Survivalist Mod 2.13

WILL YOU SURVIVE?

  1. Durlock
    Survivalist Mod Version 2.13
    Needs New Character? YES
    (old characters are still usable, but you need a new one to get the new ship)






    Introduction: In 2014, one of the most unforgiving mods was born. By the hand of modder antonsenlarsen, Survivalist Mod destroyed nearly 3000 players with its difficulty.
    Saddly, in 2015, the childish features that made Starbound what it is today drove the graet modder mad, and this mod was left to rot. Many have tried to revive Survivalist but to no avail, until…..

    What is Survivalist Mod??

    IMPORTANT:

    This mod changes almost every asset in Starbound and it's likely it won't work well with other mods. Combine at you own risk!

    Almost every dungeon in-game has been removed. If you find one, it's prolly becaue I messed up.

    IF CREATING A NEW CHARACTER IN A NEW UNIVERSE, WAIT A COUPLE OF SECONDS FOR IT TO RANDOMLY GENERATE. IN THAT TIME, AI CONSOLE WON'T BE ACCESIBLE. IT'S NOT A BUG!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    Instructions:
    1. Remove all mods from the mod forlder.
    2. Back up all your Vanilla/Other mods player, universe files.
    3. Download the mod, extract the folder and paste it in ...\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\giraffe_storage\mods.
    4. SURVIVE


    FINAL COMMENT:

    All credit for the creation of the original SurvialistMod goes to antonsenlarsen and his original helpers (which I didn't have access to). Almost every asset was inspired on the original mod one, but had to be done from scratch due to the various patches since then.

    If anyone wants to modify Survivalist 2.0, I only ask to give credit to the original modder and me.

    IF YOU ARE A MODDER AND CAN MOD DUNGEONS (or anything else), AND IF YOU WISH TO BE PART OF ONE OF THE BEST MODS IN STARBOUND, PM ME!

    Shout-out to Wilkenfeld, whose amazing graphic skills helped me make some cool visual effects!

    This is a great mod, for everyone who loves a challenge. It makes survival much harder and gives a bit of a DayZ feeling to STARBOUND.

    I'm so happy to see this mod back! Thanks a lot! I've test it until i got the first sniper and so far it work well. :)

    I do feel like it is easier than it was in 2014... i thought that the monsters were way more stronger and the "rare" drop were harder to get back then.


    Is the alien from the exploding meteor still a thing? i've got a score to settle with them.... ;)

      SM 1 used a custom LUA for the behavior of monsters that made them different from vanilla. Sadly, I'm not a good a programmer as he was, but I'm working on it :)

      As for the meteor monsters, they are in SM, although not implemented. I really wanted to add 'invasion weather' but just wasn't able to make it work :(
      The monsters do work, but I wanted the weather and it peased me off that I wasn't able to do it.
      FrackinUniverse did implemented (not the weather, just the monster)

    As an avid Better Than Wolves/Minecraft player I'm always looking for a good challenge in other games. Starbound became quite easy a while after its initial release, and I hoped a mod would fix it someday.

    This mod provides an interesting challenge (if a little unfair) in the early game, but then quickly dissolves into an unbalanced mess with lots of surplus items and grinding for others. It throws away many mechanics of the original game but doesn't provide much on its own yet.

    That said, the mod is a move in the right direction and I had fun playing it mostly until the repair of the FTL chip.

      That's odd. Try some of this solutions:

      - clear your mod folder before placing Survivalist (that's Starbound/giraffe_storage/mods/*here goes SurvivalistMod folder you downloaded* )
      - back up or delete your previous characters and worlds (that's Starbound/giraffe_storage/player and Starbound/giraffe_storage/universe)

      If any of this solutions work for you, PM me your log file (that's Starbound/giraffe_storage/log.txt) right after the game crashes.
