Re: Grognak's Mod Manager v1.7 (Updated March 6, 2013!)

I need some help - is there any way to check the version of Python on my system? I'm in a bit of a pickle. I have an older version of Python, 2.6.5 (I think,) on my system, because I'm running a tabletop game of the Star Wars RPG via Traipse - which needs 2.6.5 (which is what I installed - again, I ...

Re: Hull Breach, What does it cause?

Depending on where they happen, Hull Breaches are a minor nusiance, actively helpful, or they can kill you. If, for instance, they happen on the bridge , they can kill you, because generally your first (and smart) reaction to a hull breach is to remove any crew who happen to be in there. But if you ...

F you bulwark. F you. Ion weapons make tha...

And if I was planning to share my contact sheet of ship greeble, that's what I'd do. :P

If you'd like a copy to host yourself, I'll make it a PNG and send it your way.

Re: Create-a-Cruiser ship sprite sheets (minor spoilers)

It's cool, teleported drones fix the hull breaches I assume. How did you get the in-room sprites? Did you get them from the game assets? Well, no... If you get a hull breach in one of them, it stays breached until you get to drydock and fix it, IE, never. But then, a hull breach in one of those roo...

Re: Enemy ship flees with my mantises on board

Not at all, there's no reason they have to be in the cockpit. I was suggesting that anytime an enemy FTL's with some of your crew on board, there be a screen where you can try to finish off the crew without support from your ship. And as far as I've noticed that's how it already works for the playe...

The Bulwark Deceiver! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v323/ShadowDragon8685/BulwarkDeciever.png What do you get when you cram a fighter-tight cluster of working bays in the heart of a cruiser hull, all centrally radiating out from a four-person medbay, then add a super...

Re: Create-a-Cruiser ship sprite sheets (minor spoilers)

Oh, wow, heh.

Noted. You'd need to either custom-sprite rooms you intended to be larger, or only use some kind of an empty large central room as a hallway/fuck you to beam weapons.

Re: Create-a-Cruiser ship sprite sheets (minor spoilers)

So, I've started making a shipbuilder, but as far as I can tell, the game only supports square rooms? And there's a load of nonsquare ones in the imageset here, so I got confused :P Sadly, yes. The game only supports 1x2, 2x1, and 2x2 rooms. These were the fanciful creation of an artist who knows t...
