    I've tried to install the Orcana mod, and have come across a odd situation.
    I've put the .pak where I'm told to put it, yet when I open Starbound and go to the race selection, it isn't there. I have a race extender, so I should be able to see it, it's just not there. Anybody know why?

    I know it's a stupid question, but did you also make sure you installed the Race Extender correctly? Perhaps try a few different extenders. Some may be outdated and non-functional in current versions.

    Sadly, it won't help you at the moment if you are on Mac or Linux, but I've been using ModDrop to manage my mods for me.

    The developers are also pretty easy to get a hold of on Discord if you run into any problems.

    Oh? A dedicated multi-game mod manager?

    That reminds me... I was at one time trying to make an Instance/Mod manager for Starbound in Python.
    Perhaps I should restart work on that... Then again, I didn't get much further than starting to code the UI to look like the mockup.
