Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Would it be possible to add two different themes in for the Last Stand sector? One as combat and one as exploration as well? It seems redundant, but I've recently just finished a mod that replaces the Last Stand's music with a combat theme of the Federation track. Which was made by a friend of mine,...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Resources can be put into am .ftl file. Look at how other mods do it for examples. I recommend Captain's Edition I know they can, I'm just wondering if I can use stuff from resources and .xml.append files in the same .ftl file, because one depends on the other for what I'm doing. EDIT:: Figured out...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

So let's say your change is in blueprints.xml. Put whatever your change is -- JUST your change, not all of blueprints.xml's code--into a file called blueprints.xml.append. The file should still be in XML format, but with an extra APPEND suffix at the end of the file name. Once that's done, you make...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

So, question from a novice modder here:

How exactly do I take a change/addition that I've made and make it into a mod without having to re-release the entire data/resource.dats that I've made changes to?

Apologies if it could be worded better, but I'm an idiot, you see.

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Okay so I've been having a problem with Superluminal not saving correctly or something. My ship has a weapon mount or two that's placed a bit strange as well as an accidental door placement (dunno how it happened), so I go in and fix it, save it. And when I open it back up in SL2, it doesn't have my...

Re: Previews from the impatient

http://i.imgur.com/mZLmAwX.png Meet The Estraniis. (First mod in pogress!) She's big, mean, and lemon scented. I need to do shading a bit harder next time as it's barely noticeable in game. Honestly I really wanted to play around with the idea of hybrid ships as joint efforts between the species of...

Re: Am I the Only Person that Loves the Fregatidae?

Basically its problem is that it's a very slow boarding ship compared to something like Slug B, Rock A/Rock B if they're turned into boarding ships, or Mantis C, let alone the conventional and more powerful boarding ships. You have no particularly good answer to ships that have both a medbay and go...

Re: Am I the Only Person that Loves the Fregatidae?

I think it gets so much hate because what the hell is a Flak Gun doing on a boarding cruiser? Sure it's meant to show off that artillery systems can be different, but the Flak is just so out of place for me... The ship gets a little bit better though if you find another non-Zoltan crew. Then you ca...

Am I the Only Person that Loves the Fregatidae?

Most places I look I see users consistently bashing the Fregatidae for being one of the worst ships in the game. I don't know if that's because they don't know how to play the damn thing or what, but it should be pretty obvious! Sure it doesn't start out with any weapons, but it does start out with ...

Re: FTL - The Rise of the Empire - A FTL Tabletop-esque RPG

Okay so, first off I'm damn interesting in this. Secondly, is this thing still open to taking on new people? Just for the record, I'm only new to the forums, not RP in general. Yeah were still open, we havent even begun and were still open, new players will be rarely added after it begins so i sugg...
