Reason: Update mod to version: 27.01.23
This mod adds Near-Earth Objects like moons, asteroids, space debris, and artificial-satellites that has to be launched into orbit. Everything is visible and animated as an orbit on the world map mode. The moons are playable biomes that needs to be discovered.
The rocket to the left is a satellite that you can launch into orbit. This will be visible in the world map and is required to find moons. The amount of satellites you have also increases the chance of finding mineral rich asteroids in orbit. The middle rocket is the space station that you can launch into orbit, and it will generate a map with a simple starter station. The right most rocket is a cargo transport pod and can carry more weight. Useful for asteroid mining.
Because of how the fuelling station spot gets placed, I had to make the actual size of the launchpad different then the texture which makes this process a bit awkward. To select the launchpad you will need to click one tile to the left of the middle (double click if you only get the transport pod). This is where you fuel up the transport pods.
To discover moons, you are required to have two satellites in orbit. Once you have that you can use the satellite dish to communicate with the satellites to find a moon orbiting the planet.
Mineral-rich asteroids will randomly show up in the asteroid belt for a limited time. You can harvest the asteroids, but is only reachable from orbit (space station or moon base). The number of artificial satellites orbiting the planet will increase the chance of spotting these mineral-rich asteroids.
The only impact this mod has on performance is on the world map. If it lags for you, I recommend using My Little Planet to generate smaller planets. I have also added settings where you can change the amount of satellite objects you want to spawn (asteroid belt). This, however, requires a new save.
- Save our Ship 2 to add the space environment on the biomes. You can land the SoS2 ship on the moon.
- My Little Planet will help with performance on the world map.
