  •   Procedurally Generated Asteroids – part 2

    6/12/10 - 19:08

    Time for some hard numbers :) All asteroids have a certain number of spawns, and these spawns vary by the type of asteroid it is. I thought it would be cool to post the current information, these are the values that are actually in game right now – I will be using it as a basis for the future asteroid generation :)

    Just to explain this first table – First is ore name, next is if it is a real material – or made up by me :), followed by its price in solaris, followed by which roid it spawns in ( a 1 indicates the ore spawns on that ), rarity is something which isn’t used yet, but gives you an idea of how rare I want the ore to be.

    Now for a detailed break down of each asteroid, metal, crystal and active – all of these are pretty self explanatory, so no need to explain each one. First, metal roids :

    As you can see the average ore worth are all similar – when I created the three roid system, I wanted to get it out straight away – so the balance was just approximated – but it seems pretty good to me :)  Active roids have the largest variation in ores spawned.  Metal Roids have the largest number of spawns but are worth the less – maybe this is why it is mined the most? Still haven’t figured that out.

    Ideally I think I need to create some more metal ores, and then reduce number of spawns on metal roids to bring them in line with the other two. I also have plans for two other asteroid types – Ice and Radioactive. These two roid types would need special equipment before you can mine them – and will be dangerous environments to mine in ;) Again, I will need to create extra ores for them.

    With the procedural generation of asteroids, these numbers won’t remain constant, different roid sizes and masses will alter the make up – a small roid with a large mass might contain heavier metal ores on it. A large roid with a lower mass might have a much large number of lighter ores spawned on it.
