    Improper conversion map from null generally means you have a bracket some where in the wrong place - or you are either missing a bracket some where.
    I suggest comparing your file with vanilla files and look for missing brackets or accidentally added extra brackets.
    You could even some times be completely missing a certain line - though those majority of the time results in "get" errors.


    Just incase you still haven't gotten it. unpack to the latest assets.
    And just copy and paste copper drill code and make the changes.

    I can't install the character creation mod. Whenever I do, the game crashes and I get this message:


    Am I doing something wrong? If the mod is just not up-to-date is there a working mod that I can use for custom races?

    The last time that was updated was Feb 20th, 2014 (nearly a year ago). There are a ton of alternatives, though. If you only want a few slots you can use my mod

    You should post that in the Frackin Universe Discussion thread.
    Just go to Frackin Universe on the top you will see Discussions.
    Or on the right side you will see Ask Questions \ Get Support.

    Both lead to the same place.

    well i give up... I kept trying but I keep getting lost at the mod pack part as I try and install the Lucario mod so maybe I should stick to normal characters.

    Hi im trying to install the fps booster mod but i dont think its working what am i doing wrong?
    I just download the zip file and extract it to the "giraffe storage" -> "mods" folder.

    If the file is a modpak. Place the modpak directly into the starbound \ giraffe_storage \ mods folder
    Also make sure the mod is upto date for upbeat giraffe.

    I don't know how the mod owner zipped the file
    Look at the examples providded in the image and do what is needed.

    If it is a modpak file it goes directly into mods folder.
    If its a unpacked file it needs to be inside its own folder inside mods folder.

    Think i've found the answer to this one.

    Where you've got this line:
    "strikeSound" : "/sfx/tools/drill_hit.wav",

    Change it to look like this:
    "strikeSounds" : [ "/sfx/tools/drill_hit.wav" ],

    Let me know if that works or not.

    Telling us "I'm crashing" doesn't help. In order to debug your issue, we need to know what is inside your starbound.log file.

    Read this, follow the instructions, and make a new thread.

    hey uh dude I'm a llittle confused on how to installed unpacked mods you mentioned "they have there own directory" but.. i still don't really get it so i just tried loading all of the files into the actual mod folder or am i being an idiot and do i have to put them all in the desired folders

    Just drop the folder into the mod folder.
    You will know you are doing it right when you see the modinfo file 1 level below the starbound/mods folder.

    I honestly didn't even know there were mods for this game. I am now extremely happy I know how to install them. Thank you.

    Hi everyone, I'm having trouble with two mods using the same dlg file as a trigger. I was wondering if there's a way I could alter one of the files to get them both to work. I don't want to change the trigger for either file. I tried altering the file name of one but it didnt work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
