    I'm working on human custom ship, but i have a strange problem:

    I can use my own ship, T8 version, (build with ship.structure, blocks.png, normal.png and normallit.png) with my current character, but if try to use it on a new character, it shows the blocks and freeze.

    - if i delete the shipworld from my current character, the game freeze too.
    - Same if i change it to T5 and update from T0 to T5 with a new character.
    - same problem if i delete the shipworld file and let the game create a new one

    I tried a few things, checked the blocks etc.. but i still have no clue. The strangest thing in this problem is that the ship is fine with my current character..

    I know the blocks.png should be 1:8 ratio of the ship overlay, but is there any more conditions? size of the file, maximum resolution? Or maybe the blocks.png should be the same size/resolution for each tier?

    If anybody is familiar with this problem, you're help is welcome!

    Nevermind, found the solution.
    Looks like the techstation can't be moved to another blocks easily ^^

    You have to consider the size of the object(which is more than 1x1 tile larger) and the offset. A [0, 0] offset will place the bottom left of the object at that very tile.
