[GFX] Vanilla Friendly Graphical Tweaks + Extras
Posted: Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:35 pm
Even though FTL is a fantastic game, we occasionally find small graphical quirks that, while not gamebreaking, can be distracting once they have been pointed out.
This .ftl file is meant to patch these small graphical issues--ranging from misplaced pixels, to manning stations blocking doors, to image misalignments, to inconsistencies with other art found in the game--while keeping things as close and as compatible to vanilla as possible.
For a detailed list of what this mod changes, look in the .ftl file's metadata inside of the Slipstream Mod Manager, or at the images shown below:
Moved Manning Stations and Swapped Piloting Images
Modified System Images and Modified Floor Images
Modified Gib Images and Assorted Modifications

Q: You missed something!
A: Great! Let me know either in this post or in a PM!
Q: Will weird things happen if I add this mod in mid-run?
A: Yep. The edited images will change just fine, but the crew will not react to the rotated manning stations, instead typing on the consoles in the original direction that the consoles faced in vanilla.
Q: What if I don't like the rotated manning stations? Having the manning station floating there in the middle of the room looks sort of dumb...
A: One of the main goals with this mod was to change as little as possible about the vanilla gameplay. Moving the manning stations on the two ships that this impacts would change the flow and crew ordering of those ships. If you would still prefer the stations to be not floating, the first mod patch listed in the post below will move the stations to a different tile.
Q: Why did this take you so long to publish?
A: Perfectionism is a cruel mistress. Better late than never, at least?
