I’m planning on making a mod for Starbound where the seven playable races can inflate like balloons. Here’s some details:
For one, it will be incompatable with Big Fatties. For another, it’ll just affect the following races: Human, Avian, Apex, Novakid, Hylotl, Glitch, and Floran. It won’t affect any additional mod races, unfortunately.
There’ll be a shop that you can place on the planet itself rather than inside the ship.
There will be different types of inflation: Air, Helium, Blueberry, Gas, you name it.
Bursting will happen in the mod if the player or NPC of the seven afforementioned races is inflated too much.
This will not affect the NPC races like Penguin.
There’ll also be a mechanic where sharp objects like spikes will deal more damage when inflated.
Lastly, there’ll be specific weapons and “tools” that the player can use.
I’ll be making this mod sometime in the future (with some help, of course), so please look forward to it.
