This tool allows you to create player ships packs with a random name, description, hull image, layout, starting items and crew.

Image

This will work with Advanced Edition (1), and with overhaul mods: Arsenal+ (2), Captain's Edition (3), Captain's Remix (4), sM Polish Kit (5), Insurrection (6), and Multiverse (7).
Three levels of ship power are available: weak (8), normal (9) and strong (10) ships.
The autoships switch (11) will allow to generate unmanned ships with some probability.
The color shields switch (12) replaces standard shields with multi-colored ones.
Check the ENG checkbox (13) to play in English or RUS (14) to play in Russian (only for vanilla or Arsenal+).
Click on the unicorn (15) to switch to Full Random mode, in which all the differences between ship classes are erased.
Checkbox Up folder (16) tells the output file to appear in the folder above. You can copy the generator folder to your mods folder and generate a set of ships right there in it.
Checkboxes Forced medbay/clonbay (17) and Forced sensors/doors (18) give you free systems if not enough money to generate them.
Check the Hyperspace checkbox (19) if you are using it in the game. This will allow you to generate additional sets of ships (from 1 to 5), to change their amount, click on the number (20).
You can move the Lanius icon (21) left/right to indicate how many ships will use the procedural generation of hull colors instead of the pre-drawn ones. Procedural color generation can dramatically increase ship generation times!

After selecting the desired settings, click the Generate button. The program status will change to generating... Upon reaching 100%, the output file will appear in the generator folder (or in the folder above depending on your settings).

More settings and detailed instructions can be found in the file FTL_RSG_Data\StreamingAssets\FTL-source\data\0.help_for_using.txt

This should be called the FTL mod generator. Awesome stuff!

How it compares to older Randtrel 1.3.0 from @rannl?

This tool has a bit more settings and overhaul mod support than Randtrel.

Hi,

How long does it take to generate the file? I've waited about 40 minutes and nothing so far, suggesting that it isn't working for me. I've saved it in the mods folder, tried a few different combinations of inputs (strengths, mods, language) and I've since restarted the computer and tried running it in administrator mode, but nothing is being created. Is this an issue with a known solution? 300 hours of Arsenal+ has left me with the desire to try something more random :mrgreen:

Thanks
