Unexpected Crashing

What did I do wrong this time?

Alright, in the development of the wraith plugin, I managed to break my nova. I can run it without the plugin in the folder, but not with. Nova will load until it is about to leave the loading screen, then just quit. Not even an unexpected quit message. The thing is, I can't figure out what, for the life of me, I did that was out of the ordinary.

The other thing is this part:
warning: mission 1105 makes reference to nonexistent düde resource 298
warning: mission 1110 makes reference to nonexistent düde resource 302
As far as I can tell, there is no mission #1105 or 1110. I certainly didn't add any. I've only gone up to 929.

Any ideas? Not being able to test the things that I've added is really dragging down production times. 😛

Trashed your last pilot?

I'll give it a shot...
EDIT: Trashing pilots (all of them) works so that nova can open, but then as soon as I make a new pilot, it crashes. Trying to re-open after this, without trashing the newly made pilot restarts the cycle.

What size are the resource files?

I'm guessing something wrong with the ship or the system that you start in, leaning towards the latter. Try starting in a different system. If it still crashes, try removing all other ships in the system. If it still crashes it's probably your ship.

...the nova files, or the plugins? Which files, specifically, do you want to know the size of?

I don't think so, guy. Doesn't matter if I start on the wraith home system or sol, it still experiences the same behavior. I'll check the other options.

EDIT: My ability to make stupid, oversightful mistakes never ceases to amaze me. When I duplicated the wraith shďps, to make the 'player' versions, I forgot to likewise duplicate the shäns. Problem solved. Thank you for all helpful suggestions put forward.
