[MOD] The Buffalo

Postby EchoesofOld » Sat Feb 02, 2013 6:27 pm

PLEASE NOTE:
I have discovered that you can NOT load my ships simultaneously. I dont know WHAT causes this, but im looking into it.


This ship is an unarmed vessel that relies on its cloak to survive. Two things worth noting, this is my first ship (So take it easy), and if there's a glaring problem you dont like, the beta's been open for almost a week now, I dont wanna hear it! :lol: (For the record, I'm joking when I say this. If you see a bug, point it out asap!)

CREDITS:
Gratuitous Space Battles for the artwork
Ginger Dragon for discovering the demon airlock

NOTE: The ship is a little wonky on placement, so I'll need to fix that sometime to center it more on screen

Version 1.1 replaces the Engi A, and the soon-to-come Variant B will replace the Engi B.

If you make a YouTube video using this ship, Lemme know so I can watch it and post a link on this thread!

All you have to do to get rid of the engine glow is not use the name "Kestrel" for your images and layout files. For example, for the playthrough I'm gonna be recording right now,I changed all of the "kestrel"s to "Buffalo"s. You'll see the results in an hour or 2.

Sweet deal! I'll modify those files and re-upload the file.

This is either a lie and your just lazy, or you had some HORRIBLE beta testers. The every single "airlock" has a physical connection with other rooms. Telling your pilot to go to the cloak or oxygen room will have him go through the airlock and walk straight to the room. The same thing happens when you tell him to go from cloak or O2 to the engine room and vica-versa. Also, opening up the airlocks doesn't remove the oxygen from the room.

Overall though, the mod is very fun and enjoyable. I just hope you go back on your "I don't want to hear about bugs" statement.

Here's a video demonstrating these glitches in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UrcCn6L ... e=youtu.be

...Yeah, if Oxygen isnt draining, that's a problem that needs fixing. And I'll see if there's enough hull space to insert a dedicated airlock.

And for the record, that ^ is a total joke. (And was also aimed at starting power/system balance.)

I would suggest you properly credit where the art comes from- the game Gratuitous Space Battles.
All ships I have created include custom weapons, graphics etc:

Good call. A LOT of stuff is falling between the cracks with this ship... -__-

Alright, I've FINALLY gotten this ship to work right. I still have no idea how the airlocks slipped through the cracks during TWO WEEKS of playtesting...
