For the record, I fully expect this thread to get shitposted to oblivion. And honestly, it deserves it. The overhyped flop of the early 2010's, and even today there's no anticheat, no admin commands, and no chance for a viable public server in the foreseeable future.

Yet even with all the bad design choices, it's still possible to have fun with shitty games. In my case, I'm enjoying an overhaul modpack called Troubled Waters, that attempts to make the universe grimdark. It does a decent enough job.

So, I know the novelty will eventually wear off, and I'll go right back to hating Starbound. But until then, I may as well milk as much fun out of a shitty game as I can manage.

Honestly? Yes. On the condition that you also have Frackin' Races, which makes each race actually have different attributes. I'm playing as a slime in my current Troubled Waters run, and I start the game with passive health regeneration and the ability to slither up walls and ceilings, with the tradeoff of a high hunger rate.

I wouldn't doubt it, tbh. The tl;dr is if they haven't already got your money, don't give it to them. Just pirate it.

On that note, I am willing to start up a Troubled Waters server, at least until some nigger eventually starts fucking shit up. I'll go ahead and toss the steam collection link in this post. The non-steam/pirated version of the modpack will be coming up as soon as I zip/upload it. Probably by my next post.

To better answer the question, Steam workshop says over 6000, and There's probably a mass effect race mod tbh.

My experience with this game feels lucky, with all I've heard. I had played the beta once, but I knew nothing of all the hype and promised content. When it released in full, I remembered I had it (I can't remember if a younger me stupidly pre-ordered it on a whim or if I got it some other way) and gave it a shot. All I knew to expect was "space Terraria" and in that respect I got everything I thought I would. Exploring new planets is fun, collecting new blocks is fun, helping the NPC villages on the planet I claimed as my home is fun, building up my crew was fun. I loved the vibe of the light-hearted space adventure spurned by a dark tragedy, and overall I just found it to be enjoyable. Even more-so than (current) Terraria. That all said, I can completely understand the hate and the anger. But I think that it's worth a pirate for fans of this type of game, if you can set aside the reputation it has.

Frackin' universe changes the minimum requirements to get your FTL working, so you only need to make it to the outpost-hub-thing. If that is still too much of the main quest for you, another player can just give you a working FTL drive.

The three people who've been on the server are pretty nice folks. There's probably a free FTL drive in it for you if you join, and I think I may have figured out an effective way to admin-teleport ships to other systems, so we can all be nearby without spending gorillions on fuel.

As a quick disclaimer, when you first make character and go in your ship, BE SURE TO PICK THE BUILD YOUR OWN SHIP OPTION. The default ships are utter garbage. That said, there are some things you should know about building ships.

>Do not even attempt to rebuild your ship unless you have both a gravity generator, and a means to no longer require breathing. As soon as you breach the hull, both gravity and oxygen stop working.

>Make sure you have a planet below you when rebuilding your ship. That way if you fuck something up and fall out of your ship, you can beam down and back up to fix it.

>FTL drives decrease time required to make jumps, at the cost of increased Mass. It never told me what more mass does, but my best guess is increased fuel costs for jumps.

>Forward Thrusters decrease Mass, but they take 2 Upgrade Modules each to build (among other things)

>Underside Thrusters increase Sublight/In-system speeds, but they take 1 Upgrade Module each to build (again, among other things)

>Finally, Crew Bunks increase your crew capacity, which is basically how many NPC followers you can have at once. Again, they take a bunch of stuff, including an Upgrade Module.

So yeah, THAT's why I need a fuckton of Upgrade Modules.

Originally, it was some vague thing about exploring and progression like early Minecraft or Terraria. Now it's nearly endlessly talk to a self-insert old woman and her power ranger friends in order to collect energon cubes in order to open a door in order to fight a dude in order to fight a tentacle monster in order to receive a thanks for playing post card. The story isn't fun nor interesting and it feels tacked on because it was. It's one of the things that irritates a lot of people who bought this eight hundred years ago.

Originally the entirety of the story was told through a few boss fights, NPC chatter, journals and examining items. That story was sort of few and far between and it worked well. You start as a refugee, or was it an explorer, or perhaps an agent of some military, it never made it explicitly clear who exactly you were which enabled some extra enjoyment from roleplaying. Now you are for sure a power ranger cadet who was on earth when it was taken by a calamity. This is just so you have a reason to give a shit about the power rangers and talk to the grandmollygos and collect the energon keys. This also separates you from your people and because races don't even have racial attributes (another thing they decided to remove) that means your race is entirely irrelevant other than aesthetically, as they aren't even real apex or glitch or whatever because they're federation fags.

It's moronic because they could have just omitted that and kept your mysterious past, allowing you to naturally stumble upon the gay hub and talk to those gay niggers and go "You know, you guys seem alright. Maybe I'll pitch in and help you save Humans and maybe other things from this monster." but nope! It is explicitly your duty to do so, you dumb fuck, did you think you had any choice at all? They also made it explicitly clear that all governments all over the place are generically evil and don't really have anything to do with anything, which shit all over this implicit collusion between the Apex and Avian governing bodies. Basically a lot of new lore put an end to a lot of interesting and enjoyable things, but I suppose that's neither here nor there.

Apex-anon hit the nail on the head. The main story is absolute garbage and must be avoided at all costs, and I will do everything in my power to help in this cause. I've been making spare FTL drives to give to new players to bypass the story, encouraging people to make their own lore with this Glitch Crusade, hell, I already admin-abused a full tank of fuel for a player just so they can warp closer to where the crusade's going down.

In other words, death to the official lore, and as far as my server is concerned, Glitch Crusade IS the official lore.

It's a shame the server's been pretty barren lately. The only people on in the past couple of days were me and a non-8chan friend. So I'll make things a bit easier by putting all the server info in one place:

>Starbound Hash: 099e44fa51972c6d18d68018ee5970c0348b4635

>Modpack: https://mega.nz/#!4V4ylIZZ!BewqOxpIkaHPl5rC-_QVTzFmg8o5QgnSYK8z2DhBuSA

>Server Info: port 21025

In addition, everyone gets a free full tank of fuel and a basic FTL drive (assuming you don't have a default ship) so they can more easily get to the pictured location, which is the closest thing to a player hub.

The first time ever getting to Area 6 is so good. Sadly it loses it's charm after seeing that getting there isn't that difficult, and makes Macbeth's boss no longer an alternative.

Also, why is Sector Z a thing?

Welp, I've been basically the only one on the server all weekend. I'm hoping it's because of the gamenight, and that we'll have people again now that it's over…

I'm installing anon, I might hop on soon

You know, I'm curious. I already saw and saved images of how a real life futanari's biology would looks like. So I'm thinking can a botanist and a biologist get together and devised a way on how would plants be like if they were able to basically function like animals.

I might be retarded, how do you install the troubled waters mod? I have all the pak files in a mods folder in the game directory, but the game won't recognize it in the ingame mod menu

I saw the connection, see the image.

I joined and everything disappeared. I'll figure it out in a second

711ff1  No.119065


Fuck, I misread that last bit. Did you try running as admin?

The issue is the mod won't register. I know because according to the author there should be a book that starts the RPG progression system in the crafting menu. I think it's because your file from the mega lacks a MODINFO file (pic related)

I'll try writing my own but this is literally my first time with the game so I might fuck up

Oh, are you using the steam modlist? Don't do that, use the zip. Steam workshop removed Frackin' Universe FOR SOME REASON. As you can imagine, this royally fucked everything up.

Another possibility is running starbound from the .exe rather than steam, as we had people on pirated copies who used the modpack just fine.

No I'm using your copies, I never bought this garbage. Can you post a screenshot of how your mod folder looks like? I feel like I am doing something basic wrong
