Your Starbound Crew 4.98

Go on missions to collect a crew for your ship!

  1. Luminaesthesia
    CREATURE UPDATE!: Added the ability to capture critters with your bug net and see which critters you've collected with the creature capture station. Go try to get all 76!

    Be sure to check out my other mod: Starbound Side Stories which includes the old Unstable Stars from this mod, along with over another 150 quests to complete all over the universe!


    With the tenant update here, I thought it was time to go through and completely redo the mod. Welcome to Your Starbound Crew, a mod that introduces six new tenants designed for your ship. The mod begins as soon as you hit the outpost, and get a quest from one of the NPC humans there. He'll tell you about a distress signal he got leading to your first crew member...

    First mate Taylor Hart
    Your first mate will be the one to let you know about where the other crew members are located. Her primary goal is to help you explore the universe, and her tenant pool is centered around you upgrading your ship and your matter manipulator. She also has an upgradable back item called a KEI, that can eventually offer you benefits such as increased run speed, or lots of attack, and even no fall damage.

    Mr. Sora
    Mr. Sora is your Hylotl colonist specialist, and you find him in his colony experiment in an asteroid field. He'll offer you tenant deeds, sub biome building materials, and even recipes for furniture as his tenant rewards, and will even send you on a mission to recruit four Novakids to help build temporary bases on whatever tier you're on.

    This Glitch is a master farmer and cook, and will help make your farming life easier, along with offering unique recipes.

    Kananna Bonebane
    Kananna is your combat specialist, and offers some healing items, stims, and throwing weapons as his tenant gifts. He also offers his old family sword, which you can help upgrade into an amazing blade.

    Dr. Geny Petraft
    You'll find the Doctor messing with time travel in his jungle base. He offers tech chips, techs, and teleporter cores as his loot table, and sells an antidote to help you explore toxic planets.

    Moonfinder Maneca
    Maneca loves studying everything about the universe, especially ancient ruins. His loot pool includes lore from every race in the game, and also offers you the ability to restore an old matter manipulator into a glorious digging machine.

    As you can see, some stuff has changed, some stuff is gone, but a lot of it is for the better. As of now I'm choosing to just rewrite most of the quests, so that will probably hit for the second stable update. I'll also be adding a mid game mission for each crew member, and a late game mission for each crew member, so you can upgrade them. Anyways, sorry it's been so long since the mod has been updated, I hope you all enjoy!

    If you're upgrading from the old Your Starbound Crew, or wish to uninstall it, there's only one thing that can mess up your character: take off all techs added by the mod. If you don't, it can corrupt your character.


    1. Every mission has an object, usually either given by the crew member or in a chest very close to where the end point is.
    Human = Crew Map
    Floran = Floran console
    Hylotl = Hylotl console
    Avian = weird ancient thing I will be changing
    Apex = cool computer
    Glitch = farming tools.
    Penguin = gold crate (but where is the mission?!)

    2. Every quest for a mission will end up giving you a colony deed which you will also need.

    3. FIgure out or section out a room on your ship to use, as every tenant in the game requires a light and a door.

    4. Combine the crew object, door, and light into one room. And once that is set up, then you put the colony deed up (the colony deed needs to be last I believe)

    5. Now you have a crew!

    Hopefully you enjoy my first attempt at modding a game, it's been a game itself trying to sort through all of these files and LUA scripts. HUGE thanks to severedskullz for helping me figure things out, and for helping out other modders, and the same goes to xxswatelitesxx. Thanks to aMannus for helping me update the mod page. Please send any feed back, especially any bugs, issues, or any thoughts you have on balancing the mod. Thanks again for downloading, and a huge thanks to everyone at Chucklefish for making a great game to play and mod!

    I'm in love with this mod. I have been since I started playing Starbound a few years ago-- but I started a new character, got really far into it, then realised I couldn't progress... I do however love this mod very much and hope the JSON error and progression are fixed. Keep up the great work!

    As a fan of "getting the band back together" quests in various games, this great mod brings a much needed depth to exploring the galaxy with your own rag-tag crew of adventurers. Fantastic Work! : )

    I have used this mod for awhile, through several versions, and have consistently been impressed with it's scope, quality, and seamless integration into the larger Starbound universe. I'd even suggest making this a core component of the game, if Chucklefish would add it!

    I greatly look forward to being able to play this on Glad Giraffe - unfortunately, I didn't read the most recent comments about the mod before installing it, and have therefore made it impossible to uninstall or progress through on my most recent play file. May I suggest that you add a disclaimer at the top of the page indicating that this mod only functions well in the prior stable release, and also include some kind of repair function in the update you're inevitably planning to release for Glad Giraffe that repairs characters which have accidentally installed the currently available broken version? I'd hate to lose the progress I have.

    However it turns out, good job for making a quality mod, and I greatly anticipate future releases. :)
