Developers Hull Slot Index

One of the more useful tools I built for building different shiplists was my HULL SLOT list. This list is based on the Hull "index" numbers referenced in PlanMap (under "View" then "Hulls"). This allows me to keep track of what ship has what special ability with Tim's Host as well as some of the more popular addons, such as RacePlus, StarBasePlus, FHost and Nemesis.

This particular list is taken from the working version I keep in an Excel spreadsheet. If anyone would care for the Excel version, drop me a PM.

Oh yeah ...

You'll note that Hull Slots #65 (Topaz) and #88 (Guardian) are marked
*** NOT USED ***.

I discovered when modifying ship names for Federation and
Empire
that the ship names for those two Hull Slots would
NOT change in Winplan or for the Ships utility that comes with
Winplan. For whatever reason, Tim coded Winplan to hardwire
those names into the display for those two ships instead of
reading the names from the HULLSPEC.DAT file.

As a rule of thumb when I'm developing, it is alot easier for me
to type in the hull changes I want - then when finished go to one
or two "dead" slots (that I intentionally did not assign to any race)
and enter arbitrary changes to the data to balance Tim's checksum.

Besides, there are no special ship abilities for these two hull slots
for Tim's Host as well as any addons that I'm aware of.

So ... if I'm using altered ship names, hull slots 65 and 88 are
my primary victims.

Klauser,

Regarding the Opal & Gaurdian,
Is it just the names that are hardcoded into the client?

So that if the slots were needed, they could be whatever weapon
configuration, but would have to be named "Opal" and "Gaurdian"?

Exactly.

So if you're just modifying Tim's list ... ain't a problem.

But if you're doing custom lists, it's irritating!
