ratchit yourinstrctions will only show the original maps & any galaxy forge maps, BUT WILL NOT show the map designer maps which are in the galaxy folder next to the mods folder ie sins options mods show mod path(eg C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\Local Settings\Application Data\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\mods) then open the folder in galaxy forge C:\Documents and Settings\"user name"\Local Settings\Application Data\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\galaxy and you will see the map designer maps,then you can edit it BUT you MUST save the galaxy in the program files galaxy folder ie 'C:\Program Files\Stardock Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\Galaxy' if you save the map from galaxy forge in the documents & settings galaxy it WILL crash sins.
sorry about being so het up about this but I am trying to prevent some crashes that happened to me
hope this helps
Ah! yes I see. I thought he was talking about maps created in galaxy forge with random planets /stars etc. I didn't know you could alter the ones created in game. you have helped me out also there is no need to be sorry, but I appreciate your politeness none the less.
And I also indorse the game, also the community here is fantastic and there is allways someone willing to help you out and steer you in the right direction.
