ItA - Enter the Dragon Temple 1.22

Adds Hylotl Themed Shrine & Cultural Objects

  1. Elfginther
    Now on Steam Workshop
    ITA-Dragon Temple

    Flavor / Introduction:
    Having been forced to flee their homeworld by the Floran menace, the Hylotl are as well known for their craftsmanship as they are for their pacifism throughout the galaxies.

    Traditional handicrafts are almost venerated in Hylotl society, and even the most novice of Peace Missionaries can craft beautiful yet functional works of art. Fables, passed down through the generations, tell of a great water serpent. Whom bequeathed upon the Hylotl much of their knowledge, love of beauty & early technology, starting them on their journey beneath the waves and into the stars.

    Remnants and artifacts of these ancient shrines dedicated to the water serpent can be found throughout the galaxy, hinting at the Hylotl's long lost past. However, the serpent's influence can be felt in the intricate items Hylotl use in their every-day lives the most.

    Getting Started:

    Just fabricate a Calligraphy Brush using some simple timber and five plant fibres. Once you have the brush in hand, feel your creativity flow and be inspired.

    Want to get down to building right away? Craft the Scroll of the Water Serpent and unlock the secrets to traditional Hylotl building materials! These may be needed for many of the recipes included in this mod.


    Or use The Tabula Rasa found here!

    Recipes have been added for all items, making them craftable via the normal furniture, farm & anvil crafting interfaces.

    Mod Content:

    This started as a small project to bring some custom items in game that I wanted to potentially use in my ultimate hylotl village. Most of the pixelwork is custom and makes an attempt to match the style & colors already in game.

    Most of the items have recipes that can be accessed via the normal crafting tables, 3D Printer or admin commands. The majority of items are listed below:

    Are you a cultured swine?
    Do you like those pesky fish aliens and cultural appropriation?
    Then this mod is for you!
    Jokes aside, this mod is a solid 5/5 stars, definitely recommend it if you like Japanese style furniture.
    Had this in my collection before I made this account, I'm glad to see this one's still updating.

      I added the hylotacinth per your previous request for more plants. It is a platform item without need for an anchor, so it can appear floating in a pond or even suspended in mid-air.

    Really darn fantastic Objects. Great to spice up any housing or villages. Even has working recipes now (with Tabula Rasa).

      Pohanny has done some amazing work on their HylotlStuff mod, we started developing these around the same time a couple months ago. Not much overlap, and the aesthetic fits nicely when used together. Thanks for the review!

    Honestly, looking at the list: my mouth is just watering for Japanese aesthetic furniture; HOWEVER, understand that it's still being updated bit by bit - with many things in the screenshots and list seemingly missing at the moment as I've just tested and tried to search for them immediately.

    Though, this should not deter you from supporting the modder for making a wonderful return to Starbound v1.0!

      Thanks so much! I'll post some more later this evening. Doors are definitely broken.

      Try your pixel printer for everything but the anvil, just /admin and search using the hylotl tag.
