Terraforming Mars?

Hello, I'm new to the forum and I just discovered your wonderful program. I'm enjoying it very much and I'm just wondering if there is anyway I could terraform Mars.

There's actually a fully terraformed solar system you can activate by going into config/universe.cfg and commenting out "catalogs/planets/SolarSys.sc" and uncommenting //"catalogs/planets/SolarSys3000.sc" (by adding those slashes to the one and removing them from the other).

You can also do it yourself to Mars by changing its class to Terra and removing the entries describing its normal map (but leaving the ones that refer to the bumpmap).

I did a custom Mars for 0.97 that also works in the most recent version.

Edit:

the life tag needs to be removed if you want to use it in 0.9.7.1 and needs to be replaced with the updated life section in the catalog file. Just copy Earth's.

You can get the system info from this thread

Surface
{
// Surface map author: John van Vliet
DiffMap "Mars/Surface"
//DiffMap "Mars/Surface-old"
DiffTileSize 514
DiffTileBorder 1
DiffMapAlpha "None"

BumpMap "Mars/Bump"
BumpTileSize 514
BumpTileBorder 1
BumpHeight 29.457 // 21249 + 8208
BumpOffset 8.208

Exposure 1.5
}

Bolded the tags relating to the textures, italicised the stuff about the bump map.

Removing the bold stuff by itself would switch the planet to using procedural textures. If you want to have a terraformed appearance, you would need to do some more work, or use the script linked above.

Curiously Mercury is a satellite of Venus, Ceres is a satellite of Mars, the Moon appears to be much farther away than it should be (though I haven't actually checked), and Jupiter weighs 317 solar masses in Solar System 3000. Good luck landing on Europa. cool

Yeah, SolarSys3000 is a little weird, but cool nonetheless. And you can change it to have the future Solar System look as you think it should.
