The Radium Expansion v1.42 by Magitek =================================== The Radium Expansion adds a new difficulty tier to the Starbound Beta 'Furious Koala'. The new Omega sector ranges in planet-level from 11-25 and holds the key to the new advanced ores 'Radium' and 'Iridium'. The sector can be unlocked by finding the X Sector tech and then constructing the Omega sector map. Weapons and armors are craft-able after unlocking the Omega sector through the metalwork table. The nano-pickaxe is craft-able after just unlocking the X sector. The new equipment is designed to withstand the harsher environments of the Omega sector and should be procured immediately. Radium ore can be found generally on any planet with levels 11 and greater, while the iridium ore is more elusive and is found deep underground. The Radium Expansion REQUIRES a new character due to the new sector (note below on installing into old characters). TRE will only work in multiplayer if other players/servers have the mod installed. New weaponry, armor and ores New pickaxe To the new and most dangerous sector yet The Omega sector Only the most seasoned explorers will survive in such a sector (Planet levels 11-25). Brave the dangers, bring home some new loot. Good luck! Download ============ You can download the mod either at the Nexus (http://www.nexusmods.com/starbound/mods/80/?) or here at putlocker: http://www.putlocker.com/file/8BEA8A9706B38B03 Installation ============ Extract the contents of RadiumExpansion.zip directly to your Starbound/mods/ folder. (The starbound folder is usually located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\) If you have no mods folder, you will need to create one and place the extracted files into it. Extracting the zip to the right location should give you /Starbound/mods/Radium/ You can now start a new character and search out the Omega sector! Updating from an older version Follow the usual installation steps, you will not require a new game if you had TRE install previously. Uninstalling ============ Remove the Radium folder from your mods directory. Uninstalling the mod is not possible without removing characters created with it. Characters that started with the mod will generally not be salvagable after the removal of the Omega sector. It may also be required to remove any characters from the players folder that were created with the expansion if you experience crashing after removing the mod. Known issues ============ If The Radium Expansion is installed, older characters may not be able to access the starmap until the mod is disabled. TRE is only designed for new characters. Remove the /mods/radium/ folder if you wish to play on older characters. Balance seems good at maximum level with the best TRE equipment, but it may change in future patches, rendering the new equipment less useful. Please remember that Starbound is currently in BETA, I cannot be held accountable for your characters spontaneously exploding etc. Overrides ========= The Radium Expansion overrides a critical gameplay file which may limit compatibility with future patches and other mods: \biomes\oredistributions.configfunctions (radium and iridium ore distribution) I recommend using Winmerge or similar to compare files and resolve conflicts should they occur with a future patch or another mod. Note: TRE does not overwrite any Starbound data. It is a self contained mod. Installing without a new character (unsupported! note: no omega sector) =============================================== If you wish to add TRE to an already active character, you must delete the celestial.config file from \Mods\Radium\ Please note Radium and Iridium are extremely rare in Sector X and may only be found in small quantities on unexplored level 10 planets. Asteroids above planets may provide some radium and iridium also.
