I'm trying to make a GC, but I'm finding the normal XML way of placing planets to be tedious and hard. I'm a perfectionist, so I'm constantly going ingame, checking where the planet is, closing the game, making changes, and going back in. And as you can imagine that gets real old, real fast, when you have to do it for every planet. So I'm wondering, is there a program for FOC, where you can just place the planet on a screen of the galaxy, and it will tell you what the corrdinants are?

There is one, but it's not FoC compatible yet.

Ummm Slayer, I have a map I'm basing my layout off of. But it's tedious placing them ingame, going through the xml and typing the coords, so I want a program that'll tell me their location, makes it easier.

Use Z3r0x's planet position plotter, get it from everythingeaw.com

It doesn't code in the planet for you, but you can find the coordinates for the part of the galaxy you want.

Ok thanks, not sure how this will work with my larger galaxy disk (I had to increase the size since I'm adding a lot more planets) but it's better then nothing, thank you for showing it to me.

Edit: Bah, this doesn't work for me. It's too small compared to my GC. Oh well

Multiply the coordinates it gives you by the scale of your galactic map. Thats what I did.

I'm still new to EAW coding, I wont risk doing something like that, knowing me I'd make soooo many mistakes lol. Plus I'm not even sure what I should multiply the coordinates by.

Well, if you scaled the galactic map up by two, then take the coordinates and multiply then by two...

For example:

(-150, 200) would become (-300,400) if your scale was two...

Would increasing the scale make it harder to access planets? Like, if you doubled the scale, you're doubling the distance between planets........ so it'd cut some hyperspace routes off, right?
