    The healing drones are a little over powered, as we needed to Nerf them a bit on our severs; but other wise these are a great add to anyone's mod list! I wouldn't mind seeing more styles of them in the future too!

    I like it, but It really bothers me, that the animation only runs when you walk.. wouldnt be too bad with a other animation, but this animation really requires the "particles" to fly around and when you stand still it looks kinda dumb when the drone just freezes :-/

      Yeah, unfortunately, due to the limatations of the engine, idle animations are not possible on backitems (correct me if i'm wrong :P). If this were possible, I would definitely add it, though!

    The Mod does exactly what it states it does and i have found that works really well to replace several items i would have to carry around (heals, light source) and it frees up several spaces in my inventory or equipment bar. I just carry both types and a major heal item and my weapons and thats it.

    I especially like the idea that it can be crafted with starting mats in the beginning once the player gets a iron crafting table. The mats can be found very easy in the starting system(s).

      Make sure your version isn't the light edition, look in the crafting table, iron crafting table, or robotic crafting table, it should be in one of those. If you cannot find it, spawn it in with /spawnitem droneworkshop. Use /admin first to gain admin powers, or try a different version of the mod, and also make sure it's actually installed. That's about all of the troubleshooting steps I can think of.

    Great mod, a mandatory part of my Starbound experience. Hopefully CF allows backpack items to be animated so we can make them animated ^_^

    I'm going to throw out 5 stars because this mod has always been a mandatory part of my Starbound. I am super grateful for the mod. I do feel some of the healing is a bit overpowered and as previous comments suggest- I shall PM you with my thoughts on this. Thanks for your hard work and a great mod! Highly recommended!

      Author's Response
      Yeah... I kind of just realized how overpowered the medical drones are... i'm just wondering if I should increase crafting costs, or reduce healing ability.

    Seriously a wonderful mod, especially with how the Lantern Stick got nerfed to such a pathetic degree. The top tier lightdrone seriously makes mining so much more fun, as now I don't have to place torches every few steps just to see where I'm mining.

    I know you're not quite finished updating the Medical Drones to the top tier, but I gotta ask, will there be possibly more drone types added in the future? I could see a lot of variety of drones; mining drones that help you dig faster, battle drones that help you damage enemies, energy drones which helps recover energy quicker or makes energy attacks take less energy per upgrade. Calming drones which makes aggressive enemies not attack you on sight, which would make it a lot easier to gather stuff for the 3D printer if an area is giving you trouble. Crafting/Smithing drones, which helps give you portable access to different forms of crafting while you're one the move! There's a lot of possibilities to go with, and it would be interesting to see them explored.

    Of course though, I understand if you don't want to go much farther than just giving extra light. It does that excellently enough, without it being too overpowering of a radius. Plus I'd definitely understand if you simply don't have the time to add so many different drone types.

    In any case, really great mod, really makes mining more enjoyable!

      I actually am adding more drones in the next update, whenever that happens. Specifically a two or three-tiered attack drone, and maybe a three-tiered energy regent drone, along with some potential crafting changes.

      Ty only issue with some of the drones you suggested is that, I'm not entirely sure starbound's engine supports stuff like that. IIRC, its impossible to make an item a right-click crafting table, and I'm not sure how an arm or would allow you to craft things. The creature-pacifier idea sounds interesting, but, like I said before, not entirely sure if that is even possible.

      But other than that, the other ideas sound great!

    Good job, I can also see you got a spriter lol, people like that are hard to find. Anyways I like the mod there is real potential. Do your best and never give up. Good work to your sprite artist too. :)

    really good mod with both the light drone and the medical drone. the only thing i would like to see is the medical drone being able to get at least one upgraded version that produces more light.

    Its really cool, also I could probally help with some of the spriting
    1. JellyBlade
      Author's Response
      Really? That'd be sweet. I am really bad at spriting, and I have a new update basically ready, I just need to do the sprites and it'll be finished, and having another person who is probably way better than me at sprites would be awesome.
