Asteroids
« on: June 06, 2013, 04:45:26 AM »

Is it possible to make new asteroids? or is that hardcoded or something? because i can't find any file related to them.

reason im asking is because i just made a massive asteroid for l0lz that will make tomato juice out of ships it hits. ;D

Biggest asteroid in vanilla.


My asteroid.

Throw in a few turrets and we can call it a pirate base. Nice work.

Sorry for posting something that doesn't answer your question, but can I "borrow" that asteroid and make something out of it? there's something I've wanted to try for a while with asteroids in Starsector. I'd like to use the result in a mod, too, if you wouldn't mind.

As much as I like the big asteroid (and it's very nice!), I'm afraid they're all hardcoded. They don't even have detailed collision bounds; they're all circles under the hood.

I may end up taking a look at that at some point, but I can't say when something like that would get priority.

Sure you can borrow it, pirate base is part of my mod now ( i liked it so much! ) but you can have the other one from the first post.

And Alex, i do hope asteroids become moddable, there's so many things you can do with them. ::)

The background is really hard to remove without doing it pixel by pixel, think you could send the sprite via PM? ???

Do you even AfterEffects? Just key out light reds and purples.
