    Wow! Yes!
    You, Sir, have just won an internet.

    I have just been browsing through it, but still there are a few things you might consider.

    page 21 currently:

    Unless of course that intension in the first place

    which looks like you should have been asleep and resting instead of doing community service :).

    My proposal:

    Unless, of course, that was your intention in the first place.

    The other one, on page 20, is somewhat ephemeral:

    Though to be clear since we are making a custom object it is not necessary to place it in the object
    folder. Since it is a custom object you can follow any folder directory structure you wish, maintaining
    parallel directory structure is only important when modifying vanilla files. I am simply doing it this way
    for sake of good practice to follow for beginner users.

    Which I'd like to see changed to a strong recommendation in favor of parallel directory structures, maybe with the keyword "bugfixing" thrown in for good measure - after all the community will have an easier time assisting if everybody followed the same structure.
    As your book is addressed at beginners (like me), I would not mind a little more incentive for using good practice than just stating the fact that it is such, but maybe I am overly careful there.

    Regards

    I would've also suggested paint.net as a tool for pixel editing, it's one of the oldest pixel editing programs I know of and is pretty descent. I made my icon, weapons, and armour in it.

    Thanks - I fixed the typo's for the next update.

    Ya i will try to focus more on "Good practices"- but I don't want it to come off too much as a hard and fast rule either. Since many tiny projects I do don't follow it.

    Not a huge fan of Paint.net when it comes to pixel art - but I will add it. Thanks.

    @ good practice:

    Yes, there are the Scylla of rearing a generation of sloppy modders and the Charybdis of putting too many off by thumping them with "the book". Personally I am more afraid of the first case, but that is me.
    As a compromise maybe something about coding style and maintenance-friendliness could go in the preface.

    The aseprite editor is not free (anymore?), btw. The download costs $15.-


    another one: page 14, testing the *.patch file.
    When I tried it I would need a number in the console command,
    like:
    /spawnitem diamond 1. Without the number simply nothing would happen.
    Maybe flashlight is a special case and doesn't need the number (I did not test that), but diamonds sure do.

    Thanks made the corrections.
    Asperite is free - but only the older versions now.

    I didn't notice they changed it when they hit 1.0.
    Oh well I will remove it from the list.

    Check your starbound.log - that is always the best way to find out what is causing the issue.
    Also please don't take screen shots - copy the actual code with [code] [/code] tags.

    It is much easier to work with then images.
    Finally there is a working example at the end of the tutorial - to compare with.

    You need to give the full log - not the part you believe is important.

    Code:
    Caused by: (JsonParsingException) Error parsing json: bad string, should be '"' at 13:35
    That is the actual error.
    Line 13, Space 35.

    You added something extra, find it and remove it.
    Always read the Entire Log is the lesson.

    The guide is great, however i could use one tip for lua. I want to patch a vanilla lua script, but only edit 1 function. There's 2 in the file and i'd like the other to remain untouched. If i just add .patch at end of lua filename and include just that 1 replaced function it would work? I get the feeling that .patch only conserns json.

    If i replace a texture, will it also be .png.patch?

    Patch is only for JSON files.
    To replace Images and Lua - your only option is to replace the file completely.

    But thanks for asking the question, I forgot to make that point in the book.

    Oh and a typo maybe? On page 12 it says _metdata or .metdata. When i uploaded my first mod to workshop it generated _metadata. So i can safely delete the _metdata i assume...

    Mod uploader tool is started from Steam btw.

    Do you mind if I put a link to this page on my playstarbound and Steam workshop mod pages.

    On page 22 you seem to have placed the sentence about the custom race scan parameter in the section about the Orientation parameter.

    A correct version appears several pages later, on page 26.
