Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Thanks a bunch! I took the event out of the event list which I had created, moved the ship to event_ship and added the <event/> and it works!!!

And yes, I used the 'disable fleet' mod and searched every planet in a mantis sector :L

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

I'm trying to make a custom event involving fighting a custom Mantis ship, then gaining a custom weapon. I've spent a while fiddling around but I can't get it working. In 'events_mantis.xml.append' i've got: <eventList name="MANTIS_BOSS"> <event load="MANTIS_BOSS_CHOICE"/> </even...

Re: Pride

Ah yeh, you need to scale the hull pic down for the miniship. I use GIMP and tend to go down to about 190x120 pixels.

Re: Pride

Bwahaha, nice but it's a bit of a mess :D Obviously you're having fun messing with FTL, so don't let my constructive criticism put you off! 1.Hangar miniship is messed up. 2.You scaled the hull image up so it looks poor quality 3.Weapon slot 4 is misplaced, weapons float in the air :L 4. Your embedd...

Re: (MOD) Sleepz's Weapons

Thanks, it's good to know you like it :D I was definitely thinking about doing some more ship-styled weapons, so i'll take your thoughts on board! Only problem is that modding seems to be pretty limited, so i'm not sure if health drain over time or weapons which bypass zoltan shields are possible......

Re: (MOD) Sleepz's Weapons

Hey guys and gals, I need some help if anyone's able to. I would like to make the mantis cannon only available through a custom event, which only happens in mantis sectors and involves fighting a powerful mantis ship. Any pointers would be great, I've had a poke around the data files and google but ...

Re: (Beta) Valor's Revenge

If you open a .ftl file with 7-zip (or other) you should see that it has the 'data' and 'img' folders inside. FTL is picky when it comes to how the files are compressed so the best option (and what i do) Is: 1. Open your old .ftl file with 7zip. 2. Copy files FROM data (Dlcblueprints.xml.apped etc),...

Re: (Beta) Valor's Revenge

Fun ship, nice work!! The Pds guns are so OP :D and the cloaking pic instead of a shield is a neat idea. Creative criticism: 1. Add a pic to your post, everone loves them! 2. Make a miniship (for the hangar) 3. Change PDS weapon descriptions, currently they say "YOU SHOULDN'T SEE THIS" 4. ...
