A minimalist starter kit with a tier 0 power armor, a mini low-output reactor, and the accoutrements you need for robot construction. As simple as 'Install and Play', but includes optional loadout customization for those looking to tailor their experience - such as using solar power instead.

Note for new players: This mod is intended for experienced players that are already familiar with the early gameplay and wish to pass through it more quickly. Using TinyStart on your first playthrough will significantly impact your experience and can spoil your first encounters with and unlocking of vanilla technology.

The Basics

This is a minimal "quick start" type mod.

You are provided with a very basic starter armor equipped with dual roboports and all you need to use them, including a low output micro reactor (or solar panels if you prefer). Everything starts equipped and loaded out, ready for immediate use.

Loadout Customization

TinyStart is designed to be "zero configuration" friendly; feel free to just jump in with it right away.

But if you wish for a more tailored experience, this mod offers in-depth customization. Your loadout can be altered by accessing "settings" -> "mod settings" from the main menu. If you join a server with TinyStart, your loadout preferences should be remembered and used*.

*Caution: if you edit these settings while a map has been loaded, the settings will be tied to the map and won't be remembered when you start a new map or join a new game.

Upgrade Your Armor

Tiny Armor starts out with no resistances and no extra inventory. You can improve your armor... but the cost is hefty!
