Re: [MODDING] I made a tutorial: create custom events & sect

I'm sorry for not responding sooner, I've been quite busy. You mention that the start_event of the new game sector isn't called, because it fires a different event - do you know which event that is, or if there's a way to override it? Instead of using the sector startEvent, the game launches "S...

Re: [MODDING] I made a tutorial: create custom events & sect

Hmm, I think it's better if you add the weapon drops part in the tutorial, it would make it easier for people to link to this tutorial instead of having to copy it from someone else and put it in theirs. Ok, I guess I could add it as an extra tip of sorts. I intend to keep this tut focused on the t...

Sure, use whatever you wish! It's always better if these basics reach more people.

Amazing work bas! Thanks for making this :) Don't know if it's already being done, but I want to make a mod just for myself with plenty of new events, so there's a fresher variety. I just released my guide on creating custom events and sectors, maybe it can help you: http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/vi...

Re: [Modding] R&D and current findings

Why release mods on a Wiki? That makes no sense. Storing files on Wikis always makes them cluttered. It's not a good way to organize mods. It would be much better to create a modding section on this forum. You're quite right. I never intended for the wiki to be used as a hosting platform, but as a ...
