Re: I just had an interesting idea...

:!: This could be a neat total conversion. The mission could just be to resist the Rebel onslaught, or something more subtle, like having the secret data on board and maybe gather enough scrap/things to get a ship ready to bring to the Fed base, kind of a FTL prequel... By heavily modifying the Reb...

Re: [Help] Need Help With a Custom Weapon

Your problem is that you used winrar :) It made the file a rar file. I don't use the gui versions of any of these programs so don't know, but you'll want to find a way to make zip files instead of rar files, either within winrar (I know it can unpack zips, but don't know if it'll make them) or winz...

Re: [Help] Need Help With a Custom Weapon

The havoc laser has data files with extension .xml - it should have .xml.append The modified CEPS has blueprints.xml, should be blueprints.xml.append. All other files have ~ at the end -- those are temporary files that are sometimes present in CE's release. Just remove the ~ from the name and it sh...

Perhaps that's the source of the problem? What are you using to package them?


I am using WinRar to pack them, and then rename the file extension to ".ftl".

Re: [MOD] Captured Concordiat Engineering Vessel

I see. Well, I'm a extremely detailed sort of writer/GM; a world builder. Anyways, I'm on the verge of collapse; some previews of what I've been making from my mod: http://i.imgur.com/AgKbbTE.png http://i.imgur.com/i7ggzWb.png http://i.imgur.com/9BAusse.png I'm rather pleased with my audio choices ...

Re: [Help] Need Help With a Custom Weapon

Huh. That's odd. But SMM rarely is mistaken. It'll be a lot simpler if you just upload your .ftl file so we can figure out what's wrong -- you don't have to worry about it containing stuff from other mods, IIRC technically every mod is part of public domain by default. Especially given the fact tha...

Re: [Help] Need Help With a Custom Weapon

"This mod doesn't append. It clobbers." -SMM I have no idea what this means. That means your file names are of type *.xml, not *.xml.append Which means that SMM will completely replace the file in FTL with this mod's files and not just append them. This is fine if that's what it mod needs...

Re: [Help] Need Help With a Custom Weapon

The XML looks correct... Are you certain your mod is being installed as last? If it is, and it's still not having any effect, it's probably wrong directory structure/filenames in the .ftl file itself. Run it through SMM's validate function. "This mod doesn't append. It clobbers." -SMM I h...
