[SHIP][CE AND AE] The Rebel Cruiser! [UPDATED]

Postby LuigiGames » Mon Jun 16, 2014 11:14 pm

Hey Guys! I'm new to the FTL forum and found some really cool mods all these times. After a while, I got an FTL ship editing software and decided to create my own mods. I looked at basic mods of new ships and it hit me. FTL lacks a real, official Rebel Cruiser, right? Only the Kestrel Cruiser type B would be a rebel ship, but it's not a Rebel Cruiser, it's still the Kestrel. Many mods with Rebel ships may have been made like this, but this is it! I present to you...

THE REBEL CRUISER!

Before I continue, I'll put the credits here now so I don't anger anyone:
Hull design NOT BY ME, all credit goes to the contributors of Captain's Edition.
Room layout by me.
Type B color change by me, hull shape by CE contributors (as stated above).
Cloak images made by me.
Made using Superluminal ship editor.

There is both a Type A and B version of this ship, as well as CE versions. THIS REPLACES THE STEALTH CRUISER.
Type A Hull: (this ship is an enemy in Captain's Edition, credit goes to the modders of CE)
Image
Type A cloak: (cloaking images by me)
Image
Type B hull:

Type B cloak:

Weapons: the weapons of this ship varies depending on if it's the vanilla FTL version or Captain's Edition version of the ship.
Type A vanilla: Burst Laser III
Type A CE: Laser Charger, Phase Ion II
Type B vanilla: Chain Vulcan
Type B CE: 2 Auto Lasers

Starting Systems: (they will be listed with the starting level after the name)
Type A: Shields 2, Engines 1, Weapons 4,Oxygen 1, Medbay 1, Artillery 1. ( put artillery because if the FEDERATION cruiser can have it, why not the REBEL one? plus, you can be shot by a fleet artillery anyway.
Type B: Shields 2, Engines 1, Weapons 4, Oxygen 1, Medbay 2, Artillery 1, Cloaking 1.

How it's balanced:
Type A: Vanilla or CE, it begins with a powerful weapons array. But that means you may not be able to power other strong weapons in the future, and you have only 2 extra system slots.The artillery also helps, but you'll need to upgrade that first to make it actually effective. You can only upgrade to 25 reactor bars total, so that saps some power too.
Type B: In vanilla, the Chain Vulcan is very useful but slow to power up. Not only that, but it also uses a lot of power and could take a while to make it fast shooting. In CE, the auto lasers cannot penetrate strong shields. Either way, The cloaking system proves to be useful, BUT that means you only have 1 extra system slot left- You MUST choose very wisely, depending on the situation.

Augmentations:
Type A vanilla: repair arm
Type A CE: Anti-Ship battery/ASB (it's a Rebel fleet elite forward unit. there's a good reason for including that.)
Type B vanilla: Stealth Weapons
Type B CE: Subspace scanner

Weapons slots: 4
Drone slots: 2

Room layout: I'll let you find out...


DOWNLOADS:
Type A vanilla, replaces Stealth cruiser A: http://www.mediafire.com/download/cw4wf ... iser+A.ftl
Type B vanilla, replaces Stealth cruiser B: http://www.mediafire.com/download/fiy0c ... iser+B.ftl
Type A Captain's Edition: http://www.mediafire.com/download/z65fx ... r+A+CE.ftl
Type B Captain's Edition: http://www.mediafire.com/download/g281k ... r+B+CE.ftl


I hope you enjoy my first ship! ;)

And just to let you know one more time: Hull image not by me, all credit goes to Captain's Edition modders.

Changelog:

Code: Select all

1.0: Rebel Cruiser released, type A and B
1.1: CE versions updated
-fixed weapon mount for artillery
-fixed room textures



Note: The gibs are a little strange on the type A and the type B has no gibs. so, don't expect much from when you die.

A type C is coming soon, so stay posted.

Only CE versions were updated. for vanilla people, sorry for the inconvenience.

actually, i did notice that bug before i posted it here. i'm afraid i cannot fix it, but it would look like the fleet artillery is helping you fight. it's a ship that progresses with the rebel fleet, but it was intercepted by the federation fleet.

Actually this can be fixed by giving the ship an artillery mount in Rebel Cruiser.xml:

<weaponMounts>
<mount x="388" y="134" rotate="true" mirror="true" gib="-1" slide="up" />
<mount x="390" y="250" rotate="true" mirror="false" gib="-1" slide="down" />
<mount x="460" y="66" rotate="true" mirror="true" gib="-1" slide="right" />
<mount x="459" y="323" rotate="true" mirror="false" gib="-1" slide="right" />
<mount x="250" y="190" rotate="true" mirror="false" gib="-1" slide="no" />
</weaponMounts>

It might not be centered correctly like that but you can change the x and y values to position it correctly.

Type B colors look a bit blotchy.

The Rebels decided to give it a hasty paint job. and a bad one. but it's different colors.
