I love Galactic Armory, as I'm sure most people do, and I see that you stopped development as well. I was hoping it might be something easy to do though.
I want a custom map type. One that has specific set settings. 3 clusters of solar systems, in a line but spread out from eachother, but each cluster has the systems in it close to each other. Maps have settings per map chosen, right? Well, if you add settings, it should allow for you to choose the specific cluster size. So if you choose 10, the map will have 31 systems in it (the extra 1 will be the center of the middle cluster in which will be the center star), then the 2 players will take the big main home system in their clusters at opposite ends of each other. Both systems having the same star type and same planets.
I did my best to draw out an explanation of what I want. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/30270697/systemmap.png
I want it to be the same stuff on each side. So both players start out with the same systems, their only difference is their leadership skill set that they chose pre-game. I like to have a staging area for battles so we can continue with our own progress without really hurting each other. It would be nice to have a middle ground to fight for control over. Practicing strategies and such. There have even been times where the enemy started out with a home system having only 3 planets, including his home planet. Same has happened to me, it's not really fun when you start out so badly.
Anyhow, if you can set it up, can you make the following options?
Cluster Size: (Value that indicates the amount of systems in each cluster)
Distance between systems: (Between each system in the cluster)
Distance between clusters: (between each cluster)
Checkbox, Randomly place asteroid fields? (To add asteroid fields throughout the map, adds 1 for every 4 systems in the map)
Checkbox, randomize systems? (Returns randomness to the systems generated, but keeps cluster sizes and distances)
At very least the cluster size so we can set an amount of systems we both get and fight over. Maybe, even move the quazar star system, up above so that it's not in with any cluster at all.
Oh, and I like things flat, I don't want to be flying up and down to get to systems, I already don't use any other map types because of the camera controls.
So a flatten map option would be nice unless you have it generate flat by default.
So, is this an easy thing to do? Would someone be able / willing to make a map like this for me?
