    Hello, and welcome to "Shiny Pets"!

    This mod adds a separate color scheme to most unique monsters, such as the Snaunt and Poptop, to give them a less common appearance at times. Much like the Pokemon series, these alternate colors don't do anything other than look pretty or ugly, depending on your perspective. While Pokemon only has a 1/8000~ chance at finding a shiny, most monsters in Starbound have a 1/2 chance (only because I'm not sure how to make the colors rare)! Just as randomly generated monsters pick between color schemes, the Unique monsters will pick a random skin to spawn with. They will not have any perks, bonus skills, or anything else. Some have inverted colors, some have wild colors, some look dark and some look light, and a few are pale. Some have small differences, others have drastic differences.

    you could make completely new monsters and make them spawn rarely.
