Default More asteroids

Hi, I have a question about the whole modding thing:

Is it possible to add more asteroids (i.e. custom asteroids) through modding?
I mean, it's kind of getting repetetive with all the same asteroids everywhere, so would it be possible to add some more?
Not sure though.

Cheers,
S

It is possible (and it is already done), 10 asteroids can be added to the game to a total of 20 different asteroids. But I'm not quite satisfied with the models, but I just don't have enough time to finish them. But, after all, they all look the same. I can't tell which ones are mine and which Egosoft .

Sweet, I have one request:

Can there be one HUGE asteroid (even bigger than the subtype 6 asteroid), please??

I could use an asteroid like that in the system I'm working on right now.

Thanks,
S

Ok, I see what I can do. But it will take a while.

How much bigger do you want it?

Ummm, not quite sure.

But big, something that people would just think it's a part of the sector background until they fly up to it.

Maybe something about this size:

Or do you think that's too big?

I think this asteroid is about the same size as asteroid type 6.
Well I try it out.

But don't get to deep in placing asteroids all over the sector. The asteroids get placed by scripts when you start a new game. I personally love asteroids scattered over the sectors. That's one of the few things of X3 I love: the asteroid fields. I believe I want to have many asteroids on almost all of the sectors.
But that's my kind of setting, and my comp's powerful enough to handle this. Other people don't want it. That's why I decided to make a few things configurable, the number of asteroids, stuff like that (you know what I'm talking about ).
