    Recenty (like a couple days ago), I've begun work on a gun mod to add a "BFG" weapon type into the game including random generation and craftable BFGs (and possibly some more). I've been spending time looking at outdated tutorials and referencing unpacked assets and I've got something together, but it doesn't work. Every time I attempt to start Starbound I'm faced with an error.
    Now I have little experience with programming so I'm a bit lost on where I've made a mistake or if "8 : 3" even means anything about where "" needs to go. If someone can help me out with this I'd very much appreciate it!

    Check the starbound.log file for more detailed information about the error. Posting the 'broken' JSON would be convenient for people who can help too.
    Just looking at what you posted I'm guessing you didn't close a string properly or have a quote as part of a string.
