Welcome to the Cosmos Ad Infinitum Mod for Sins of a Solar Empire

Project Goal
Provide the potential for an infinite
number of new systems to Sins of a Solar Empire without dramatically
changing core game play elements.

To accomplish this, the mod will make use
of script generation developed by me to automate the redundant time
consuming tasks of creating entity files, wiring the GalaxyScenerioDef,
planetary bonuses and planet abilities.

Features of the mod:

  • New Planet Sizes: Dwarf, Normal, Giant
  • Custom icons and pictures for all new planets
  • Matching mainview icon sizes for planets
  • New planetary bonuses, potentially based on planet type (WIP)
  • New planetary abilities (WIP)
  • TBD (new stars, moons, non-traditional planets, etc)

Comments:
Planet Types/Sizes
New planet types must be mapped to one of
the existing: Terran, Volcanic, Ice, Desert, Asteroid, or GasGiant
equivalent. The new planet type may get some tweaking but will mainly be
used to drive the planetary type specific bonus/minus applied to the
planet.

Planet sizes may be used to determine
bonuses, abilities, upgrades and resource asteroids available. Still
researching what I like best.

I'm still in the process of improving a
few elements for this mod. One being a script to generate the brush
entries for the mainview, hudicons infocards, pictures and undetected
icon sets. I've also improved the process for icon and pictures which
results in a better quality image (not in the test systems yet).

Current Iteration 1 test Systems (Not released):

Fictional Sol
(Textures from Celestial Bodies, and various other public sources)

Rigel
(Textures from Rigel system in Celestial Bodies)

Tenorias
(Textures from Tenorias system in Celestial Bodies)

The planet mods can't be activated together due to constraints on Sins stacking rules (GalaxyScenarioDef specifically).

I've made some changes to help with using the new planets classifications in GalaxyForge.

For example it is now possible to identity RigelTerran separate from the normal Sin's Terran planets.

Hello to everyone

Sorry for the question but:

Sun & Rigel files can work together?

and how do I determine the specific type of planet with galaxy forge ?

I'm new like this, please have mercy ;-)

don't be afraid to add fictional space objects, like Halo Rings... or even make up your own.

A download is pending of the Sol System. I had to make some modifications to use a new texture sheet for the icons, but the end result is pretty good and the icons where generated from a better render.

It's not meant to replace Stars, Distant Stars, etc...

It's more of an exploration of the various textures that exist and making them available to Sins for casual changes and to any mods if they choose to use them.
