    Empyrion Playfield DesignerAlpha 9:
    It's finally done for a first test release.

    As the changes from Alpha 7 to Alpha 8 simply were too big, i decided this version will only support saving of Alpha 8/9 playfields. At least for now.

    You will still be able to open Alpha 7 playfields of course, but those won't be saved correctly, if you choose a version lower than Alpha 8.

    Please bear in mind that this - like Empyrion - is still an experimental version. So please backup your data (although EPD also creates backups of edited files) before editing your scenarios.


    LATEST RELEASE VERSION (v1.60.2) with full Alpha 9.0.0 Support:

    TERRAIN EDITOR:
    For your basic setup of textures used in biomes.
    Can of course not replace the in-game editor, but enough for a basic setup.

    Thank you @RexXxuS & @Taelyn helping me sort out the bugs.

    ChangeLog:

    1.60.2
    CHANGES:
    - added EPBDetails Browser also to FixedPOIs
    - added HudDistance property to POI Properties
    - changed: removed 'None' from all properties except Faction properties, as those should be the only one using 'None' IIRC. If you encounter a property that still needs 'None' as value, let me know.

    1.60.1

    CHANGES:
    - added more properties to EPBDetails Browser (SpawnName, FileName, Scenario, Folder)

    - added/showing progressbars while importing blueprints

    1.60.0

    CHANGES:
    - First version of EPB (Blueprint) DetailsBrowser (only in RandomPOIs for now as test)

    - added <Null> (no output) and 'None' (will output) items to dropdowns to differentiate new faction:None and empty propeerties. Please test, if something is broken now with outputting 'None' and no output at all for properties.
    - Initialite AtmosphereParams to [1,1.6] if property does not exist in playfield yet. Pease test, if there are any regressions when saving

    1.59.6
    CHANGES:
    - enhanced EPBHandler Header a little more and refactored some read code.
    - added missing AtmosphereParams to playfield and playfield_static

    1.59.5

    FIXES:
    - fixed: Fixed POIs Prefabs list and PlanetVessel list (maybe others too) was empty, Just NullPOI and <NullItem>

    1.59.4
    CHANGES:
    - added Alpha9 items (FixedPlayerStart)
    - first test of newly implemented EPB (bluprint) reader. Now also all the A9 bluprints should show up in the Random POIs list. If not, please report and post bluprint (epb file).
    FIXES:
    - fixed: SpaceVessel did not have a Faction property
    - SpawnPOINearRange wasn't initialized correctly, thus was not saved to yaml on first try.

    1.59.3

    CHANGES:
    - added Factions to RandomPlanetVesselBase, RandomPlanetVessel & FixedSpaceVessel
    - added missing RipperDog to DroneBaseStock
    - added first try of PlayerStatus to FixedPlayerStart
    - changed Splash to Alpha8+
    1.59.2
    CHANGES:
    Alpha 9.0.0 ready
    - added Factions to RandomPOIs & FixedPOIs
    - added LevelMod to RandomPOIs & FixedPOIs
    - added OnlySpawnIfPOIIsAlien to SpawnZones
    - added AllowInWater to CreatureSpawing/Entities
    - added IsOrbitPlayfield to SpacePlayfields/General
    - added Escape POD Starting Pos to FixedPlayerStart
    1.58.1
    FIXES:
    - fixed: localizations weren't working anymore
    - fixed: PlayfieldType Selector wasn't showing playfield type on localized UIs.
    - fixed: PlayfieldTypeSelector was not initialized correctly on localized UIs.
    KNOWN ISSUES:
    - still non translated items, buttons, messages, and UI in general.

    1.58.0

    CHANGES:
    - added new SplashWindow instead of SplashImage on Startup (to make it possible to show text on splash).
    - changed: now showing version on SplashWindow
    - changed: DBItems ToString() method used in yaml emitting and listbox display now correctly returns ItemName (ingame name) instead of localname. Please check if there are any regressions. So far, i could not see any.
    - added entry 'None' to dropdown boxes. So now you can 'unset/clear' a value previously set in dropdown boxes.

    FIXES:
    - fixed: SpecialBiome's AvoidBiome always defaulted to first entry in biomes list, even if it should be empty.
    • 1.57.9
      • Changes
        • changed/fixed: splitted cleaning/reInit routines into the different playfield types to have different cleaning routines for each playfield type.
        • changed: Default Terrain after creating a fresh playfield is now A8's random terrain, not 'Temperate' anymore.
        • changed: enable/disable list buttons (Edit, Delete, MoveDown, MoveUp) based on if an item is selected.
        • added cleaner routine for Pos (Fixedplayerstart) and SpawnPOINear/Avoid
      • Fixes
        • fixed: Cleaner and ReInit bugs, especially with Space playfields, but also some for planet playfields
        • fixed: After saving, some list buttons (Edit, Move, ...) did not activate, when an item was selected
        • fixed: added NullChecks to the recently added Preflight checks. (Caused crashes on space playfields)
        • fixed: Space playfields: On a second save, planet properties were added to space playfield yamls. (Cleaner/ReInit bug), thx to Rexxxus for noticing
        • fixed: SpawnZones' ExcludeBiomes was not initialized correctly. Thus adding 1st item to empty list was not possible.



      • 1.57.8
        • Changes
          • PreFlight (playfield.yaml): added checks for broken links in playfield. E.g. If you delete a POI and this POI is still referenced in SpawnRateZones, or a biome you deleted is still referenced in RandomResources, ...

        • Changes
          • Playfield tree: Now context menu also works on ECF files (open in text editor, open folder, delete.
          • Playfield tree: added warning message before actually deleting a file via context menu
          • Input fields: For the long text (two lined) input fields I reverted the textalignment from right to left. The rest is still right-aligned.
          • TerrainEditor: Introduced Offline/Online mode when working with terrain files. If you just open a terrain ECF file without a playfield (or the wrong/a different) loaded, terrain editor will show OFFLINE MODE in the bottom of main window to make sure, you know you're editing the linked/unlinked file.



      • 1.57.6
        • Changes
          • Playfield tree: added ECF terrain files to playfield tree. Now you can just double click an ECF to open it directly in the TerrainEditor

          • added EGroups (ZiraxPatrols...) also to SpawnZones
          • added automatic recursive Preflight method to Main/Dynamic/Space Playfields. Just some basic checks yet.
          • added 'Use PreFlight' for all PlayfieldTypes into options to disable PreFlight. Maybe I'm too restrictive in some options. If you find something that should work and I list it as not working in PreFlight log, please let me know.
          • refactored getLog() method to get cleaner display in PreFlight log
          • changed DisplayName in SpawnZones list items.

          • new TextureBrowser in TerrainEditor supporting preview images, show inUse by which playfield objects, showing ID, limit textures to 16 avoiding COQs
          • added scraper for EGroupsConfig to gather new ZiraxPatrol, ...
          • added new detailed PreFlight Log and prepared everything for comprehensive playfield tests on safe. Only DynmicPlanet for now and just a few checks for testing purposes only.
          • Added first test of SpaceDynamic playfield editor. NOT YET feature complete and still WIP!!
          • changed the way Texture property in BiomeClusterData is handled. Now a checkbox to use Alternate textures to show all 7 slots instead of three.
          • added SeaWeed05
        • Fixes
          • fixed: Empty PlaceAt property was emitting '' to yaml causing a COQ on load.

      • 1.52.3
        • Changes
          • added scrapers for stamps, globalmasks and groundshapes. So from now on theses databases should be up-to-date automatically, when a new Empyrion version is out. EPD now checks and reimports those stamps on every start.
          • If a playfield version is not found or there is a new one not existing in config or database, EPD now sets the playfieldversion on first start to latest available version. Before versionselector was empty.
        • Fixes
          • fixed: some cleaner bugs

          • fixed. Some initialization bugs (e.g Stamps could not be added to a fresh biomecluster, ...)
      • 1.51.9
        • Changes
          • added SpawnRateZones and SpawnZones
          • added first version of PreFlight Window (previously checkOutLog) to dynamic yaml save. Just one check yet. = Preparations for future comprehensive playfield data check before save.
          • added 'Export' button to dynamic yaml editor to save dynamic into a different folder.
          • Added possibility to create a fresh dynamic file from scratch.
          • changed order of messageboxes when opening/editing a dynamic playfield. Now first check if a normal playfield.yaml is loaded, only then check for existing dynamic yaml.
        • Fixes:
          • fixed: some cleaner bugs
          • fixed: not all properties were initialzed correctly in playfield yaml/dynamic.yaml which led to some not written properties in yaml.
          • fixed: Biomes were not linked between playfield.yaml and dynamic.yaml, when creating a fresh dynamic file.

        • Changes:
          • Alpha 8 EXP III ready
          • Converter for A7->A8 playfields (still experimental and WIP)

    Tips & Tricks:
    • Always create your own scenario!
    • Never edit the game's orioginal playfield files!
    • EPD is designed to work with the default playfield.yaml (it can export a playfield_static.yaml though)
    • You can still use LiveReload in EPDA8. You just have to start Empyrion without EAC and edit the playfield in your savegames\template instead of your scenario folder. Edit some decorations -> hit Ctrl+S, then Ctrl+R and the playfield in game gets reloaded live while you're playing it with the new settings.
    Basic Workflow:
    1. Create a new scenario (e.g copy Akua-Omicron and rename it)
    2. copy an existing playfield with it's dynamic and static playfield.yamls to a new playfield folder inside of your scenario.
    3. use the SSG to setup you desired planet(s).
    4. On the top right of the SSG export the playfield.yaml
    5. This playfield.yaml can be edited with EPD exactly as it was in Alpha 7.x
    6. If you wish, you can export the playfield_static.yaml in EPD and reimport this into the SSG to see your creature and POI distribution for a given seed and to make changes again to your playfield setup (temps, humidity, water/land ratio, ...).
    7. Export the playfield.yaml
    8. If you like your creation, you are finished now. Or you can go back to step 5
    9. Setup the sector.yaml in your scenario to fit your playfields and player start preferences.
    Of course you can also start a playfield from scratch with EPD. Just select your desired type and click create new.
    But remember:
    For fixed playfields (not designed with or for SSG), you will only be able to use them inside a scenario.
    The main game is set up to work with dynamic and static.yamls directly to create randomized planets from those two on every fresh game start. The normal playfield.yaml will be ignored here.

    More detailed instructions to follow.

    Alpha 7 Playfield Converter:
    If you attempt to open an old Alpha 7 playfield and/or EPD can't find Alpha 8 properties, it will ask you, if you want to convert the playfield into Alpha 8.

    This feature is still experimental and may or may not work to your liking. :)

    Implemented features so far:
    - Recreates the Biomes to Alpha 8 Standard (also different treatment to Water, Mountains, and 'Other' biomes)
    - Biome: Converts old 'Altitude' properties in biomes into SelectionCriterias
    - Copies over deco and grass from A7 to A8 playfield
    - Recalculates densities of deco and grass (for now div by 50)

    Please tell me, what you think and what
    YOU would like to see in a converter, that would make your life easier converting playfields. Not everything's possible here, as A7 and A8 work very differently regarding terrain, textures, and such, but maybe I can make some things work. :)

    Have fun

    Is normal this ?
    Code:
    PlanetSize:
       SizeRange: [2, 3, 4]
       SizeProbs: ['0,25', '0,5', '0,25']
    For me, I think is :
    Code:
    PlanetSize:
       SizeRange: [2, 3, 4]
       SizeProbs: [0.25, 0.5, 0.25]

    BUG Report

    In converting v7 to v8, EPD isn't providing any of this terrain block information. Thats just a representative sample below. The planet type doesn't matter.
    EPD does recognize the block if it's manually put into the yaml.

    Terrain:
    Name: TemperateNew2 # Name of terrain dll or xml
    PoleLevel: 30 # Pole level of planet
    NoiseStrength: 0.2 # Dirt effect on terrain
    PerlinCol: 1.5 # Color Variation for Grass/Deco Plants (0 = No color change, 1 = Greyscale Color Variation, 2 = Full Color Variation, Default is 1)
    ColorChange: # Used to generate color differences in terrain
    YFadeCenter: 80 # Starting point for color change
    YFadeRange: 40 # Range for which color change is applied
    YFadeMin: 0.05 # Positive values: terrain gets brighter in valleys
    YFadeMax: -0.15

    First of all. The converter is highly experimental. Please be aware of that. :)

    The thing about the terrain is, that for the moment I delete the terrain in the old playfields when converting as I encountered massive problems with using xml or dll terrains.
    It might be my or EPDs fault. But I simply don't know yet.

    If I still used xml or dll terrains in an otherwise converted Alpha 8.0 Playfield, the game would not load the playfield anymore.

    Somthing about missing terrain file.

    If I used a Fixed (raw) map, everything was fine.

    So until this is sorted out, what causes the problems, I decided it would be best to throw out the terrain in the converter for now to make the playfields even startable.

    Maybe it has something to do with someof these old settings:
    'MainBiome'
    'SubBiomes'
    'BiomeTextureReplacement'

    I throw these out in any opened playfields, as they are not compatible with A8 terrains.

    But If you have any idea, what the issue could be, it would be of great help. :)

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I will gladly take a look, but maybe it will be some time. There's still a lot of things on my schedule. :)

    Your guess would be much better than mine. ;)

    Just thought Id relay you the info. The tool, even in this early release, has made the build process much faster. You have my gratitude.

    Oooohhhh. I have to try this!
    The scenario I'm working on is designed to be used with the random solar system generator and this looks like it will be really, really useful!

    UPDATE (v1.51.9)
    Alpha EXP V ready


    CHANGES:

    • added SpawnRateZones and SpawnZones
    • added first version of PreFlight Window (previously checkOutLog) to dynamic yaml save. Just one check yet. = Preparations for future comprehensive playfield data check before save.
    • added 'Export' button to dynamic yaml editor to save dynamic into a different folder.
    • Added possibility to create a fresh dynamic file from scratch.
      - Create or open a playfield.yaml.
      - Via file menu click 'edit dynamic playfield.yaml'. If no dynamic yaml is found in playfield.yamls path, EPD will ask you to create one from scratch and open the dynamic editor with this new file.
      Important:
      When clicking save in dynamic yaml editor also the normal playfield yaml automatically gets saved to keep the two files consistent!
    • changed order of messageboxes when opening/editing a dynamic playfield. Now first check if a normal playfield.yaml is loaded, only then check for existing dynamic yaml.
    FIXES:
    • fixed: some cleaner bugs
    • fixed: not all properties were initialzed correctly in playfield yaml/dynamic.yaml which led to some not written properties in yaml.
    • fixed: Biomes were not linked between playfield.yaml and dynamic.yaml, when creating a fresh dynamic file.
