Mars Theme

For those of us out there who want a civilisation on Mars, I hope this helps you out.

This theme has realistic Mars temperatures for the Snow Fall DLC. So temperatures can go down to -73C at night and up to only 20C in the daytime. So ye be warned, it's a tad chilly.

I'm making this theme as accurately as I can, with a little artistic liberty thrown in for good measure of course. With that in mind these are the main differences from a typical (Earth) map theme:

- Small Sun (to account for increased distance)
- Two small moons, Deimos and Phobos, instead of our Moon.
- Red skies and blue sunrises/sunsets.
- New textures for the terrain, to give it that Mars feel.
- Temperatures from -73C at night to 20C in the daytime.

Maps I have created using this theme so far:

- Mars Crater Lake
With more maps on the way. Suggestions welcome.

Please let me know if you use this theme to make a new map, as I would love to see how it's been used.

Hmm, very strange indeed. Have you tried starting a new game with my Mars map and this theme enabled? does it appear green on that?

yeah, going that route. i mean I've played around with the editor, just never themes.
Tried re subcribing and following this advice, and can't seem to get it to show the red rocky terrain. The visibiliity and sun look alright, but everything is still grassy.

glad to hear you want to try your hand at map making with my theme! Just to check are you going to Tools at the main menu, map editor, new, user themes making sure the "Mars Theme" is centered/selected and pressing create? It should start you off in a map with that as the theme.

here's a link to the official wiki about map making as a helpful little guide to get you going too.

If it still doesn't work, make sure you've tried re-subscribing to the if you haven't already. Hope that helps.

Alright so question then, if I wanted to make custom maps using this theme, how would I do that? I've subscribed to this and have made sure that it is enabled, as well as when I go to make the map, I select it from the user themes. Anything I'm doing wrong? Sorry, kind of new to the map editing.

Also, this is a map theme, not an actual map. If that's the issue you're having, then download this map, made specifically for this theme:

could be that an update to the base game has caused this, I'll look into it ASAP. Meanwhile, try unsubscribing and subscribing to it again to see if it was a just a bad download.

So I can't seem to get this to work. The map appears green and nothing at all like Mars. Suggestions?

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!
