Hey everybody, I've started working on this tutorial on Starsector modding for complete beginners, hosted over on the unofficial Starsector wiki. Right now it's just a comprehensive tutorial on creating a custom ship, but I plan to expand it greatly at a rate of about 1 section every few days over the next couple of weeks. Thought it might be of use to some people. Smiley

This is absolutely fantastic! Thank you for doing it and I hope you keep going. Smiley

[Edit] In the 'ship editor' section I recommend adding a link to the ship editor, as its an external piece of software and there are a couple different, more and less up to date programs floating around the forum.

There's a link in the very beginning where I go over what you'll need, but fair enough -- I've added another link in the section itself.  Smiley

I'd really appreciate a complete and detailed video on compiling the game/a mod.

Hey there, I have dived into modding star systems and markets a bit and made my own small mod on those so I might as well add what I dug to your tutorial? It wont be full but it will let you make your own star systems, write the planets in the system yourself or make planet generating script for it and add whatever market conditions you want to the planets you make.

For sure! There's already a section for it, just please make sure it's as well screenshotted/explained.  Smiley

Or if you want, make a new page for it and I can link to it?

I have added my small tutorial to your page, it has a link to a video made by WadeStar I learned from and then my own additions that cover what I struggled with and point out what you have to be carefull with. There are also several extra things that were not mentioned in tutorial such as where you can find the list of all market conditions. I have added it only to System creation, adding markets to planets in said system too due to it doesnt say how to mod market conditions but only how to add them to your planets.
I currently have issues on wiki with making full size pictures, I can add screenshots but they are automaticly transformed into very low resolution versions, how do I make them beter resolution?
