Another topic on ship creation

description missing

Hello everyone.
I wanted to make another version of the federation patrol boat, that i cald "scout vessel" because i wanted a fast ship that could jump far and had light weapons, like... a scout sent in enemy territory to make recon mission and flee.

So... basically, I know all about the shďp ressource and how to handle it. I used picts to make the red scanning thingie, the shipyard pict and the image you get in advanced info window.
I followed what Zacha pedro said in his annoted template of the ship ressource, with the buying desc at 13000+ship ID and the hiring desc at 14000+ship ID and so on... What did I do wrong ?

The problem is, i can't see any description. no description at buying, not at hiring and when I clic on "more info" i get the same info window as the kestrel. (just the stats and no image or whatsoever)

Included a debuglog if needed :

- end of log -

It's "13000 + shďp ID - 128", not "13000 + shďp ID". Same goes for 14000.

is that so ? well, thanks for answering.

Another question. Arpia 1 is out, right ? I believe i can find it in the add-on pages, if I look for it, but what about arpia 2 ? still under dev ?

(sorry, last time i was "active" on this forum it was like... 2/3 years ago...)

ARPIA1 came out a while back. ARPIA2 should (hopefully) be out in a few days when Pipeline gets back from his honeymoon.
