pimp my ship?

Postby ponyus » Fri May 27, 2011 4:48 pm

alright, so heres the story. i found this app called pimp my gun (http://pimpmygun.doctornoob.com/index.php) and saw that someone had made something that looked like a ship. everytime i see a ship in 2d i instantly think of GSB, so i did what any modder would. i started experimenting.

i made half the ship in the app, then edited a little in paint.net

turned out pretty good for a 5 minute ship...

EDIT: nother one done.

anyways, i wanted to share this to all of you who are/want to start modding gsb, but find it hard to make the graphics.

Well, there goes my problems with creating the ships.

-Epicness!-

Now I just have to worry about turrets and weapon effects.

EDIT: I found a webpage with the entire freakin' spectrum of color codes

Here's my first ship, the Scythe.

(I'll have to re-do it and add gun positions)

Excellent find, Shylo! :D It also beats the hell out of the built-in color chooser in standard phpBB forum software (i.e., ours). What delicious insanity. ;)

I had an idea a while back for something like this but using GSB parts. For example, there would be an engines tab with engines from each race, bridges tab, main hulls, etc. I got the Alliance, Federation, and Empire engines and PMed them to Kemp suggesting he put a "ship builder" like that in GSBEdit (which reminds me to check that project's progress) and I can post them here if anyone wants, although its not really that hard to do yourself.
That is all.

It is indeed on my list, and may actually get done one day. I have to admit, I haven't touched GSBEdit recently unfortunately due to real life getting in the way. I will make it up to you guys though (assuming there is still a potential userbase for the app).

I still check the website each day to see if there's anything new and cool that's been made!
