In SystemTypes.txt, there are "Same As X" and "Offset X, Y" positions that you can use for this purpose. Look at how moons are set up using "Offset X, Y" for examples. If you set the Y value to 0, the moon would end up in the same hex as the parent planet. Be aware that multiple objects in the same hex can cause rendering issues, such as object clipping.

Object clipping is funny sometimes. Razz I especially like how it looks to have a tiny planet inside an asteroid field. Smile

I like to use Offset X Ring Y. X being the object number to offset from, and y the distance.

It's easy to tweak it to change it a bit. "Same As" works, but it's not as versatile.

This is an example of hiding a planet in an asteroid field, but the same principle applies:

Code:

Obj 4 Physical Type                              := Asteroids
Obj 4 Position                                   := Circle Radius 200, 240
Obj 4 Stellar Abil Type                          := Normal Asteroids
Obj 4 Specific Stellar Obj Name                  := Any
Obj 4 Size                                       := Any
Obj 4 Atmosphere                                 := Any
Obj 4 Composition                                := Any
Obj 24 Physical Type                             := Planet
Obj 24 Position                                  := Same As 4
Obj 24 Stellar Abil Type                         := Normal Planet
Obj 24 Specific Stellar Obj Name                 := Any
Obj 24 Size                                      := Tiny
Obj 24 Atmosphere                                := None
Obj 24 Composition                               := Any

Could you please not ask the same questions in multiple threads? Thanks!

What does this question mean? What data file lines are you referring to?

what i meant galactic guru was if i increased the default 1,000 stellar objects to say maybe 1,500-2,000 what would that do? does that increase the number of objects in a givin system or quadrant? thats all Smile

Everything before the *BEGIN* line, and after the *END* line, in the data files is treated as a comment. That line is not read or used by the game in any way.
