Quick Planet Maker!
« on: June 09, 2006, 03:18:44 pm »
I am currently making a terraforming simulation under Game Maker. However, when I say Hugg's planet generator, I saw that I only needed to change The basic program a bit to create a planet generator with visuals. So, here is my website with the Planet generator in it. You need to download the file, but it is .exe, so you don't have to do much. try experimenting with the statistics. I know that I need to make water more easy to put on your planet, bu that will be in the next version, along with any (plausible  ;) ) suggestions you post. Tell me what you think, and before saying it sucks or whatever, remember that this is a mini-program sidetrack from the main game.
I posted it here (Spore: Creation Corner) because I thought that those most interested would be from here, or something  :-\ It was a hard decision.

Here is the website:
www.freewebs.com/genesisgame
The game is under the Planet Generator link

P.S. The game's  name was decided for before Genesis (the user) joined.

EDIT: Feel free to post suggestions here or on the guestbook

EDIT EDIT: Desperate attempt to give more attention to this topic  ;D

Ah, a fellow GMer! Cool little program, how does it implement all the stuff in the beginning?
Some tips: The info about the planet needs to have a seperate box or something so that it doesn't cover the planet surface. Houses and stuff was created on top of it. Distance from sun needs a bug fix, the text was screwed up when the values were too high. A simple way of getting back to the menu(a button or something) would be appreciated. Oh, and how does the game know how to make oceans in the same place? This is interesting, tell me your secrets!  ;)

If by the menu you mean the settings, then press F11. I know about the km. bug and its an easy fix, but I was too lazy to implemet it right away (I was hoping nothing bad would happen) ;D And I'll try to put a box for it. Other than that, thanks for the comments! I'll see if I can send you a PM w/ the Gamemaker file with it, Huggkruka.

Version 1.1 will be put on the site tomorrow. It will include:
*The km. bug fix
*The Box hugg suggested
*Better chance of a water on the planet (hard to explain)

Also, any pixel art for creatures would be appreciated! For example, if the planet's dominant species is amphibian, I'll use a 16*16 picture of a Naucean.

It's only a matter of time before Sporepedia has a highpopulation than the Earth, and when that day comes, there will be much rejoicing.

i suck at pixel art, but if you wanted to get someone else to do torpals, you could have some mammals  :)

Icthians for fish.

This could quickly turn into a "my creature too" thread.

You could have sapient plants in SimEarth, what's the problem? And they'd still have normal timelines, right? What's so vague about it? (unless the online translator gave me the wrong answer ;D)

EDIT: I see... "freewebs". I think it's blocked.
