[SHIP] Letze Reise Mercenary Cruiser

Postby Lemmonade » Tue Dec 10, 2013 2:32 am

Update: Bug Fix, Graphics updated. download link has been updated.

Hello, this is my second ftl mod, the Letze Reise. This time around I challenged myself to make a mod that is more fitting with the graphic style of ftl so I used peices from many federation ships. My goal for this ship was to create a vessel that combines elite mercenary equipment with a pirate-criminal theme and crew, this stealth ship is the object of ghost stories. Replaces Stealth B.

The Letze Reise
"The Journey's End"
Image

This aging stealth cruiser was built as a federation prototype deploying early cloaking field technology. Many years ago it was stolen by a notorious mercenary, who named the ship Letze Reise ("Journey's End") because of the impressive amount of hired assassinations it would complete using its stealth abilities. Stories told of the Letze Riese give it an almost ghost-like reputation, namely due to its cloak-and-dagger tactics. It is said that once you notice the menacing silhouette of this craft, its already too late, because you're ship has already been boarded, and your crucial systems targeted.

Its almost ironic however, that this vessel was dubbed Letze Reise. It has seen better days, and it too is approaching the end of it's voyage. As its final mission, the Letze Reise struck a deal with the federation, which is also in a time of desperate struggle. If it will take on this courier mission and run the details of the rebel fleet to the federation capital, the Letze Reise and her crew will be granted pardon for the impressive list of violations they've managed to rack up.

The hull art is amazing....

But the only things bugging me is the wrong sized room images (but I think you are already on that) and also I do dislike non vanilla room sizes and I see no need for 1 big one besides the ability to make that single room drop O2 as soon you open that door at the back. But it is a very cool looking ship... I have a strong urge on making my own layout and variant of it... I think this ship would be great to be in CE. maybe slightly recolored. I can imagen this thing popping out of no where shooting at me.

You need a small image for the hangar picture. Its totally bugged out and HUGE. When selecting the ship from the hangar list. Should be an easy fix. Also is there any chance you could resize the grey outline that goes around the rooms? I believe its the floor image? Its just overlapping over the weapons and stuff like that, a simple resize would fix this. Perhaps just a smaller border for the floor image? Not sure how it works.

There is one huge problem with the otherwise great Letze Reise.
There's no door leading to the second and third most crucial systems, Weapons and Engines. if either of them get damaged they stay that way, and no crew can man them to increase their superiority.
Can anyone give me a door code to put in the txt, like
DOOR
#

to fix this problem? i've tried for hours and i finally got the door the right say but it won't let people through, like it either isnt there or the game thinks it leads to empty space.

Thanks a ton. I love the idea of the Reise, but it's really hard to play without that little door :C
If Captain's Edition had a system repair bomb then it would be okay, but it doesnt.

A speedy drug smuggling cargo ship called The Peregrine. Some say it can make an 8 sector run in under 12 parsecs.
