Modding / Ship design suggestons?
« on: January 11, 2022, 11:35:49 AM »
Not really a question about modding as a whole, more of just looking for opinions. Figured I would make a thread because I didn't want to either throw an existing thread off topic, or post this somewhere where is it not relevant. If there is a better place to put this, feel free to move it or something.

I had an idea a while ago and wanted to make it into a mod, but I'm not 100% how I should go about it. I want phase ships that follow midline mount type, movement, armor, ect... I kitbashed a bit and scoured the sprite databases and experimented with just slapping phase coils on some things and calling it good, but that's not my work, it's somebody else's. Instead I just took rough shapes of midline ships and messed around and made it basically my own(sort of). Felt better about it, so I will likely be doing that along with trying to draw/detail potentially original designs, but I'm stuck on the color and detailing bits. I would like it to at least somewhat resemble vanilla midline in terms of how the armor is fashioned on the ship. Not copy and paste, but you won't get the high or low tech vibe, just similar to midline. In my personal opinion, I like the colors black and red, so I went with dark gray and colored some plates red. I like the look of it, but in reading Vayra's tutorial on how to make a ship, no black outlines was a pretty important bit, it seemed. Would a darker gray be too close to black for it to be okay? As far as the detailing goes, would it be better to just make my own type of styling if I have trouble with the midline styling? Then if I do that, would it be better to just make my own faction from it? I wouldn't be terribly opposed to it, but it would add to the to-do list.

Any suggestions about coloring or detailing is welcome. Questions are also okay. I'm just somewhat stuck on how to proceed. I've already made 2 ships that I'm somewhat satisfied with, but I don't want to spend a bunch of time on something that isn't even good.

Bug Reports & Support / Game crash from pirate bounties
« on: April 05, 2021, 06:53:01 PM »
Each time I get a system bounty quest from a contact that's outside the core worlds, the game will immediately crash upon one of the pirate fleets coming into contact with my fleet at all. Took a screenshot of the error message if it helps. I'm not sure if it would have anything to do with mods, but it might be worth noting. Though I have not had any issues with mods at all. It may also be worth pointing out that the fleets that do cause my game to crash do not always have modded ships.
