Starbound worlds looks pretty amazing and it's time to build up something really big.

Can you, please, guide me how to add pixels to a specific character? Is there any way to achieve that with a command in-game or via any characters-related config files.

Any specific doc reference will be appreciated!


Update

Considering answer. I'm wondering if there a PC tool to edit character file.

Without installing any mods or other utilities:

First activate admin mode by running:

/admin

Then we spawn in the item for pixels (called money in the code). You can replace x in this command with the amount you want.

/spawnitem money x

The pixels will spawn in the world at your cursor. If you get a Perfectly Generic Item instead, check wether you entered the command correctly. If it errors, check the command or lower x.

Lastly, to leave admin mode:

/admin

This won't work in multiplayer unless you are the host.

EDIT: With the 1.1 update adding Essence as a currency for the Vaults, the procedure should remain largely the same. Just replace the spawnitem command with this one:

/spawnitem essence x

essence is the name for Essence in the code. Once again, replace x with the amount you want.

An easier way would be to make an Extractor and spawn in Solarium Stars. These give a ton of pixels when broken down.

You can merely use /admin and craft your way to the top tiers, then use the Atomic Furnance (the maximum level forge) to mass-produce Solarium Stars, then place a Refinery and force-feed the Solarium into pixels.

StarReader is an editor where you can change any value of your Character wich means you can also change the amount of Pixels you have

  • All works. Additional. (1) Used <c>\<program_fils>\Steam\SteamApps\common\Starbound\giraffe_storage\player in order to find player save. (2) Player save file will have .player at the end.
