    so, i just had to wipe my whole universe, including a few pretty big ongoing projects
    why? because for some reason starbound doesnt launch with steam anymore

    AT ALL!?
    no overlay, all the workshop mods gone (thats why i had to wipe my universe to even be able to play the game without crashing), and no screenshots

    what is happening, and how can i get rid of this issue

    edit:
    the issue can be solved by restarting steam as administrator

    i just reinstalled it, and it didnt change the fact that steam is not a part of this game anymore

    How are you launching the game?

    via steam, thats why it is so weird

    also, whenever i start the game, it opens up a pop up and ask me how i want to launch the game:
    play starbound
    launch dedicated server
    open modding uploading tool
    open 32 bit version

    The popup is normal.

    Doesn't sound like a game issue though.
