New planets?

Postby w03 » Mon Feb 15, 2010 10:16 pm

I was wondering how to make new planets... and got totally confused by all of the information!

So... does anyone know an easy way to make planets? (and to make landing backgrounds, for that matter)

I noticed that the system files only need to know the image name (for example, planets/desert.png) to know what planet to load. How does this work?

What do you mean with planets. Planet types (like n class etc) ? Planet textures ?
If you mean planet types, you have to add them to the universe.xml and the units.xml (have a look there, copy and paste, rename and modify), create a base script where the landing screen and the rooms etc. are defined (have a look at the bases folder) and then modify a system file to see and test it...
