Customizing the map

The size of the map can be çustomized while starting the game. The game comes with two hand-made maps of the Planet, but can generate new ones on the fly, depending on the built-in Planet generator.

Map size[edit | edit source]

Map area increases geometrically as horizontal and vertical sizes increase. Maps larger than 64x128 are not really recommended; maps larger than 256x256 may cause the game to "hang" indefinitely. Enormous maps which also contain huge world spanning continents are particularly problematic for performance, because of the variations created for the pathfinding code.
