Being a loyal Pokemon fan, I am glad that there are people who make mods that add Pokemon into Starbound. Two of the best mods belong to Ochiru Yuki, the Lucario and Lopunny race mods. Very popular mods, with thousands of downloads. Of the two Pokemon, I vastly prefer Lopunny - and Ochiru's rendition of the bunny does not sit right with me.
So, I did something about it. Not to rag on Ochiru, but the faces he designed did not look like a Lopunny, so I changed them. Here's a comparison between the sprites:
Not shown: They also now have an animated, bouncy tail while walking and a full set of custom emotes!
I also made some changes to the character creation of the Lopunny - now, both ear and body fluff are selected by the same arrow. The other arrow now changes your characters eye colors. And I changed the bright red fluff option to a pink because I really did not enjoy the random bright red color being an option. I also added a good random name generator! No more repetition!
In addition, I fixed an issue with the original mod and sprited a custom Lopunny tech screen image:
Like all vanilla races, it changes colors as you unlock and equip nanosuit techs!
I also polished the Lopunny codices quite a bit. Give them a read,
Speaking of issues in the Lopunny mod, I also changed the recipes available to the Lopunny such that you can now craft tier 5 Human armors. Speaking of human armors, the Lopunny now have their own set of certain human helmets, to accomodate their large ears... as well as a Cowboy Hat.
And... that's it, more or less. There may be a few more things I want to change in the Lopunny race mod, but this is enough for now.
Also, if you are interested in having a larger, customized ship as a Lopunny, I recommend getting the Logistics Frigate Reborn - Custom Race Support mod! When it's updated!

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 doing 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.
