New planet types
5 new planet types will be introduced:
More textures for existing
More planets for existing planet types have been added, in total there are 42 new planets.
Our own solar system
14 planets, planetoids and gas/ice giants from our Sol system are included. However I have not yet released a map with these planets, you can make your own with the Galaxy Forge program I've bundled with the latest release of the mod (for more info check the download details of 0.981b).
Jupiter (Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto)
New planet bonus system
The new system (or logic, call it what you want!) I've implemented is pretty straight forward: you get into a planet gravity well and detect various anomalies on the planet (these are lvl -1 bonuses and are mostly negative). They will mostly affect Population and Planet Development, the rest, not so much!
Upon colonization, survey teams may or may not find lvl 0 bonuses, these range from negative to good i.e. mineral rich soil, biohydrocarbon algae, etc etc..
These will mostly affect population, trade and planet development.
Once colonized, you can scan (planet exploration) the planet for valuable resources such as Uranium, Palladium, ...
These resources will attract businesses according to how rare a resource is, Silica is abundant, so it will only attract a small group of businesses (i.e. increase planet population by a small amount). Uranium however is more rare, so it will attract more businesses (increasing planet population by a larger amount).
New envoirnments and rendering
New colored skyboxes are added, as well as a new starfield and starscape stars (the blinking stars on the background). The planet rendering has been changed so the dark side of the planet appears more realistic, creating more dramatic terminators.
All planets have new icons, dwarf planets have small icons, normal planets medium size and gas giants large sized icons.
All units and structures have been scaled down by 75% creating a much more realistic, planets will look huge!
Planet textures: myself, Freebitmaps and Celestia Motherlode.
Star textures: Celestia Motherlode
Skyboxes: SoA2 Modding Team
