Included in The Ship SDK are map compilation tools, VMEX (modified), The Ship's FGD, and Deckplanner. Download the The Ship SDK here. The Ship SDK utilizes the Source SDK, which is packaged along with Valve's major Source games. Visit this page to see a complete list of Source games that include the Source SDK. Purchase Half-Life 2: Deathmatch for only $9.95 to get full access to the Source SDK.

To run the deckplan script generator, you must have Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 installed.

Warning: The Ship SDK does not work with the latest version of the Source SDK; the developer of The Ship SDK does not intend to fix the problems.

			}
		}

Usage

  • You must run "..\Steam\SteamApps\<username>\sourcesdk\ship\launchsdk.bat" to launch the SDK once after each time of launching The Ship. You may run the batch file with a shortcut if you are so inclined.}}
  • It is recommended that you first decompile a few maps in "..\Steam\SteamApps\the ship common.gcf" so you get a sense of how to construct the map's gameplay & functionality. See GCFScape for BSP extraction.
  • You may run into an issue where The Ship never appears on the Source SDK configuration list. To fix this, you should open your modified GameConfig.txt in notepad before launching the SDK, resave it if it doesn't appear in the list, and switch to a different configuration to reload the GameConfig.txt file.
  • All tools are located in ..\sourcesdk\ship
