    Using the Future Mod "Solar System" map script I was able to substitute in our terrains with theirs and generate 5 different maps in one map. Note this is not multi-maps.

    Included are Earth, Luna, Mars, Venus, and Europa. Note they do not have all the types of terrains possible. This is also the first time I edited a map script so I am bound to get something wrong.

    If anyone wants to help make this map better, such as allowing for all types of terrains for Earth, Luna and Mars please make it happen.

    Like all map script they go in the mod's Private Maps folder.

    Hopefully this can help us test out other terrains before multi-maps come out.

    Enjoy! :goodjob:

    Maybe this is solution.

    Generate one map for all five planets and switch between them via viewports.

    Nota that in this case current viewports will be something like viewport of viewport of earth part of the map. In that case there are no problem vith turn synchronization between the planets.

    Not really. I just substituted in names of our terrain with their per-existing map script. Such as where theirs said TERRAIN_MARS I put in TERRAIN_MARTIAN_BARREN. Through trial and error I replaced most of what I think is right. However there are still some tags that were not replaced and just don't show up because no such terrain or terrain feature exists in our mod.

    Thus if we are going to seriously think of adding this to the core mod we will need to support al the types of terrains on the 3 main maps. Such as Earth having all types of Earth terrains and Mars having all types of Martian terrains.

    I'm sorry, I'm a little out of the loop. How is it possible to move from one planet to the next?

    It isn't yet, someone needs to figure out the Python so as to switch between maps.

    Well since space uses coastal-like tiles I suppose you could use them like boats to cross space to the other lands at the poles. But yeah there is no other way in place like the multi-maps would do.
