I can confirm what a lot of people are already saying in other places, theres a new value that was uncovered in goatfungus' save editor called the "home seed". That seed seems to influence the color of the freighter/frigate in question while the seeds we normally get on the NMSeeds website only influence the model now. I started looking into it because i was wondering why a ship that was supposed to be black and white was instead olive and orange so after messing with the home seed a bit its now black and blue. the seed tool needs an update as well as the site to share color seeds along side model seeds

Sorry for the quote tag, i just thought this was the easiest way to make shure you read this. youre it! :P

i've included a script to do the actual "generating" of seeds and take screenshots with name of seed as name of relevant item

if anyone has improvements please do a pull request

There are at least 3 tie fighters ive found so far

Cool saw some awesome designs..... But nothing I liked enough to use!!! My current ship, Vanguard-5, is one of those Venator designs, with 6 Cargo Pod sections, so accoording to the wiki, that's a Resurgence-Class, Vanguard-5 also has an underbelly thruster, (you know, that large curved engine block that hangs down from the bottom of certain Freighters that has extra thrusters on it), as well as a over-hull thruster, (you know, that really big engine block that generates on certain Freighters over the hull, instead of under it, that looks like the underbelly one, but a bit shorter in length, and a little shorter). It's also got a green central stripe and Cargo Pod caps, with a black hull. Basically green on black. I was really hoping to find one in your deposit that was identical to Vanguard-5, but Red on Black instead of Green on Black. You can see my Freighter, Vanguard-5, in my screenshot library, (I'm still trying to learn how to post screenshots to these posts, sorry), so, if you think you can, maybe try to find a Red on Black Vanguard-5 so I can replace my Green on Black version. I will give you the seed for the original Vanguard-5 in exchange. If you really want to see what I mean, try going to the HUB4-214 Harmonius Sanctum page on the No Man's Sky wiki, (it's in the Eissentam HUB section), and maybe you could try..... Please? Thanks! Rockatoa, Brickticks out! P.S. GOOD JOB WITH ALL THOSE SEEDS!!!!!

what i've noticed is that there is alot of repeats in the final product so eventually someone will generate your ship/freighter with my script. and then it will be in the git repo.

alternatively you could run it and then do a pull request yourself.

also i'm not sure what you are asking in the last sentence... you want me to manually visit a system and take a picture? That isn't the purpose of this project... nothing is done manually :D

Try this site out, it has 100s nms seeds.

thats for manual seed gathering though. not sure they would appreciate 10s of 1000s of force generated seeds as I can't link them to a system or source aside from the seeds themselves.

i'll ask anyways thanks for the link.

edit:
update.. the author of that site asks people to contact him/her and has their contact information on a subpage hidden in a hard to see blurb. the contact address is info@nmseeds.club

Maybe the site owner will share the database.
Davoodinator Apr 26, 2018 @ 6:42pm 
also I dont have a good way to figure out the 3 colours used by the ships/tools

Hi! site owner here (thanks for linking to the site!)
:) (as replied per email) would love to try and get this working but we do need to find a way to also get the data: type, seed, at least 1 colour, but 2-3 would be ideal. description isnt so important, but i dont mind if you want to drop a link to your github page in there.

First lets see how much data can be grabbed in the process, OCR could be a good approach. For everything else, i'd be happy to set up a "crowd sourcing" section of the website where users can browse through any items missing information and can then submit the missing information before moving on to the next image.

ok great let's keep the thread alive for now i'm going to think about a few solutions.

regarding colours... i can propose a statistical approach to determining colour but that might require too much processing per image hahah.
Davoodinator Apr 27, 2018 @ 10:21am 
ok solution 1 is to convert existing images to be named to have the seed as filename -> this requires ocr and is gonna be a sloppy mess.. this is technically the worst solution and is just me trying to change a design chocie I made (convnience of having the immutable seed as the name of item in the screenshot as filenames i consider to be mutable).

solution 2 is to redo everything and rename screenshots as-they-are-generated to have the seed name.. this is more possible and can be done with a .bat file passing an argument. this is easier than solution 1 but still will require some effort and will require regenerating the (not many imho) 100s of seeds i have done so far.

solution 3 is to just take the files as-is and have a separate section with "generative seeds not submitted by users" and then let people "claim" them and add details. the value proposition here is that only the seeds that people actually want will be part of the main-searchable DB.. best thing here would be to just link directly to the github folders so you dont use your bandwidth. no need to have indexed the eventualy 10s of 1000s of seeds on your site if people don't like everyhting (also there are alot of repeats). github has thumbnail folder and the images so you can easily set things up for previews etc.
Davoodinator Apr 27, 2018 @ 10:22am 
solution 1 not gonna happen. just a mess

solution 2 vs solution 3 is really the question of

Do you want 10s of 1000s of items ? many of which will be 100% identical to each other? that is solution 2.

Do you want the 10s of 1000s of items but have a curation layer? that is solution 3

No, I was saying there is a picture of it on the NMS Wiki, and that you should look there for the picture! I was what area of the site to look for it find it!
Luckdragon Apr 28, 2018 @ 3:22am 
If the filename can be the seed then we can filter out same seeds (also seeds that are also already in the database) that would be quite useful. I can automatically add everything to the database but with a "generated" flag, these items will only be visible on a new crowdsourcing section where we can all review them one by one, decide if they are worth keeping and add any missing data.

might also look at automatically cropping the generated images a bit on import so they are more focused on the actual item :)
