Re: [REQ] TurnBased Combat

(In other words, wouldn't be possible as a mod. It'd need the developers to do this, not us modders.)

Re: [MOD] High-res background graphics [V1.0]

Yeah, this is lovely, quite possibly my favourite mod.

Re: [MOD][WIP] Starcraft Total Conversion

Why aren't you using the campaign only Leviathan? The giant zerg mutalisk carrier? I think that makes a lot of sense for a 'mannable' Zerg ship. Wow. That might make sense as the end boss, but as a player ship? It feels too... big :) (Also, I don't think it carries mutalisks. It spits out eggs that...

Re: [TOOL]FTLEdit: FTL Ship editor [v0.88] (Please test!)

I don't think it's a deliberate omission, but it's not hard-coded. I think at the moment, FTLEdit is very useful for setting up the room and door layouts, but anything else is best updated by hand. So to adjust the starting reactor level by hand: * Rename the .ftl file to .zip * Extract it somewhere...

Re: Ships with 4 drone slots and 2 weapons

Oh, yeah, I meant to come and mention this myself. It's almost what you describe, but slightly more subtle: * 3 weapon slots gets a length-3 weapons bar; any other number gets length 4 * 3 drone slots gets a length-3 drones bar; any other number gets length 2 I tried adding versions of the sprites y...

Re: Grognak's Mod Manager v1.4 (Updated Oct 16 2012!)

You should put the contents of the GMM directory into your FTL directory. Once you've extracted it correctly, your FTL directory should contain directories called "mods", "licenses", "resources" and "src" (and possibly "crashlogs"). It should also co...

Re: [MOD][WIP] Starcraft Total Conversion

The only thing I released was a very early no-graphics mod of the Kestrel into a Medivac. I should probably issue a beta release soon though. I'll aim to have that out this weekend, I think. You're right, it is odd for the Zerg ships to have "crew". (Apart from the Overlord, the troop tran...

Re: Any Mods to increase Crew numbers?

Interesting. It's not quite the same though: I bet it doesn't work right for gaining new crew from events or shops. (In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if when you had a crew of 12, if you got an event that makes you lose a crewmember, you then have to dismiss 3 more.) It doesn't allow you to graduall...

Re: [Idea]Fleets!

This should probably be moved to the General discussion. This is a vastly far-reaching idea, certainly not remotely doable with the mod tools we have available; even FTL Overdrive might not support this. It's more suitable for a sequel than a mod.

Re: Suggestion: Tie showing beacon paths into sensor upgrade

I also think sensors are a bit weak, being able to see enemy crew is good and creates some minor tactical opportunities regarding killing said crews. Seeing power usage seems pretty inconsequential to me, I can't really see the point in upgrading sensors past lvl 2. So yeah your idea to tie it to s...
