Flash Mod 1.0

Tap into the Speed Force to move faster than light!

  1. redfoxdev
    Flash Mod for Starbound!

    This mod does what you think it does: it grants you powers to move as fast as DC Universe Speedsters such as Flash or Reverse Flash.

    How to install it
    Download the mod from the link. You will get a .pak file that you will need to place into your ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\mods directory.

    How to get the ability
    Buy the Old Ring from Infinity Express and activate it. This will equip the new tech for you and also save this tech for the subsequent use that you can switch out in the outpost.


    How to use it
    Press F to tap into the Speed Force. Your hero will start moving across the outline of the terrain at the super-speed in the direction you are facing.

    What will be coming next
    • Different lightning colors / sounds
    • Flash Time (freeze time effect) for some strategic speedster planning!
    • Deal kinematic damage when running into enemies
    • Better algorithm for movement

    Existing issues
    • Currently the direction the hero will be moving in is not always the direction they will be directly facing. This is because the hero is following the outline into the proposed direction and not necessarily smaller terrain at hand.
    • In certain places like caves or little holes the hero might get stuck. This is because the algorithm for following the outline is far from ideal and will be the subject for refinement.
    • The hero won't traverse the same terrain in the same way each time. Each time the hero will get stuck, it will try to cleverly resolve itself and pull out of the stuck terrain in some direction. That is why you might see the hero sometimes running few circles around same block or etc. (which feels pretty cool tho!)

    If you feel like you want to help out project: whether you want to design some SFX for it, add art (like Flash suit, for example) or enhance current version with some fancy VFX (like lightning particles), please don't hesitate to contact me and offer your help. One person can do much but far from what a team can.

    Bug report
    Please let me know about any issues you encounter. Feel free to PM me.

    • SFX are initially from CW show "Flash" and were made available by The Blast in their "Ultimate Flash Sound Effects Pack".
