Random Jumpholes

Originally posted by Rimshot

hello all,
have you ever been wondering what the difference is between a jumpgate and a jumphole?
well, short answer: there are few ..
have you ever wanted to change something here? if so, you may like what i got here.

myself i thought about a way to make jumpholes somewhat spicier, i thought it would be nice if jumpholes would be a little like wormholes.
i mean theoretically, if you "dock with" a wormhole you do not know where it`s gonna take you. (of course, theoretically there are some other aspects that come to mind as well, for ex.wormholes aren't stable -but the possibilities are limited)

this is about making random wormholes, here we go:

the main approach is to have many jumpholes with slight position offset and to make them not appear on the map (visit = 128), then add an object using wormhole effect to make it look better -and to be able to find the place again.
it`s just ini coding,
off to the required files now ..

data/solar/solararch.ini: *entry for the object using wormhole effect*


Code:

[Solar]
nickname = random_wormhole
ids_name = 1
ids_info = 1
type = NON_TARGETABLE
DA_archetype = solar\misc\gravity_buoy.3db
material_library = solar\Solar_mat_misc02.mat
LODranges = 0, 50, 100, 400, 1500, 5000
mass = 10000.000000

shape_name = NNM_SM_NAVBUOY
hit_pts = 100000000
fuse = fuse_random_wormhole, 0.000000, 100000001

data/fx/fuse.ini: *actual fuse entry, triggering the effects*


Code:
