    Showcase your custom planets here for a chance to have your planet added to @ravien_ff 's premiere Project Eden scenario.

    Challenge rules and guidelines:

    • Post a link to your planet below, either directly, or in .zip format via a link to a file sharing service like Google Drive.
    • Include a description of your planet. (Show us some pics!)
    • Enter as many times as you like, but one planet (or moon) per 'post reply'.
    • Use any tools you like, but we suggest the Empyrion Playfield Designer (EPD) and/or a text file editor like VS Code or Notepad ++.
    • Planets with both a playfield_static.yaml and playfield_dynamic.yaml format are preferred, but playfield.yaml format will be accepted. (Don't forget to include the terrain.ecf!)
    Deadline: January 31st, 2020

    Winner chosen by poll after all entries are in. Good Luck! and let's see some strange new worlds!

    Exactly what are we supposed to submit with this? A dummy scenario with a single planet? A playfield.yaml? some weird custom xml you want? I also point out it's *really* hard to understand this stuff without having done it for several months. The playfield editing 'community' I could probably count on 2 hands, and most of the knowledge is very fragmented.

    I'd also point out since A11, the SSG tool is like more buggy than usual (which is weird considering no playfield features were added...)

    Either the playfield files, or a dummy scenario in .zip format or uploaded to the workshop.

    I'm pretty active on the forums so I'm always available to answer questions and such.

    We are gonna extend the deadline to January 31st, to give those who are working more time, and to encourage those who are thinking about it to give it a go. Again, Ravien and I are here to answer any questions about using the tools or editing .yaml files.

    Honestly feel like I'm the only person dumb enough to try and submit something for this lol. I will submit a workshop scenario which will have it's own prefabs.

    Or the only person smart enough. Hell you're on track to win by default. Hopefully you have some competition. I predict a dark horse out there working on something we don't even know about.

    I'm working on one, but with my son on vacation, it's hard to get a time to use the PC.
