In a case like this, a debug log is probably the first thing to try.
The most common cause for loading errors, however, is when one resource refers to another which doesn’t actually exist (particularly if the latter is meant to be a graphic). If you were combining elements from different plug-ins, it may be that one of the resources you copied is dependent on something else which you didn’t include.
Yep, looks like that's what it was. Target images. Been a long time since I've done any of this, but I got it cleared up.
Now I have a new problem: I shamelessly grabbed the ships from Acheron and copied them over into a plug for Nova. Reworked stats, outfits, weapons... all kinds of stuff so that everything related to ships fits in nicely with Nova. Everything works fine.
Except: I cannot buy any standard Nova outfits (except for the marines to board enemy ships, oddly) on any ship from my plug-in. I can't find any ncbs set wierdly, or anything in the ships or the outfits that immediately screams, "Prohibit purchase of standard outfits" to me.
Tips? Anybody familiar with this problem? If somebody can point me even towards what general resources I should be looking at, that'd be helpful.
