Okeedokee, I'll fix the system map, thanks!

EDIT:
9 planets, huh?  That's...a lot.  The system's going to be a *** at this rate. ::)

Yes, but I don't think we need 9 planets for the demo atm.

Almost done, though fitting in the rest of the planets later on in the demo is going to be hard.  The asteroid belt is at 10,000 distance, just about as far as Corvus V is from Corvus.  That's FAR. ;D

Can we add a feature so that after x amounts of km travelled and if you don't have any enemies chasing you, you're able to go inte to "hyperdrive" or something which triples your movement?

As far as I know, maybe.  If it's been a certain time since a battle, you could start a hyperdrive.  Like if you lose a battle, you gain the 50% extra speed. You could, in theory, make a delay of sorts if you win or lose a battle, giving you a, per say, 100% speed boost.

Oh, and on the bright side, the whole system is MOSTLY done, though Komori extends past outside the map grid.  It's still accessible, without the fancy grid though.

Some moons have to be adjusted, planet rotations adjusted, and various other little details.

OK, I've one last grudge.  The CDF base isn't a moon base, technically.  It's hovering right next to the moon, but I can't fix that. so, yea. ;D

cant you just adjust the grid sprite present in the starfarer data :P
just enlarge it would enlarge it into the game too,
although then you would extend the mod past the mod folder :/

The neutral faction is ready to be included in the mod. To do so, look at the dropbox in https://www.dropbox.com/home/Project%20Caelus/Thaago%20temporary/Neutral%20Mod

This includes just the new files: neutral.faction, NSpawnPoint.java
And modifications to: SectorGen.java, Corvus.java

If you are running demo 4, simply replace the files you currently have with those files.

If the most up to date files (for demo 5) have been modified beyond what they were in demo 4, I included a readme with instructions on how to update SectorGen and Corvus.java to include neutrals.

Features:
They are hostile only to pirates.
4 types of neutrals: Traders, Trading Fleets, Mercenary, and Revenge Armada.

All fleets spawn on the left side of the system, and despawn at one of two locations on the right.
Traders and Trading Fleets will go to one of the orbital bases at random (presumably to trade) and then head to the right to despawn. They do not carry any cargo, but could if people want (and the command would be changed from GO_TO to DELIVER).

Mercenary fleets will go to a random orbital station and defend it for 30 days.

Revenge Armadas head towards and attack the pirates home planet (Eudora B) for 30 days.

Faction color is gold.

Let me know how it goes, I had no idea how many ships to include in the fleets for balance so I just guessed.

Aww. mods to SectorGen.java?  Damn it, all my planet works goes to waste. ;D
Anyway, if this gets implemented, because it sounds really promising, I'll have to modify the planets code part of the SectorGen.java.

The modification to SectorGen is literally 1 line, just setting the netruals hostile to pirates. When we make demo 5 just drop it in at the end, it won't interfere with anything you've done. Subversion is looking better and better...

[EDIT] Oh, but the NSpawnPoint does rely on the pirates spawning at Eudora B for the revenge fleet to make sense, and needs the names of the orbital stations to stay the same. It those change its a really easy fix though. :D

One line?  That's it? ;D
Anyway, the new sector generation is on DB.  Once Demo 5 gets out, replace the SectorGen.java (and add the necessary bits of Thaago's code if you wish for his bit as well) and start a new game to see it.
