    Hi, I'm trying to create a species mod and am in need of help. I'm new at this and with what I got, it seems that everything is in proper order but it crashes every time I try to use it with the game. Any suggestions?

    Check your log file. Its called starbound.log (no numbers)
    Starbound/storage
    You can paste it here using pastebin.com

    Huuuummm are you sure this is your starbound.log (without numbers) ? Its quite short... n lacking information. This log does not tell me anything.

    The noid specie has a problem in its noid.species file. line 99 character 2 should be } or ,

    I'm not sure what causes the crash upon selecting the custom species. I looked over the log and honestly don't know where it went wrong.

    100+ errors. Looks like you've removed some mods lately, and some current characters/universe are looking for it.

    While making your custom race, its a good idea to remove other mods and have a fresh universe n player file going so you can ensure all errors in your log are from your mod.

    Ok I'll do that.

    Hmm did you remove the old player and universe files?

    How bout removing all the other mods. If that still has the same error, then I am at a loss unless you wanna show me your mod. ?_?

    The part that I was modifying the most was the species file, if you were wondering.

    Aha the problem has come from your body/hair/undy colouring.

    I haven't explored exactly went wrong, but I have replaced it with the hylotl colouring and it works a treat. I'm sure you are fine to keep tinkering from there.
