FATAL: JSONObject["role desc"] not found.
« on: April 24, 2017, 07:59:35 PM »

Exactly as the name says. When I boot up StarSector with Templars, DiableAvionics, or the Ship/Weapon Pack loaded, it instantly crashes on the loading screen showing the above message. These mods are not out of date, as they were installed today, along with the latest version of StarSector, so I do not know what the problem is.

I have looked over the forum multiple times and I have not found anyone else that has run into this issue, nor have I found a solution.

Are you using SS .8? If so then that is why. Those mods are not updated for the latest version of SS, which JUST got patched about 3 days ago. And the patches break the game
Stop trying to balance the game around a few minmaxers...
