Trouble with big distances

Post by spara » Sun Aug 31, 2014 5:55 pm

As reported here: http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f= ... 19#p226760, the game freezes with In-System Traders OXP in cooperation with Distant Planets OXP. The reason is the huge distance of the sun and the use of

Code: Select all

location: "OUTER_SYSTEM_OFFPLANE"
in setPopulator.

Ah - because OUTER_SYSTEM_OFFPLANE positions must be both further from the sun than the planet is, and also no more than 10^7 metres from the sun, which becomes impossible if the sun distance multiplier exceeds around 150 in a system with a large planet, or around 330 in a system with a small planet.

I'll fix that now.
