How does one even use this to make weapons?
I certainly can't figure it out

I added a weapon .csv editor to my latest branch, among a few other features/bugfixes, so you should have an easier time creating weapons if Deathfly approves the changes.

Request - can we have skin editor mode too?

I'll look into this next. I haven't played around with skins and what they do yet, so it might take a little time.

I was just wondering. Maybe I'm missing something but I've tried to create a weapon with this and I couldn't figure out how to add another barrel to the weapon.  I'm trying to make a small 2 barrel flak turret.

I haven't made any weapons with this yet, but I believe you need to add offsets - have an offset on each barrel. If you load the weapon data from the dual flak cannon in the core data files, you can see how that is put together.

I'll try that then. I had tried holding shift and clicking to add offsets but nothing happened so I'll try that instead.

Can anyone give a tutorial on how to run this in WINE on Mac? It's giving me a heck ton of trouble.

I can't help right now but FYI: yes it is possible, you'll have to screw around with it quite a bit, a good place to start is installing WineBottler and XQuartz.

Would it be at all possible to adapt the Ship&Weapon Editor to provide stacked sprites, as they appear in the game?

We've got an ongoing issue with the wiki(s) where sprites need to be manually stacked together.  This is becoming a more pressing concern now that we're heading full steam towards increased automation of wiki activities (for vanilla Starsector and likely also mods)

Some of the mod authors have also requested that sprites to go on a prospective wiki be modified to make theft more difficult.  I have zero experience working with sprites.  Is it at all practical to have some form of automated function to rotate or interleave sprites?

Ideally what I'm seeking is something I can call from a Powershell script, that will be provided with the relevant sprite file locations & offset data and then stack the sprites together, with bonus points for rotation or interleaving

In case i`m dumb and / or just lazy to use search - please forgive me :)

I was trying to find a way to add fighter wings to ship variants in this editor, but it doesn`t seem to be here. More so, loading a variant with manually assigned wings just deletes them upon saving.

Any ideas if it is me or the editor that is bugged?

Don't think the editor has been updated to include 0.8+ features yet, like fighters being changed to ship weapons and the such.

The editor needs to be updated to support Wings and installed Fighters, Okim.  We haven't heard from the current maintainer in a little while, either, so we'll have to see if somebody else will need to fix that.

I at least got it to compile on Ubuntu Linux. Buggy as ***, but hey, it compiles:

Code
# grab blitzmax from https://nitrologic.itch.io/blitzmax and unpack wherever
sudo apt install libc6-dev-i386 lib32stdc++-6-dev mesa-common-dev:i386 libxpm-dev:i386 libfreetype6-dev:i386 libx11-dev:i386 libglu1-mesa-dev:i386 libxft2-dev:i386
BMK_LD_OPTS="-lgcc -ldl -lfontconfig" /path/to/bmk makeapp -a -r -t gui -o sf-ship-ed.exe sf-ship-ed.bmx

*edit - upon actually trying things the easy way and using Wine, stuff just works. >_<

I was working on this for a while, but it's more complicated than I expected it to be. Given that I don't have much experience with Object BASIC, it's pretty much beyond my ability. However, I'm working on a whole new editor for SS in GM:S2 which will include fighter bays. That'll be a long way out though sorry. Best bet for now is to add them manually.

Do you think we could have compatibility for Ship Modules that borrows multiple files and emulates the multi-sectional ship anytime soon?
