    This. Despite me still having the giraffe beta and koala beta, this mod here is an absolute lifesaver for others who don't have the original betas. Not to mention the fact that it actually features the beta content instead of a half-assed outdated legacy features mod. The biggest factor of why this mod is amazing is the fact that it is literally just starbound beta with the current starbound stuff, so I can literally use Starbound Beta's overpowered techs while building a proper big ass colony (something that sucked in old starbound beta until they revamped it to a much better system that it is today) An underrated work of passion from a true starbound fan.

    Starbound beta versions had a lot off cool stuff. Having a selection of it back with improvements is great.

    What a great mod! It is the best thing in reviving beta items and mechanics, it changed my gaming experience quite a bit.

    PS I could add the Jelly Boss in a future update

      aww! thank you :D

      I'd accept your offer, but everything thus far has been me alone, and I've already gotten the Jelly working :3 I just gotta polish it, change some recipes, finish the minions and their attacks, and we're done with that!
