Starting with a fresh template:

Unzip the file and put it into your mods folder.

Run the .bat file and choose a name longer than 3 characters, lowercase only, no spaces. (note .bat files are for windows only)

Open starbound and you should see a pale bald human with the female wearing green in your list.

If you do, then hoorah! you can now begin editing, if not, check your log file at starbound/storage. You can open it up in notepad++

If you aren't running windows then you will either need a program or to manually change all instances of skadvtest to your chosen race name.

Known issues from bat:
Check dialog files to make sure they have been renamed by the bat file.
