Description: A custom playfield for PLANETS (incl. Moons) folder consists of THREE files - terrain.ecf - playfield_dynamic.yaml (overall layout ) - playfield_static.yaml (specific settings, POI, ressources etc) A custom playfield for ORBITS consists of ONE file - playfield_dynamic.yaml Usecase: Example A: Use in DEFAULT RANDOM scenario ( = default SP game scenario) 1. unzip the playfield folder and make sure the folder contains the files noted above 2. Copy the folder to ..\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Playfields 3. Go to ...\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\RandomPresets 4. Open the 'solarsystemconfig' with Notepad++ or Editor 5. If your custom playfield is a PLANET, add it to the 'SectorPlanets:' area by using its FOLDER name Note: If your custom playfield is an ORBIT or a MOON or has a custom playfield TYPE, you might need to add further changes to the 'PlanetTypes' section Example Code: - Name: TemperateStarter (< this is a playfield TYPE) Color: [0.04, 0.8, 0.1] Icon: Circle Distance: [400, 850] PlayerStart: true # Neighbor 'Name, Probability [0..1]' Neighbor: - Snow, 1 - SpaceTradingStation, 0.3 OrbitType: [OrbitStarter] (< Add the folder name of a custom orbit, so it will spawn with ANY playfield using this planet TYPE ) MoonProb: 1 MoonType: [MoonStarter] (< Add the folder name of a custom moon playfield, so it will spawn with ANY playfield using this planet TYPE ) Climate: Temperate PlayfieldLevel: [1,1] Playfields: - TemperateStarterCustom (< this is the planet FOLDER name) If your custom planet playfield uses a CUSTOM playfield TYPE, you can simply copy such an entry and enter the custom playfield TYPE in the first line + add the playfield FOLDER name in the last line) EXAMPLE B: Use in a custom scenario (Random Gen) The same steps as above are used, except you first need to open the scenario folder, like ..\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Scenarios\Default Multiplayer where you can find the \Playfields and the \RandomPresets folder! EXAMPLE C: Fixed solar system (non-random) 1. unzip the playfield folder and make sure the folder contains the files noted above 2. Go to the scenario folder, f.ex.: ..\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Scenarios\MSS Akua-Omicron 2. Copy the unzipped custom playfield folder to ..\Playfields 3. Go to the sector setup folder: ..\Empyrion - Galactic Survival\Content\Scenarios\MSS Akua-Omicron\Sectors 4. Open the Sectors.yaml with Notepad++ or Editor 5. Add your custom playfields (planets, moons or orbits) with the appropriate settings Code: - Coordinates: [-29, -7, -13] SectorMapType: Planet Playfields: - ['0, 0, 0', Oscutune, Ocean ] - ['-6041, 0, 5619', Oscutune Moon, MoonDesert ] - ['0, 0, 0', Oscutune Orbit, SpaceOrbit ] Note: you need to set this manually! The entry requires Coordinates, SectorMapType (Planet) and at least an Orbit and Planet entry (for this SectorMapType; Other types might require different parameters > check the MSS Akua-Omicron scenario Sectors.yaml for examples!).
