INSTALLATION: See Readme, included in file.

Please keep in mind this is a mod for a game in beta. All balancing is subject to change--I am waiting for Starbound to get closer to final release before tweaking balance for these items. Starbound beta patches are likely to break elements of this mod; I will try to keep the mod working for the latest patch and definitely for final release.


PLEASE REPORT ALL BUGS! :)
