I know I should ask in the questions thread, but how do you get a Miniship to work properly? Because every time I've tried, it overlaps or isn't properly centred. Even if I copy the specs from another miniship.

I personally do not know in terms of coding, I just use superluminal to do it for me ^^; and it works.
Image should be located under customizeUI folder in img in case you are putting it in the wrong location.

Superluminal creates miniships too? Because I thought I had to make one to be added to the folder.

It's not a matter of where I put the file, it's a matter of how the file ends up in game. The ship isn't lined up perfectly with the box, it's always overlapping or out of alignment, etc.

Nope, it only puts the image you provide it in the right place and names it correctly.

Well, it's all just a matter of the image's dimensions -- the miniship image has to be 191x121 (that's the size all vanilla miniships have). Then just center the image, and that's about everything you have to do.
If it's still overlapping, you'll have to reposition the graphic within the image, so that's it's slightly off-center to compensate.

Thanks for the hull image and miniship, and all the help. Also, thanks for the extra pirate hulls, they help a lot!

The pink stuff around the edge is the ship's glow. A simple dab of the magic wand tool in that region can remove most, if not all of it.
