Xeno's InvaderZim Race Mod 2.8

Play as the Irken and Vortian Race from Invader Zim.

  1. XenoMind
    Frackin Universe Addon:

    1.3 Compatible. A lot of Irken Tech has been moved to the new Irken Assembler Crafting table. Craft it by pressing C to build vehicles, augments, weapons, special PAKs, and armor.

    Irken planets have a greater chance of showing up with newly made characters.

    Warning if you have a Irken character previously the change of Material IDs will cause your ship walls to fill with dirt. To fix this delete your ship world, restart a new game, or replacecurrent the shipwalls manually. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Starbound\storage\player. Once there, find your latest SHIPWORLD file and delete it if you wish to delete your ship world file.

    Hello Everyone! This is my first mod. There was a previous outdated Irken mod before. So to bring back that experience I decided to create my own from scratch! There are some bugs here and there, so this mod is not finished.

    Compressed and made selecting antennae on Irkens easier
    Fixed a bug where the Modular Irken Mecha Claw would freeze in place and render the mech unuseable.
    Fixed Muzzlefire on irken shotgun and machinegun


    Megadoomer might lag sometimes, and can be buggy. It's spawn effect is also invisible.
    PAK protections fail briefly when teleporting back to the ship. (none game breaking but can be annoying on poison planets)
    SpittleRunner's muzzle fire is invisible.
    Flying vehicles have problems with clipping sometimes.
    Upgraded tiered ship has graphical problems tier 5-8
    Vending machine image shows double images when it shouldn't.
    Possibly other bugs. (let me know if you run into any and I'll fix them)
    Some crashes may occur


    Changed the color of Irken tables slightly so they don't clash as much with the background at the outpost.
    Vort dogs require a inferior brain instead of cooked fish.
    Irken Assembler now requires a superior brain to reach tier3.
    Mobs drop brains when killed with the Irken brain extractor.

    Planned Updates

    Add more NPC names that are more Irken-like.
    More Irken food items
    Add better dye colors for other colors besides red and purple.
    More Irken Furniture.
    Tier 1 and 2 ranged weapons.
    Possibly weakness to contaminated or swamp water. Or add additional polluted water weather effect or polluted water pools.
    Custom death animations.
    Sir attack pet.

    I'm always open for more ideas. Weaknesses, strengths,weapons, armor, and anything. Suggestions are most welcome!

    Special thanks to cipherGeneticist for making the GirSuit

    The mod is simply great, but there is a problem with the Irken PAK, it is not in the storage on the boat at the beginning. And I wonder when the mod will be updated

      Done, it should work now. If you still have issues. Contact me and I'll try getting it working again^^

    For now I will give it 4 stars, not because the mod is bad, but a little unfinished, and the author even explained why.
    Still, i'ts one of my favorite race mods as it adds stuff to the base game that isnt game breaking, a thing I really like! The sprites are nicely done, and as I could see in the pirate ships, they fit nicely with other ingame materials!

    Why is this only 3.5 stars? This mod only keeps on improving and more stuff is being added quite regularly; I love it.

    Good work on the project Xeno.

    This mod has immense and amazing work put into it. The visuals, themes, dialogue and environments are great. The amount of references to Irken equipment and specific plot points really give it life and depth that I can truly appreciate.

    However, there is an unforgivable sin: You can't wear any other EPP besides the Irken PAK or you will die! Bye bye lanterns and wings. I can't give up baked-in darkness visibility or the ability to float around for this.

      Hi, thanks for your review. But I don't see why you'll give my mod a 2 star. 2 star means my mod is below average, and is bad. Also the Irken PAKs and later in the game Augments in the PAKs and late game armors allow you to light your way and add stacking if you must need lanterns or gravity. You can always put a cosmetic over the PAKs too.

    I can't tell you how hyped I am that this mod is getting so many updates!

    The Megadoomer Giiiir! The most powerful stealth robot in the Irken military. Built by conquered Vort scientists actually.
