    Skittles Advanced Template Mod
    (Not to be used to make other template mods)
    Works best with a character selection extender such as:


    Do you want to create your own race mod, but you don't know where to start? This is the mod for you! AND ITS NOW EVEN EASIER.

    If you need a guide to follow try this: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1380289410


    How to use:
    To turn the ADVANCED_RACE_TEMPLATE_EASY_SETUP.txt into a bat file open it up in your word editor, go Save As, then Save As Type, change that to All Files. Then change the name to ADVANCED_RACE_TEMPLATE_EASY_SETUP.bat

    Run the batch file ADVANCED_RACE_TEMPLATE_EASY_SETUP.bat. Pick a name for your race USING ONLY LOWERCASE and NO SPACES, press enter and BAMN. That's all there is to it.

    A more step by step instruction

    Starting with a fresh template:

    Unzip the file and put it into your mods folder.

    Run the .bat file and choose a name longer than 3 characters, lowercase only, no spaces. (note .bat files are for windows only)

    Open starbound and you should see a pale bald human with the female wearing green in your list.

    If you do, then hoorah! you can now begin editing, if not, check your log file at starbound/storage. You can open it up in notepad++

    If you aren't running windows then you will either need a program or to manually change all instances of skadvtest to your chosen race name.

    Known issues from bat:
    Check dialog files to make sure they have been renamed by the bat file.

    All Tier armours - various races
    Custom ship pet - Fennix
    Penguin Merchant (craft at inventors table)
    A simple particle effect.
    Hat with the effect added to it. (purchase at merchant)
    Race Spawner (purchase at merchant)
    Blank banners (purchase at merchant)
    Basic furniture with your race's colony tag (purchase at merchant)

    Also includes what's in the basic version which is:
    Respawn Cinematic
    Hair and Body parts
    Basic Sword
    Ship and Ship assets
    Sfx Hurt sounds
    Shiplocker Treasure Pool

    Completely compatible with the basic version.

    This is the advanced version. For something simpler, try https://community.playstarbound.com/resources/template-race-mod.956/

    Don't forget to change the .metadata.

    For free graphic templates:

    Notepad ++ - Great Tool. I cannot recommend it enough.

    A BIG thank you to my friend Severenger, who made the .bat file.

    If you have any suggestions, comments or critiques I would love to hear from you.

    If you have any problems look into your log file at Starbound\storage\starbound.log and if you're still stuck, paste me the error in the discussion. I am happy to help!

    One of the main reasons I love Starbound is the lore and themes of the races, and this makes it so easy to make your own, seriously thank you so much.
