    Hey there.

    I've taken a quick look at this mod, and I think that it has promise to evolve further.

    I thank you for your work on making this mod but i have a small complaint. I would like for you to look over the math. Just hear me out. in the pictures it says that, 36.8 * 1.2 = 43.1 DPS. that is not true 36.8 * 1.2 = 44.16 DPS though you were close I'm wondering if something happened to make the math go off. same with the shotgun 26.8 * 1.5 = 40.4 is also not right. the correct answer is 40.2 which is most definitely a smaller difference and doesn't mean as much but I'm just pointing out that small flaw. I do really appreciate this mod though I needed the ability to quickly sort my weapons without having to whip out the calculator. I just want to give you some constructive criticism. Hope this helps and doesn't just sound really mean. keep up the good work and have a good day.

    Keep in mind that Starbound tries to make approximate estimates for its stats when displaying them for player use. What you see in a weapon's stats may be slightly higher or lower than they really are. In fact, the damage-per-second stat that Starbound displays is probably more accurate than if you tried to calculate it yourself using the the damage-per-shot and rate-of-fire stats that are displayed.

    Interesting. that's good to know actually thanks for the mod and hard work. sorry if i came off as rude. i just wanted to make sure it was as accurate as it could be. thanks again!

    Thank you a lot for your feedback, i really apreciate it.
    For the calculation problem, as shadow wolf said, all the values are estimates.
    I actually don't perform the calculation, i modified the interface so it would show the hidden stats of weapons (DPS, tier...) which the vanilla game doesn't display (why?).
    It still gives you a strong comparison basis.

    There's a bug where the description of the item overlaps with the DPS or Damage. I don't really know if it's just me. I'm using GG if that helps

    I can't seem to get this working on my Mac. Does it not work with version 1.1.1 ?

    It shows up in the Mods list but nothing on the weapons in game.

    How to get this working on 1.2? I can't do it without the Tier indication...

    Edit. After a couple of restarts it just started working all of a sudden. Nice.

    Cool! I'm going to try it now.
    btw, will it be at workshop?

    Edit: Nope, I don't know how to get it working.
    Is there something more to do apart from putting the mod in the ./giraffe_storage/mods/ folder?

    Is this broken
    using version Starbound 1.2.1 (steam)
    download the zip and put Cheerful Giraffe copy in \Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\mods ... doesn't work
    put it in \Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\giraffe_storage\mods .. doesn't work

    rename to BetterWeaponInfo.pak to match forum instructions, put it in \Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\mods ... Starbound crashes on load
