 Starbound Factions v0.4
This mod adds Florans, Avians and Novakids from the Starbound game.

Florans:

They are a bit weak in terms of equipment but they are very resistant to gibbing and fall damage. Florans are usually no match for most factions unless they get their hands on foreign equipment.

Avians:
Image
They are a bit weak in terms of equipment but they are very resistant to gibbing and fall damage. Avians are usually no match for most factions either unless they use their expensive energy weapons and mercs.

Novakids:
Image
The units are really weak but also fast and skilled. Unlike Florans and Avians they use actual firearms. They are easy to kill but they are cheap, and their skill and speed can overwhelm a rival faction.

Post Re: Florans v1.8

Version 1.6

ERROR: Couldn't find the preset 'Grenade Fragment Grey' accessed in Floran.rte/Devices/Explosives/Thornnade.ini at line 114

Can be fixed using "Base.rte/Grenade Fragment Grey" instead.

Post Re: Florans v1.8
That's really weird. I never get that error.

Code:
AddGib = Gib
      GibParticle = MOPixel
         CopyOf = Grenade Fragment Grey
      Count = 30
      MinVelocity = 30
      MaxVelocity = 90


This is the piece of code using that, which should only fail if it loads this mod first and then Base.rte, which is impossible, I think.

You don't get this Error in loading screen(which will crash the game), but in console(called out by pressing `). The incorrect loading of Avians mod's lua is also showed in there. So does the Systemworks Technologies mod.
The melee weapons of both SB mods have Lua problem, too:
ERROR: Floran.rte/Devices/Weapons/Impaler.lua:7: attempt to index global 'Unit' (a nil value)
ERROR: Floran.rte/Devices/Weapons/Mauler.lua:7: attempt to index global 'Unit' (a nil value)
ERROR: Floran.rte/Devices/Weapons/Stabber.lua:7: attempt to index global 'Unit' (a nil value)

Just use "local Unit" to define it instead of "Unit" only.

I've fixed and tested above problems, everything works fine in my CC now.

Post Re: Florans v1.8
Oh nice, I didn't know the console would display errors like that.

So the Thornnade thing is Gray instead of Grey but I will just remove it coz those particles cause damage and it casts enough particles anyways.

I'm not getting the melee weapons ones, though. Some of the ranged weapons use lua files with the "Unit" actor call thing too so I should make the changes in those too, maybe?

Small update. Mostly bugfixes and small edits:

-Florans are no longer immune to fall damage. They are still more resistant than vanilla faction units.
-Decreased the health regeneration rate for all Floran units.
-Decreased the amount of blood from Leaf Hair exit wounds.
-Fixed a bug with Thornnades calling wrong gib particles.
-Fixed a bug in some lua files used by melee and some ranged weapons.

Thanks Xery for the help!

Post Re: Florans v1.9
I guess it's time to update my starbound factions now. I'll just use this thread, edit it and put all starbound factions in this one instead of making separated thread for each, like I was doing. I wish I could merge the Avian one with this one.

So, apart from some fixes and edits, I'll be adding the Apex as a faction. The wiki says they are like a lot more advanced than humans so I will probably make them use something in between projectile and energy weapons... mass accelerators maybe, like gauss weapons or rail ones and the like.

For now, I've almost finished with the Floran/Avian updates plus the Florans will have a throwing version of impalers.

 Re: Starbound Factions v0.1
Alright, I merged both Florans and Avians factions into this thread. I also updated both. Here's the changes:

-All Florans and Avians now use jetpacks. The ai is currently unable to navigate some areas otherwise.
-Florans and Avians are now made of Flesh instead of Armored Flesh, at least the almost naked ones. They are still quite resistant to damage.
-Floran/Avian bodyparts will drop Pixels when gibbed now. Each pixel count as 4 gold.
-The custom materials don't need an index anymore so they cannot be replaced by other custom materials using the same index.
-Bonemold/Beakweave now turn into ash instead of bone/civilian stuff when settled in terrain so it's easier to remove.
-Removed some redundant sprites and pieces of code from the files.


NOTE: The previous update I was working on before died along with my old laptop a while ago.


EDIT: New update, lads. Here's the changelog:

-Added Novakids as their own faction.
-Florans and Avians now make chatter sounds when selected and pain sounds when hit hard enough.
-Edited and added new sounds for some of the devices.
-Edited the gibs or most bodyparts and devices so their destruction is better looking.
-Most weapons have less or no recoil transmission, meaning less actor pushing when firing.
-Made some misc small changes and removed redundant pieces of code and sprites from the files.
-Fixed a muzzle flash in the Avian Laser handguns and rife that would appear at random when holding down the fire button.
-Fixed Floran tribal masks breaking in one hit.

Post Re: Starbound Factions v0.3
New update for this faction. Here's the changelog:

Novakids
-Added a new unit type, Novakid Snugget. It's made of the same gas material as Novakids. They can jump and bark as a way to attack. The bark only appears harmless.
-Added stride movement sounds for the humanoid units. Their bodies also make a different sound when they hit the ground.
-Removed dependencies on vanilla factions to avoid compatibility issues. Some code still reference stuff from the Base.rte content.
-Replaced the shotguns reload sound so they no longer sound like pump-action shotguns.
-Edited the Hunting Knife. It's a bit more balanced in their damage output.
-Made some small edits to some of the weapon and gib sprites.
-Updated the Ammo.ini with more general particles with different enough stats to be used as rounds for the available guns. All projectile weapons deal a bit more damage in general.
-Fixed the wrong item description in the Willbreaker.
-Fixed a number of bugs in some lua files that would cause console errors and lag but still work.

Floran
-Removed dependencies on vanilla factions to avoid compatibility issues. Some code still reference stuff from the Base.rte content.
-Spike rounds are heavier but less penetrating now. This make spike rounds do less against armored units but get an increased stopping power.
-Floran spike throwers are generally better at dealing with lightly armored units now. They are less likely to cause no damage at all like they used to.
-Floran Hunters and Mercs now get aiming and reloading bonuses whith the magazine-fed spike thrower Marauder.
-Added stride movement sounds for the units. Their bodies also make a different sound when they hit the ground.
-The Skewer spike thrower is less likely to gib a bodypart. It also doesn't require Hunters or Mercs to crouch to get its aiming range bonus but the range has been decreased a bit.
-Edited all melee weapons. They are a bit more balanced in their damage output.
-Made some small edits to some of the weapon and gib sprites.
-Fixed a number of bugs in some lua files that would cause console errors and lag but still work.

Avian
-Removed dependencies on vanilla factions to avoid compatibility issues. Some code still reference stuff from the Base.rte content.
-Nerfed all energy weapons, including grenades. They are still deadly weapons but to unarmored or lightly armored bodyparts.
-Avians are slightly weaker now but also lighter, which means their jetpacks struggle less with heavier Avians.
-Added stride movement sounds for the units. Their bodies also make a different sound when they hit the ground.
-Edited all melee weapons. They are a bit more balanced in their damage output.
-Made some small edits to some of the weapon and gib sprites. Energy beams were also edited to look better.
-Fixed a number of bugs in some lua files that would cause console errors and lag but still work.


EDIT: New update for all 3 factions with the latest fixes and some misc edits. Here's the changelog:

-Getting hit in the head might knockback or flip soldiers, depending on the rounds hitting them. Florans and Avians only.
-The chin armor in Floran Warrior helms are now separated items covering the lower part of the head.
-Weapons now make sounds when they break.
-Edited the ammo.ini file so the rounds don't destroy terrain as easily and rebalanced most guns.
-Minor edits to most of the ini files and fixed some bugs found along the way.
