I have a couple questions, if that's okay, I have read the topic on how to customize planets and so forth, but a couple things just don't seem to "click" with me. There's some of the code that I am still not sure on what does what, so I wasn't sure what I should, and shouldn't use for what I am trying to do. I'm also not sure on what kind of planets there was a limit on, I think I saw something about not being able to have multiple planets of the same type or class? Anyway, for what I am doing, I would like to make some planets (and eventually made up ones entirely) based upon worlds from the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, from the reminagined Battlestar Galactica series.
First thing's first, I would like the star itself to be named "Helios" that part i kinda got, but is it possible to make it an orange star? I'm not sure if the color of the stars were ever mentioned on BSG, or shown, and I don't think the wiki has any information on this. The wiki did mention multiple stars named "Helios Alpha" and so forth, but I'm fine with just "Helios" as it's only one star.
Now, for the planets, what I will do, I guess will depend on what it is that I can do for planet types/classes and how many per system of the same (or not) that I can do. Right off, I know I want "Caprica" and I was thinking... Class 15 (for those useable squares to start out on), Earth like in appearance and terrain, but with it's own land formations. I'd be fine with a stock "map" or whatever it would be called for the appearance, as I'm not to sure I could make a decent raw file, but I'd kinda like the planet to be the same each time (I think...) like Earth is when using the Humans.
The next planets, again, will depend on what I can, and cannot do from here on out, but I'm thinking the next world can be Tauron, which according to the Battlestar Wiki, is a barren planet. Not exactly sure what class I should do, as despite being barren, and there beeing no flowers (by religious choice), the wiki says it's known for it's "agriculture" as it's considered a wealthier colony, perhaps a class eight or nine, or so.
The next world, I figure could be Gemenon, which is shown to be desert like, with frozen plateaus and searing deserts, which makes life very harsh, so I'm thinking I should say around a class five to seven, and a desert planet.
the next two worlds definitely depends on what I can and cannot do, and I haven't fully decided on what I want to use yet, I kind of like the name " Sagittaron" but there isn't anything known about it. During game play, I've often renamed planets to "Virgon" which is known for it's forrests and so forth, so I guess that'd be somewhat Earth like.
Anyway, any help that could be given in this matter, or tips would be greatly appreciated. Again, as I am not to sure about making the "raws" for now at least, I could deal with using the in game "stock" appearances,
