Clownagent, there is a small problem with the SIETCH tileset: tile 50 should have movement cost of 255, but it's 4 instead. This is causing crashes due to pathfinding.

Thanks for spotting. I will fix it for the next version.

Clownagent, how about posting it in the portal?

Portal doesn't work... posting here is the best option we have.

Since the mod looks borderline playable now, I finally decided to try it. Gotta say, it is more playable than I expected. I like it a lot. The attention to detail really shines in every aspect of it.

I have a minor suggestion. There was an option somewhere to make city and region names visible at different level of zoom than default. Since Dune is a far less busy planet than Earth, making these labels visible at lower zoom than default would add to the experience IMO.

Nice idea, but the ruleset does not allow control over all labels.

As far as I understood:
- Custom globe labels (introduced by Meridian) can have any zoom level (I use these as region labels)
- Zoom level of country labels cannot be changed
- Zoom level of cities can be changed according to the wiki, but I have no idea how. If anybody knows, please post an example.

From the wiki:
"Mission zone 3 defines cities belonging to a region ([lon1, lat1, lon2, lat2, -1, STR_CITY_NAME]). They will be displayed on the globe and used for terror site missions. Cities can also have a zoom setting which determines the appearance of its name label according to the specified zoom level."

No such thing exists.
Somebody got too creative when writing it...

This was added by me but some time ago was removed after that in some refactoring of regions.

Is this mod still alive? I played it some time before, and it was so cool, but I don't see anything more added.

I stopped working on the mod some time ago. There will probably be no update anytime soon.

If anyone likes to pick up the mod and develop it further, feel free to do so.
