This program was coded by me as I was sick
of playing with the planet coordinates to place
a planet. Inputing the numbers than testing..
Than back to the XML when it was not right and
so and so forth..
Ok, this is real simple. Open up PPP.exe and
place your mouse cursor in the galaxy. Move the
crosshairs to a location you want a planet to be
and double click. Your Location will be placed
into the X and Y Location boxes on the right.
Now, there a few things to remember. You dont
need the decimals so you may drop them. Also
the program is a beta so as it is right now
the numbers for top and botom are inverted.
Meaning that the top is supposed to be + and
the bottom is supposed to be negative (-).
Its inverted at the moment. I'll work on that
for version 2. Left and right are fine..
Its just top and bottom. So any Y position that has
a (-) should be a postive and vice versa.
Now... when you edit the Planets.xml youll notice 3
sets of numbers for the "Galactic Coordinates" field.
These are X,Y,Z. X and Y are all you need. Z by default
is 10 and that is the tilt of the planet. You dont
need to mess with this.
Also.. make sure you run higher than 1024x768 RES. There have been some known issues with resolutions this low.
Changes for 1.1
Added a visual reference and counter for the planets placed.
There is a bug with the count being off by one. I know about it.
I may release the source as I will not be adding to this anymore. This does NOT support FoC at the moment. So dont try it. I may make a 2.0 that supports FoC.
