Latest Changes


editor version 2.3 (starfarer 0.53.1a RC5)
- added support for BUILT_IN and SYSTEM weapons
  includes being able to set the weapon from *.SHIP mode
  and includes not being able to modify the built-in weapons in *.VARIANT mode
  and includes not counting OPs from built-in weapons in *.VARIANT mode
- added support for Custom Engine STYLE ID:
  this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to use over the STYLE SPEC per-engine.
  But to use it, you must first define your Engine Style ID in the following:
    data/config/engine_styles.json
- fixed bug in CSV Loader to properly quote fields containing commas

Traylobot i got this in my ship file in all Weapons code:

{
      "angle": -90,
      "arc": 90,
      "id": "WS0002",
      "locations": [
        -11,
        -16.5
      ],
      "mount": "TURRET",
      "position": null,
      "size": "SMALL",
      "type": "ENERGY"
    },


What is that: "position": null,   ?
I use last version 2.3

Just as a possible way to make the editor even more extensive, why not make the engine slot tool also be able to make an engine as a maneuvering jet? (IE like the conquest)


Oh, I was wondering when someone would ask that. You set the otherwise-unused "contrailSize" field to 128 to flag the engines as hidden (let's be kind to me and call it a "creative use of an existing, unused field for binary flags" - rather than an "awful hack"). They'll be activated by any system that modifies the engine glow.

@arcibalde: is it causing a crash?

@FlashFrozen: I didn't even know about that. I'll add it to my to-do list.

I noticed that once you load a line in the CSV mode, you can't set the line being edited to a blank one (if there is a way, it wasn't clear, or I was blind and failed to see <.>)

Also would it be possible to allow us to type in values for the angle & firing arcs on weapons? It can be very hard to find the exact pixels that yield a perfect 360.0 when using a weird base angle.

@Avan: Excellent suggestions. To-do'ed

As a workaround 'til then, set the arc to 360 degrees first. Then, clone that turret a bunch. Then set the angle. Ta-da

Cool!

Also I didn't realize we could clone them - that's useful :D

Heyas, tried this out and I love it, especially the Mirror feature and zooming; just a couple of hopefully-minor things that I'd like to see improved:

Spoiler
1.  If you edit a CSV, it consolidates the CSV, getting rid of blank lines I've left to keep myself organized.  Can you get it to respect blanks, and, if we assign a ship an index number that is +1 for a sequence (say, 212, which would put it right after Vanilla's Shade) can it insert the line right after that number?  Both changes would save some manual editing.

2.  I love how this loads the custom mod data; if you've edited a mod before, can you make it save that and prompt the user whether they want to "keep working on your mod" and if they click yes, then reload the mod data?  Would save some clicks every time we load up.

3.  When it's time to be picky and get everything down to final adjustments, it'd be nice to be able to edit the numbers for things like weapon placement manually, which doesn't seem to be possible atm (sorry if there's a way, I just couldn't figure it out).  It'd also be nice if, when zoomed, it shows me the placement position as exactly as possible.

4.  Engine width in-game is maybe half the width that it appears in the editor.  It'd be nice to have a superimposed flame in Preview that was close to the in-game scale, look and size to make sure that's a good fit.  Just a minor issue ofc, but it's one or two more trips through the editing cycle and reloading the game :)

5.  It'd be really handy to have a preview of a phase ship in phased and unphased mode.

Anyhow, this is great, really looking forward to a PROJ / WPN editing mode :)
