Can I install it, save and quit my current ongoing game, then restart that previously started game with this running? Will my computer blow up and cause an artificial singularity event if I try this?
ADDIT: so I'm guessing if I want this to work right, I need to replicate the subfolders in my "Distant World's Original" Customization folder? and then put the shipnames.txt into a new folder in Customization?
ADDIT*2: yeahhh, that didn't work! Looks like I need to find the little explanation for how to "create custom theme" folders
Sorry for the delayed answer, was unavailable for a few days.
I think you have to start a new game for it to take effect, some stuff is set at the time of galaxy generation, and honestly I've never tried installing it mid game.
Edit, I see you got it to work, glad you did.
