Reno's API

A multiplayer-compatible modding API that works on both Glad Giraffe and the upcoming Starbound 1.0!

    Reno's API
    Reno's API is a modding API that allows you to use other players' custom items in multiplayer (and single-player) with little fuss.

    1. Drag and drop the .modpak file into your mods folder.
      In Glad Giraffe, this is located at Steam/steamapps/common/Starbound/giraffe_storage/mods.
      In Starbound 1.0, this is located at Steam/steamapps/common/Starbound/mods.
    2. Open starbound.config (this file is in the folder that contains your mods folder) and change the following line:
      "safeScripts": true,
      to this:
      "safeScripts": false,
    3. Enjoy!
    • For vanilla diehards: This mod does NOT interfere with the vanilla Starbound experience in any way.
    • This mod is highly recommended for anyone looking to play on large multiplayer servers. Otherwise, items you obtain on these servers will not work.
    • Having a Reno's API item without the mod will not crash you; it simply will not work like it should. (It's the same if you didn't follow the installation instructions. There's now a reminder for you to disable "safeScripts" just for those who don't like following installation instructions.)
    • Please report exploits and bugs in the API to me (@Reno_fezzed_one) ASAP. I'll try my best to fix them.
    • Yes, "safeScripts" = false has the potential to allow mods to do stuff to your computer. This is why I recommend vetting all mods before using them. You can use the asset_unpacker to unpack the mod and verify my code if you wish. Don't fret -- all Reno's API items are sandboxed so they can't do anything to your computer.
