Drumsticks + Tail Feathers

Birdlike your birdfolk!

Changes the Avian sprites to add a fluffy feathered tail and drumsticks (instead of thosd feathered hands) so they actually look like burds! :D

Mod originally uploaded to the Starbound Mod Repository by HoaxRumors in collaboration with RyuujinZero.

This is not my mod, all the credit and work goes to them!

Should be 100% multiplayer safe! (Mod is client-based)
Should be compatible with future Starbound versions!
Also safe to use with head sprite mods. (As long as they don't modify body files)
NOT compatible with other mods which change Avian Body Sprites!

Other versions of Drumsticks + Tail Feathers and Better Avians
(more will be added if requested)
(Make sure to be suscribed to only one mod at a time!!)

Drumsticks & Tail Feathers: [Current]

Same here with both genders. I am confused with what is going on

For what ever reason, my female Avians only get the new hands and lack the changed feet or tail feathers. This is even if I'm not subbed the mod and have my own pack of textures in the mods folder. Very weird.

@SeaStorm I don't think it will work with Avian Armwings as i assume it uses the default sprite system of Starbound, which would mean the arm feathers are an arm sprite replacement instead of an addon and will conflict with the sprites this mod has.
However it is possible to easily merge them with GIMP (which is free) or Photoshop, just find both modfiles (forgot the path, sorry), unpack them and copy-paste them on different layers, then just edit them and replace at your discretion.

Also, i honestly had no idea about the Wings of Fire franchise, thanks for mentioning it tho, i'll definitely check it out later.
As for the picture, it's pretty old (and i haven't changed it because i'm not very active on Steam anymore, my PC died some time ago, rip) so i don't remember the exact info or artist, but it's just a character that person made, i don't think it's based off anything specific, she just liked dragons.

Kyo21943, is your profile pic a NightWing? i read Wings of Fire on my second time through it and your profile pic looks like a NightWing maybe a hybrid cuz the frill but yeah it looks like one.

do you think this would work with Avian Armwings?

finally someone who makes avian's cooler, dunno why everyone wants to remove their breasts, who are they to say alien birds can't evolve a chest like that. if they want to be THAT technical, only humans should have breasts. apex shouldn't, or any of the other mamals. look at a pic of a female chimp, no breasts. (unless she has kids) bit of a rant over nothing but still. xP
