Added a note in the OP about Biohazard063's playthroughs of Randtrel ships on youtube.

You can find the link here (from episode 84 and onwards).

Managed to support the extra random ship build request sonner then I thought :

Released an update which adds extra random ships to the B and C slots of the player ships, so now you'll get a selection of random ships instead of running the tool a second and third time.

A few relatively minor issues have popped up :
1. The engine fires are gone from the B/C random Kestral and Fed ships. I changed the value normally used for the B/C layouts names in the shipblue prints, and I believe the engine fire animation is hard coded to use the default layout names. Correct me if I'm wrong.
2. The 3 federation ship varients will all use the same artillery weapon. The best I can do in the future is to give the 3rd varient a differet weapon.
3. The 2 crystal ship varients will use the same crystal vengence effect. The shard weapon blueprint is hardcoded to the augment, meaning only one blueprint can be used.

If you have any suggestions as to what you'd like to see next with the Randtrel, please comment.

I unzipped everything for v1.1.0 (except the source) into a folder and ran the EXE, and got this:

Got configuration : srcFile [File] = assetList.xml, seed [int] = -1719707560,
Exception in thread "main" javax.imageio.IIOException: Can't read input file!
at javax.imageio.ImageIO.read(Unknown Source)
at flagshipgenerator.gui.GuiWindow.<init>(GuiWindow.java:59)
at flagshipgenerator.FlagshipGenerator.main(FlagshipGenerator.java:52)

Note: This is the first time I've ever run this, so don't know if it's new with 1.1.0 or something that would have happened to me with any version.

I tried in admin mode, same thing. I'm using Oracle Java standard edition 7 update 71.

You mentioned you did not unzip the source. If you mean the RandtrelSource folder, then that is the cause - this folder contains the tool resource files (images, asset pool files, not the source code of the tool). The tool can't run without the folder. The resources are not packed into the jar file on purpose - this allows every user to view the resources easily.

Aha. I feel dumb for not trying that. Just so many modders include the source code in the distribution zip, I figured this folder was unnecessary.

I assume you got the tool to work ? Any comments/ideas/suggestions ?

None yet, but there's a little showcase episode coming in my YouTube feed in a couple days. The only problem I had was that the shields didn't show up but I'm pretty sure that was my fault. I loaded your mod last and I think I should have loaded the Shiny! mod last. No bigs, the shields did their job they were just not visible.

Actually, it's a bug in the mod :oops: . I didn't add the required shields and cloaking images to the correct resources folder.
I appologize.
This has been fixed in the current release, just redownload from the link on the OP.

Yeah, ship mods always go last after everything. Even graphical mods like that.

Speaking of which... I need to update Shiny! for CE. :| But the Vanilla version works fine still thankfully.

EDIT: ALSO, you may not have even noticed, but some of your crew portraits are still out of alignment with their yellow outlines when using Detailed Crew Portraits with Shiny! To fix this you just need to download this patch and install it "in place of"/"instead of" Lord Trilobite's Crew Portraits file.

Thanks! I vaguely recall needing to do that and never did. I have now so the next run (After the DA-SR 12 I recorded just after what I did for this mod) it'll be in there.
