    Hi there,

    I am work on a mod with the aim of improving system generation. The first version is out on PAMM. Currently it adds 3 templates. All single planet systems.

    Small
    Code:
                      
    {
      starting_planet: true,
      mass: 50000,
      Thrust: [0, 0],
      Radius: [375, 425],
      Height: [20, 25],
      Water: [30, 40],
      Temp: [0, 100],
      MetalDensity: [30, 40],
      MetalClusters: [30, 40],
      BiomeScale: [0, 100],
      Position: [50000, 0],
      Velocity: [0, 100],
      Biomes: ['earth', 'desert', 'tropical', 'lava', 'moon', 'metal']
    }
    Medium
    Code:
    {
      starting_planet: true,
      mass: 50000,
      Thrust: [0, 0],
      Radius: [575, 650],
      Height: [20, 25],
      Water: [30, 40],
      Temp: [0, 100],
      MetalDensity: [30, 40],
      MetalClusters: [30, 40],
      BiomeScale: [0, 100],
      Position: [50000, 0],
      Velocity: [0, 100],
      Biomes: ['earth', 'desert', 'tropical', 'lava', 'moon', 'metal']
    }
    Large
    Code:
    {
      starting_planet: true,
      mass: 50000,
      Thrust: [0, 0],
      Radius: [700, 850],
      Height: [20, 25],
      Water: [30, 40],
      Temp: [0, 100],
      MetalDensity: [30, 40],
      MetalClusters: [30, 40],
      BiomeScale: [0, 100],
      Position: [50000, 0],
      Velocity: [0, 100],
      Biomes: ['earth', 'desert', 'tropical', 'lava', 'moon', 'metal']
    }
    
    I plan on adding much more. If anyone has any suggestions on what type of planets/templates you would like you would like to see, I will try to add them.

    This will be fantastic once more systems are integrated or even the possibility of being able to add your own systems via the settings menu

    New version is now out on PAMM. Only a small update. It now uses a dropdown menu to select templates.

    My next step is to add/create a lot of templates. If anyone has any suggestions/requests for what these should be, it would be nice to hear them.

    When you click the new game button, what you get varies a lot. You get different amounts of planets of varying size. You also get different results depending on how many players there are.

    For example if you have 3 players, pressing the new game button will randomly choose between 6 templates. Out of those templates you have
    • 3*4 planet templates
    • a 3 planet template
    • a 2 planet template
    • a single planet template

    What this mod does is it allows you to choose your template. If I wanted to play on a system with a normal size planet with a tiny orbiting moon, then I would choose a template for that. I could then guarantee that my system would have the following
    Code:
    {
       starting_planet: true,
       mass: 50000,
       Thrust: [0, 0],
       Radius: [575, 650],
       Height: [20, 25],
       Water: [30, 40],
       Temp: [0, 100],
       MetalDensity: [35, 45],
       MetalClusters: [35, 45],
       BiomeScale: [0, 100],
       Position: [50000, 0],
       Velocity: [0, 100],
       Biomes: ['earth', 'tropical', 'lava', 'moon', 'metal']
    }
    And
    Code:
    {
       starting_planet: true,
       mass: 5000,
       Thrust: [1, 1],
       Radius: [50, 100],
       Height: [10, 40],
       Water: [0, 50],
       Temp: [0, 100],
       MetalDensity: [5, 10],
       MetalClusters: [5, 10],
       BiomeScale: [0, 100],
       Position: [60000, 0],
       Velocity: [0, -58.1138],
       Biomes: ['earth', 'tropical', 'lava', 'moon']
    }

    Just a heads-up, this mod seems to break the new lobby in PTE.
    It dis-align army slot and make secondary color selection not possible.

    Also it does not allow (me at least) to add more lobby slots within the game lobby when your mod is enabled.

    Mod appears non-functional with the current patch.
    I get a screen that does not properly load and no options are selectable.

    Liquius left along with most of the other developers of the Realm Community Balance Mod.

    This mod has essentially been replaced by @yarmond's Awesome System Generator.

    I just encountered this issue with the recent PTE for Legions. Can we have it removed from PAMM & the CMM?

    It's still in it? I swear I removed it already.

    Done.
