Race differentiates the different species in Starbound. There are seven playable races in the game, each with their own distinct background lore.
Each race has unique aesthetics, such as ship design, way of speech and NPC building architecture. The Player has the ability to unlock race-specific features through gameplay.
Races also have separate armor tiers. The differences are purely aesthetic differences, with no change gameplay-wise from one race's armor to another's.
