Magic Labels 1.1

Displays container labels when highlighting interactable objects (ALT-key)

  1. v6ooo
    This is a server-side mod. If you play on a multiplayer server, you do not need to install this.
    It does not interfere with other mods that modify containers such as Improved Containers or Enhanced Storage.

    When playing with mods, be sure to keep current backups of your storage folder that contains character, ship & universe. Also learn how to use the 3 player/shipworld backups that Starbound automatically generates.

    Do not add any dependency to or on this mod. It needs to operate without restrictions.
    Please contact me if you want me to add features or support other mods.

    With the help of ninja penguins we've successfully added labels to containers when highlighting interactable objects. (ALT-key on Windows)

    Labels only show up on containers that have custom names. So you will need to have mod that lets you rename containers, Improved Containers or Enhanced Storage work very well.

    Supported mods
    Avali, Felins, Frackin' Universe, Gardenbot2, Munari, MadTulips Spaceship Mod, Pixel
    Goods Store, The Viera Race of Ivalice

    Known issues
    When coming into view, the label (NPC name) will display for a second before fading away.
    Proximity sensors will detect labels (NPC)

    Download and move pak file into Starbound/mods/ folder.

    When updating it is recommend that you remove the previous version.

    This is absolutely great. Finally a way to know which chest is which at a glance. I think I actually asked around for this kind of mod a while back, so thanks!
