[SHIP] Banana

Postby corporat » Sat Jun 29, 2013 6:48 am

Hello, I'm new here. The other day, I was inspired to create a "space banana," and finally it's time to introduce myself and my creation to your community.


Why, you ask? I've been following the FTL mod community for a while now, and I've found it lacks something. Potassium. You guys have a serious deficiency. It's a problem.


This is intended to be a challenge ship. That said, I'm up for suggestions. I can move systems around, change crew, change the replaced ship (Engi B), etc. I'd rather not change room layout. PLEASE GIVE IT A NEW NAME! I hate the current in-game name but nothing I come up with is good.

The gibbing is really lazy

Shields need to be yellow and banana shape, also drone reactor only affects on board drones... so its kinda useless.

For theoverlaping systems: You need to regive it a weapons system, because it bugs out without. You can make it like on the Mantis B, or you can even change the upgrade cost for the 1->2 powerbars.

I'd simply call it Banana.

The cloak image needs to be 20 pixels larger than the ship image. Don't resize the image, just add 10 pixels of empty space on each side.

The gibs should show the inside of the banana, as if it was sliced at a 45 degree angle :)

Thank you. Finally someone realised the potassium deficiency in FTL. My wish was for a banana cannon but i guess a banana cruiser beats it.

I was looking forward to playing with this, but I feel it has bugs, or at least issues that bug me. :P
I just quit after a fight almost killed me, although that wasn't completely because of the issues I'm stating; it just happened to be a Zoltan ship with an Anti-ship drone and two Heavy Lasers.

The shield ellipse doesn't cover all of the rooms; free hits for the enemies.
The ship probably needs to move to the left some; it clips into the enemy window while there is still space on the left.

Maybe some day I can go into the files and make these changes myself, but I'll just leave this ship alone right now. :(
