Big thanks Trylobot, your editor is fantastic and has a ton of nice features to bust out ships.  One of my favorites is the large zoomable interface that really makes placement a breeze.  Keep up the great dev work!

I really don't have much to say. Your editor has helped me out so much that anything other than not crediting you would be horrible.
 Kudos to you, good sir ;)

So far this thing is amazing.  I have a question and a couple suggestions, though.

Suggestions:
1) Default a new ship's Variant to "Hull" or something similar, so you can easily save a hull variant.  Since the Variant starts out plain, this shouldn't be too hard.
2) Somehow let the program link to the Descriptions file where you can input the ship's description for the codex and such.  Currently this has to be done manually.
3) Some sort of failsafe so you don't override your main game files and screw something up would be nice.  Not that I did that.  Nope.  Totally didn't.


Question:
1) Is there any way to give a ship more side-to-side maneuverability?  I want to make a ship that "Strafes" a lot.  But currently I'm not seeing anything about that as an option.

Hull variants are generated procedurally by the game, according to Alex.

It's doubtful I will ever add description editing to this tool, as its simply too easy to edit them in notepad right now, and my platform lacks basic GUI elements so it would be a disproportionate amount of work to put this feature in. I might anyway, in the future, but it's probably the lowest on my list.

Strafing is hardcoded via a formula based on the overall thrust, and modulated according to the ship size; frigates get a bunch of strafe. cap ships get practically none. I was actually asking Alex myself about this last week  8)

Is it not possible to purposefully misclassify a ship to adjust that then? Does it affect anything else? Might give it a try.

Make your ship bigger than its sprite suggests, but that would affect... Everything.

Awwww.  That's disappointing.  I wonder if we'll be able to change that somewhere down the road...

Just copy and paste the one that's in the core data, delete the records and start from there. Though you may need to tweak the separators in the spreadsheet application to just use commas and nothing else
