Custom Ship Hulls?

Postby TheSubsetGamer » Tue Jan 08, 2019 7:58 pm

I use Superluminal to create custom ships, but I still haven't figured out a way to create custom hulls for my ships. Help?
Thanks fellow gamers!

My ships are old and I don't even know if they work anymore, but they all* have custom hulls (art I assume you're talking about) so you can see how the images look and are defined in the files, if you just check my ships out.

*Actually I think the simo-v uses the simo-h hull, so don't check that one out :D

Can you be more specific? How do you make the custom images? Do you use a specific program? Sorry, I'm new at this :D

Just any drawing program. You can even use MSPaint, though The Gimp would probably be better if you know how to use it. "How do I do computer art" is a bit of an advanced topic for these forums, though :) And I'm no good at it. I can rework slightly something someone else did, but I could never draw my own from scratch.

Do you use the same program to rework already existing ships?
Thanks fellow gamers!
