Creating Mods

The basics of modding in Starbound involve creating a new directory named after your mod (no spaces) within the "\mod" directory, and then filling it with asset directories and a MODINFO file.

MODINFO File

This is a simple file that the game uses to provide information about the mod. Create a Text file, copy and paste the code below (change values as necessary) and save, then change the file name from ".txt" to ".modinfo".

{
  "name" : "MOD NAME",
  "version" : "Glad Giraffe",
  "path" : ".",
  "dependencies" : [],
  "metadata" : {
    "author" : "MOD AUTHOR",
    "version" : "MOD VERSION",
    "description" : "MOD DESCRIPTION"
  }
}
