CN Survivalist: Resurrection v3.4.15


  1. ColonolNutty
    CN Survivalist Mod: Resurrection
    Needs New Character? YES
    (old characters are still usable, but you need a new one to get the new "quest" to work)
    In 2014, one of the most unforgiving mods was born. By the hand of modder antonsenlarsen, Survivalist Mod destroyed nearly 3000 players with its difficulty.
    Saddly, in 2015, the great modder was driven mad, and this mod was left to rot, until Durlock picked it up once more, only for Starbound to transform into 1.0 and leave the beta phase. Many have tried to revive the Survivalist Mod for 1.0 but to no avail, until...


    What is CN Survivalist Mod: Resurrection??
    This mod gives a new challenging experience to Starbound. Forget the childish aspects, the boring features and the easy way out, CN Survivalist will try to kill you! WILL YOU SURVIVE, ONCE MORE?
    This mod improves the initial experience of Starbound, by making it harder to survive and slower to get to space.

    -Different tiers and slower initial progression
    -New monsters and biomes with new sfx!
    -Unforgiving weather
    -Monster aggression turned up
    -New weapons and crafting systems
    -New crafting stations
    -More exciting music
    -The addition of dDefinder’s Blood Mod
    -New equipment to replace Techs
    -Fuel has to be crafted
    -New farmables
    -New clothing
    -Newcurrency, Survival Points
    -Less HP for you, more HP for monsters
    -Increased gravity
    -Increase in breath depletion rate
    -Change to the interface
    - Start off on a hostile planet with only your busted ship and some ship debris to your name.
    -New Codex entry (Tips and mechanics)
    -New drops
    -New Starting planet
    -Better sapling sprites
    -And much more!



    This mod changes almost every asset in Starbound but it's unlikely it will have a negative effect when paired with other mods (especially ones loaded before it), but you never know. Combine at you own risk! --Note from ColonolNutty: It is compatible with Frackin' Universe now




    1. Back up all your Starbound/storage/player and Starbound/storage/universe files, this is a mod and like all mods, it isn't completely bug proof.
    2. Download the mod (or use GitBash to pull it down), extract the folder and paste it in ...\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\mods.
    3. SURVIVE


    Improvements from the reboot:
    • I've created a repository, definitely check here because it's where all the files live now: https://github.com/ColonolNutty/CNSurvivalist
    • I've converted alot of the files to .patch files which makes it a whole lot simpler to keep up to date and makes it way more compatible with other mods
    • The survival quest flows better
    • Updated crafting progression
    • And many more!
    • I'll always need testers, because doing it alone takes alot longer.
    • It would help tons if as a community you pitched in and helped a modder out.When you guys find bugs/exceptions/errors or other such things, let me know in the discussion tab or send me a PM.
    Feedback and suggestions:
    • If you have any feedback or suggestions (or bug reports) please feel free to log an Issue on the github repository or write a comment in the discussion tab
    Credits from the original:

    All credit for the creation of the original SurvivalistMod goes to antonsenlarsen and his original helpers (which I didn't have access to). Almost every asset was inspired on the original mod one, but had to be done from scratch due to the various patches since then.

    If anyone wants to modify CN Survivalist Mod, you'll need explicit permissions from me.
    Anyone out there can offer some improvements they'd like to see

    Credits to the original mod and the first reboot of the mod:
    • antonsenlarsen
    • Durlock

    Shout-out to Wilkenfeld, whose amazing graphic skills helped make some cool visual effects!

    Great mod, it's just what the game lacked - hardcore.
    Many thanks for compatibility with FU. And for downloading from the Github, it's easier to update.
