Question Creating New Planets

I'm pretty sure that this has been asked before, but how, exactly, do you create a new planet entry in GC maps? Like using Shola's land and space maps but renaming it, say, "Mustafar" and changing the .DAT file (I can do that).


Come on, did you actually think your destiny wasn't set?

ugh, here goes again, i really should copy paste but even i am too lazy...

k, first step, copy some planet's info in the planets.xml file and paste it, effectively duplicating a planet, now change its name, and change the text id entry to the new name (make sure its in caps or it wont work, i think, i tried lc but was having problems), now change its galactic position (these are stored as x, y, z values, dont worry about the z becuase its not really used)

now open up the dat file with the dateditor and add a line with "TEXT_OBJECT_STAR_SYSTEM_(planet name here)" in the left column and the planets name in the right column

hope that helps

Thanks, it does. And sorry if I ticked you off with this (lol).
