Neki 0.94

Playful, pesky and borderline obnoxious.

  1. HyperJuni
    This species may be NSFW by some definitions.
    The screenshots were taken with the NekiSFW patch installed.

    • A Character Extender such as 18+ or any other; Not required with FU.
    • NekiSFW - makes the Neki SFW-er than they are by default
    • NekiSit - fixes the sleeves but makes everyone sit like a Neki
    • NekiNoSit - gives the Neki the vanilla-style sitting pose back
    • NekiFloof - gives the Neki extremely floofy, fox-like tails
    • NekiPoses - 3 new idle poses (applies to ALL species!)
    • NekiCrew - allows up to 99 crew on T3-T8 ships
    • NekiShades - removes the Nightvision ability
    Please refer to the included readme file for more detail.

    The Neki (pronounced "neh-kee") is a mod about what it would be like for a such a species to exist within Starbound's universe. The way other species treat them varies from borderline fanatic to extremely unpleasant, yet the Neki themselves see the world around them and its inhabitants in an innocent, wondrous and purely pragmatic way; they see things for what they are without prejudice. The world is their playground and their dining hall.

    If you're interested in learning more, it is highly recommended to play the Intro mission, converse with NPCs more than once, read the scan descriptions and look for their Codexes.

    Opinions vary, but it is most widely believed that the Neki were the brainchild of a renowned and eccentric, if somewhat deranged, entrepreneur of old. Their virtually limitless resources allowed for an extensive research programme which employed the brightest scientific minds of a generation and went on well beyond their own lifetime; its findings, however, remained largely unpublished. The project would later be abruptly overtaken by the U.S.C.M, vanishing from the public eye practically overnight - with evidence of corporate espionage by the Miniknog, with regards to the data, surfacing not long after.

    A while later, the Neki would start appearing on Earth, their existence invoking a wide range of reactions - from outright repugnance to passionate attraction. Despite appearances, they have proven themselves to be remarkably sapient, crafty and more resourceful than many of their human counterparts - which earned them a great deal of resentment by many.

    The Neki have a playful and often pesky demeanor, always looking for stuff to eat, places to sleep and things to play with. They stand out among humans for having large ears, powerful (and sometimes fluffy) tails, fur in a variety of colors covering their bodies and a lush mane that stretches from their heads down to their tails.

    You are one of the Neki.
    How you ended up at the Terrene Protectorate academy, is anyone's guess.

      Thank you!

      I've found what may have been causing the crash - the .species file was missing from the download for some reason. I've added it back and re-uploaded the mod, please download it again.

    I love every part of the uniqueness of this mod, down to the full-body leg slot and arms in chest slot. It's different without being over-the-top quirky.

    Would it be possible to see support for the Tier 9/10 Ships mod included? The designs in that mod tend to be not terribly creative in expansion so much as a bit of copy/pasting and adjusting to make it seamless, but I lack the technical skill to actually understand how the mod works to get it to pull the newer ships rather than simply pretending it's a Class VI ship while using the Class V body - I had tried relentlessly, even using another T9 modded race extension as a reference point and still failing - for Everis race previously or I'd attempt to to it myself again here.

      Thank you so much! ♥
      I've tried the mod you mentioned, but it seems horribly outdated and doesn't seem to work at all for me even with vanilla races, so I can't test it :(

    Love the custom scanner commentary, and the lore is top-notch. (I think I've found all of the codexes there are so far.)
