=====================
Program: Ship Manager - Creator & Installer
Version: 1.91
Author: Cycrow
=====================
Arrow Main Site: www.xpluginmanager.co.uk
Arrow Direct Download: Here
=====================

This is a program to allow easy installing of custom ships.
The ship creator is used to create the ship files and import data from existing mods. The creator imports the ships data from the various files created by the X3 Editor, TShips, Dummies, Components and TCockpits.

Idea You will find help and various guides available from the Main Plugin manager site Here
Idea Any problems with installing ships, please post here: http://forum2.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=156359

For more details, please view the main pluginmanager site

The installer can merge multple ships into a single mod and add them onto an existing mod. The program is capable of merging the Tships, Dummies, Components and TCockpits file. The program will also automatically select the newly created mod as the main one to load.

The scripts package that is included with load the created text file, and contains a script to get the id for each ship based on a text id.
Code:

 $shiptype = call script 'plugin.shipcreator.getship' ID = 'SHIP_ID'
 $newShip = create ship $shiptype ....

This will mean that scripts can gain access to these ships no matter what position in TShips there are.

Great Thumb up. One question though, once the ships are in the game, how do we get to them? Are they placed in a shipyard of the designers choice, or do we have to script them in.
Thanks

just tried it out. It created a new mod with probably the actualizised tships in there, but couldnt find the ship files in the mod. Where have the data to be to create a ship? Where have the bod files to be. Does the program read the path from the tships line and for parts out of the **_scene.bod?
I actually couldnt bring the ship into the game yet.
Guess i have to wait for a readme.

to add the model files you have to goto the "scene" tab and the "other models tab"

the scene tab is to add in the main scene files for the ship and the cockpit, just click on the button on the right to select the file, or drag and drop the file into the edit box.

for any other model files add them into the other models, either by drag and drop into the list, or right click and goto add model.

i am going to make a wizard to import all the models and settings directly for the cat/dat files, but for now you have to do it manually

any other ideas and suggestions are welcome, especially ways you think that might make it easier to use

Okay, so this is the coolest idea ever! Cool

problem is...how do you get the ships from the creator program to the install program where one can add them to existing mods?

Sorry for being clueless. Embarassed

ok, simply, there is 2 programs.
The creator is used to create the ship itself, by importing data from the mod files to create a single ship. This then saves all the data and models needed into a xsp. Each xsp file is for a single ship.

Then you use the installer to installed them. First set the correct directory for X3, when first loading it will attempt to find where X3 is installed from the registry. The base mod selection is all the mod files that are found in the mods directory for X3. Select which one you can as the base mod, then the installer will join ships onto this mod and merge the 2 into a new mod.

to install any ships, you can either, double click the xsp file in explorer to laod it into the installer, drag and drop the file into the installed ship list, or goto the install button and select the file. When you close the program, the new mod will be created and selected ready for use
