    This is a wonderful mod! So many great props. I've found an issue with the dorm room toilet though. If the front is facing left, anything that sits on it gains the ability to levitate a few blocks left.

    Well the Protectorate objects not part of the set I made I just made available for sale in the mod catalogue - I hadn't changed any of their properties or anything. Which means this error is probably on the vanilla game's part. The devs never intended for players to spawn those objects in themselves, so it's likely they didn't code for sitting on it in the opposite direction. I can see if I can try to patch it though in the next update for the mod.

    Oh. Alright. Thanks!

    Do you know how to write a patch for an object? I tried to patch the Protectorate Academy door (since it apparently doesn't have the door colony tag), but it didn't work. I think it has something to do with the path. Could you tell me how that works? Is it something like "/protectoratedoor" or "objects/doors/protectoratedoor"?

    here's a tip: take the .object file's text from the /protectoratedoor folder, and paste it into this website in both the left and right textboxes. leave the code in the left box as is (remove all comments // from it though, if it has any or it wont read it) and the box on the right is where you put your version (what the file will look like NATURALLY, not patched, in your case with the added door colony tag). then it'll spit out the appropriate patch in the purple box below. does that makes sense? it makes patching things waaaaay easier than trying to do it yourself imo.

    THANK YOU. This is so helpful. It also got me to unpack the Starbound pak. Now I know that the Protectorate door didn't even have a colonyTags section. I'll go and make a patch for the toilet now.

    EDIT: The patches aren't working. I have a few more things to try, but I have to shut my computer down.

    are you sure you uploaded the correct file? i have been unable to locate any of the new objects in the .pak currently downloadable, i even unpacked it to root around in the innards to be sure. i can't find any of the new items

    Edit: i grabbed the steam version to confirm, steam has the files, but the forum version does not

    Edit #2: i might as well just add a suggestion while i'm at it, with one of my favorite holidays around the corner, i'd LOVE if your mod had a seasonal decor section, with halloween decor(pumpkins, tiny ghost garlands, cheap paper skeleton wall hangings, the vibrating spooky ghosts, pumpkin carving kit, bats on string, cheap foam tombstones, candy bowls, decorative cobwebs, classic-witch-crashed-into-wall, rubber zombie hands jutting out of the ground, ect. ect... every sort of cheesy halloween shop decor you can think of)

    i'd love to see your take on things like christmas-season stuff, especially some of the things related to how japan celebrates it(IT'S A HYLOTL CHRISTMAS) which is wonderfully different from the western style:

    snow bunnies, christmas fried chicken(yes, really) origami santas, christmas cake, christmas sushi, kotatsu tables, i even saw a godzilla topiary with christmas lights on google images. japan's christmas has no religious trappings, they have fully embraced the idea of spending the holiday with loved ones, and it's so beautifully anti-consumerism in how they approach it

    easter is also neglected, and popular in japan because it's simply fun, then there's white day, a variation on valentines(similar decor, mostly white/blue/silver color scheme), since japan has two separate valentines days, one for each gender to profess affection towards those they care about

    then of course there is the new years trappings and decor, so many ideas for ways to build and celebrate, mostly i'd love to see decor related to the more widely celebrated holidays that have notable events and festivals, especially things that could bring life to builds at those times of year, i always seek to celebrate holidays with my friends online, and the idea of building a big spooky halloween village with them, or redecorating our homes to suit the season, is something i'd love very much, and starbound's "halloween-ish" decor is very sparse

    i love seeing how different cultures celebrate holidays, japan is an easy example that comes to mind because they have embraced western holidays for how they fit into their own culture, and it's become something beautifully different, that makes me desire to see how starbound's races view each one, and how their own culture would celebrate them. undersea christmas seaweed trees with bioluminescent fish bred as lights, avians being ESPECIALLY fixated on easter due to their own culture having a weird fixation on eggs and rabbits. florans celebrating halloween by being extra crazy, novakids would likely enjoy holidays for the wild parties and they're there so briefly they don't have time to get bored of it, apex dystopian holidays would be interesting in their own right

    aw, I still think it looks cute! I really like the way you used the spotlight in there. And hey! They've got a pretty nice refreshments stand in the back, no?

    Yeah, I put in a concession stand and ticket desk. Personally, snacks are half the fun of going to the movies.

    Just what my new Protectorate Hospital needs! And also, all the other medbays I've built over my colonies.

    i had a random idea involving a "puppet show" booth, with a floran and hylotl puppet doing the "punch and judy" routine

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punch_and_Judy

    really it would just involve a few frames of the two puppets smacking the crap out of each other

    I redownloaded the .pak file, but none of the new content is appearing. Am I missing something?

    Have you tried redownloading it? And if so, maybe switch to admin mode??

    Yep, already tried both. Didn't change anything.
