File Description

These are the new glows, which simulate a planetry atmospheres as seen the in forums a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately, the game engine prevents the glows from being added directly to the planet so they have to be added via the map editor.

You can see the effect this creates in the screenshots below.

Introduction:

You have NO permission to change the conten of this Mod.

But you are allowed to upload this Mod with your maps, and you are allowed to ADD new shines for other planets.
If you want to include this in your Mod you also have to add this readme 
and you are not allowed to change my texture and my glows.


The Copyright is by me.


Characteristics:

1. Atmospheric shine
2. Addable wherever you want to add it
3. Do not change the properties of the planets
4. Could also be used as a mark on the map


Information about this MOD:

This Mod contains Glows, 
which add an atmospheric shine to the planets in Armada II.

Because I did not want to change the properties of the planets, 
you have to add the glows manually with a map-editor


More information you can find in the category: "Model-information".

5. -Open the map-editor, accept the license-agreement and 
   press F10 for planets and F2 for standard planets.

   -Now are 12 entries available, the first is a planet, the second his shine,
   the third again a planet, the fourth again his shine etc.
   e.g. press F1 and afterwards F2 and you have a D-class planet with shine.

   -Place the planet exactly in the middle of the shine.
   If you wish to move the planet mark the planet and the shine.
   In this way are you able to add shines to the planets in your maps.
