Map Release: Pyrrhic Nebula

Post by LuggLD » Fri Dec 23, 2011 4:41 am

Alright then!

As I've said elsewhere, I'm currently working on a map generator for SotS2. It's not done yet by far, but sometimes an odd little nicety (or a nice little oddity) comes out when my algorithms aren't behaving the way they should. And it is due to such a weird bug that I bring you today:

Click here for an animated preview

It's a 5 player map with 150 stars, so even with a 9 system start, there is plenty of room to expand before you meet an enemy, which is just the way I like it.
I haven't figured out automatic node line generation properly yet, so unfortunately, playing SolForce is not advised.

Download the map here. (Version 0.9)

To install, simply copy the .starmap file into your [your Steam folder]\steamapps\common\sword of the stars ii\assets\base\starmaps\ and launch the game, easy as pie!

Feedback is welcome!
Also, if there are any Python programmers who feel like hunting bugs with me... let me know :)

This one looks really good, I will give it a try. However, I guess I will change it to 8 players. Have you fixed the starting positions, or are they random ?

They're fixed. I had 8 starting positions first, but they ended up being too close to each other when starting with 9 systems. Anyway, feel free to change it up and post it here :)

Excellent :) Now, let us both hope, that the strange crash/problem I encountered is not related to user built maps. Looking forward to play yours though :)
