Hi all,

I am looking for a ship set which was posted a while back on these forums similar in style to the ones found in the following link. To be fair it is not much to go by, but does anyone recall a similar ship set for DW.

Edit- Unfortunately being new to the forums I cannot post links so I have uploaded a pic instead

Cheers :)

There is a compendium of mods here:

Hmmm perhaps it was the ship set you linked (those ships look great btw), I've had a look through the compendium and the past 16 pages of the modding thread so I think it is safe to say that the ships I was thinking of are either the ones posted in your link or I am getting confused with another games ship sets.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated :)

You might be thinking of the old GSB shipset that got taken down.

Hmmm perhaps, I'm starting to think its a lost cause lol. However I did stumble upon some amazing ship sprites from a game called Starsector (attachment posted above). I know nothing about modding but perhaps it will be possible to convert these ships into DW (with permission from the original authors). Well, off to the modding manual

The ship above does look like something I've seen from a starsector mod.. it even looks like it has the empty circle bits to install the weapons on..

if it is from that game its fairly easy to convert the ships over since they also use PNG image files.. Just add the bit for engine trails in PS and your good to go.

I'm new too... only found the game about a week back and studying the modding manual too. :)

Hey Rankalee, yep you are correct, the ship is from a Starsector mod. I was playing around last night and managed to import the ship into the game. The main problem is that the ship becomes a bit blurry when it rotates because the pixel dimensions are not identical to form a square. So I need to play around with adjusting the dimensions. I would also like to make the ships larger so you can see a bit more detail in game.

Have you played starsector? I am considering buying it. There seems to be some great ideas in there but it looks a little too arcade-like for me.

Happy modding :)

Yeah I own starsector.

It's a fun game but it's quite a different monster compared to Distant Worlds. Others say its basically a mount and blade game but in space...

IMO Starsector is more focused on the ship combat which is probably the best thing about the game.

Unfortunately though the other parts of the game are really lacking...only 1 star system etc.. but apparently updates are coming with more stuff but it's all just going too slowly for me to wait around... I'm sure it will be a great game in a few years from now though...

If you want it though its only 10 bucks lol.. I think you would easily get your moneys worth just from the combat system alone and the couple of fun mods that are out...

Just don't expect something as epic feeling as DW though. :)
