Colourful Boats 1.1 (CG)

Who doesn't want to sail on eye candy?

    Colourful Boats

    The Saints rule everywhere, even on Malkut Delta III after Earths destruction.

    What Does This Mod Do?

    This mod adds six new boats to the Shipyard Captain, based on the lovely original mod by this forums very own Beatrice. There are six boats - the Sail of Pride & Prey (Blue Lion boat), the Saints boat, the Laurel of Glory (Red Laurel boat), the Cross of Jerusalem (Yellow Cross boat), the Glitch boat, and the King of Red Lions boat. The King of Red Lions and Glitch boats are new additions at the request of reddit user toby109tt (who made his request on /r/Starbound oh so long ago) and Shadox2.0/Dr.Shadox from PlayStarbound and on the Steam Workshop. I have been sitting on these boats for a long time and, with a surge of inspiration that came along with the release of Starbound 1.0, I finished them up for official release.

    Sailing in Style

    To obtain your boat, you must have unlocked the Outpost and repaired your ship so that the Shipyard Captain, Penguin Pete, is willing to sell you some of his "legitimately acquired merchandise". He's willing to part with their Boat Controllers for 25000 pixels each - but with this much style, you won't suffer from buyers remorse anytime soon.

    Installing, Reporting Issues and Suggestions
    Steam Workshop Version

    Humans are not perfect. We can overlook many things. That is why this section is necessary,

    Installing Colourful Boats:

    1. Navigate to your \Starbound\mods\ folder, usually found within \Steam\steamapps\common\
    2. Unpack the "Colourful Boats - CG - 1.1" mod folder (or similar) from the downloaded ZIP file into your mods folder, such that the _metadata file within is located at \Starbound\mods\Colourful Boats - CG - 1.1\_metadata. If it is anywhere else, you did not install the mod correctly.
    3. Play Starbound.

    Reporting Issues:

    Always post your issues IN THE DISCUSSION THREAD. I am very attentive, and I will always respond to an issue posted in the Discussion thread.

    Regarding game crashing: Error pop-ups tell modders nothing about how to solve any issue you may come across. A basic guide to reporting errors is here. I WILL need to see your log file before I can help you. Capisce?

    Other issues: If your issue is not crash-related, but something more along the lines of "this can't be crafted" or "I get Perfectly Generic Items from harvesting this", I may need to see your log file as well - but it's more important that you post in the Discussion thread on the matter.


    Please leave suggestions in the related Discussion thread. I will respond to them with my thoughts there - however, suggestions are also valid if included within a mod review.
