Skittles Template Race Mod 3.0.4

Do you want to create your own race mod, but you don't know where to start? This is the mod for you!

    Skittles Basic 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 BASIC_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 BASIC_RACE_TEMPLATE_EASY_SETUP.bat

    Run the batch file BASIC_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.

    Do not use this .bat file with previous versions, as I have adjusted some file names to make things easier. Always back up your mod folder!

    If you have having issues with your race armour not finding default frames file. Redo your \species\sktest.species file with the current template.

    Respawn Cinematic
    Hair and Body parts
    Basic Sword
    Ship and Ship assets
    Sfx Hurt sounds
    Shiplocker Treasure Pool

    All assets are from the basic human race.

    This is the basic version, for armour and more try https://community.playstarbound.com/resources/skittles-advanced-template-race-mod.5099/

    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!

    extremely helpful, I already knew it was gonna be good when it was by you (since you make some of the best races) and it is. i use this for tiny races I make here and there, and I'm preparing to make a big one soon (which I might have to switch to advanced for but idk)

    Great, I think I can use it to do something very interesting. If you agree…

    This is honestly amazing, I was starting to work on my own race before I found this, and I found myself copying and pasting assets from the base game anyway, except I had to rename them in their corresponding .PATCH and .CINEMATIC files. This makes everything 1000x times easier. Thanks

    Perfect, wanted to make a race mod two years ago but at the time was a little harder and the help I found then was edit someone elses race mod (like that would be easy).

    I love this and it looks like itll be fine. But I'm stupid and I don't see the species on the create screen. It's in the mods folder and I didn't even edit anything yet and ran the .bat file. Any help please?

      It's easier to discuss this in the discussion section :P. Check that your recipes have been renamed, the .bat file seems to miss that. Also check your starbound log file for more information.

    Character's Images do not show on creation screen. I'm thinking it has something to do with using a capital letter. I could be wrong though.
