Happens sometimes because the mod paths in the settings get corrupted: open sf-ship-ed-settings.json and either remove or correct the paths to your mod. Often it's written like
Code
"data_dir": "C:\\Starsector\\mods\\YourMod\\data\\hulls\\",
and must be changed to
Code
"data_dir": "C:/Starsector/mods/YourMod/data/hulls/",

This was my problem. May be this.

Don't know if this was a reply to me but I tried it anyway and it didn't work.
And shouldn't the / be \ ?

Anyway the errors are gone and the Exception_Acces_Violation also.
But now when I double click the editor nothing happens.

I need to fork out $80 for BlitzMax, yes?

No, there's a free version of BlitzMax that is fully-functional (it is open source now) and will compile the editor fully. All you have to do is download it from here: http://www.blitzbasic.com/Products/_index_.php

And then checkout my git repository from here: https://github.com/Trylobot/sf-ship-ed

I will review any incoming pull requests and update the releases page as necessary if they improve the editor.

Great, I'll see if I can hack at this sometime, seeking out the weird recursion-crash issues with bad path filenames and a couple of other things. 

My free time is severely limited ATM but perhaps I can get back to this stuff :)

Is this .7 compatible now that ships come with a sensor profile + emergency burn?

Not even a little bit, but I'll be starting work on understanding all the changes with the latest Starsector version this weekend. After that I'll be updating Nomads and this editor at the same time, because I believe that combination will keep me upbeat and motivated! As well as probably spending some nice long hours and quality time with Starsector again :)

Excellent, that sounds great. The return of the nomads and a working ship editor.

Ship Editor Announcement:

You can now report issues with the editor here: https://github.com/Trylobot/sf-ship-ed/issues

I will be using the GitHub issues system as a bug tracker and a to-do list for the editor starting now. It's currently empty, but I'll be putting all of my planned work into it, and prioritizing it. If you use the system to make suggestions instead of purely bugs, keep them realistic and I might consider them. I'm currently in discovery and catch-up mode, to refresh my memory of the code and compile a list of changes that need to be made for full compatibility with Starsector v0.7a RC1. I'll also be going through the changelogs from Alex to help the process.

This should, also, hopefully make my work on the editor a little more transparent to you all as well!

- T

Update: version 2.6.3 is up https://github.com/Trylobot/sf-ship-ed/releases/tag/2.6.3

I wanted to use the issue tracker, but you need a log-in to do so and I don't like the idea of Signing up just for 3 reports. I'll do it there if you don't mind:

 - Mods path get sometimes corrupted: "EXCEPTION ACCESS VIOLATION" when the paths change from "C:/Starsector/mods/yourMightyMod/" to "C:\\Starsector\\mods\\yourMightyMod/"

 - When editing the ship_data.CSV, the graph show the existing values for all ships, it would probably be more useful to only have the data from the ships of the same size. That would certainly help in avoiding the most common balance mistakes.

 - And if possible, it would be really really really great to have the possibility to display the deco weapons when placing them. They require more precision than conventional weapons and mods relies more and more on them to make interesting effects.

Same here, Trylobot. I think that your ship editor is the single most important modding contribution to this game. 8)
So many faction mods would likely have never existed without it. Im happy youve chosen to resume working on SF Edit.

Don't tell me I'm playing anything wrong in a singleplayer sandbox game. Just don't.

I guess I could write a brief tutorial on that.  It's not too complicated, but there are a lot of options to look at, etc.
More tutorials are always good.

Don't know if this has been reported before but the hybrid weapon mounts don't work right.
When you want to assign a weapon to such a mount in the variant editor the list will be empty and won't show ballistic/energy weapons.
