    With SOA, we could build a planet from picking the sun, building the core, mantle, the crust, and atmosphere, and making it grow into a thriving planet full of life! This would be awesome for a planet editor.

    You will be able to make planets using the planet editor.
    There are no things such as orbits or other celestial bodies when you get in the game yet.
    But making stars and/or picking them and setting up a system with the planet's you (or someone) have made seems awesome.
    Now regarding temperature x distance issue, there is stuff to be talked about there.
    So you would not simply stick a frozen planet buzzing the star.

    Yeah, the temp thing would need a lot work.
    P.S. I see much of the stuff for a planet needs to be done before we can really do this.

    Maybe a general setting for a planet average temp, then within that temp there is another range based on greenhouse, and another two ranges for the variation of temp within the planet itself.
    So you would roughly set the planet position, then tune it, then set its limits, very simple IMO.

    Sounds like a great idea!

    This sounds like a great idea! We want to give modders flexibility with their worlds, but we also want to provide some realistic constraints.

    I do believe you can make your own planets right now, by poking around in the config files. However, it is quite difficult right now, so you might want to wait until the world editor gets released. It is't very easy to do right now.

    Yeah, a better way to make planets would be great.

    We will see a better way soon; Ben is working on a world editor. It's looking pretty good, you can check out the recorded dev livestreams (They're on Ben's Youtube channel) for progress reports and an insight into how Ben makes SoA.
