Go Galactic with Starbound's Mass Effect Edition Mod

"I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite mod on the Citadel."

Starbound is massively popular these days, inspiring mods aplenty. Like with many procedurally-generated or sandbox-inspired games lately, it's now rocking a Mass Effect makeover by way of a clever new mod. If you've ever wanted tiny Shepard as a Starbound avatar, things just don't get any better than this.

The Mass Effect Edition mod (via PC Gamer ) for Starbound is available now, though you'll have to check it out in early access beta mode for the present. Create your very own Mass Effect character, and hop aboard the Normandy SR-1 to explore the cockpit, CIC, engine room, and more. The navigation has been altered to reflect the familiar galaxy map as well.

There's a whole shipload of surprises waiting for Mass Effect fans in this mod, including the "Omni-Blade" and even some familiar biotic powers to help lift up your enemies right up into the air. Like the Minecraft mod before it, it's clear a lot of love has gone into creating an authentic Mass Effect experience. If you're a fan of either game, you'll enjoy this clever mixture as well -- right down to the music included.

If you're willing to take the plunge, head over to the developer's website to get started by downloading the mod. Let us know what you think!
