I think I've found the culprit. Will PM you a fixed work-in-progress version.

New update! Sorry for taking so long, several of the editor's features were giving me some trouble.
Changelog:
  • Fixed - Player ships with max crew equal to 0 (automated ships) now export the crew tag only once (previously there would be 7 additional, superfluous copies)
  • Fixed - Fixed systems' start availability status not loading when opening a project
  • Fixed - Adjusted the size of coordinate boxes at the bottom of the editor, so that the text they're displaying shouldn't get cut off
  • Fixed - Ships loaded from an .ftl package now will correctly export with images from that package
  • Fixed - Disparities between in-editor and in-game positions of rooms should now be gone
  • Fixed - Fixed an oversight in KuroSaru's datLib that would cause the editor to create a wrong folder structure on Macs
  • Fixed - Fixed a bug that would prevent the editor from exporting the artillery NO-slide weapon mount
  • Added - Added a Calculate Optimal Offset option, which attempts to find the best offset for the ship so that it is centered at the in-game screen (doesn't take the vertical property into account). Located in Edit menu.
  • Added - Re-implemented room splitting
  • Added - Re-implemented Weapon Mount Tool's slide and mirror indicators
  • Added - Added possibility to link doors to rooms, to create "gateways" that allow crewmen to move between rooms, even if they're not physically connected. However, this is discouraged, as it exploits an FTL bug. Explanation. Check documentation for how-to.
  • Added - Enemy ships now load and export information about their system stations. Also, enemy ships that don't have the slot defined will now load their default slots (which are random for some systems)
  • Added - Implemented shift-dragging. Works on hull, shield, mounts and gibs. Works with precision mode.
  • Changed - Because of the above, weapon mounts' mirror toggle has been changed from shift-left-click to alt-right-click
  • Changed - Ship choice dialog is now vertically resizable
  • Changed - Slightly modified the way interior images are handled. Nothing too important, but there may be some hidden bugs and crashes due to my forgetfulness
Last two items on my to-do list, bugs nonwithstanding:
  • Gibs animation simulation
  • Glow image browsing and export

I'm having a little trouble finding which save directory to save it to when exporting it. Can someone please help.

Huh? It doesn't matter where you export the ship. You can just export it to your desktop, so you can find it easily.

You need to use Grognak's Mod Manager to load mods (that are in .ftl format). Download it and make sure to thoroughly read the first post - everything's described there :)

I only need to say, very good job dude. Great updates and improvements, the utility to link doors to rooms is just great, only 4 days ago i was working on a borg cube (very big) and i was trying to make gates between more than 30 different doors... in the end i just gave up, since the design changed as well. Im glad that u keep improving and making better the editor, i have no doubt right now that is the best so far in the community and probably in the future as well.

I think i speak for everyone when i say this editor saved my life a lot of times xD.

Thx!.

I know I'm repeating myself, but amazing work as always. At this point I'd say the editor surpasses anything anyone could ask of such a tool, yet you keep adding awesome functionality I wouldn't have thought of, let alone dreamt of having.

Thanks, really. This is such an awesome thing to have. :)
