[Ship] (WIP) SR-71 Blackbird

Postby Ferox9 » Thu Jun 06, 2013 6:18 pm

Hey there guys! This is my first ever mod (for any game, ever) and I just finalized it today! It's an SR-71 Blackbird!

I started work on this a long time ago (and by that I mean I drew up the base of the ship and that's it), but thanks to Vanguard of Valor's excellent mod tutorial video (which can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A31U0CtvU0w), I finally got around to making this mod.

It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it near finished.

First thing I need to do is to draw up a new ship image, one that more closely matches FTL's style (which mine glaringly does not).

I also need to do something about the shield image, I originally planned to have the shields look like they just covered the ship, like this: http://i.imgur.com/BH1zzMA.png but that plan was halted once I saw that the shield layer goes under the ship layer. So I resorted to using a standard shield image, unfortunately.

The premise of this ship is this: The Federation has recently stumbled upon ancient USAF blueprints from a time when humans solely lived on Earth. With these blueprints Federation scientists have recreated the SR-71 Blackbird. It has been fitted with what some might say are the most powerful engines the galaxy has ever seen, as well as an incredibly tough titanium shell. The ship needs its engines and casing because it doesn't have the power necessary to run a shield system. To help counter this large hole in its defenses, The Federation also outfitted the ship with a cloaking system. Can you handle what just might be the fastest ship in the galaxy?

Here's an imgur album of a few screenshots I took of it in game: http://imgur.com/a/FBUAc

And here's the dropbox link to download this if you'd like: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4j4dmxsqootzt ... ckbird.ftl

This replaces the Stealth A.

If you try this out, please let me know of any glaring issues that I missed.

(PS, the engine room is 3x2, so the low O2 image doesn't quite work correctly. The top 4 squares have the no oxygen lines, yet the bottom 2 stay just pink. But there is no oxygen there even if it looks like there might be some)

Check out my "Low O2 Icons" mod. On the 2nd page of the forum post someone put up an image that I think is better than mine.

Feel free to use mine in your mod, as in incorporate them right into it. Also, feel free to suggest it in your post.
