Also having issues with 'EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION' whenever I try to open any weapon_data.csv. Have done so after loading the .wpn file, but it still doesn't play nice.

If you have weapon_data.csv open in other CSV editors (OpenOffice, etc.) you may have problems.  Honestly, the right place to edit those files is in an editing environment meant for CSVs; I use Google Sheets, for example.

The Ship Editor has always had problems with .csv files for me; I use a dedicated editor and I think it's much better.

Given how many things that aren't weapons or ships also use .csv files, you're going to need a .csv editor anyway, so you might as well use it for all the files.

Hey I figure this is just me missing something really obvious, but I'm trying to make a custom ship and whenever I try to add weapon slots it throws the EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION as soon as I hit shift and then crashes the program. Not sure what I'm missing but I feel like it's going to be something painfully obvious

Exact same problem. I just add it manually at this point, though it sucks that I cannot see the arch of fire, I just gotta guess what seems right.

EDIT: FOUND A FIX!
ADD A SINGLE WEAPON SLOT MANUALLY, ANYWERE (Use my code if you want)
Quote
"weaponSlots": [
        {
            "angle": 0,
            "arc": 12,
            "id": "WS 001",
            "locations": [
                29.5,
                -29.5
            ],
            "mount": "HIDDEN",
            "size": "SMALL",
            "type": "BALLISTIC"
        }
],
THEN OPEN THE FILE IN THE EDITOR! It will let you add stuff via the editor after that, I found out by mistake lol.

Well that worked. Thanks for sharing the fix. Wonder why it's busted if you don't have a manually added weapon in first.

I'm not sure which version of the ship editor they're using, but some people are having problems with the program inserting \r line break characters in strange places.
I've also encountered ships having "coversColor":"\r\r"

It's also inserting line-breaks into Colors, positions of offsets in Weapons, etc., which makes for messy reading.  On offsets, in general, it'd be nice if they were recorded in X,Y /r  rather that X, /r  Y, /r.  So, this:

"hardpointOffsets":[0, 0],

Rather than:

"hardpointOffsets":[0,
                          0],

And with multiple points:

"hardpointOffsets":[0, 0,
                          5, 10],

Rather than:

"hardpointOffsets":[0,
                          0,
                           5,
                          10],

Feature Request:  it'd be quite awesome to have working color-picker for Glows / Beams and if the Preview mode showed shots / beams emitted from Weapons.  This is a major request though.

I really hope the issue of Hull Mods getting sorted by alpha-order gets resolved.  It's really making the last bits of polish on what I'm doing difficult, as I'm working through a lot of Variants.

There's a big issue with Skins that use a Variant that can cause a crash-bug for the game.  Skins that need a Variant, but disable a weapon slot, aren't "known" by SSED.  Putting a weapon into said slot with SSED causes a crash when the game operates.

Known issue, the current work-around is to open the .ship file with notepad and place a single weapon slot manually (open a vanilla ship to see how it is done), after that the editor will work fine.
