[Ship] New Year's Tug

Postby Jimli_ » Sun Dec 31, 2017 9:01 pm

So this was supposed to be the type B for my Christmas Tug, but this ended way more polished and balanced than that one, soooo... this is the main ship now :D . Features a unique firework artillery, as well as a special mind control system (aesthetically, nothing gameplay wise about the mind control is changed). I've beaten the game twice with it, once on easy and once on normal. I would recommend not using easy mode, as it makes just a little too easy. The difficulty curve is a little sharp from easy to normal though, so you might have trouble getting the ball rolling. Once you upgrade your shields though it should be a bit smoother.

Download (version 1.1)

Due to a mistake on my part, the drones and backup battery systems cannot be purchased. I'll fix this in a later version, but I've already spent too much time on the mod and want to relax on New Year's Eve.

Not at all. You just have the figure the appropriate folder that system images are stored in (in this case "icons"), then create images with the same name that the images for mind control are given.

It works with the same principle that the low O2 symbol for 1 tile rooms does. If you're having trouble finding out what a folder should be called to change a specific image, superluminal has the entire database listed.

Just saying Jimli; your custom interior images (piloting, shields, engines, and weapons) are missing their glows.

It's not a big deal; moreover it's just a pet peeve.

(And 2/3 of your ships in your signature redirect to a Subsetgames 404 page, just replace the old links)

Yeah, I'm not really sure how to fix the glow issue or what I did wrong. The images for the glows are in the proper folder, but it seems to be some sort of problem with superluminal. I'll fix it eventually, probably just need to edit a line in one of the .xml files or something.

Just add the prefix "room_" to the custom interior images. (room_engines_blarg)

You'll also need to change certain strings in the blueprints. (img="X" --> img="room_X")

<engines power="3" room="11" start="true" img="engines">
<pilot power="1" room="0" start="true" img="pilot3">
<shields power="2" room="9" start="true" img="shields">
<weapons power="1" room="8" start="true" img="weapons">

Updated the mod so now the rooms have console glows.
