I recently liked the ancient planet from Maelstrom. So, with novice modding skills, I tried to incorporate just the ancient planet to the vanilla version in Rebellion + DLC. Here is what I did...
GameInfo - I took out PlanetAncients.entity and all the associated planet bonuses.
Mesh - Took out only PlanetAncients.mesh
String - English.str (nothing modified)
Textures - 4 ancient planet's texture files
Window - HUDIcon, InfoCardIcon, MainViewIcon, and Picture-Planet.brushes
After seperating those files out, I put the 5 folders in a one folder and added to the mod and tried in Large Single-system Random map.
Result was disappointing. I put 6 AIs in the same team and 1 AI in the other and mass spawned scouters in 8x speed to check all the planets. I didn't see a single ancient planet.
What did I do wrong? Why can't I see the ancient planet in the map?
If any experts out there could help me out it will be greatly appreciated because I want ancient planet just for my single player gaming experience.
(In extreme case, an already-ready-to-go mod that I can just download and paste in the mod folder would be awesome, because I can just compare what I did and the completely working version. ).
