Whenever I try to add boxes to my ship it add blue boxes so huge that they cover the entire SSD! Any clue what's wrong?

The problem is the edge detection for the FC Online Ship Def Tool. Try using Overlay Mode.

Yea, I already got it working. It won't let me upload the darn thing though.

Nothing. I go to the library, hit upload def and then I upload it and wait, for the few seconds it takes, to finish uploading. After it said it was done I create a game and went to add a unit as normal, but the ship wasn't in the library. I checked both squadron and fleet scales under both the user defined category and under the Klingon category. I looked several times and tried uploading several times and every time I find nothing. Confused

Uh, that is because uploading it to the library does not add it immediately to the library. It is a submission to have it added to the library.

I still need to add the idead of local libraries so that you can do what you want.

So it has to be approved or something?

Yup. New Defs also have to meet the 3 month T/F laid out by SVC. So, if the def you submitted was, say, the D5D from Briefing #1, the earliest it could show up is May.

I still wish for a return of the old Text based def tool that was a part of SFBOL 2x. It'd make using new ships a lot easier as all you'd have to do is input the amount of boxes and what type the boxes are. Granted, it might take a bit of a work-around due to the way the client uses Defs for combat and systems, but working around things is something we FCOL players are getting used to... Smile

Too true my friend. We're MUCH more resourceful and capable than we're given credit for.
