For some reason I can't explain, in my mod my items images won't show up(but the station image does). my code is the following:

name=         The name of the item.
level=         Tech level of the item. For armour, this influences resistance to damage types, repair cost, and when in the game it appears.
value=         Value, in credits.
mass=         Mass, in kg (1000= 1 tonne)
frequency=      Rate at which it appears in randomly generated tables. You may use: "veryrare", "rare", "uncommon", "common", and "notRandom".
numberAppearing=Number of segments that appear at a time in randomly generated tables. "1d4" is most common as most ships use 4 segments.
attributes=      Use this to define manufacturer tags and other attributes, separated by commas. Armor is usually tagged with "minoritem."

description=   self explanatory

<Armor> tag:

hitPoints=   Number of hit points on the armour.
hpBonus=   Damage resistance, as an integer value from the standard for the tech level, separated by commas.
         Order of appearance: "Laser, Kinetic, Particle, Blast, Ion, Thermo, Positron, Plasma, and so on" 

   Inherent damage resistances:
      level VI+ is blind immune
      level VII+ is radiation immune
      level IX+ is EMP immune
      level XI+ is device damage immune
   
      
         
Other things you can put in this chunk:

radiationImmune=   Can be set to "true" or "false". Armour segments above tech level 6 are inherently radiation immune, so this needs to be set to "false" if you don't want immunity above level 7 (like ceralloy).
blindingDamageAdj=   Define a value here to set the armour's resistance to blinding attacks. Set to "0" to make immune.
EMPDamageAdj=      Same as above, but for EMP attacks.
deviceDamageAdj=   Same as above, but for device disruption.
disintegrationImmune= Can be set to "true" or "false". Only practical against the Iocrym command ship right now.

repairTech=         Tech level that the armour can be repaired at. Stations and repair devices have set armour repair levels, so this can be used to limit the armour's practicality.

installCostAdj=      A cost adjustment for installing the armour, as a percentage of the cost for armours of the same level.

regen=            Include a value here to have the armour repair itself over time. For example, Duralloy has regen="1" and photo-organic armour has regen="2".
photoRepair=      Set to "true" to have the armour repair itself when exposed to sunlight. You also must define a regen value for this to work.
powerUse=         Include a value here to have the armour segment draw power from the ship's reactor.
photoRecharge=      Include a value here to have the armour segment recharge the ship's reactor when exposed to sunlight.
decay=            Define a value here to have the armour slowly decay over time. Transuranic armour uses "0.75", for reference.

stealth=         Define a value here to make the ship harder to pick up on the LRS/SRS. NPCs seem to ignore this when attacking the player, however.

completeBonus=      An HP bonus to all armour segments if all armour segments are the same.


deviceHPBonus=      Include a percentage value here, along with a deviceCriteria (below), to have a bonus to shield HP when installed.
deviceCriteria=      Define as "s" along with a deviceHPbonus (above) value.

Here's where you can define what the device does.

****Select only one of MiscellaneousDevice, ReactorDevice, or DriveDevice and delete the other chunks.****

<MiscellaneousDevice>

Optional:

<EnhancementAbilities> (ripped from http://wiki.kronosaur.com/modding/xml/api_version?s[]=criteria)
   This defines an item enhancement device.
   
    type: This is a user-defined string representing the type of enhancement. Only a single enhancement of each type will be applied.
    criteria: This is an item criteria specifying the set of devices that will be enhanced by this device.
         [So, if you want an item that enhances your corporation's items, use:
         
         criteria=      "w~l +YourCorporation;"
         
    enhancement: This defines the enhancement applied to the set of devices that match the criteria. This is expressed as an enhancement code (see shpEnhanceItem) or as one of the following special codes:
        “+hpBonus:{n};” where {n} is the percent bonus.
        “+shield:{n};” where {n} is a level. This is equivalent to the shield:{n} damage modifier.
        “+speed:{n};” where {n} is the percent value of the new weapon delay time relative to the current one. E.g., 75 = 75% of the original delay time.

For the Death Launcher (cool name) you have the x and y coordinates on the image swapped around.
This is what you have:

Code: Select all

<Image imageID="&rsItems1;" imageX="480" imageY="0" imageWidth="96" imageHeight="96"/>
The code is working, it's just showing you a blank image of nothing that is way off the side of the source image.

Whereas this is what works for the launcher image:

Code: Select all

<Image imageID="&rsItems1;" imageX="0" imageY="480" imageWidth="96" imageHeight="96"/>
==========================
The armor doesn't have the <Image..../> line of code yet so it can't show you anything. Every <ItemType> needs this info to give you an image.

I've run out of time. If you have any more trouble ask again.
If needed I'll do a quick tutorial post about images for you.

Nice catch! I'm curious how you did it. Did you have to pull up the images out of the Resources folder, did you compare the code to vanilla devices with code that works, or have you done this so many times that you have the code basically memorized?

:lol: :lol:
Would you believe it's because of my incredible physical prowess, magnificent intellect and charming way with the ladies...No? OK, that would be a lie anyway.:lol:
The embarrassing truth is I've done this before myself :oops: . Plus I was working on turret images at the time so it was all fresh in my mind. And it still confuses me. The x and y stuff seems backwards when you say it compared to what happens and I still mess it up sometimes.

I ran the mod. Mostly working except for a few images. When I saw the launcher image wasn't coming up I checked the code.The code looked right (and wasn't giving any errors) so I had a look at the image 'Items1.jpg' (got this from CorePlaceholders.xml where &rsItems1; is defined) in the Resources folder. Saw that the launcher image was there, then worked out why it wasn't coming up. From my previous mess-ups the first thing I tried was changing the co-ordinates. Abracadabra, it worked.

I had noticed the armor image wasn't showing either so checked the code. There wasn't a line of image code yet so I knew that was the problem.

I ended up doing the tutorial post I mentioned anyway. But I haven't got the dockscreen section done yet.
