I think I'll play this ship tomorrow. I was going to play the banana ship. :P

I'm taking a quick look at things tonight before I get around to playing it. I was mainly curious as to what advanced tags from SMM this ship would need. I see it's just the music. 8-)

One thing I noticed was the cloak image. The base is 736 x 488, meaning the cloak should be 756 x 508, but the cloak is 758 x 506. It seems some numbers got swapped. :lol: I suppose it doesn't make that big of a difference by being off by 2 pixels.

:shock:
It's been like that forever, honestly. Keep in mind, this ship was built pretty much at the dawn of time (FTL modding-wise), so the 10px rule about cloaking wasn't common knowledge - I lined it up best as I could visually through trial & error. Even so, I'll make sure it's the first thing fixed on the list when there's a 1.3.1 to be released. I still intend to rework the other room sprites at some point, and adding a second Obsidian ship and more weapons isn't out of the question either...

I finished my run with the ship. It had a rough start, due to poor evasion and lack of power for both weapons and shields. I got beat up in the first fight against a Zoltan ship with drones. Then my next fight was against another Zoltan ship. It was rough with my slow weapons. :x I pulled through and steamrolled the end, eventually maxing every system before the flagship. I even resisted the urge to sell the obsidian weapons for some quicker ones.

Music seems fine. It wasn't until some of my fights were almost over that I noticed it was different. It really blends in well for someone who isn't paying attention to the music.

Bug report: When I clicked Validate with SMM, it noticed <gib1> had a </gib2> tag. I didn't die, so I don't know what would happen when the ship blows up.

Edit: I forgot, the Drone System only came with one power. It wasn't a problem for me in this run, but I know some people prefer that it comes with two power so that it can use defense drones right away.

Edit: Steam moved their screenshots from steampowered to steamusercontent. I don't know when this happened, but I noticed it on March 7, 2015. I had to go through most of my posts where I knew I used Steam screenshots. I hope I didn't miss any.

FTL ignores the name of the closing tags, so it has no effect whatsoever.
That said, it's still malformed XML, though it's a pretty common mistake in the vanilla files...

It worked so I never gave it a thought, but now that it's been pointed out, the tag has been fixed. As has drone power (will start with 2 now) and the cloak size.
It amazes me that even after all this time there's still things that need fixing or tweaking.
On that note, I might need to revise a "CE" version of this that speeds up the weapons a little. Balanced against vanilla they work just fine, but CE ups the ante a little with so much alternative firepower - makes playing the Obsidian tougher than I had intended. Thoughts?

Thank's Kieve for making such an amazing ship.

Quite welcome. :) I'm glad you enjoyed it, although the Retribution doesn't seem to get as much love as it used to. Too many quality ship mods out there these days, I guess. :lol:

The Obsidian Cruiser is still a damn good ship mod, and is pretty much one of the best out there.

Are there any plans to update this for AE?
