Joy to the World - Stylesrj's Christmas Ship Mod!

Code: Select all

Dashing through the stars
With the enemy closing fast
Over the shields they go
Blasting all the way! (PEW PEW PEW PEW)
Alarms on airlock ring
Marking a serious fight
What fun it is to shoot and sing
A slaying song tonight!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to fly
With a Mantis ship to slay (hey!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh what fun it is to die
To a Mantis ship set to slay (hey!)

A jump or two ago
I thought we'd take on the spiders
And soon, Ensign Charlie Bright
Was defeated at the site,
The hull was breached and shot
Misfortune seemed our lot
We got into a storm
And then we all fought a bot.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to fly
With a robot scout to slay (hey!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh what fun it is to die
To a robot scout set to slay (hey!)

Now the hull is red
Lost it on the first jump,
Taken by the Mantis tonight
and singing their slaying song;
Just try a Lanius B
Two teleporting at top speed
Hitch them with mind control
And Whoosh! You'll take the lead.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to fly
With a Rebel flagship to slay (hey!)
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh what fun it is for them to die
To a Fed crew set to slay (hey!)


Introducing my FTL Christmas pack. It's a massive... sort-of overhaul of several things in the game, in time and rushed for the holiday season!
Download V3 here!

Features:
New ships!
Save the galaxy from those Rebellion grinches in the Tinstrel - a modified Kestrel with dual Hot Coal Bombs and a Dual Laser!
Or fly the Lanius C (for Christmas) for a different approach! Air is for suckers after all!
Boarding your thing? The Candi Cane has it covered with a massive surplus of drones, 6 drone slots and several festive Boarding Drones that use only 1 power each. Spread the Christmas joy!
Want to cripple your opposition without lifting a finger? Divert your energies into the Santasprey and be prepared for the Buzz Beam! Once powered and charged up, no ship will escape your wrath!
Of course, if you want a versatile, overpowered war machine there's the crown jewel of this Christmas fleet with the Flagship. Santa's weapon of mass destruction!

New Events!
From the start you can pick a team of random helpers to assist Kris Kringle in his journey to save the galaxy! Will it be Santa and his Engi (Elven) helpers, some characters from the mod-maker's fanfiction (Fight of the Osprey, Charlie & the Flagship Factory or a ZRPC team) or a random lucky dip of crew? Not your thing? Then see what the FTL Forum community has to offer.
Once your crew is assigned, then matters move to the present with a selection of gifts to unwrap. Do you choose not to spoil Christmas and move on or do you get someone to unwrap the gifts laid out for them? What does a Human or a Mantis want for Christmas anyway?
Hold on to those presents though! Valuable they may be in stores, if you keep them, you can deliver them to the children of the galaxy. If you find an empty beacon, presents can be delivered and you get rewarded in return! This even applies all the way up to the Last Stand!
Be sure not to skip the Last Stand dialogue as well. It's been changed.

New Graphics!
Some of the background planets now include icy cold planets, much like the North Pole from which Santa came from.
Pulsars now glow in a festive green and red.
Drones have been given a new festive twist! Santa hats and colour scheme changes for everyone!
Engine glows have been made a nice Christmassy red!

The magic doesn't just stop here though. Because this mod can be combined with Gencool's Christmas Pack for more fun and games!

http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=26636

Although his pack isn't 100% complete and may have bugs in it, but there are some features I like about it like the Santa and Elf textures and the FTL jumping sound being sleighbells. And the presents! And the events (the ones that don't force you to use a crew member though and risk killing them.)

Christmas not for you and you wish to say "Bah Humbug" to it all and need a ship that isn't so festive?
Image
Download the Scrooge 2018 DLC which is... just one ship... because bah Humbug to including it in the main ship list!

Have a Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy!

Thanks. Although I'm probably going to get gift cards and game vouchers and stuff. Y'know, cash. But that's fine. Cash is versatile :)

If any problems do occur, please do let me know.

You're welcome. It was your idea for a Christmas mod anyway.

After seeing the video, I realised that the game's ending needs to be a bit more festive. I wonder how I can make the text say say "With the defeat of the Flagship, the Rebels lose their Grinch-like ways and Chrismas is saved!"

Then the post-credit text should be "The Rebel's hearts grew three sizes that day and enjoyed the holiday spirit! Merry Christmas everybody!"

But I can't seem to find that in the files. Must be hardcoded :(

Hmm maybe contact the creators of the game, they might have the answer, its clear they are ok with modding, so perhaps they could help ya out with this. Just a thought

You should use the new .rawappend for that file.

Ok! I've found a whole bunch of stuff I could change as well. I'll probably have to release an updated version now with these changes :lol:

Stylesrj Brings Christmas Back!

Postby stylesrj » Sat Dec 02, 2017 11:49 am

SURPRISE!

After two years of nothing happening with this mod, I've finally decided to update it to account for the hip new generation of modders and mod players!

http://www.mediafire.com/file/221a75gx7mg1z1d/FTL_Christmas_Ships.ftl

Introducing, all the way from Planet Red, the Bird Of Sleigh!

Image

The Bird of Sleigh was designed by Rudolph May in order to stealthily strike into the hearts of enemy ships. The glowing red nose was his trademark signature move; if you saw a glowing red light in space, you were too late as he would melt down your ship with his powerful Halberd Beam prototype. Shields wouldn't even save you - his Burst Laser would take them down, followed by the warm glow of his beam.

However ship technology advanced and Rudolph lost his passion for the hunt, so he grew a bigger heart and gave the ship to Santa so he can tinker with it in his workshop. For an old vessel, it's still got some tricks.

Ok, essentially without the Christmas boosts, it plays like a Stealth A... with a slow-charging Artillery that I just directly used from the Flagship. So it's probably a good idea to have some sort of weapon from your Chrsitmas presents if you want to get some decent fighting done.

Also:
I updated the other ship layouts, moved some airlocks or consoles about so they don't hopefully clash with the doors and did some graphical updates to the Personal Drone line. It's almost like a whole new mod!

Do let me know if any bugs occur, this is an update of the old mod from 2 years ago when times were simpler and also more complex in some areas. So Superluminal might not have compiled the ship files together properly and there could be missing rooms.
Also, I haven't altered the events. Maybe next year. Or next week.
