We have released our custom Starbound launcher (windows only), that is integrated into iLoveBacons Servers and with features that will ease your Starbound experience. Feel free to give your feedback so we can improve it!

Download The Launcher

First Launch Tutorial (open spoiler below)
Now when you download the launcher, you are downloading the updater. The updater will then proceed to download the launcher. When you first launch the updater it will perform some initial setup. This may look suspicious to your computer and/or anti-virus. I assure you that its completely safe.

The exact method that the launcher setups is as follows:
1. Copy Updater to an appropriate folder
2. Launch copy and close current updater (this is where anti-virus kicks up stinks)
3. Delete the previous updater and proceed to download the launcher.

You may find it more convenient to allow this program to run in the future if Windows asks you about it:


Steam Integration Tutorial (open spoiler below)
The launcher has had to adapt to Starbounds new system of launching. Now, instead of attempting to automatically set itself up as steams default, it will create a shortcut on your desktop that will allow you to launch without steam.

If you would like to launch through steam, here is a tutorial:


oinkheart Features:
:coffee: Player Backups with AutoBackup Feature, every time you press play all your players are backup, if something goes wrong with your player, like someone griefs/steals or you just want to revert to how it was before, now you can!
  • It reads your players via [Character Name] [Playtime], then lets you make your own backups, on the bottom left you see auto-backups, Freshest being the last time you pressed Play, Stale being the one before that.


:coffee: iLoveBacons Server Status and PlayerList, the launcher updates every minute our server information, clicking on the left button next to players online will open the player list, in there you can see all players online (by join time, oldest to newest), if you need to party a friend with color codes that's the best, double click a name and it copies it for you!


:coffee: iLoveBacons News, on the left side it grabs 2 feeds from iLoveBacons and Starbound so you always updated with the news!


Uninstall Instructions
If you want to uninstall the launcher, you will have to manually move some files around.

First, you must go where your starbound is located, which should be at the following location (or similar):
Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound
Then go into the folder where the launcher moved itself:
Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\win32\launcher
There, you should see 2 .exe files, one called launcher (with the bacon cup icon) and one called launcher_backup. To uninstall, delete the launcher.exe, and rename the launcher_backup.exe to launcher.exe

That will delete the launcher. Now you might want to delete the settings too, in that case, go to a folder similar to this location (replacing {USERNAME} with your username on your computer:
Code:
C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\
There you should see a folder called StarboundLauncher... This contains the settings and cached images from the server.
Delete the entire folder.

You now have the launcher completely uninstalled.

The next step, which is optional, would be informing me some feedback on the launcher and why you wish to uninstall it. The feedback will help me improve it for other users.


Gives us your feedback! Are you facing problems? Suggestions? What do you want to see done?
