Lucian -> Editor: Possible to add an advanced ship? (6/2/2014 9:44:18 AM)

I'm wondering if its possible to use the editor to add a single ship which is more advanced than any existing race in the current game.

From the editor menu, the only option I can see is to add ships/s from existing races, but I cant figure out how to add a ship which is several tech levels ahead of everyone.

Anyone know if its possible in Universe?

Just to answer my own question, I found a way to do it although it involves jumping through a few hoops. Just in case anyone is interested.

- Go into the editor and advance your empire to whatever Tech Level you want the ship at.
- Close the editor and design the ship exactly as you wish.
- Go back into the editor and place the ship then alter it's ownership to whoever you want.
- Still in the editor change your empire's Tech back to what it was before.
- Exit the editor and now you have a custom designed high tech ship ready to be found.

Cool!

Wouldn't that reset your techs to the specific tech level though? If you had some techs that were further ahead, you'd lose them?

This is only a guess, but might work.

In the editor does it show all your designs or just the currently buildable ones? I m not certain about this, but I think it is the former.

If so, you could start a different game with max tech level, then design the ship.
Save the designs and load them with the orginal game.
You should now be able to place the high tech ship.
Of course you should save your original designs and reload them afterwards.

Yeah that's exactly what it seems to do. But I wanted to set it up at the start of the game, not half way through, so it works ok for what I was after.

Also it looks like its possible to fine tune specific individual techs, so as long as you knew exactly where you were it should be theoretically possible to get back there. A lot of effort though.
