    Yes you can do that. You'll need to patch player.config to edit the capacity of each bag (what you think of as tabs).

    Then you need to patch playerinventory.config to edit the grids to match your new capacity. Also need to move a couple buttons around like the close button.
    You'll need to edit the footer, header, and background images so it doesn't look terrible with an item grid in mid-air.

    And for your trouble, your old characters won't be usable anymore unless you want to manually edit them using the command line tools in \starbound\win32\

    While you still may not prefer my inventory, check out my reskin if you haven't. FYI I'm soon to put out some patches for my inventory that can make it larger than it is already, or smaller than it is already - since I've had both request. Actually they're already done I just haven't released them. But if you can't figure this out on your own, they're pretty well the most perfect example you could ask for.

    If you do edit that mod, please get his permission before doing something like distributing it to others.

    sooo the anther of the mod gave me some instructions on how to edit ever i barely understood it all

    if anyone is interested in doing this i'll just post what the author said and leave it to you guys

    Author's text: v

    ( part 1: )

    It's been a while since I haven't touched starbound as a whole but you can take my mod file from the workshop folder on your pc

    located at "\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\211820" (in one of the numbered files, so you will need to do a bit of research to see which one is my mod)

    and then you can unpack the .pak with the unpacker at

    "\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\win32" (or download a .pak unpacker on internet)

    after that you will have access to all the mod files and you will be able to change it like on the link you sent by chaning the .config

    ( part 2: )

    (you can also change the background image located in /Interface/Inventory) so it fits the new size

    Then you can either compress it back into a .pak (when you're done) or just put the mod folder in

    "\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\Mods" (make sure to delete or unsubscribe from the mod if you're putting the mod in the mods folder though)

    and voilĂ , you got yourself a bigger, better looking inventory :)

    you and everyone else have my permission to edit the files just as long as you don't publish it on internet or somewhere else (and give credits and such)
