Hello,

I was wondering if there is a post with size of all the planets? I guess I could just go to each planet and view the map.

I was thinking this would help determining which .WS to start with for a new planet, looking for the smallest planet....

BTW, I can't say this enough, super stuff everyone is doing and the Q&A is helping me get motivated to fire up the DEV environment!

Thanks All!

I think all the main planets are 16x16km. Hoth was in theory the smallest? Along with the other 'new' and experimental planets.

With SIE and the templates, you can check yourself though! If you go into a .TRN and look at the first DATA chunk, it'll be the first value after Terrain File, so for terrain/10.trn for example, it would be 4096.

Happy to see people be motivated and eager! :)
