Re: [nbos] [AS] How could I use the next XML file? and some morequestions...

I'm no script writer but I have a feeling there is requirements specific
to AS2 that you need to include in each entry (including an ID field)
before AS can make any use of a .csv filIf you download one of Terry
Kepner's excellent "near stars" .csv's from NOX, and put them into
Excel, you'll probably see what I'm talking about.

I did a version of the StarTrek universe in AS2 for a customer and very
delighted he was with the result. Unfortunately, it was a private
contract and I don't have authority to make it available to others. But
something like this is possible if you have the necessary data.

Cheers,

Hi!

I've started to use AS-2 just a couple of weeks ago. I've found that we
can
import/export XML files and convert them into starmaps, right? Well, I
found
the next file in the web-address
http://www.projectrho.com/DuneStar3D.xls
(very interesting stuff for Dune's saga fans and SF followers, in
general).
I've converted that file into XML (and CVS, even), but it seems there's
something wrong with it 'cause, when I apply the "Import XML" plug-in
and
it's done, there's a message which says something like "no sector entry
found". What does this means? How could I fix it? May anyone here
convert
that file and post it here, in order that we fans of AS could enjoy it?
I
believe the author of the original works made great job (Mr. Andrew
Hobson,
based on a text of Mr. Joseph Daniels; both are worthy to credit and
respect
for that work).

A couple of more things: 1) since some time ago, I used other starmap
makers
like "It's full of Stars!" (very cool) or CHView (a classic one). Is
there
any way to convert the maps of those programs for using them on AS-2?
Any
hint, please?

2) Has anyone here created (or is on the work) a map for the galaxy of
Star
Wars universe for AS-2? On case, could it be posted here (or some link
to
it)?

Thanks for your help!
