Your easy guide all the ships in Escape Velocity: Nova
Hey all, I've started up a similar guide to NTG (Nova Trade Guide) which lists all of the ships in Escape Velocity: Nova, with the help of my friend 'none'. The Nova Ship Guide (commonly abbreivated NSG) is a detailed guide to every single ship in the game and lists these ships in an easy to read, yet detailed format.
The account for each ship will contain the following criteria (in this order)..
Pretty straightforward concept
Here I will post an image (taken from the shipyard resource files) of the particular ship in order to help the reader identify ships from others, and be able to locate and purchase/hire/capture one him/herself.
Basically copy and pasting everything in the ships 'shďp' resource for your viewing:
The first paragraph will be a personal description of the ship through my experience of the game, it's good points, the bad, costs, what it's good at, where you'll find them, elaboration of variant notes etc.
The second will be the official shipyard descirption, so readers can get an even better idea about the history of the ship and the words of the game itself (which however, are sometimes misleading, but true all in the same).
Shortlist of good things.
Shortlist of bad things.
This should be about it for each ship, and as well as accounts on every ship in the game, as with NTG, the sub-forums that NSG comprises of are restricted only to replying to topics. You won't be able to create topics, but you will be able to comment on each ship account etc.
I have opened up, like with NTG, a 'Requests, Support and General Discussion' sub-forum where you can request new features for the guide, new ships I might have missed out, seek support on how to use the guide if you're confused, and the place to discuss your favourite ships or whatever you might want.
Please note that these are only preliminary plans as to how the guide will look, so please mention here any features you'd like to see in NSG before I start proper work on it.
This is what I've progressed with so far today:
- Created forum with sub-forums
- Added following ships to Federation section:
Federation Scout Ship
Federation Patrol Boat
Federation RAGE Gunboat
