When are asteroids spawned?
« on: April 11, 2015, 03:50:11 am »
I'm thinking about a mod to add more interesting types of asteroid. I'm wondering when asteroids are spawned though, is that when the galaxy is first created? i.e. will this require creating an entirely new game?

Asteroids are spawned when galaxy is generated.

But if you want to just replace existing asteroids you don't need to change anything in scripts at all, you can just edit the asteroid definitions itself.

Thanks for confirming that. I was looking to add a series of variants on each asteroid type while waiting for more interesting asteroids to come out of the core team. m/
