    I loooove this mod, I can finally build without all that nasty stuff on the ship. I also love how the engines have unique descriptions and (strangely) collision. It's weird that the object have unique icons. I have to say, the hylotl fuel station has the most weirdest item sprite ever, it's not even close to the other races. Anyway, I have noticed a few problems I see with the mod in my experience and my workarounds:


    ___________________________________
    The graphics of the previous ship will remain, but non-solid:
    -This is a visual artifact of the .shipworld, but simply deleting the shipworlds associated with that character loads it up fine (as long as you put your stuff away beforehand!), when this happens, most blocks and stuff from that world "merges" with the newly generated shipworld.


    The locker cannot be removed:
    -Same as above. Delete file, and blah blah


    You fall and die at the bottom of the shipworld:
    -Ugh, I hate this. Never really like how the bottom isnt solid, a simple fix for that would be to program the last 2 bottom rows to be solid (2 layers since only 1 layer just makes it a instant death plane.) The biggest pain is the crew, it works fine, until they fall off.....then they just sit on the bottom of the map never moving, unless they're following you, then the tp mechanic kicks in. Only fix I know of is to get close to them and tell 'em to follow you and them move them away. Or you know, kick 'em off the ship. Or if your character is on casual/easy mode, jump and time your activate key and talk to the crew as you fall out of the world.
    ____________________________________


    Crashes:
    Never place more than 1 SAIL console at a time, especially if it's the same race, or you get
    disconnected from the map.




    EDIT:
    If a friend without the mod comes to my custom ship, will it be perfectly fine?

    (Sheesh, this forum really hates scaling multiple sized fonts, it even scaled the wrong word! I didn't make "disconnected" big, it that on it's own instead of "crashes")

    unfortunatly, the very first time your ship gets loaded (without my mod installed), it sets an irremovable flag on the shiplocker, to make it persistant. the way to fix it is to install the mod, delete your shipworld and start the game. make sure you emptied it out first.

    This is not something thats fixable, without the base code being changed (which only chucklefish can)

    yes, other people dont have to have the mod installed to visit the ship! it uses only vanilla resources, so it works without it. they wont be able to do the quest though.

    After I upgraded my ship with the quest and beaming up, the character gets stuck on an infinite loading screen, tried restarting and reloading and the same happens everytime, I am aware that this error was supposedly "fixed" in an update, but for me it still loads infinitely. I don't know what to do.

    Hello, just want to give some feedback on an issue I've been having. I had recently got this in frackin to play some modded starbound with pals and new characters. they didn't decide to BYOS (their loss ;)), but I did. when I got the FTL drive and the thrusters on my ship it still had navigation offline. Which I was playing with a nova-kid, so it should work, so I made another guy who was human and hurried to test him...Same problem. I checked yes it is latest version, I have no other ship mods(maybe frackin), and I really haven't done much to my ship, I'll embed some pictures of my ship that is everything I have on it.
    Two more things.
    1. how do I rotate the thrusters to fit on the walls? I can only get them to stick to the bottom or top.
    2. is there a large thruster? that might be what I'm missing, because all I see is small

    Funny thing, i thing i have to update then, the feline byos still have the lsyer problemas "of you byos your ship before complthing the ship quest line (thats it visithing the hideous mask guy before doing the upgrades) you can byos it, and edit it fine, but if you happen to upgrade it, the ship background layer (the wires and equipment) will be there althouugh the ship will still be able to be edited."

    Trying to get this to work with an existing character with a ship that's already maxed out build wise. I deleted my shipworld file and started game without mod but it somehow loads the maxed out ship again this time with all the blocks that block the door ways. I don't want to start a new character, put to much time into it.

    doubledeathrainbow Scruffy Nerf-Herder

    Uhg, did you try initiating the "quest" that starts the mod itself?, if im right, you do that by going all the way under the outpost, where the guy with the mask is (insidiousmask)

    Is it possible to... Export a ship you made with BYOS? the reason I ask is because I am currently making a race mod that would look better using a custom ship.
    I am not very good at editing image and text files.
