[0.9.1a] STARSECTOR Ship&Weapon Editor (3.0.0-alpha-5)
« on: December 13, 2016, 01:33:14 AM »

sigh, at the beginning I just want to replace that background image.

What's this?

This is an update of Trylobot's ship editor, forked from Trylobot's original works.

Since the ship editor is a great (and the only) tool for StarSector ship modding. Most of us can endure some little glitches and maybe a little incompatibility from the slightly out of date version. But some Mod M***si cann't stand it any more and murmuring for an update. So here it is.

I may occasionally use this page to put out some pre-release alpha version for testing proper.

Now testing:

3.0.0-alpha-5

 3.0.0-alpha-5

 - Hot fix a bug that will remove the weapon slot angle if it equal to 0

 Pre-release alpha version.

 - Compatible with Starsector 0.9.1a .
 - Implemented "zoom to window center" and "zoom to cursor" features. And use zoom to cursor as default.
 - Implemented "Reset view point" features.
 - Rework weapon slot icons to make different weapon slots are more distinguishable.
 - Fix a bug the result a soft lock when try to edit wings in Variant Editing mode.

 KNOWN ISSUES

 - Opening a variant file that contain 0.8-to-0.9-ish STATION_MODULE format (e.g. station_small_Standard.variant) will lead to a crash.
 - Weapon render order do not affected by new weapon render order modifiers (e.g. renderOrderMod) yet. (I am still working on this one.)
 - Skin Editor do not work properly.

About language localisation
Spoiler
You can download ENG.ini, the default language definition file from the release site, and the main part of it should read like this.

...
wt_main = "STARSECTOR Ship&Weapon Editor"
wt_load_core = "Please Select Starsector Install Directory"
wt_load_mod = "LOAD Mod Directory"
...

The left side of equal-sign is the internal token and please DON'T change it.
The quoted strings on the right is the strings for display. You can translate it into your desired language.

This program is run in Latin-1 code by default and should support the full Latin-1 characters display.
If you need full Unicode support, you should change "UTF8_support" to 1 in settings, to enable UTF-8 support. Then specify a "custom_FONT" by path to display the non-Latin characters.

For those that used the ship editor for so long, and those that are new to it.

This update of the venerable tool is a dramatic improvement that I highly recommend.

So good. Runs gorgeously under WINE, BTW, for anyone else on a Mac or running Linux.

Might be something on my end, but after using CTRL + Alt + N to clear data, panning does not work.

Uh, help, I cannot find the exe file, instead, I think something called "BMX" is in it's place?

Now, it's either me, or this is a coder instead of a hardpoint editor?

Whenever I load it with BlitzMax (I have absolutely no experience with editors, I even read the readme and I haven't a clue on what to do), it just shows a bunch of code, no background with your ship in the back to add hardpoints or anything...

I am not the developer, but it seems to me that you downloaded the source code, not the executable.
