Semi-organic ships are a cool idea indeed ! It would complement well with the high-tech look of UIN ships and the green hulls of the XLE. Also, thanks for the tip about mouse strafing, I had absolutely no idea I could do that !

Well, its not organic actually. And that`s the problem. Its like glueing a granite plate to a modern tank - looks kinda weird.

All i can do is to put Rock Fly plates on the ships. On the other hand i can imagine this faction finding a way to manipulate Rock Fly development process to 'grow' parts out of the eggs giving a desired shape to the plates and probably recreating some weapons (like spike thrower and melter beams). So it would be legal to make a new set of ships.

In my mind i was thinking that the ships would look patchworked. Very much in the way you have the marauders design... only with the rockfly's dessicated body parts. Pirates are smart enough to slap things on the hull but not necassarily smart, organized or financed enough to create tech of anykind.

Anyway, glad you thought it through. Based on what i've seen so far, whatever you come up with will be great.

Well, i`ll try to make a couple of sprites both for scrappish approach and grown approach and see which one is better.

Well, you could have something like a "composite" ship plating with bone inlays, like in an ancient decorated box. For instance, the flank of the ship would be 3/4 standard plating and 1/4 bone plate inlays, maybe lined with bolts and metal connectors along the edges of the bone section. It would, in my opinion, look better than just to strap rock plates over standard ones and it's compatible with the idea of something that has either been cut and shaped (or grown) to fit into a particular slot, like over the vital areas of a ship.

Great mod and i've been playing it for a bit but a while ago the game crashed on me with the message talked about in this thread (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=5389.0)
Any idea what it might be that's causing it?
Everytime i try to play with the mod i'm crashing a few seconds after starting a game with the Fatal: Null error message.

This mod does not work with ANY other mods, even utility mods are not recommended to be used with it.

The other problem could be in you using old versions of the game itself. If so - upgrade it to 0.6.2a rc3.

Post the last portion of your log file (starsector-core/stasector.log) here or the log file itself.

Thanks anyway :).

The new update is great! I especially like the UIN prototype combat carrier.

I still think that some of the AI should have shields (maybe with flux shunts?).

A large carrier and a couple of fighters for AI? Hm...

I was thinking about the fighters, but not about the carrier actually. These have a nice odds to be added to the mod.

Put at the end of the file these strings (including ','):


,
"builtInMods":["tow_cable"],
Go to the Burlack hull file and put this in. That should fix the RSF tug problem.

Thanks. I suspect that old ShipEditor is to blame for not saving the built-in hull mod for this tug ;)
