Space Traders – Entire Universe of variables. (Spreading Invention)

Total Planets: 914 _ Total Elements: 118 _ Total Inventions: 1882 _._._

Map contains a functioning Dialog to Query all of the planets and elements. I did not factor in the Inventions due to laziness. To query the inventions for planets, you crosslink the available elements on the planet with the elements required for the invention. This was my intention, but of course you can do with it as you like.

The inventions are from very early fiction future dreamers, it tops off at mid around 2004. All data used in this map can be found on Wikipedia.

You don’t have to use everything from the map. It’s all separated nicely. So you can use just the planets and elements if you like, or the inventions, elements, planets on their own.

This Map has 18,746 lines of Galaxy Script.

I am not currently making a game with this. But I see so much value in it, for someone who can take it to the next level. A functional, Playable Map, Elements have Cost, and they are cheap, Invention have Cost and they are expensive. The concept for my map was a space trader game. You buy and sell minerals until you can afford inventions. Then buy and sell invention. You can only buy minerals if the plant has them, and you can only sell them to planets that don’t have them. The concept and math I was using for my game was to add multipliers. Inventions can have 1-4 element requirements to make them. For each element the planet does not have, a multiplier would be added to the selling price. Elements would be straight trade X2 the cost. Inventions that cost 800, and require 4 minerals, would have a maximum of 4000 selling price. This is the math applied to the Costing, and spreading of minerals/inventions. A planet has a minimum of 1 and maximum of 30 elements that can be found on it. With over 900 planets, it allows for each player to develop their own style of play.

Example of the Data:
gv_planetValues[0] = "Mass";
gv_planetValues[1] = "EquatorialDiameter";
gv_planetValues[2] = "OrbitalRadius";
gv_planetValues[3] = "OrbitalPeriod";
gv_planetValues[4] = "OrbitalEccentRicity";
gv_planetValues[5] = "InclinationtoSunsEquator";
gv_planetValues[6] = "RotationPeriod";
gv_planetValues[7] = "Moons";
gv_planetValues[8] = "Rings";
gv_planetValues[9] = "DistanceAway";
gv_planetValues[10] = "PlanetElements";

gv_planets[769] = "Tarsus III";
DataTableSetFixed(true, "Tarsus IIIEquatorialDiameter", 9.07);
