Re: Modding Rules - PLEASE READ (it's short)

Thanks for moving stuff over, boa13. Nice to have things organized. Yes, it looks like for now adapting your mods to Grognaks mod manager is a must. I'm not going to try and stop anything specifically right now as long as there isn't distribution of the entire game's data files. I have a bit of time...

Re: On the topic of Modding

I can't give an official opinion on Overdrive yet. The concept does make us uncomfortable but I'm sure we couldn't stop you even if we wanted to. You guys certainly are passionate about our little game. :) Regardless, I made a new subforum and will start moving posts but I need to run soon. I'm also...

Modding Rules - PLEASE READ (it's short)

Hey guys - Sorry this has been a bit slow but I'm on the road and don't always have computer access. Mods that require redistribution of the game files won't be allowed. This will have to be self regulated I think. I'm not going to manually delete posts but please adopt older mods to work with the &...

Re: On the topic of Modding

I think all that needs to come from the FTL devs is the assertion "Don't redistribute our stuff" and the rest will be figured out by the community. Modding is going to happen either way, and a subforum to collect modding posts together will de-clutter the other areas and help focus the mo...

Re: On the topic of Modding

Out of curiosity, how do you feel about detouring/trampolining? I'm happy to refrain from releasing what I've got so far, but given it just survived the update, and it works, and I can inject whatever I please ... I'm assuming you'd probably prefer we work with your assets rather than corrupting th...

On the topic of Modding

We have been asked a few times about modding support and a subforum. Here is our situation: Unless I'm mistaken, modding currently requires the redistribution of our data files (which include our hard work: ben's music, the art, tom's writing, etc) in order to distribute a mod. Until such a time as ...

Re: Ships Randomly Lose 1HP?

Yo. If a system gets damaged by fire or boarders and it fully breaks it takes 1 damage.

Re: Purchased on steam, how to install on linux

Hey guys. Yes, unfortunately our website is the only location to get the Linux version at this time. HOWEVER, Steam is launching a Linux Beta in a month or two (uncertain) and we will be sure to get on as soon as it's possible.

If you have issues you can email me as well (justin [at] ftlgame.com)
