I'm a sci-fi nerd and I found a the lack of a fully Gibsonian cyberpunk-themed race in Starbound disappointing. So I filled the niche myself.
The Kirhos are an alien species dissimilar from any Earth fauna. I call them "goblins" or "rodents" for personal ease. Hundreds of years ago, they exhausted all resources on their home planet and fled to the stars. Nowadays, most kirhos live in privately-owned cities with synthesized environments referred to as arcologies-- or "arcs" among the hip. Kirhosi player characters are young, tech-savvy rebels without a cause who hijack a prototype spaceship so they can forge a new life among the stars.
As mentioned above, the race draws heavy inspiration from the cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction, especially works such as Shadowrun, Akira, The Matrix, System Shock, and William Gibson's short stories. Have you ever thought Starbound would be better if everyone used arbitrary future slang and wore outrageous clothing that should have gone out of style years ago? You've come to the right place! Just want to play a colorful furry creature with adorably oversized ears? This mod hopefully covers that too.

If you're interested, you can read more about their development plans and statuses here!
First, make sure you have a program that can unarchive .7z files. I recommend 7Zip, but WinRAR works as well.
You'll also need a character creation extension mod. If you don't have one, I recommend the Simple Extended Character Creation Mod.
Beyond that, download the .7z file, unpack it, and place the .modpak folder in Starbound/giraffe_storage/mods.
In addition to here, I can also be reached on my tumblr. You can also find screenshots and development updates there.
