Note: The current version of this mod isn't compatible with Advanced Edition

Stay tuned for an update that should fix whatever issues you may have come across


And if you're curious as to why this has been on hiatus for so long, take a look at my other project Super Galaxy Squadron. Since it's something I'm doing solo, it naturally takes up a lot of my time

________________________________________

FTL Remastered sets out to give the (previously untapped) visual potential of FTL the pixeled love it deserves, remaking every art asset in the game to be more functional, better looking, or occasionally both.
As you might expect, doing pixel art for free on the internet isn't exactly a sustainable lifestyle. Being a human, I need certain things like food and sleep, and working full-time hours on a tiny mod for a year old indie game, when paired with working for a college degree and trying to survive, isn't terribly high on my list of priorities. If you like this mod and want it to be completed, consider donating so I can justify spending this kind of time. I'd like to, but I also kind of like being able to eat and pay bills and all that business.
PROGRESS: I don't even know/1876

CURRENT:

[12/28] - Most map things complete, still need backgrounds/nebulae
-First form of rebel flagship complete
-Various improvements to UI/weapons

FTL Remastered 0.1.7

OLD:

[12/24] - High contrast UI (except for most menus), better main menu, better warning messages, better asteroids, except for two of the three backgrounds, four frames of male humans done (click on one while they're facing down to see the change) [12/21] - Crystal and boss weapons complete (except for lockdown bombs but I don't know if those are actually programmed in), boarding drones partially complete, partially screwed up, stand by on that, various UI changes
[9/29] - Kestrel is finally in, along with higher contrast health bars and updated doors
[9/24] - All flying drones are done, still have boarding and system repair ones to go but those'll probably be done along with other character sprites
[9/22] - Finished beams and bombs
[9/21] - Weapons are nearly done, only the bombs, a couple beams, and special weapons like for bosses and Crystal ships are left to go

I wasn't really expecting it but this has a decent amount of watchers, so I figured now that it's December (holy shit time flies) I should probably let people know of the status of this mod since there hasn't been an update since September. Keeping this simple-

-I'm super busy with college right now
-I'm also super busy with an actual pixel art job, which I need to pay off student loans and feed myself
-I still want to finish this mod

The semester is ending in a week, if things are chill enough with the job after that then I might have an actual amount of time to spend on this. I knew it would be a marathon to the end but it looks like it might be worse than I expected now that I have actual work I'm committed to. If you're looking forward to the complete mod I won't tell you to stop, but you'll probably have to be really patient. At the very least I'll try to have a decent update out by the time the spring semester starts. And thanks to everyone who's used the mod/given feedback/whatever, that's probably the biggest motivation to keep it going.

For the first "official release", everything that's already up here plus the Kestrel and a few other small things. This should help give you an idea of...

FTL Remastered: Weapons + Drones 0.1

FTL Remastered: Weapons + Drones 0.1

Sprites

For the drone players out there, now they'll fit and all that. Boarding and system repair drones coming eventually.

FTL Remastered: Weapons 0.2

Now with even more weapons. Still no crystal or boss ones, though.

So... Is this mod still going to be updated since the Advanced Edition issue with the canvas size or has it died? If it has died, would you consider giving the mod project to somebody else to continue?

For reference, if you don't have the Advanced Edition, pretty much the textures go all screwy because they used a different canvas size this time around. If you disable the "advanced features" it really doesn't do much in the way of helping since it is the Advanced Edition release.

Long story short I hope someone is supporting this mod.

Wow looks very nice, Are you still working on this? If so, do you plan on making any of these for Flagship randomizer, or perhaps captain's edition? The reason why I ask is because I love this retexture it looks exceptional, but because it looks so good, it does not fit in with the rest of the game(Captains edition/Flagship Randomizer.

Just know that we love your work, and understand that college comes first :)

Have you considered allowing donations?
If this were an official DLC I'd be all over it, I don't see why you would not be deserving of donations for this amazing work, which improves the base product by such a huge margin.

Hang in there!

I actually do have a Paypal open for donations but the link to it accidentally got edited out the description, just fixed that. Thanks for the support, I'm hoping I can get back to it soon once everything else clears up.

Bookmarked and will be watching for Advanced and possibly Captain's Edition support in the future.

Just a heads up to say the mod doesn't work correctly with Advanced Edition. The issue seems to be that the expansion is using different canvas sizes for sprites and the rooms no longer line-up correctly. I tried resizing the Kestrel base and that seems to have fixed it, but it looks like most of the sprites will need editing.

If you don't mind others playing around with your sprites it would be a simple, but tedious job for me to compare everything and resize it to work with the expansion.

Thanks for creating such an amazing mod and hopefully you can have a go at redoing some of the new stuff from the expansion.

uuuuuuuggggggghhhhhh...

I'm finally starting to have some free time opening up so I figured I'd get back to this mod, and now my motivation just flung itself out the window and in front of a train. Better get it out of the way early though, I guess.

Hope you don't give up, it looks completely fantastic! Even if you do stop working on this mod, I'll be watching out for any future work from you, because man you did a really good job.
