I'm guessing the race's image file(s) is not valid. Unsupported format maybe?

Or in the wrong place so it didn't get read. Do you have a debug mode or a verbose log file setting available in the mod tools? That might help track it down.

I've found what it was , result is pretty simple,
while game modding dont support more than 50 races, it also does not support more than 50 shipsets, but that not mentioned in any place, including modding guide documentation.
The race had reference to shipset with index 50.
Devs, please expand this hard limit, and add this to documentation.

Nice pick up Blackstork.

Another feature undocumented in the Modding Guide, which took me a loooong time to find, was associated with Troop Transports. Normally when playing manually I design them without any Weapons and the game allows them to be built no problem. But in the Design Templates, a token Weapon is required, otherwise the AI will not build them at all.

Are there any other undocumented features noted by other Modders that could also be captured?
