Probably rather basic questions

Welcome to the shipyards. Here you can discuss how to re-calibrate the positronic neutron flow to double power to the aft shields. Or you can discuss how to add new ships, new maps, new scenarios, new modules, etc. have fun!

Probably rather basic questions

Postby curtis.johnson » Tue Feb 24, 2015 6:53 pm

When creating new ships, what size should the actual picture be, what's the average fighter/frigate/cruiser sizes, and how should I format hulks and stuff?

If you are making run-of-the-mill ships that are similar in size to the vanilla - an image size of 512x512 is perfect. However if your ship size is going to be somewhat larger, then I suggest you should increase the size.

I dont quite understand what you mean by format for hulks and stuff.
- The extension is a .dds file
- I would suggest you have a look at the way that the vanilla ships are put together. That will give you a good starting point

Thanks, regarding the hulks: I saw the fighters need to be specifically arranged. Do cruisers need to as well?

Nope, one hulk file per ship . . .
