    Hey there!
    I appeal first of all to the creators of mods and people who know how to work with game files.
    I had an idea how to change the color of the Novakid ship, but I do not know how to work with game files (pack/unpack, etc.)
    In the steam workshop, I found only one mod, which makes the whole ship of Novakid the same color (green), but I need grey Novakid ship...

    In the game folder and the Starbound wiki, I found the textures of the ship and changed their color to the one I want. Most likely these are not all files, because they do not provide for animation.
    Here are the files:

    Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_1.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_2.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_3.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_4.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_5.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_6.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_7.png Novakid_Ship_Upgrade_8.png novakidcaptainschair.png novakidfuelhatch.png novakidshipdoor.png novakidshipdoorBroken.png novakidshiphatch.png novakidshiplocker.png novakidshiplockerTier0.png novakidstoragelocker.png novakidtechstation.png novakidtechstationTier0.png novakidteleporter.png novakidteleporterTier0.png

    If you can make a mod based on these textures - I will be very grateful to you!
    If you need my help in working with the graphic editor (Pait.NET), I'm also ready to help you.

    Thank you for attention. I hope that this thread will receive a response.

    So basically you want a mod that replaces the default textures with yours, am i right?

    Yes, in the description I mentioned the mod, which makes the ship completely green ( ). I want something similar, but in a different color. As in the illustrations under the spoiler.
    I know that only I will see such a mod, and it is unlikely to work on the server, but that's enough for me.

    Dusk_Cobalt Yeah, You!

    Okay, so, I honestly have not too good of an idea what I'm doing, but as I type this I'm unpacking and looking through an Alternate Ship mod (for the Avali, if you were wondering) and I'll see if I can patch something together.

    Edit; After an hour and a half or so I got the Human ship to replace the Novakid's ship, but right now I'm still wrapping my head around the custom textures instead of the base game assets.

    Good. If you succeed - you can immediately add a mod in the steam workshop and/or in mods section this site, and leave a link here.
    The authorship will be yours, naturally)

    I don't know if im stupid or so but i cant seem to download the textures of the objects you've made.

    Dusk_Cobalt Yeah, You!

    M'kay, sorry 'bout the silence on my end, <insert excuse here>.
    Also just quickly regarding the other non-ship textures you made, that's just a single frame instead of the full animation cycle that you've recolored. (But don't worry I got this.)
    You'd want to edit that, not just a single frame.
    Also, status update, I just need to recolor the ship objects and then I should be good.

    Did you already do the ship recoloring? If not, you could use the one i made.
  11. Dusk_Cobalt

    Dusk_Cobalt Yeah, You!

    Nah, you can open the images in a new tab and save them from there if it doesn't work normally. (Though I did have to move around the T1-3 Ships due to get them in the right position.)
  12. Dusk_Cobalt

    Dusk_Cobalt Yeah, You!

    Actually wait, did you do the lit versions of the ships? (The ones with like 50% opacity or something I dunno)
  13. Dusk_Cobalt

    Dusk_Cobalt Yeah, You!

    So, uh, I got it to work.

    Guys, the exterior looks great!
    I hope that the elements of the interior will also be able to change the texture.

    Now when I installed the mod - I see that I was mistaken - Everything looks great!)

    If I understand correctly, the color of the on-board computer depends on the color of the character's core (it can be seen by teleportation) Novakid is pink by default.
    This can be changed only by other mod?
