MadTulip`s Spaceship Mod Rev. 865

Spaceship: Block by Block; Objects like Thrusters; Space mechanics; Landable!, Flyable Scoutships

  1. madtulip
    Mod by HuggableCreep, MadTulip, TooManySecrets, thesidofevil (since rev 776) and thakyZ (since rev 808).

    Doccumentation is currently limited. WIP.

    The mod is about building your own spaceship block by block. When you start a new character you get a small starting ship like the one in the image below (human version) which features a Shipstation. On your Shipstation you can craft all the components of the spaceship you see (like the large fin) and many more. Ressource requirements for the individual parts span over some tiers of ore. Another craftingstation which you will need to build in the process is the Metalpress which is available at the Shipstation as well.

    There is also some Spaceship physics or mechanics included which i.e. let you float with zero gravity in space or damage your character if your ship has a hull breach. The little fan you see on the left side is a life support system. These are required to stay healthy onboard your ship while not wearing a space suit. Mechanics like theese that put some constrains on the ship beeing functional are also a topic of this mod which is not as well developed as the pure modelling of the ship so far though.

    Next to that there are also smaller vessels like landing pods (block by block ships which you can one-click deploy on planet surfaces as an initial base) and WASD controllable scoutships (mech similar newtonian one seat mini spaceships).

    Content (Rev. 811):
    - Build your ship block by block.
    - A lot of craftable decorative spaceship items like fins and thrusters for all races.
    - Float outside of your spaceship
    - Life support system detecting hull breaches.
    - Deployable landing pods which let you land shuttles (similar to the one in the image below) on planets with a single click. You can later on even scan in your own creations with the Building Scanner and Building Scanner marker in principle allowing you to land your whole spaceship on planets.
    - Scoutships; (mech similar, WASD moveable, newtonian flight skimmers)
    - Mining Pod (mech similar, WASD moveable, mines downwards,slow skimmer)

    Human starter ship example:

    - Performance Patch

    Some people experience performance problems with a large number of life support vents. Those systems are quite CPU heavy due to the bad performance of the underliing runtime interpreted lua language. If you download the mods zip file there is a "madtulip_no_life_support.zip" file inside the main mods zip file. It contains a small patch which disables the life support to increase your systems performance. You can install that patch by extracting the content of the "madtulip_no_life_support.zip" to your mods folder as well. It is just another small "mod" if you want to understand it that way. By installing the no life support performance patch you can deactivate the negative effect/debuff a lack of life support system normaly gives the player. You can then remove all the life support objects from your ship and just play without their negative impact on performance.
    This performance patch can be added or removed at any time without influencing your savegames. You just have to restart starbound. For a multiplayer game however it is required that everyone (server and clients) all use the patch or all do not use the patch.

    - Install
    It is in general a good idea to delete (first backup) your saved characters and ships before installing or updating this mod. (\giraffe_storage\player\*)

    - Install for a preexisting character
    1. Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Starbound\giraffe_storage\player and make a backup of the content
    2. Start the game and move all items and objects you wish to keep from your ship to a planet or your inventory.
    3. Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Starbound\giraffe_storage\player
    4. Locate the file with .shipworld extension and delete it. If there are multiple each of them corresponds to one of your characters. The one that changed last is usualy the one belonging to the character you played last.
    5. Start the game with your character. As its shipworld (the file containing the ship) cant be found a fresh starting one from this mod will be installed.

    - YES
    - All parties (all clients and the server) need to have the exact same files.

    - Race Mods
    If you want to use this mod with custom races i recommend taking a look at this example 3rd party mod which i wrote for the ningen race.:
    The working principle is as follows.: The third party mod is dependend on both this mod and the ningen race mod. Therefor it loads last overwriting all changes done by the one or the other. It then makes the required changes to universe_server.config in order to define the links required for the ningen race to use the human starter ship of this mod.

    As a race mod autor you can use this 3rd party mod as a template and also create a i.e. /ship/ningen folder in that 3rd party mod which could i.e. initialy contain a copy of our humand ship from /ships/human. You can then rename the files and alter them as you would like your races starting ship to look while beeing used with out mod. If you as race mod autor contact us, we will link our race as compatible here.

    Amazing mod. For those of you who have problems with getting S.A.I.L. to recognize that you have rebooted it, first remember do delete the shipworld file so your old ship will be replaced by the mod one (don't forget your fuel!). Then, the Metadata file is the one that is giving you the conflict. Make sure you have copies of all the files, but then delete your metafile from the /player folder (BAK files included). This will instigate a new "game" with your old character. This won't solve the problem however. Then close the game and delete the new metadata files and copy the original files back into the /player folder. For some reason this worked for me! Hope this helps!

    i like the idea but when i installed this to my existing char it was fine until i tryed exploring .... sail went to beginning where u have to reboot it but there is no command to reboot it. also because of that the ftl is offline. i was like " i could just go to my base and put everything i need there and start another character but the ftl is offline. so i used some ain commands (i was on my server because the game doesnt like single player unless i start a new character that wasnt started in multiplayer) anyways i used an admin command to run a mod that gave me my ftl back. but after this i went to my pilot seat and the game froze. then after a few seconds of loading the ship just imploded sending my pet and i with all the ship parts falling down to the planet but to be stoped by an invisable barrier. when i put the ship back together it just crashed the game with no error log or message. this is a great mod but ill wait til i can use it after the fixes. unless i can play a new character without messing up my last one that i reverted to a backup file

    This mod is actually very awesome, and seems to be very useful too, it's a shame it doesn't have the Novakid ship parts, that's the main reason I actually downloaded this mod for, but oh well. Nice mod anyways.

    It's great, but it fails to "depressurize" the ship when you rip a hull block out that would normally cause the vacuums of space to suck all the air out. Not sure why this happens. Also, no... I didn't use the "No life support" patch.

    Great mod, but one... major problem. I think with the .shipworld file gone, S.A.I.L forgot I rebooted it, and now it says i need to reboot. This would be fine, except for one thing... There is no command in the sail hub to reboot the A.I. Please help... I really want this mod to work soooooooooooooooooo bad. It sounds like so much fun.
