Official Website for Ship Designs, Mods, and Maps
« on: January 27, 2011, 06:33:16 PM »
We've just release a new part of the website, a place where you can upload, download, rate, and comment on ship designs!

http://starruler.blind-mind.com/designs

We also have support for Mods and Maps, although we're still working on those parts.

This is looking very promising. And that's a massive understatement.

Thank you!

Looks great, thank you. I had been trying to to find a location where I can find other people's ship designs.

I've uploaded an improved version of the site which fixes a few bugs and adds a few new features: You can hide groups of sub systems (e.g. all armor), delete and replace designs, and a few other minor features.

What are you doing?! Your applying your game patch/update mentality to a website. The internet was not designed for such awesome coding power to be applied in such a short time-span as you guys are used to. The internet is not ready for you!

The site is overwhelmingly the work of Howard Lince, I just did some minor tweaks in places.

How do I delete designs? I can't find the button.

Maybe that feature didn't make it in this revision. I'll ask when I see him next.

Er... Has the site been rolled back to an earlier version? I cannot see how or where to delete and replace designs, something I would 'dearly' love to be able to do. Even just replacing the downloadable files would be a big step. I've uploaded a few designs, two of which required 'MK2' versions to fix bugs. The old buggy versions are still there as separate uploads, just cluttering up the place and waiting to confuse people.

Thy Reaper,

soon CiviliMod Studios will be releasing a web site for our group. We can host some mods. I guess.

You need to place it in "Documents\My Games\Star Ruler\Profiles\Script Data\Layouts". If you haven't exported a ship design yet, you may need to create either the Script Data or Layouts folder (or export a design to have the game make them for you). If the design is for a mod, it would be Mods/*mod*/Profiles/Script Data/Layouts instead.

Strange... I'm not finding this "layouts". I found Mods/Galactic Armory/Script Data/Folders.xml instead. By chance the correct option would not be Mods/Galactic Armory/Models?  :-\

The folder may not have been created yet, like I mentioned. You'll need to create it or have the game create it by exporting a design.

I'll search in the Internet and find how to create a new folder. I will test if the download worked or not.

You can export a design from within the game to have it make the folder for you if you aren't sure how to create the folder.

The problem is that I don't know how to export a design.

You export a design from the blueprint editor, in the top right of that screen. Same place you'd need to click to import it from that folder.

I tried to import the desing I downloaded using the info you give me and again, nothing happened! I put the design in the fold "Layout" in "Script Data" exactly like you told me.

Do you get an error message when trying to import the design? If so, it will tell you the reason (or at least one of the reasons) it failed; keep in mind you will need to have the corresponding technologies unlocked in order for this to work.


(I'm also not 100% sure if this design will work with the last release of the mod as it was created in an earlier version.)

Does the design even show up in the list of importable designs?


EDIT:
Just checked it, the design does indeed work in the latest release. However, you need some pretty high tech levels to unlock the required subsystems; the advanced AI core, for instance, requires Computers 11.

Just to make sure, the location where you need to copy the file to should be:

Code: [Select]
C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\My Games\Star Ruler\Mods\GalacticArmory\Profiles\Script Data\Layouts

I don't get any error message when I'm trying to import the design, but... I don't have any of the technologies used on it. I think that means I'm a idiot for waste your time guys . Forgive me for my stupidity.   :-[

Hi again! this time I have a little doubt: how I build a Orbital Refinery in Galactic Armory? I created and I'm using this design (http://starruler.blind-mind.com/designs/view/572) but I don't know if it is correct.



And yes... the idiot here finally learned how to import/export ship designs.   :-[

Looks good, but...


... how do you get the ore to the station? It doesn't have a mining laser, so you will have to use additional mining ships to harvest the ore and, if I remember correctly, manually tell them to supply the station with ore and then go back to mining. If I'm not mistaken you will need to make use of the 'repeat' command by pressing the 'R' key, giving the orders I just mentioned and then pressing the 'R' key again.


Then again, it's been a while since I really played the game so maybe there's an easier way to do this (well, strapping a mining laser to the station and have it mine from your planets directly is).
