There are no ships available when I start a new game. Forcing me to design new ones from the beginning.

According to type of issue, it is most likely that an error has occured during the installation/patching of Star Ruler. Try reinstalling the game and mod to see if that helps.

Please note that this release is not compatible with the latest versions of Star Ruler. Galactic Armory 1.7.1 for SR 1080 will be released shortly.

I thought I had, but thanks to Impulse, it auto-upgraded to while I wasn't near my computer to see it happen. Thank Gamestop for that stupid service.
