These things:

There a chance we can get a bit of a cheeky model edit to make them a bit smaller? I love the design, but they just seem a little...hulkingly enormous. Maybe like a size that stops about here: https://i.imgur.com/mG4qvom.png

 

I'd attempt this myself, but honestly? I can't figure out the mod tools for model editing in no man's sky.

If someone could walk me through the process, I'd also be happy.

Hi mauskal

 

Personally you'd be better off getting a new ship as the editing of the wings will be an absolute nightmare if you've never done this before.

 

Here's a small example of what you'd be dealing with:

 

<Property name="Children">
                <Property value="TkSceneNodeData.xml">
                  <Property name="Name" value="_SubWings_A27" />
                  <Property name="Type" value="REFERENCE" />
                  <Property name="Transform" value="TkTransformData.xml">
                    <Property name="TransX" value="0.69637" />
                    <Property name="TransY" value="-0.17102" />
                    <Property name="TransZ" value="-5.07998" />
                    <Property name="RotX" value="0" />
                    <Property name="RotY" value="0" />
                    <Property name="RotZ" value="0" />
                    <Property name="ScaleX" value="1" />
                    <Property name="ScaleY" value="1" />
                    <Property name="ScaleZ" value="1" />
                  </Property>
                  <Property name="Attributes">
                    <Property value="TkSceneNodeAttributeData.xml">
                      <Property name="Name" value="SCENEGRAPH" />
                      <Property name="AltID" value="" />
                      <Property name="Value" value="MODELS\COMMON\SPACECRAFT\DROPSHIPS\SUBWINGS\SUBWINGSA\SUBWINGSA_LEFT.SCENE.MBIN" />
                    </Property>
                  </Property>
                  <Property name="Children">
                    <Property value="TkSceneNodeData.xml">
                      <Property name="Name" value="SubWingsA_Right27" />
                      <Property name="Type" value="REFERENCE" />
                      <Property name="Transform" value="TkTransformData.xml">
                        <Property name="TransX" value="-1.39274" />
                        <Property name="TransY" value="0" />
                        <Property name="TransZ" value="0" />
                        <Property name="RotX" value="0" />
                        <Property name="RotY" value="0" />
                        <Property name="RotZ" value="0" />
                        <Property name="ScaleX" value="1" />
                        <Property name="ScaleY" value="1" />
                        <Property name="ScaleZ" value="1" />
                      </Property>
                      <Property name="Attributes">
                        <Property value="TkSceneNodeAttributeData.xml">
                          <Property name="Name" value="SCENEGRAPH" />
                          <Property name="AltID" value="" />
                          <Property name="Value" value="MODELS\COMMON\SPACECRAFT\DROPSHIPS\SUBWINGS\SUBWINGSA\SUBWINGSA_RIGHT.SCENE.MBIN" />
                        </Property>

And there's over 5000 lines of code in the dropship file, i'm not trying to put you off but if it's just the wings then pick another ship. Trust me it's not worth editing just for the wings when you can pick a similar ship.

 

Regards,

 

Myself.  :happy:

I appreciate the warning. That does seem rather extreme. Although I think even with the large wings considered, I still think it is my favorite wing variant. I just would have liked to see them smaller.

Yeah great that HG's has made the ships bigger but they didn't make the Space Stations bigger. Have you seen the size of those ships when they land near the walkways? Those wings just merge into the structure and modders like JJHookah has to fix or come up with a mod that fixes the oversight made by HG's, one of many I may add!

Myself  :ermm:  :happy:

oh yeah, I've personally noticed my ship's wings clipping into the platforms on either side of the station. That's another thing I imagine would be nice about having smaller wings, besides it just looking cooler

 

edit: I've been thinking about it, and I think i might be bored enough to want to try and take a look through the code. What file am I looking for to alter sizes of the wings?
