on the StarDock!
