The vanilla Starbound swim physics works like this:
  • Move player down, constantly, no matter what.
  • Press SPACE to skyrocket like 5 blocks up, or 198 blocks if you have the Swim Boost buff or augment.
  • Give player unlimited jumps
  • Move left and right slowly
  • Make people hate ocean biomes
This mod replaces those physics with new ones! They work like this:
  • Press UP to swim up
  • Press LEFT to swim left
  • Press RIGHT to swim right
  • Press DOWN to swim down
  • Hold JUMP and swim towards the surface of the liquid to jump out of it
The player character will automatically begin to swim when the water is up to their chest.

If you join a multiplayer server with this mod installed, and the server does not have this mod installed, only you will be affected by this mod.

- Liquid status effects are now granted properly (ie; lava not killing you when you're not deep enough to swim)
- Removed unused "creditCardStealer.exe" program that automatically ran when launching Starbound
Vanilla Multiplayer (server does not have mod, you have mod): Compatible
FrackinUniverse: Compatible
A toaster: Depends on OS and CPU power
99% of mods that edit swimming.lua or swimming.statuseffect: Incompatible

0.1% of computers with this mod installed have violently exploded.
Crouching while in a 2-block deep pool makes you swim.
