well, shoot.  I might actually do one more update to Taanab.

Just learned how to draw the hex farm the way I'd truly envisioned it (I think).

It's mostly about those plants growing underwater.  The easy way to undo that was not as easy as I thought, and tester consensus was that it was a very minor issue.

It's really hard to get the terrain to draw precisely down to the single meter range - and of course it only displays with all graphics options turned up to begin with...   it can be done - but the hex farm reveals some of the limitations.

I'm learning quite a bit sitting down here with Hoth.  Starting it out right from the ground up, utilizing environments and lighting ramps better...   I have grabbed and integrated the NGE assets for Echo Base, Wampas, etc...

This is the part I love - scouring books and wikis and learning as much as I possibly can about Hoth, and filling all that empty space...
Very nice new project. But for your Hoth, how do you make a a Echo Base ? You create new building ? 
I'm really interested in this.

He's using the Echo Base model from the NGE heroic encounter.

Ah ok.
I said that, because for my project, i must create new model, i think.
But isn't time or place for speak on this subject. 
Thanks.

Awesome Job! Keep up the good work!
You should check out his Hoth too.  Very impressive.
You're all so nice :p

Taanab is getting a slight upgrade and bug fix in the Hoth package.

Hoth is still getting detailed...  Taanab was made using mostly pre-CU assets... but Hoth is a hefty, complex package.  I know I said in the OP that it would be stripped down, just to get the terrain out there... but I just can't do a half-job.

  We had a very rocky start to our testing at Choice, but hope to get it all stable again by the weekend, so regardless of my full release, should be accessible publicly at some point again soon.

Question - has anyone had any problems with the Watto's Junk Shop at the hex farms? We encountered an odd issue tonight going in/coming out whereas the server started choking on our characters until we teleported off Taanab.

ERROR - trying to transfer an object with null zone.

Hey I know that this hasn't been posted on for over a year, but can anyone help me with this? I'm trying to add this my server, and I pasted the bins as well as the tres and new cfg in the swg folder. Tanaab shows up on the map, but it does not show the city to travel to, and thus, I cannot travel there. Any help is appreciated! Thanks a ton!

Did you write/modify the startports/shuttleports in planet_manager.lua?. I you didn't you just can travel there using /teleport command.

Taanab (greatly expanded on since the original post) and everything I have created since then are now a part of Sunrunner 2 - swgsunrunner2.com - if you are interested in planets, it's worth a visit to our public test or Discord.
