Summary

Starbound is currently in beta which means that the game is not complete. However mods are already being written for the game because the devs intend to release it with full modding support. The mods in this guide are currently being written for version 'Furious Koala'.

Note: The download links dont work yet.



Installation / How to Use

  1. Backup your entire Starbound directory. The easiest way is to send the entire folder to a zip file. This is your backup should the game installation gets corruped (and it will).
  2. Download the desired mods in the links above, or grab them from Starbound Nexus Mods.
  3. Make sure the mod is compatible with the current version of your Starbound. You can check this on the bottom right corner of the main game menu, the game launcher and also the *.modinfo file inside a mod. The current version of the beta is nicknamed 'Furious Koala' (as of February 2014).
  4. Unpack to your Starbound 'mods' folder in the installation directory.
  5. Launch the game and check your basic crafting menu for 'Pinkeh's Wares' vending machine (costs 1000 pixels). Deploy this item on your ship/base.
  6. Note: The vending machine will be blank if you haven't installed any of my additional mods. May patch this issue with some basic supplies later.

Starbound: Pinkeh's Wares



Mods: In Development

'Pinkeh's Wares' Vending Machine

Type: Vendor

Version: Furious Koala, working as of February 2014.

Description: A vending machine for my mods. You must have this mod installed in order to access any other items i create. The art is based on the Engineer's dispenser in Team Fortress 2. Right now it doesn't have a lot of items as I'm learning how to mod. It'll cost 1000 pixels to purchase from the basic crafting menu. You won't even need a crafting table.
