making a new planet class....?
I've tried adding in a new planet class, so far no luck. i had it show up in game a one point in time, but there was no picture or icon of the planet, it was invisible but when you click on the hex where the planet was it would show up.....can anyone help me with this ?? oh yea how can you add more planets on to a system?? any advice is welcome ^^

Re: making a new planet class....?
What, specifically, have you done thus far?

You can add more planets to systems in SystemTypes.txt.

Re: making a new planet class....?
so far ive added a new class in planetsize.txt, change the systemtype.txt to include the class just added

Chance Type 1 Any Size 6 Type := Gigantic
Chance Type 1 Any Size 6 Chance := 20

then i copied and pasted planets in stellerobjectstype.txt to have that class ex..

Stellar Object Name := Planet Ice 9004 Gigantic
Physical Type := Planet
XFile Class Name := Planet Ice 9004 Gigantic
Maximum Model Size := 17.0
Hex Size := 1
Picture Index := 171
Portrait Filename := planet_ice_9004_gigantic.bmp
Large Portrait Filename := planet_ice_9004_gigantic_lp.jpg
Description :=
Planet Size := Gigantic
Planet Physical Type := Ice
Planet Atmosphere := Hydrogen
Planet Gravity := Formula Planet Gravity
Planet Temperature := Formula Planet Temperature
Planet Radiation := Formula Planet Radiation
Planet Surface Empty := PlanetSurface_Ice_Hydrogen_Empty.bmp
Planet Surface Colonized := PlanetSurface_Ice_Hydrogen_Colonized.bmp

and lastly i added some entry in xfileclasses.txt

Name := Planet Ice 9004 Gigantic
XFile := Planet1000.x
Override Texture Filename := planet_ice_9004_gigantic.bmp
Base Model Radius := 2.0
Starting Rotate X := 50
Starting Rotate Y := 0
Starting Rotate Z := 25
Starting Scale X := 8
Starting Scale Y := 8
Starting Scale Z := 8
Starting Position Offset X := 0
Starting Position Offset Y := 0
Starting Position Offset Z := 0
Continual Rotation Vector X := 0
Continual Rotation Vector Y := 0
Continual Rotation Vector Z := 25
Continual Rotation Speed := 0.0001

is the picture index important?? Because that the only thing i did not change, or don't know how to go about it.

Re: making a new planet class....?
Did you change the number of chance types from 5 to 6 in SystemTypes.txt?
