City Lights!
« on: January 16, 2015, 10:49:10 PM »
Actually I was trying to test out a trinary star system and spawned a planet with a moon, eventually the moon turned out to be 2x the size of the earth and has liquid water in its surface.

I tried to recreate the iss missions and added up " Phobos " as the iss and it circled the moon

I did not notice later city lights appeared and I  was shocked !

SO when i closed the simulation the entire system changed into something else ( this is because of the beta ) so ? do you have any ideas on how to recreate city lights?

I'm surprised you managed to create a celestial objects with life forms on it, it's rare now and day's and they never really stay the same because the save save setting needs tuning..sorry about that

I know, but the experience was unimaginable

I didn't have trouble creating city lights or life on my planets before Alpha 9 or 10.  Back then, you could create a planet with an average temp ranging between 50 and -75 degrees Celsius and still create city lights instantly.  Since then I have been having trouble creating the perfect conditions for life to spawn.  In fact, I haven't even been able to create life since then at all.  Is there some new improvement?  Perhaps placing organics?  Or leaving time to life to sufficiently evolve?

I dunno I spawned a random planet and it had lights but they faded away when I increased the sea level

It depends on which version you're running US2 on. They added city lights in alpha 10 or 11.
