That edit of the Viper looks really good, R4V3! DryEagle's ship mods were one of the things that first got me into modding too--when I first started out I thought those were some really cool ships, but as I became more familiar with FTL's resources and gibs, I realized where some of his ship hulls came from, heh. That's also a very nice Venom Cannon, quite fearsome looking.
Out of curiosity....will I be in the mod?
(If I'm not, no big deal)
Mhm, Personally for me the ship that got me into modding was um... I think it was a "Pyro Kestrel" cruiser, The "pyro", the "Obsidian cruiser", the "Archon", and a few other ships... as well as some later on like the Rock Sun Fury.
However personally I think the one that really got me into modding was FTL: Foundation of the Federation. Mods like that are what I really like. I did get WhaleCancers permission to work on that mod and once I got time available to myself I will start cracking into it and later on do my Engi Brigade mod. Sadly it's not quite a 1 person job, and my event modding is rather poor and I do not have nearly no time to test what so ever... so testers and people to check for mistakes would vastly improve my modding speed.
But anyway, moving on... Dry Eagle form what I feel is a key figure in early FTL modding, all the youtubers had his mods on their channel, all of them... as well as his mods being one of the only mods being well, having lots of people wanting to update to AE.
He was the phenomena before Captains Edition I guess. But anyway I wanted the Venom canon to be a mix of the heavy laser (my favorite laser in FTL and which I find personally a lil scary looking.) and the phase ions (giving a sharp look to them that instils a lil bit of fear). I wanted the venom cannon to be something scary and cool looking, Despite the fact this art was originally meant to be the Venom mk I, it was a little bit over done and too big/ scary looking, it'll be the mk II and I need to find ways to make a mk I work xD
Also, I will not disclose who will be in my mod or not until I reveal the ship and/or event they'll be involve in...
however to make it as easy to do and produce the most fitting mod for the job I do suggest to list down your favorite faction and most relatable in FTL... and any other words such as interactions with a civilian/ friendly vessel or not
-innocent whistling that isn't hinting at anything-

Otherwise I can't wait to give it a try.
Perhaps give some green glow on the 'enemy' venom cannon, I made it white-ish as it was primarily an ion weapon and my earlier attempts and a green glow didn't quite work out well, but a second dry never hurts!
I must play this glorious thing!! Could you possibly release it as just a vanilla player ship?
I do indeed plan on having this as a player ship with 3 layouts as well... here's the other 2 (note: the recolors are not done... however I am lost on what to do for the type B... since this isn't a vanilla ship and no vanilla paint job matches it...)
Shite, time to start pumping the mods out as quick as I can.
Oh, have you also heard of my new youtube channel?
No, I have not heard of your new youtube channel, is it better than y our old youtube channel?
