If Possible, Remove the Custom Template Limit. (SOLVED)
« on: August 07, 2017, 08:51:58 PM »
[ You can still paste additional templates even if the boxes are full. I just never thought of doing that :P ]

Hey, I'm just a guy who builds ships and disregards other responsibilities. Anyway, my ships are usually really detailed and require extremely heavy usage of templates in order to drastically speed up my workflow. However, as I've built up my library, I noticed that I was beginning to hit what looked like the template limit, so I decided to fill the spaces up and see if the game would add an extra row.

Unfortunately, after restarting the galaxy, it did not and this was the result:


Which means we can save at most 70 custom templates (5 columns x 14 rows). And after doing some skimming on the forums, no one seems to have brought this up yet. So, as the title says, is it possible to remove the limit on the number of savable custom templates, if not by the developers, perhaps by the modders?

(coding is like Latin to me, I don't know Latin.)

I've not had this issue but I could run into it in the future.
Plus-one-ing this so it hopefully won't be forgotten.

over 70 templates sounds excessive IMO, but i know the level of detail you talk about here nothing bad in a little scrollbar or such, agreed with the former statements, good point, +1'd  :D

way to go until then is keeping "template" ship (could imagine like stickshippish with branches for the templates) nearby with easy-to-grab copys i guess? maybe one could outsource some from the menu like that... its not a beautiful solution ("Latin" can be quite beautiful for such cases it seems, i dont speak it, too, tho ^,.,^) for the issue itself, i know, but something i tend to use quite often, like nothing undoable neither...

So, Koonschi let me know that you could still paste more templates even if all the boxes are full. It never crossed my mind to do that :P

Welp, my mamma did tell me I was special...

It'd be nice if the UI reflected that, but thank goodness!
