the moons will be seperate planets from the gas giants. I'll make a huge mesh for the gas giants. I mean like HUGE. I hope to put in different planet sizes but i'll have to do more research on density, size, and composition. The current mesh is good for dwarf planets, like yavin 4 and endor's moon. So i'll put in Moon, Normal, Huge, and Super. Ice and Gas Giants get their own giant mesh.
We need to finish up the NR and Vong before moving back. But I have maps planned for wars going all the way back to the tionese war. Then once we get enough source material for Eville he can make new models but that will be in the future. The ships are slow... I know. Slower than they should be.
Here. I made the ships faster. It works for my maps. They close way faster so they can use more of their weapons before dieing. So it's a bit more fun. You can move ships into point-blank range pretty quickly, and then watch the fireworks.
Shuttles not so much... Eville has trade ship designs but they are low on the list of things to do.
And that's the point. You CAN'T patrol. You have to think bigger. This is the galaxy, not a little valley where patrolling makes sense. You have to rely on turrets and light picket ships to hold attckers off till help arrives. That's what fleets are for, smashing attackers once they attack. You may succeed or not. Besides the temporary loss of a planet is just an annoyance on these maps. Unless it's a major hyperlane hub, like Brentaal, Corellia, Denon, Coruscant and the like. The loss of those major planets can really hurt your strategy.
