v 0.7 of the Arsenal+ base mod English Translation and v 0.25 of the DLC ships is rolling out!

this update translates more weapons into English, so that you can know what it is you are using or what's in the store

note that I have changed the download into one file in .7z file format. this requires 7-zip which is free. instructions on this posted on the top/main post

I did this to make the overall download size smaller, which makes it easier to obtain and upload

Perhaps better to divide mod on 2 parts: graphics and texts, like the CE?

yes that sounds like a good idea. since I'm translating, it's mostly just the data folder and translating all of that. splitting it up into two would mean you wouldn't need to download the resource folder unless it gets updated, which will probably only need one last update.

this would seriously cut down the file size. don't have time at the moment to test this.

I know this is a bit early to ask questions about this mod, but is there CE content in here? I'm seeing a lot of their sprites in here but I can't tell what they do because they aren't translated.

I split the main arsenal+ base mod into 2 folders, one the resource pack, the other the data that uses the resource pack. I did this so that you only have to download the resource pack when it updates, and it will only get updates either if bamalf updates the original Russian mod as well as that I need to update the metadata.xml file (lets you know what the mod is in SMM).
I also did this because the Arsenal+ 1.20 English file (not the resource pack) is not even 1 MB so it will be very easy to update.

Seems like it. I noticed this when I went through translating the weapons and found there was both CE and Insurrection material in there. Not sure how they got permission (if they got permission :? ), but since I'm not the one that made the content of the mod, you'll have to ask bamalf.

updated the Arsenal+ 1.20 English Translation mod to version 0.2!

translated the rest of the weapons and drones in blueprints.xml, so everything should be translated there. stuff ranging from scatter weapons to effectors and other ion weapons to beam drones. I believe there's some other stuff too, I just forgot the specifics... :|

also translated some names to add some flavor to your crew.

the download is less than 1 MB so it should be really easy to get it even if your connection sucks.

stay tuned for more!

turns out I actually didn't translate all the weapons (except for boss) in blueprints.xml, so those have all been translated.

also fixed some of the translations for the chain, basic, and burst lasers and other weapons to read better and make more sense.

there's also some weapon called Plazmomet... yeah... I couldn't find a translation for that so I left it that way. you'll notice it's a plasma weapon though so maybe it's just called that :?

that's all for now, so the download link has been updated to version 0.3 :)

(i'll probably follow a kind of 0.1 ... 0.9, 0.10, 0.11 kind of order to give plenty of space unlike what I did last time giving random update numbers (0.2, 0.25) because then what would I do when it got to 0.9 when the mod isn't ready at all, (which it isn't, because there are a ton of events left to translate. I've not even scratched the surface of events. I've made a tiny press in there but that's all...)

stay tuned for more updates!

Плазмомёт is a made-up(though common for sci-fi games) composite word: "plasma" + "throw", so literally Plasma Thrower, but can be left as just Plasma gun.

In case you need help from native Russian with good English level - sign me up :).

I still play FTL, but don't use mods, so more frequently can be found at ftl wikia or reddit.

Just take original names of the same weapons from CE mod :)
