I was wondering if you could make an optional patch kinda like Infinite but for the Corpses mod. It really brings a huge amount of realism to the game and it was compatible with CE for awhile until the Dev went dark. He gave permission for his mod to be used so that isn't a problem. It shouldn't be to hard to integrate it since all the ground work is already in place. Let me know what you think.

I find it a little incoherent that the mod always spawns the same same crew variations and could never take the actual crew appearances into account. It's only a minor incoherency but it still bugs me. But that should not stop you from maybe just making the patch yourself.

Uhhh... I tried again with your advice, and no blue option showed up for having what you said... :cry:

I know that every single one of you have that feeling where you truly believe you'll beat the final boss with your set-up, and you end up dying horribly. :lol:

Alright so I have a current issue with CE Loot Addon for Infinite 1.0e , I able to load all the others and my Java is at 1000 MB so I have max spacing. What the problem is that its not loading after the code

at net.vhati.modmanager.core.ModPatchThread.run(ModPatchThread.java:88)

I'm currently on a Mac 10.6.8 but manage to find a Java that can run SlipStream. So I need a bit of help, what is going on and why isn't it not proceeding, its not frozen but its not uploading the data. I've tried without CE Loot and it works just fine, but why isn't it working? Is there currently something I'm missing?

You need fully upgraded engines as well.

I don't know, maybe you still need more headspace? You can also ask for help in the SMM thread. There is a chance that it just does not work out for you.

Ough. What a nice way of telling "FOff" ;) Seriously though, while I actually suggested this myself some months ago, +1 for incorporating corpses into CE's core, again. After all, you have those "not surviving prisoners" etc, so it shouldn't be too incoherent, that pirates/slavers show some human corpses scattered around. As for all other factions (Mantises, Rebels, Slugs, etc), it's actually *always* coherent with the crew type on board. Unless you think about colours of suit ETC, but I think that when you were just blown up in super-heated fuel explosion and sucked into space, your skin/suit may appear a little "generic"... For someone catching a glimpse of your corpse, for less than 2 seconds before you disintegrate for good.

Of course, it's not big deal, but since much bigger and controversial changes (like alternative crew portraits) are incorporated, so I don't think that corpses would be so much problematic, for anyone. I would incorporate them myself thousands times already, if I had a slightest idea what causes every new version of CE to make modified corpses gibs incompatible.

Anyway, got my first (literally, first ever) crash with CE:

It happened in Lanius sector, while jumping to distress beacon, exactly this one marked below:

As a follow-up of:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12367&p=77929#p77901

... As I didn't wanted to clutter Corpses thread with off-topic:

No, it is not true, at least in the unlikely case that someone asks me ;) I think that CE gives all proper credits where it is applicable + some more. Including everyone that ever did any smallest mod using vanilla FTL resources in the title screen (without any disrespect - I think small mods, sometimes, bring the most brilliant ideas) would just clutter it and make it *very* incomprehensible.

In my humble opinion, the only people that are included in the title screen should be ones that created something totally from scratch (i.e. not based on actual vanilla FTL content) - like it's done with additional music. For all others, there is credits section in OP, credits in SMM mod description, etc...

Otherwise, we're getting dangerously close to Oscars-like "thank the entire f... world", as we should put original FTL authors in every credits too, then authors of all FOSS stuff they used to created FTL, then authors of FOSS stuff that was used to create said FOSS stuff... We would be only around middle of the credits when hitting Linus Torvards and Bill Gates, probably. sorry for a bit of irony, but that "ego-stuff" in corpses thread got me irritated, a little.

If corpses were implemented into CE, in order to make it not have to be added into every ship after an update, I think the only ships that should have this are ships with specific text like the slaver event. Just to make yo feel even worse. ;)

I was thinking maybe you could put the names of everyone who contributed to the Captain's Edition into the actual in game credits somewhere... A lot of mods for other games do things like that. ;)

Here's my personal opinion on that... The title screen will get cluttered if you include everyone's names who ever did anything. It may be debatable what is a "small" or "big" contribution to CE too, so I think everyone can be included on the OP here and in the credits. And that way nobody feels left out.

If you really want to also you could even put at the top of the OP, right under Troubleshooting and the download links, a short thanks to everyone who has contributed to CE, encouragement to check out the credits and those people's individual mods at the end of the OP, and as a bonus an invitation for more people to contribute their ideas to CE. Tell people to PM you if they have something cool and consistent with vanilla that they think could be included in CE, though it may require a liittle additional work on their part to get their "mod" working for CE. If it's a ship mod or event mod for example a little extra xml editing may be necessary. I would really like to encourage more people to contribute stuff to CE :D

And if anyone feels like they haven't been given proper credit, you forgot or something, they shouldn't feel bad about PMing you and requesting to be listed in the credits, within reason of course. And hopefully having nice looong credits will make people appreciate even more how much work has gone into CE. Trolls won't say things were done in 10 minutes. :roll:

Also, you could even mention the reverse, all CE assets are open source and free to use by anybody as long as they give credit to CE.

Better idea would be to have the event crew joiners be named after the people who helped CE instead of the names that are currently used. Like the J-0R4N AI event from collecting all the stuff.

That could be a good idea too, though I imagine kickstarter backers who also play CE will still want to keep their name in the list of crew. ;)

You should name some crew after the most active people on the mod forum and those who helped CE!

Hi
Me and one of my freinds have been having some problems with your mod(CE alone). First of all the mod doesn't seem to be installed unless you luanch the game from the slipstream mod manager, and even then the game seems to predate the advanced edition and there is a couple og missing or or broken textures(the jump map box is stretched out and ships only have rooms).
I was hoping we could get some help, thanks.

I recommend you make sure that you have the current version installed and read through the troubleshooting section in the first post.
