[nbos] [AS] Plugin Scripting

Sun May 6th, 2007

first of all, thanks for this very nice tool, I bought it today :-).

Is there somewhere a documentation about how to write own Plugins? I have searched but haven't found them so far. So in the blog there there is a API already.

And furthermore what language is it, so I can search for references in the internet.

Maybe you can also help me in writing a specific script and comment it so I can enhance it by my own. Only to understand the basics.

I would like to write some scripts which do the following:

* generates a specific amount of stars (and i mean only stars, no nebulas, multiple stars or other objects) in a sector.
* generation of star names but without the cryptic ones e.g. Sxxxxxx
* generation of system content where I can specify more, like, how many planets and which kind.

and last one, don't know how to do this.

* generation of a specific amount of stars in form of a spiral galaxy. Is something possible? I thought about to combine multiple sectors but haven't the experience to do that. e.g. one sphere in the middle with a huge amount of stars. A second sector, a cube with a smill height where the first sector the sphere is located in the middle. Ah it's hard to describe in words, I hope you know what I wat to say :-).

Help would be really appreciated.

Regards, Michael
