[GRAPHICAL MOD] diversityMod [V0.5]

Postby Ouaz » Sun Sep 25, 2016 5:37 pm

Hi folks,

Three years after, I decided to clean liakad's diversityMod 0.3 (thanks to him for the new weapon icons) to finally make a graphical-only mod (thanks to alextfish and Istarune who started the job).

In the process, I added some new weapon projectiles and icons.

I also fixed the outdated or missing values in blueprints.xml.append. For example, some weapon cooldown or costs were wrong, missing <stunchance> tags for some weapons, etc.

The mod is now fully compatible with AE and doesn't modify any game values. It is intended for those who want to keep FTL in vanilla, but with the more diversified weapon icons.

As the mod seems to be abandonned, or at least discontinued (for a loooong time, as nobody never fixed it entirely), I hope there's nothing wrong with making a new version (and starting a new topic, in order to not bump a 4-years old topic).


This graphical mod replaces redundant weapon icons and projectiles by new ones, which makes easier the visual differentiation between weapons and their respective damage powers in game.


Fell free to give your feedback and see you!

Keep it up with the good work :D
Has anyone ever considered a Warhammer 40,000 Mod for this game? It would be awesome!
