Re: [MOD][WIP] Starcraft Total Conversion

That's true, but there are some pretty good-looking fanmade models, particularly in the SC2BW mod. (E.g. this Devourer , this Queen and this Arbiter would be good enough for me). I've downloaded the assets from that mod, but I've not been able to get them into my SC2 Map Editor. I'll have another go...

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

Yeah, it's always done that for me. It's fine though: just set up a shortcut somewhere to the version of FTL you keep for modding (since it's DRM-free you can have one install for playing and a separate one for modding) and just say "No" when GMM asks you if you want to launch FTL. It's fa...

No, sadly, I'm pretty sure GroxGlitch's idea of Auxiliary Engines isn't possible to do with the modding tools available to us.

Re: [MOD] diversityMod [V0.3]

I also wanted to have the lovely new graphics of this mod without the balance changes. Knowing a little about the xml mod structure, I decided to just edit the mod to do that. So behold: the diversityMod, restricted only to the cosmetic changes (lovely new graphics): https://www.dropbox.com/s/l5utdw...

Re: [SHIP] Ebon Hawk

You can easily obtain the .xml file from the .ftl file:

* Rename the .ftl file to end with .zip
* Unzip the zip archive
* Rename the "blueprints.xml.append" file (in the data directory) so it ends with .xml
* Tada! You can open it with Ship Editor.

Re: Spriting Help?

You should probably say precisely what you're doing. What custom images have you created, precisely? Where are you putting them (somewhere under resources.dat/img, presumably)? What filenames are you giving them, and where are you referencing those filenames from your blueprint definitions? And when...

Re: [MODDING] Ship: Duality Cruiser & Merchant Cruiser

You should check out my Starcraft mod thread . The Medivac already starts with a 4-space teleporter plus Healing Burst, but the Terran units are only marines, marauders and SCVs (humans, Rock and Engi). The Zerg troop transport will be the Overlord/Overseer, and it won't have any shields either (lik...

Ships with 4 drone slots and 2 weapons

Hi all. I'm having problems with a couple of my custom ships. I want the ship to start off with 4 drones and be able to power them all at once. I'm able to get it all playing correctly as desired, but it has a nasty graphical glitch that I can't find any way to fix. The problem is that the "Wea...

Un-crewable rooms

Hi all. Does anyone know: Why are some rooms on custom ships uncrewable? Even if you have a crewmember in the room, they'll just stand there not doing anything, and the white "crewed" silhouette won't light up. I'm getting this behaviour what looks like pretty randomly with my custom ships...

Re: [MOD][WIP] Starcraft Total Conversion

Why are you putting both ships in the minimage? This will screw up the high score screen and the like. Edit: Also why the white background? Why no pink glow? The glow is easy to replicate in photoshop. The miniship images are a pull between two factors. On the one hand there's the high score screen...
