Shellguard: Starbound Expansion Remastered

Welcome to the Shellguard: Starbound Expansion remaster!

This mod is a remake of my old Shellguard mod, seen here.

We have a public discord here!

This mod is a full expansion to Starbound, focused around a new faction called Shellguard. Shellguard is a large scale mercenary group as well as a weapons, robotics and gear manufactuer. The mod includes a MASSIVE amount of new weapons and gear, new missions, dungeons, new bosses and even more to come in the future!

To begin with the mods content, you can craft a shop from the third tier inventors table. From there, you can buy all sorts of gear and weapons, plus you'll be able to buy a teleporter to the hub world of the Shellguard mod. A large outpost on an alpine world, the hub will give you access to all sorts of content, such as quests, unique items, special story missions and more.

Some of the features of this mod, listed:
A completely lore and theme friendly mod to the base game, that won't conflict with other mods!
An incredible amount of fun, unique guns, including a custom gun system so you can build your own!
Robots such as drones, tanks and sentry guns that you can create that will help you fight, move around and explore!
A brand new hub world, seperate from the outpost.
Mercenary missions and Arena fights, complete them for money and loot!
Shellguard related story missions.
Themed dungeons for planet generation!
Difficult end-game content, which the base starbound lacks!
Terrifying new bosses, with more on the way!
Unique tools to help you navigate around planets.
Powerful base defenses, such as automatic guns and flak turrets!
Brutal new mech parts!
Themed Decorations!
Flyable Gunships!
And much, much more!

This mod should be completely compatible with any other mod out there. (With exception of the original mod.) This includes Frackin Universe, which it is fully compatible with.

Please consider donating to me to help me develop the mod. Game development isn't cheap and your support would go a LONG way!

I have many plans to expand on this mod, enough content plans to rival the main game's story in size, or even bigger.
If you want to see what I'm working on, or even contribute yourself, then please join the discord at the top of the page.

Your support would go a long way to developing this mod!

I have a cool weapon idea but it would use the lockjaw as its base, in the mod page on Chucklfish forums says I need explicit permission for asset usage, would it be ok to use that weapon?

Please provide a log containing the error, this has been used many times in multiplayer with no issues, so I'm not sure what would cause it with that information.

I forgot which, but I believe it's one of the base game music tracks slowed down.

Shellguard seems to be causing crashes on my friends server. We are using FU. It works just fine in single player, but when you add it to the server you have to change the name of the file. It crashes when you place the guard-mart vendor in the server or bring in any items from Shellguard into his server.
