Ok, I'm getting into modding or at least understanding the workings of DW. Fun game so far, btw. :)

I see there is a races folder which contains the 22 race's .txt files. In this file, among other things it tells the race which random ship design names(designs.txt) to use , which family ship graphics (familyxx folders), etc...

What are family folders family22-family26 used for, or are those just extras for the player to use if they wanted?

Also I noticed the Design names are all very "human" in style, I was curious why some of the non-humans aren't more "alien" in style?

I also noticed the shipNames.txt, I believe if you fill this in it will only work for your own race and not the NPC races. My question is where do the ship names come from for the NPCs and your own ships if you don't fill them in?

Thanks.
