    Some good finds. To note on this one, I believe you get ice planets by adjusting temperature.

    Why not making them their own biome, just like desert planets?

    Actually misread the bug. I'll poke at it and get it added unless there was a good reason.

    New Possible bug?

    This popped up when I tried to run AI Skirmish in Offline mode. I wanted to try out that new Quad Commander. The Game loaded sometime later. No idea as to what caused it. It has never happened before.

    We are planning on doing a CSG palette in the future. Just to let modders know :)

    That's part of the mergable (or pathable) settings I think. So not possible without adding custom brush definition files as it stands.

    Hehe.

    I'm getting a lot of crashes and bugs in the system editor when editing CSGs and metal :( Usually the game crashes, but when I manage to avoid that, CSGs don't save anyway. I was mostly trying to copy-paste them from other planets types.

    Thanks for the info.

    Is anyone managed to create donut-like planet yet? On moon with current way CSGs deform near to center of planet it's don't really want to work. I just wonder if it's possible to make it pathable via center of planet. :rolleyes:

    Actually, it looks like this:

    Because the delay value was never working before.

    I suppose it's might happen because of your anti-virus. By default PA client spawn server with "--headless" flag so it's shouldn't create window for sure. If this will start to happen for your more often try to disable AV and check it again.

    Should be possible with BP_None, at least. You'd probably have to play around with the moon crater to make a nice edge (dox here only sometimes made the jump), but cuts look possible.

    Yeah. I modified "moon.json" and changed proj of "moon_crater_02" to "BP_None". Then I successfully crafted working donut planet! :)
    Units do count it as shorter way on "move", but patrol don't work.

    PS: When I ming CSG's that hard to see inside planet I feel like I'm doing eye surgery. :D

    There a rules in the engine to prevent metal spots from being placed in a way which makes them unusable. The system editor will remove the invalid metal spots.

    Epic, epic, epic! Will definitly play a game with the new build tomorrow!
    Yip, but that´s a general truth for other things in PA as well:
    BTW: Uber, did you ever consider using vector graphics as Textures in PA? I mean your texturing style is simply perfectly suited to use them!

    I don't think there is any ice planet type though. Desert is a separate planet type because it can never have trees at any temperature, but ice planets are just low temperature to the point that the polar caps extend all the way out.

    Yeah we left it out of biome list as it's just an Earth biome with low temperature. Still, it was reported so will chat with design on it.

    Sounds like a plan. It's nice to see that you guys look into every bug that gets reported.
