    Hi Guys,

    I was wondering, would it be possible to create a planet without the resource nodes and only use falling meteors?

    I guess that really depends on what drops with the meteor.

    I think the meteor process is triggered when one of a planet's resources drops below 10% of the originally generated amount. My guess is the closest you could get at this time would be to have it generate 1 node for each resource and make it a size 1 or 2, so that it will be mined out in a matter of seconds and trigger the meteorites for that resource.

    Also I don't know if they've fixed it yet, but in pre-alpha when we'd trigger the meteors for a resource, they would follow us and start falling on any system we went to.

    Sound like a user centric event.

    That still happens. I mined out most of the magnesium on Akua since the Alpha, and got a meteor there. When I went to Akua moon a magnesium meteor dropped - and of course, the moon has no magnesium normally. I haven't seen the thing you got some time back on your LPs though, where the meteors would "fall" in space.

    Yeah they fixed the meteors falling in space thing. That was a hilarious bug.

    Yeah i guess i have to tell the game wich resources should be on the planet in the first place. Your idea indeed seems like the closest to what i want.
