Started work on the XML loading :)
Image
All the weapon data etc is loaded from the XML, so if you're added a bunch of custom weapons, no problem, they'll show up (I might add a weapon editor too at some point, dunno, would people want this?)
Love FTL? Wish you could fly around in the USS Enterprise, the Tardis, or a ship that looks just like your own face? Check out FTLEdit, a ship editor for FTL, so you can create your own custom ships and play them!
Don't forget to share them too! :)

A weapon editor would be cool. Its looking pretty good so far.
send me a message with a link if you see spam and I will take care of it.

So, pretty major question - How streamlined would you like this to be?

Should it spit out just the xml for the ship, or automatically replace whatever ship you edited in the blueprints.xml file? Or even repack it back into the data.dat? Or just export a file to be loaded into that mod manager?

Or, add options for all of the above? I'm not quite sure how people would want to use it, so feedback is awesome :) Bear in mind more options takes longer, what would you want the most?

It'd be great if you could replace *any* ship with an edited variant. It'd also be great if you could load enemy ship layouts in and use those. As for repacking it... well, that'd be helpful, but the repacker GUI is always there for me, so it's secondary in necessity

The interface looks so good... I can't wait until you release it.

How will we get the ships themselves? Can we import images to go behind the ship?

I ask these because I want to make a giant TARDIS.
