Mod Manager - Merging Specifications

This is an open request for review by anyone interested (other developers and mod creators, specifically) on the working specifications I've formulated for implementing a "mod merging" functionality. Overview What I hope to achieve is a method for allowing mutiple mods to safely interact a...

Re: Grognak's Mod Manager (v1.3)

Certainly a good idea. :) Go ahead and submit an issue at Github (it makes it easy to keep track of.) Done! If you wouldn't mind, I'm about to post a new topic with the specifications of how I've implemented a "*.merge.xml" format (via additional tag attributes to be added by mod authors)...

Re: [Question]Is there a way to implement new sounds?

It would appear that you could add custom sounds to custom weapons, though I've done a grand total of no testing whatsoever to verify this. I don't see any events that create a sound, so I wouldn't expect you to be able to do that.

Re: [WIP] Tablet Port

Well, right clicking is done by double tapping, and you CAN hover, but it requires you to slowly drag your mouse over the button. Keyboard input is done by the iPad's keyboard, so you can't really use it at the same time as playing the game. Ah. That doesn't seem like it would work well with FTL, t...

Re: [WIP] Tablet Port

might make sense to use the C# FTL-overdrive engine as a base (since it's still in its infancy), so there aren't 2 codebases to do the same thing In addition to what nilwolf already said, I'd also add that each of those projects seems to be aiming for very different goals - Overdrive appears to pri...

Re: [WIP] Tablet Port

We have no intentions of asking for payment whatsoever. We're doing this just for the fun of writing the code and playing the game on our tablets. No, we're not doing it so everybody else can play the game on their tablets. We're doing this so that me and my friend can play on OUR tablets. We're no...

Re: Grognak's Mod Manager (v1.3)

I'd like to make a feature request: Ability to name files [filename].append.xml as well as/instead of [filename].xml.append Two reasons: 1) Syntax highlighting (.xml tells files it's an xml file, .append tells it nothing, requiring manual setting of language) 2) The alternate mod manager with mergin...

Re: Prevent AI from shooting uselessly

1.) Firing in volleys 2.) Targeting specific systems If the AI did this, it would put difficulty through the roof in my opinion. These 2 things would bridge the greater part of the gap between what we have now and what it would be like to face off against human opponents in 1-on-1 ship battles. Esp...

It can be done, just not as easily as with other ships. (I did twice after seeing people on the forums say that it was too hard, lol)

Would you be able to repair it if it ever broke, though? This seems like it'd have the same issue as having a medbay unconnected to any other rooms.
