Do you have a game called Starbound? Do you want to enjoy it but with various levels of fatness? For a personalized look or to steadily gain weight over time? Not just for yourself but for others? Then please read below.
PLEASE, please, please read everything here. So many people don’t and I’m not sure how much simpler I have to spell instructions on how to properly install the mod without being asked directly constantly.
For those who are new, this is a mod I’ve made for a simple game known as Starbound. Trying to find a way to implement fatty bodies in an unusual manner. Instead of creating a body replacer to turn every generic npc and player into a chubster or blob. It implements armor in the shape of such fattened bodies to allow for greater freedom. Various sizes that can go through weight gain.
With the link below, make sure you extract the folder and look inside it. You will find the Big Fatties pak file as well as the QuickbarMini mod. With those two, find the location of the mods folder for starbound to place them in. Then locate the position of the mods folder within the starbound directory.
Do not drop the folder containing the pak files into the mods folder. Seriously do not do this it is not correct. Put the paks themselves into the mods folder. Don’t try to unpack the pak files, they work fine as is. You don’t have to unpack them for it to work.
If there are details you are confused about with installing mods in general for starbound, please look up a guide to help. Starbound’s modding community is large and has plenty of them to work with and help with those basics. Once everything is set, you can check the mods list from starbound’s menu to check if they are there and functioning.
Once they’re inside the mods folder correctly you can load up your character. There will be two unique crafting stations in the basic crafting menu. The Big Fatties Store for a bunch of food, furniture, and items. And a weight scale that sells outfit bags to give you the various stages of fatness tailored for your character, as well as the means to increase the size of vanilla outfits that are currently supported.
The second part requires the QuickbarMini mod to function. A unique ui that’ll give your character many options. To gain weight, have that weight impact your mobility, larger hitboxes, make your character busty or bottom heavy. With options to tweak various settings such as how easily food makes you gain weight, how quickly it digests into fat and how quickly you lose it. It even comes with Vore, if you’re into that of course. Accessed by clicking on the red box in the ui. And if not, you can just ignore it.
Things To Do
If you want to fatten up npcs and not just yourself. Go to the Big Fatties store and grab a lard shake gun, and fire away at anyone. It won’t work on everyone, certain npcs are invulnerable to this method. Such as the entirety of the Outpost. If you want to minimize the risk of fattening friendlies, for the most part, and keep it for enemies. Grab the fatray. Does the same thing as the lard shake gun. Just doesn’t work on many friendly npcs. The feeding tube furniture also works, so long as its the npc compatible one noted in the description. You will have to be patient though as npcs interact with furniture whenever they feel like it, not when you want them to. If you’d like to fix npcs fattened up, you can also get an alternate lard shake gun that’ll reset their weight. Only works for npcs.
If you experience trouble with weight, there are two methods to take note of. The treadmill will help you get back to a desired weight in just a brief amount of time. If however you’re on the go or in a dungeon and cannot use the treadmill, stock up on digestion aids.They’ll slowly help you trim weight as well as try to empty your stomach if it’s full of food. Both are purchasable from the Big Fatties store.
Do keep in mind this support works for vanilla, humanoid starbound races. As well as the popular Avali mod race. Any other modded race will have no to bad results Look out for anyone who wants to make support for your favorite race, as Avali is the only one getting support. There is an exception to note in the form of novakids. As the full body glow unique to the novakids doesn’t mesh well with the armor method.The option is still there, but making it function the same has been fruitless. So be understanding if it looks odd.
The armors cover the vanilla races in five stages of fatness. From thick, to chubster, to plump, to fatty, ending with blob. Varying sizes to flesh out your characters with and the rest of the universe.
