    This first version is pretty rough and unfinished but already an easy tool to create a simple gun mod.


    the content of the .zip file:
    [​IMG]
    resses: in this folder are some example files if you want to test the modmaker or just see what you need for your gun
    gun.xml: this is the setup for the parameters of your gun files you can add parameters if you want....
    StarboundModmaker.jar: this is main program to create your mod (there are several files for the specific java version and operating system)

    this is how the modmaker looks like:

    if you finished the setup of your gun scroll down and press the Create mod button...

    Simply put your created mod into the "Starbound\mods" folder and have fun ;)

    Its good! Although its only a text creation program with presets, its still something that will get the newbies
    up and running till they figure out how to make guns. (I must say though, its actually very easy to make
    mods with starbound.)

    Either way, good job. Liked!

    EDIT: Is it a false flag? My antivirus is going nuts around this, so is google chrome.

    hmm thats strange i tried it several times with chrome and on another laptop... maybe it's because of the .bat? what does it say?

    It may be because of the .bat, my antivirus is a modified version of Trend Micro and AVG, (To be more up to date with custom file recognition).
    Because of this it usually is more paranoid than basic AV programs.

    Seems like a really nice way to give the user a visual overview. I think if you develop this further and with more categories it could become really popular. As someone who only recently began learning how to mod and had tolook through tons of files, this could be a far easier alternative for those without the patience.

    You might want to modify the names of the fields, shouldn't be hard to do.
    Suggestion:

    - Change shortdescription to Name
    - Change itemName to Identifier

    So on, so forth.

    Edit: What did you make this in?

    Yeah i agree, if people choose this option it's likely they haven't got much experience with modding beforehand and therefor need more approchable names.

    I can't get it to run. Not the .bat or the jar. Win Xp.

    Ghoul159 Scruffy Nerf-Herder

    you just have to select one gunimage no single parts like in the random generated weapons...

    is there any error message in the bat console?
