"When it's ready", I'm afraid - apologies :) Working on content as we speak, it's just a combination of a lot of work and not much I can easily talk about without spoiling it, hence the relative lack of new info.

Glad to hear this.  I was worried this was becoming abandonware.  Starsector and Mount and Blade are my absolute favorite games.

You used to be limited to just the Corvus system.

(And before that, it was just missions from the main menu, and with no refitting.)


I found this game from Steam on the X4 forums actually, but then I read about this guys review and watched it and it sold me on buying it just now :D. I wanted to wait for a Steam release, and I can't remember the last game I bought that was not on Steam(probably WoW). I rarely buy things not on Steam PC related, but I caved in here and glad I did. You know your making a great game to get me to buy it lol. Hopefully we can get a key when it comes out on Steam eventually(if it does).

Hah! Thank you :) (Yeah, if/when/etc; things have to line up, so I can't make any real promises on that account.)

That is so far back, I forgot the game used to look like that.  Had to look up the "WTF is Starfarer" video to remember what it used to look like.  Man the game's come so far.

Is there any way to force a specific blueprint to spawn on a planet or derelict?

Is there a way to get a specific blueprint to spawn on a specific planet?  I'm trying to make an "extinct faction" that has left behind its blueprints on its former capital planet.

This is really cool.  Good thinking.  Never thought I'd actually consider putting frigates in my fleet before.

The addition of custom music to mods is going to be so fun to tinker with.

I wanted to put some hardcore industrial rave music in one of my faction's starbases for a laugh.  I imagine this relaxed feeling you get cruising around space and then you land at the base and it's just the hardest bassline ever.

The lore behind that would be that the entire station is basically a giant night-club littered with gun merchants, drug dealers, mercenaries, veterans and hackers.  If primal savagery could be a starbase, this would be it.

"coreColor":[0,255,255],

Probably needs a 4th element there for the alpha.

Thanks.  That solved it.

I'm at my wits end with this thing.  I'm trying to add a third weapon to my mod.  The first two were relatively straightforward, but this one-- I've tried everything, from reordering the names in alphabetical, to disabling the textured beam, etc.  Currently, this thing's almost a direct clone of the tactical laser and it still won't work.

Modding / Re: JSONArray[1] not found.
« on: January 17, 2019, 02:33:13 PM »
Well, this line in the main weapon file also looks suspicious (graphics/weapons is in there twice):

Fixed that, too.  Finally got the JSON error to go away.  It still won't render the textured beam, but I got it to stop crashing with this:
   "textureType":["graphics/fx/altca_helicalph_shell.png","graphics/fx/altca_helicalph_shell.png"],

So now the problem is, the texture doesn't show up, in-game.  :/

Edit:
Well, slap me silly!  I needed the texture to be turned 90 degrees!  FIXED!

It looks like there's a typo in sounds.json (aaltca_helicalph_fire.ogg instead of altca_helicalph_fire.ogg):

Code
      {"file":"sounds/sfx_wpn_energy/aaltca_helicalph_fire.ogg","pitch":1,"volume":0.7},


Alright, fixed it and it's still broken.  Same error about JSONArray[1].

It could be something else, but I think it's something related to altca_helicalph.

java.lang.RuntimeException: Error loading [graphics/ships/altaica_dreadnought1b] resource

Sounds like you might've forgot a .png file extension for the sprite in your .ship file?

Thanks.  I was looking in the .csv file for the problem when it was the .ship file.  That solved it.

I followed this tutorial:
http://starsector.wikia.com/wiki/Intro_to_Modding

And it won't load the ship into the game.  The ship I want in the game is 184 x 528 pixels, a little larger than an Odyssey, smaller than some Diablo Avionics capital ships.

Here's the following error:

Its not a tchnical limitation its a “this is what the game needs” limitation

Well, I'd like to see him say that.

Correct, yes.

Alright, thanks.  I didn't consider it could cause a ripple effect like that.  I was able to trim down the size of the turret I wanted without losing too much detail.  I guess it's not important enough to go through the trouble of adding XL turrets yet, what with the colony management still being very new and probably needing tweaking.  Thanks for the prompt response.

If Alex thinks that he needs XL turrets for ships he will add XL turrets but at the moment i dont see why that would happen.

Its not a tchnical limitation its a “this is what the game needs” limitation

Well, I'd like to see him say that.
