Sol System Expanded

This small mod adds a couple of extra bodies to the Sol system:

- Titania, largest moon of Uranus
- Pluto, dwarf planet
- Charon, largest moon of Pluto
- Eris, dwarf planet

There are also some optional starting options:
- with extra moons and trans-Neptunian objects, basically all known objects in our solar system with a mean diameter of at least 1000km should be included
- Planet Nine
- Mars as a desert planet

You need to edit your starting race before starting a new game, and set your starting solar system as one of the new options for this to take effect.

A 25 tile Earth version can be found here:

Hi, I'd like permission to use your mod in a mod of mine.

Hans, Lion is the author of this mod...he knows what you mean and how to fix it better than I do, as shown below. Thanks for responding to me, though..very polite. Thanks to you, Lion, for the wonderful mod.

The game will take the copy instead of the default one when you start a new game.

@elhran, I have to make a duplicate of UN of Earth and I can't just overwrite them with Sol Expanded because they are built into the game, which is annoying.

@Hans: Best way to do that is to copy the default UNE ingame and change their starting solar system.

So, before starting a new game, select the default United Nations of Earth and click the edit button. Go to "Homeworld - Name & Class", and change the Starting Solar System to the version you like, e.g. Sol System Expanded (Extra Moons & TNOs). Now you have to save it, and click the Back button. Click on the bird icon next to the copy of your United Nations of Earth a couple of times now until the tooltip says Empire Spawning Forced.

Next time you start a new game only your new copy of the AI UNE will spawn, and they'll use your prefered version of Sol.

Hans, what do you mean?
Super Hans Oct 23, 2016 @ 8:49pm 
Can you make it so that The United Nations of Earth has the extra celestial bodies? I have to make a duplicate and I'd rather not do that.

Still works fine for me....with Heinlien....

I don't think this mod needs to be updates, as it only adds a few extra celestial bodies to the game.
