I've done it so that I can use a ship costume as a dialogue contact in a regular story dialogue.

You can place them on the map and it works in preview. He talked about it on the podcast, but then between when we recorded it and when I got time to edit it, he discovered it won't let you publish, so I had to edit that part out.

Now, assuming it doesn't crash all the time, it could still work as a way to put ships in the dialogue window since you don't have to place those on the map. Mark says it works ^^^

I think there are two diffierent ways, one which results in "resource not found" or "costume must be map specific." and the other that does not.

First way involves swapping the map, like you set up a talk to contact, pick a space ship, then delete the map, and try to use the one from the previous space map.

The import button lets you do this:

The npcs run around in space firing photons from their... waists.

Kind of stuck in the ground.

There are no errors in my log preventing publishing. It gives a publishing error?

That's what Greendragoon said. Said it flagged it as "resource not available" or something. Maybe you did it differently?

Maybe I'll try publishing a quick test tonight.

The trick may be using a ground character, then recostuming it with the custom space costume that was imported.

I made a tutorial-ish thing... I'll post a link when DA quits acting screwy...

but I've never seen any errors with the method I've been using.

but yeah it's like Kirk said.
