Ship pack collection?
Greetings

i have a question im a newbie fredder sometimes when im bored i do basic escort or attack defend missions myself, (i know the basic stuff where to place things and tell them what to do and wayponts like warp out, basically like an arcade shootemup where you attack waves of ships)

but i like to play with a big variety of ships; im asking if there is a big ship/capital ship pack out there? if so someone can pinpoint me out? thanks

because is very time consuming downloading each asset you know wht i mean

Re: Ship pack collection?
You may use some existing modpack as a base. Mods like BtA, BP or Exile have new complex fleets and weapons. Depends on what you actually need in your missions. Still, those were prepared for unique campaigns in mind, so the best way to make a big ship pack is assembling it yourself from community available assets.

Exactly what nyctaeus said it's a bit time consuming but the best way is to create your own mod folder by extracting the assets you like for your personal use

 
Re: Ship pack collection?
ok ill try to do that thanks, or download the mods themselves like shadow genesis which have a lot of modded ships

i like to script missions like this, place the first wave as 3-4 wings wings of fighters, when they are done i tell the script  when the last ship of the last wave is done light capital ships and

support crafts to jump in then the last wave as a boss wave with destroyers and corvettes as support  against my fleet  is a lot of fun its like a shootemup in fps view (or an escort mission to a jump node)

Re: Ship pack collection?
Actually, is there still interest in some sort of ship package? I have almost every ship released by this community (over 600), most including tables. Just asking, cause uploading 2GB+ would take a while.

No further interest here? I thought this could be used as base for the "modular package folders" Axem wrote about on the SCP-board.

I'm not convinced a dump of 600 ships would be worth much, given that most of the data's out there already. What would be valuable is curating it - a "pre-Great War Terrans" pack, a "Vasudan Civilians" pack, etc... though that's obviously a lot more work.

There's got to be a way to do this collaboratively...

Upload it. Even now fsmods is still offline and many ships on wiki had links only for this site. It could be nice to have some sort of backup. :)
