How do you delete a character in starbound?

Just got Starbound, and I made a typo in my first character’s name. My OCD has kicked in, and I want to delete him. I see no delete button anywhere, and hovering + pressing delete over my characters do not work.

Advice please :)?


This post is really old and not relevant anymore due to the implementation of the character delete button in later versions!


Go to Steam\SteamApps\common\Starbound\player. There you find your character and world files. At a first glance, there is no way to tell which one is which though, since it uses some sort of hasing to create filenames. So you should look at the file creation date and also make a backup before deleting it.

Alternativly, you can open the file with notepad and have a peek inside. Your name is there on the top after the “ACK” Symbol:

My character name is Gordon, so I know this is the right file.
