Hi all, thanks for checking out the Planetary Rings by Slider17

For all you map editors/creators out there, here’s some eye candy to spice up those battlefields!  

Features:
 · Includes 9 different kinds of rings with installation instructions
 · No interference with ships or normal construction zones
 · New mini-map icon
 · Gentle rotation through space 

(And if you don’t mind editing the odf files...)
 · Resizable no-warp zone
 · Adjustable ring diameter 
   (no-warp zone and ring size are independently adjustable)
 · Planet gravity
 · Many other options you may want to explore

Recommended usage:
 · Place the rings on any uninhabitable planet.  Colonies won’t work on ringed planets, so class J is advisable.*
 · Keep the vertical height at zero.  When the map is loaded, they default to it.
 · Play with the pitch and roll of the rings.
 · Build around the rings, the orbital stations have no problem, nor do the freighters.  Plus, the cinematic window will sometimes show some stunning views!
