  1. madtulip
    Mod by HuggableCreep, MadTulip and TooManySecrets.

    Content (Rev. 608)(patch notes):
    - Build your ship block by block.
    - A lot of craftable decorative spaceship items like fins and thrusters for all races.
    - Craftable vanilla ship objects (Teleporter, Shiplocker ...)
    - ZERO gravity in space
    - Life support system which detects hull breaches.
    - "Modules in a box" Items which deploy into landing pods on the planets surface
    - Scanner to create your own modules in a box (compress a whole house into a single item) allowing all kinds of fun (i.e. land you spaceship!)
    - Tilesets for each race plus a glass tileset to counter the blockiness a bit.
    - Scoutships (WASD moveable, newtonian flight skimmers)
    - Mining Pod (WASD moveable, mines downwards,slow skimmer, SssSHakEs a Lo0T!)
    - Crew hanging around at work and rest places
    - Supports a growing list of modded races

    Human starter ship example:
    - Tilesets:
    The pic above shows one "human-tileset" blocktype and one "glass-tileset" blocktype automaticaly brought into shape by the "Tilesetter" object.

    ZERO gravity and Life Support System shown in a video by TooManySecrets.:

    ZERO gravity:
    In order to have no gravity when outside of your spaceship you need to equip the "Ship" tech we spawn in your initial shiplocker. It works by detecting if there are no blocks around you or if there are blocks around you in case you wonder.

    - Modules in a box:
    For instructions about this functionality please see Rev. 172 patch notes and theese 3 videos.:

    - Installation:
    Show Spoiler
    - download the zip file (button above this page).
    - extract its content to ....../Starbound/mods/
    - if the game crashed when you try to select a character you might have to backup your starbound/player/ folder (your savegames) and afterwards delete all files in starbounds/player/
    - 1) create a new character
    - 2) if you want to import an existing character (not guaranteed this will work)
    The player is saved in 3 files with the same name (long sting of numbers and letters) but different endings in starbound/player. We want to delete the .shipworld file so that starbound creates a new default one (out of this mod) when you reenter the game with an existing character.
    - pick up all items you want to keep on your old ship (we will delete the whole ship map and all its content)
    - backupt starbound/player/ directory
    - delete the .shipworld file in /starbound/player belonging to the character in question (it stores only your ship). To figure out which file triplet belongs to which character you can keep only one triplet at the time inside the folder and launch starbound to see which character name it belongs to)
    - if you log in with that character again the game will not find the characters .shipworld file and create a new default one based on this mod if the mod is installed
    - you will have to unlock all starmap upgrades again as recipes are read and marked as known for your player from the list in /starbound/assets/player.config AND mods/madtulip/player.config THE MOMENT YOU USE THE UPDATE. As the player.config file of the mod might have come after you did the unlock first you will have to do the unlock again by using another starmap upgrade.

    - warning: if things are saved in your /player files that reference items or objects in the game which cant not be found anymore (because the savegame was created using a mod and the mod was deleted or replaced by an update afterwards) the game might crash once you enter the main menue or once you select a character. In this case you eigther have to remove the broken savegames OR you have to reinstall the mod or dependencies so that those items and objects requested by the savegames can be found again.

    when i saw land your ship in starbound i was hinking that its just going to be a ship objects that i can decorate to look like my ship but when i saw the info i was staggered i am giving it a 5 the idea we all had but didnt think it was passable + most of us dont play the nightly and stick to modding the current game as it is but with no way to expand the ship the ship became dull and most got back to building on planets .. this however opend a new gate some thing the game developers needed to give us in the game... making our own ships the way we like based on smart tools and with out race's technology amazing i am downloading it and testing it as we speak... one thing i need to ask... dose it work with race mods ? most of us have a few more races added to there games and servers soo....

    First off please don't misunderstand: I actually think FCS is a great mod. That said, by comparison, MadTulip's Spaceship Mod is *epic*. Custom objects and tiles sets, new crafting, exterior accents, and sexier curves await your next ship building project if you roll with this. This mod, in some form or capacity, should be integrated into the stock game and the developers deserve to be on the payroll to continue expanding and maintaining it.

    I now actually look forward to the end of a good planet run to come home to my ship and take advantage of all it's clean functionality. Here's my latest endeavor as one on the list of happy builders: http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/25089932096209215/594FFB4E31B13D795E8C20F5776CD7F8DFB1EAF9/

    I ran out of stars so I can only give you a 5, good sirs.

    Love this mod it makes it so much worth while to not have to have a base on a planet and just make my ship this giant juggernaut (like you had in the video:D.) and I love the fact you have to get a decent amount in before you can start even developing the ship to keep it from being a bit easy to make your ship :D plus love the scoutships those are pretty cool.Keep up the good work kind Sir/Madam.
