////////////////////////// Ship Customizer Mod //////////////////////////
This is a mod that allows to customize and test your ship at first beacon, with access to all systems, crew, weapons, augments, drones, etc. Like BioHazard nicely said: "I can see this helping a lot of people who want to build a ship of their own but not having a clue on how to." This mod is compatible with FTL Advanced Edition and with (almost) all other FTL mods, it will only modify the first beacon.
- Start with a barebone ship, some scrap and customize it entirely.
- Choose from any weapons, drones, augments or crewmembers (including ghost) from the game.
- Install any system, even beyond maximum number of systems.
- Customize starting resources: fuel, scrap, missiles, droneparts and hull damage.
- Go for either a balanced ship (around 800-1200 scrap), an overpowered ship or very weak ship.
- Test your ship in controlled fights before game start.
- When finished, start regular game.

////////////////////////// Instructions //////////////////////////
1.) Install with Slipstream Mod Manager: http://www.ftlgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17102
Patch the Ship Customizer Mod LAST, AFTER any other mod (this is very important for the mod to work properly).
2.) Start the game and select the Ship Customizer Option. You receive the "Ship Customizer Beacon" augment, choose a starting scrap and loose all fuel.
3.) Keep waiting on the star map to improve and test your ship.
4.) To begin regular gameplay, select "Start Game" then confirm. You will loose the SCB augment and can no longer access the Ship Customizer.
5.) The Ship Customizer is compatible with some major FTL mods (see list below). If one or several of those mods are installed, their items (weapons, drones, augments) are available (if not their menu pages are left blank). These mods are not modified in any way after first beacon.

6.) You can install the Ship Customizer Mod along with Addons for a different gameplay, to be patched after the Ship Customizer Mod:
- Unmanned Ship. Start with no crew. Systems will repair automatically but it is advised to equip the "Slug Gel" augment for breaches. You can still get crew but wont loose the game if they die. Always ensure you have either no crew or more than one crew (because loosing the last remaining crew on an unmanned ship can crash the game).

- Some systems (for example artillery) are only available on ships that support them initially. Artillery installation is glitchy and may prevent game from saving properly.
- For technical reasons the "Emergency Respirators" augment is removed with this mod.
- Biohazard made a nice couple of runs using the ship customizer (version around 05/23/2016). This is with an older version of the menu with different entries but you can get the idea. Plus nice run Bio !:
8.) I made a small utility to backup/restore current progress. It is handy for quickly saving a ship made a start beacon. It only works for linux (bash) at the moment:
