Customize & Edit Character

    So I have an idea. There is no way within Starbound to re-make your current chartacter without having to redo your missions and stuff. There are some mods and programs out there to do that, but I've found it very easy to do simply by editing the .player file.

    So, I'm posting this to see what kind of interest there is for someone like me to offer their services to the community to make requested edits to your character. I'll post very thorough instructions on finding the player file, selecting the correct one, BACKING IT UP just in-case, getting the data to me, and activating the changes on your end whenn I'm done, easily.

    I can do things, such as:

    -Change Colors (to any color, partly transparent, and invisible) of:
    • Hair
    • Skin
    • Eyes
    • Underwear
    • Clothing (can even remove colors to make new clothes)
    • Emotes; Open mouth color, tear color, ect.
    -Change Physical Attrabutes:
    • Name
    • Name Color (may not work on some servers)
    • Hair Style (within race)
    • Idle Stance (Body and legs position)
    • Idle Arm Position (Separate from stance)
    • Race
    • Gender
    • Self Damage Impact Sound
    • Self Hurt Sound
    • Tier
    • Crew Size
    • Max Fuel
    • Fuel Efficiency
    • Max Health
    • Max Stamina
    • Max Oxygen
    • Max Food
    -Removing Glitched Items
    -Add Money / Essence
    -Add basic items
    -Duplicate any items in inventory

    Possibly more, but I can't guarantee safety of a .player file beyond this.

    Starcheat can do basically all of this.

    Yep. Sure can. Thanks.
    I'm aiming towards people who don't want to, know how to or can't use StarCheat for whatever reason.

    Hello, Lazy person here. Oh yeah, changing idle stance and arm stance sure will be great. Although there have been new personality types than just four for a while now, but the one combination i wanted wasnt one of them.

    Is there currently even a working starcheat?
  8. Jaxine

    Jaxine Zero Gravity Genie

    I dunno, I read it was outdated somewhere. I'm sure @lazarus78 has that info tho. Curious, what combination were you looking for?
  9. lazarus78

    lazarus78 The End of Time

    Yes I do have that info. There is a working version out there. The I-love-bacon forum has a copy, but it requires registration and an approved post in order to get. I also have a copy but it is on my work computer, so I won't be able to get it till next monday.

    Since it seems to be a pain to get these days, I plan on uploading it and making it more freely avaliable.

    I just found StarCheat for 1.2, and it's not bad. But I find it faster and easier to just make the same edits in JSON. And there's more I can do that StarCheat can't.

    Hello. I find I am overwhelmed by the prospect of an editing attempt on my current character, which is of a modded race--Lamia. I have become dissatisfied with the colouration and hairstyle I chose at character creation. I have made a new character with the customization options I like. I did so with the intention of replacing the original character's appearance settings with the new character's settings. I have read horrifying anecdotes of this method causing Starbound to be unable to read the character file, though. If you have a way of making these small edits without destroying the character, I would love to have your aid.

    I miss the simplicity of TerrariViewer and similar for Terraria. :rofl: This stuff is intimidating.

    Yep, I can help you out. I'll download the Lamia race mod for testing, and I'll need you to send me the .player files for both the character you use and the one you have the colors for. PM me either here or on Steam (same name) I'll help you out.
