New @Space Engineers: Principal-class Armed Freighter

Another remake of an old XWA Release: This ship is an armed Freighter of roughly 150m length. Sluggish but sturdy it is used by corporate security forces to haul sizable freight of value and/or to escort freight convoys across unsafe territory. As such, it carries a number of defensive gatling turre...

Re: Reopening: Vince-T's Modding HQ

Only problem I see here is illumination. As of now, AFAIK a texture can only have either illumination or transparrency. So, by making the floor transparrent, you‘d sacrifice the numerous floor lights OR have to make the lights actual meshes. Then there‘s the issue of the various craft. While the sta...

However, IRL matters threw me a bit off-schedule so I'll have to deliver that at a later point. Won't be long now, promise! :D So, about the...

Re: How to install / why are the packages not described?

I do not believe anyone without basic programming knowledge understood that. In short: Hooks are basically small patches that allow functions or fixes to be included into the game program. @kkane2828 I shall leave it up to you to discover this new source of knowledge since it is already visible and ...

Maybe after the project is over (...), the XWAU team(...) can get to work organizing everything related to the X-Wing series games and transform this site into the center of the X-Wing series game community.

Re: TIE Shuttle's true form

I‘d say because he simply wanted to travel from one destroyer to another. With the imperial fleet being in no immediate danger that kinda seems like a sound decision to me. Also, him being a ‚mere‘ captain, who in addition was going to confess a screwup, taking a Lambda Shuttle would be somewhat out...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Had a few typos though, meant „communicate“ not community. In that sense, the aforementioned failure is mine as well.
