Map Creation Bugs/Glitches

To get this ball rolling...

Each custom map seems to have a different maximum amount of stars it can handle (the map isn't loaded if a certain number of stars or more is selected). This seems to be linked to how much of a margin (free space inside the picture but to either side of the actual content) each map has. Anyone found a solution to this?

Hi! I have tried to fix this problem in the next version. If you want to be part of the PC Beta testing version give me a ping and you could have access to it this weekend :)

Re: Map Creation Bugs/Glitches

When trying to create custom names for regions of maps maps, the names keep interpreting coordinates of other names as part of their own names:

Here, the names are supposed to be "hello" and "test"

The code looks like this:
0.10000000000000000,0,Test0.10000000000000000,0.1,Hello0.30000000000000000,0,Krill

Edit: There is apparently an invisible symbol between the word and number that can be copied over from the "earthcountries" file. Still not sure what though

Hi! Can you attach your locations file here, or email it to me? It's important that there is a line break after each location name, e.g:

0.10000000000000000,0,Test
0.10000000000000000,0.1,Hello
0.30000000000000000,0,Krill

By the way, the most recent beta has a debug option, so if you press d to enable it, it will show the locations on the map you have pointed out in yellow, and when you tap, it will tell you the coordinates (in map format) you clicked on, as well as which location is the closest.

Re: Map Creation Bugs/Glitches

For some reason, line breaks didn't work; copying the invisible symbol did though. Also, where was the output of clicking whilst in debug mode supposed to go? You mentioned "terminal", although running the program through command prompt didn't produce any output.

Sorry for not replying earlier.
You should definintely get some output if you run it from the terminal, did you download the latest version from itch?

Re: Map Creation Bugs/Glitches

Afraid so.

Would it be possible to get the locations pasted into a text file/displayed with the in game messages?

Are you saying you get absolutely no text output to the terminal after launching galimulator.exe ?
Can you show me a screenshot? :)

This opens galimulator. Using debug mode and clicking doesn't produce any text here (although the yellow dots do appear)

Cool! I was able to see this on my windows machine as well. That's very interesting, now I need to figure out where all my text output is going :)

If I can't find it, then yeah I think something like what you suggest makes sense. For instance, you provide a list of names, then the UI prompts you to tap on where those locations are gonna be placed, then outputs a locations file for you.
