Can't get ships to appear in a system
Okay, so, I'm trying to write a TC of rather generous proportions. But a lot of the developers out there suggest starting small (like plug packs) and work up to the TC level. Fine.
I found myself potting asteroids one day and decided to create: Nova 'Roids!
Just an asteroid type game using the engine. And so far, it's taught me a lot.
However, In both endevours, I'm having the very same issue. ships don't appear in any system I create.
The asteroids game is a bit of a TC itself since I wanted to use different systems as the various "levels" of the game. So I created a fairly simplistic spiral starmap. The first level is the easy, asteroids-only, type. The second level is the "save" system with a place to land. Next system is a bit harder, etc.
Thing is, I decided to have "aliens" shooting at the rocks (like in the original game) but I can't get them to appear. I tried placing Krypt, (using my own ship and dude, but the default shan) and the darn things won't appear.
I looked at some of the Krypt systems in the main game. I split everything into 25 percent pieces (rather than one at 100%) everything looks exactly the same. Yet, I can't get any ships to appear.
Side Note: I discovered the 'char' resource that set up the initial character. Such a little trivial thing does so much. I'm thinking I might be missing something similar (like a desc perhaps?).
