But the zip file gets renamed right into an .ftl anyway, so dies it matter if it's a zip or .7z?

The contents of the file and the name of the file are completely different things!

If I write a text file describing my cat, saved as mycat.txt, and then rename mycat.txt to mycat.jpg, do you think I'll be able to open it as a JPEG and see a photo of my cat? Or if I take a photo of my cat, saved as cat2.jpg, and then rename it to cat2.txt, do you think I'll be able to open it as a text file and read a description of how warm and fluffy my cat is? No, of course not.

Similarly, 7z and ZIP are completely different archive formats. The contents of the archive will be different.

You need to create the archive of your data and img folders as a ZIP archive, not as a 7z archive.

Once you've created the ZIP archive, then you rename it to .ftl. It's still a ZIP archive, and not a 7z archive, it just has a different name.

Or maybe I'm doing it wrong by zipping the data and img folders into a zip and then renaming it an .ftl
No, that sounds correct. That's what you should be doing.

I appreciate all the help guys, I've now got two ships completed for myself. My issue turned out to be that i was unzipping and editing and re-zipping everything unnecessarily. It was a lot of work and I ended up screwing myself my zipping it into a .7z every time, which modman.exe did not like at all. I've just been opening the archives in with 7z when i need to end editing everything from within and letting 7z update automatically when i save and exit each file. It's worked like a dream so far.

This Mod works great, but one thing i did notice was the absence of the option to add an artillery beam system to a modified ship. Otherwise i have no problems with is and i can make ships with ease.

Isn't that because we don't quite know yet how to get that to work on other ships than the one it was designed for?

I can't load ships that I save. Afaik, I'm doing it right, but it gives me this error, and then nothing happens:

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

It also says "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."


Also, 9 times out of 10, when trying to move the background image, the program crashes. Sometimes it crashes as soon as I click the button.

You don't have the problem with a ship having its background and rooms displaced with respect to each other in some cases? Say, open the Kestrel and delete its upper (left side of the ship) airlock, save and use it. For me it shifts all rooms one space with respect to the ship graphic, and there's no way to fix it.

Amen bro. I had that issue with my Buffalo Cruiser (Shameless post advertising for the win!!! Haha, but seriously...) and have decided that I probably COULD figure out the tweaks in FTLEdit, but I dont yet know if it's worth the trouble
The Rebel Flagship: The only ship to make the DemonStar look like a pansy.

Be ye wary of the ship with the demon airlock...

Activation of C:\Users\My Name\Downloads\FTLShipEdit\FTLShipEdit.application resulted in exception. Following failure messages were detected:
+ Application manifest has either a different computed hash than the one specified or no hash specified at all.
+ File, FTLShipEdit.exe.manifest, has a different computed hash than specified in manifest.

Got this a reason for error when opening it, any help?

Uh, not sure, make sure you're opening the .exe instead of the .application, if that doesnt work, try redownloading
Love FTL? Wish you could fly around in the USS Enterprise, the Tardis, or a ship that looks just like your own face? Check out FTLEdit, a ship editor for FTL, so you can create your own custom ships and play them!
Don't forget to share them too! :)

I was working on my first ship mod and two issues are happening:
1) Ship graphic is not lining up with the floor.
2) Rooms shift/disappear on me from when I export till when I load the ship again.
Any ideas how to fix this?
