Random Feature Request

#1 Post by Bigjoe5 »

I just noticed that when clicking on a finished ship design, there's no way (as far as I can see) to know what hull it uses (aside from the layout of slots, and the hull image, which isn't terribly descriptive). Displaying the name of the hull that the ship design is based on would be nice.
Warning: Antarans in dimensional portal are closer than they appear.

Also, the following lines should probably be added to preunlocked_items.txt:

Code: Select all

Item type = ShipHull name = "SH_COLONY_BASE"
Item type = ShipPart name = "GT_TROOP_POD"

I added text indicating the hull and a list of parts (as clickable links) to ship design encyclopedia pages, including incomplete designs while they're being designed.
