It's pretty self-explanatory. I just jumped right in and got to work (though that may have not been the smartest thing to do xD). The only reason I haven't pumped out a dozen cruisers is that I do custom art for each of my cruisers and that takes a day or two. The thing that helps are the tips (really cool of you to add), and the layman's terms that are in there. Glows weren't explained at all, so I assumed it was just a generic room lighting. That could be solved with just a new "tip".

Are you planning on making another version for FTL: Advanced Edition? (It releases tomorrow, I'm so excited!)
Yup, I am working on a new version of the editor specifically for AE -- however, seeing as I'm rewriting the editor from scratch, am busy with college, and will have to figure out all the new AE stuff, the update may get pushed back a bit.
But I guess there's enough new content for people to make it through a month or two without needing mods
Yeah, of course. Take your time. I think I speak for the whole community when I say that I'd prefer to have a great tool in like, 6 months than an alright tool in three weeks. In case I've forgotten to say it, thanks for all the work you've put in for us. If I could, I'd donate some coin for ya'. xD
While I have the opportunity to talk to the dev of this software, may I ask:
How many ships did you yourself make in Superluminal?
How often do/did you use your own software to make cruisers?
One little suggestion, though? Please add in a way to zoom! Because we're dealing with pixel art ships, and having to align things, I've found myself trying to "ctrl-plus" all the time, to no avail. I work at a ~1600% zoom in Gimp for making the art, and when I transition to Superluminal, I keep wondering "Huh, why can't I- oh, yeah, whoops. xD"
