[0.95a] Paintjob ver 003: Swapping skins in-game.
« on: November 21, 2020, 04:20:01 PM »

A relatively easier and less intrusive way to switch out skins mid game using a hullmod. You still need to edit the settings.json and paintable_ships.csv files located in paintjob/data/config. Examples with Dominator and Onslaught is provided.

Known Issues:
-Each Hull ID also needs a _default_D version to prevent a crash.
-Does not changes the sprites in Campaign View and some menus.
-Sprites need to be in 24bit png file, otherwise will shows up as invisible.

Future Plans:
-Indexing through multiple skins.
-Custom Hullmod icon.
-Unifying all needed changes in a single file.

Custom Skins Are Not Included



 Change Log
001: Initial release for 9.1a
002: Recompiled for 95a
003: Added mod plugin script to change ship sprites in some menus as well.
