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

Hi Kevin:

Just took a look at the download. I like it! Where did the info come
from to set it up? I got my data for Star Trek from Mendel's "Star
Charts". The big problem is that very few of the "main" locations are
identified with real stars and worlds even though the Trek universe is
supposed to be our universe.

I was also able to do only parts of the Alpha and Beta quadrants and a
number of locations were guesswork and inspiration from reading the ST
Encyclopaedia and ST Companion.

One of the things I did to make it look prettier and also make it easier
to navigate was to colour the various political groupings in terms of
their spheres of influence, so the Klingon Empire was red, the Romulan
purple and the Federation green.

I'm interested to follow your progress and, if you need any help with
the exercise, let me know.

Cheers,

Mike

I just posted my sketch of the star wars galaxy to Nox. It's not
much but it's a start.

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!
