By @totalannihilation and @cptconundrum The Genesis Device is an advanced mod for Planetary Annihilation system designing. The main section of the mod allows you to build more accurate ellipses in the Planetary Annihilation System Designer by enabling the use of the Polar Coordinate System instead of the old X&Y Cartesian Coordinate System. When the mod is successfully installed and activated, a new “Ellipse Generator” tab should appear when selecting any planet in the System Designer. You can find the Genesis Device mod on the PA Mod Manager. Read more about how to use our Genesis Device mod to make beautiful elliptical orbits in the System Designer in our new guide, Introducing The Genesis Device: Advanced System Editor Tools. To read more on the math behind this mod, take a look at @totalannihilation's excellent paper on converting polar coordinates to cartesian inside the System Designer. At the same time, we have also officially announced the new map-making team, Team Genesis. Let's work together to make some creative and balanced competitive maps! Start by sharing screenshots of your work made by the Genesis Device here!
