When I download 3DO ROMs in winrar format and unzipped them and put them in the RretroArch emulator, the unzipped file can't be found. I put the games in the folder named ROMs, start the emulator but there are not showing the games I put in the folder. what is the problem RetroArch doesn't support 3DO ROMs or something else.

*Jumping peppers* this is exactly the *special sauce* I was looking for.

Not without knowing exactly what you need.  
Like, do you want one in a star system that has no relation to the plot or do you want to add in starbases for races that don't have them?
I ask because, for the most part, all the planets and moons are procedurally generated by default except for plot specific code that overrides it.

It's much easier to plunk new objects down if you can piggyback off of the plot code like I did in MegaMod.
Saves from having to create new .c/.h files and remembering to tie them into the makefile structure for both GCC and Visual Studio.

Probably would be easier to explain by adding a starbase to a star completely at random then you showing you the work.

I'll be back in about an hour, maybe more depending on how detailed I want to get.

EDIT:

I'll also add comments to code to explain what I'm changing

UPDATE:

This github commit details the basics on how to add a destroyed Starbase to a star system along with planetary ruins and unique lander reports for both.
For purposes of my own I used the Microscopii star system

...they attempted theft and the destruction of online communities who objected...

Which communities did they destroy?

They did say "attempted", and the legal relief requested in Stardock's legal filings did include an injunction that could have required the UQM project to shut down.  That's enough to count, IMHO.

[EDIT]: Parsed a little more closely, the 'attempted' might be read to apply only to 'theft' and not 'destruction', but that may be a little too pedantic of a parse.  In any event, no actual community destruction occurred.

You said I had to make an exception in the code? I was wondering if you could be more specific about that part?

I became sooo invested in the Stardock vs. the two creators of the original Star Control game series lawsuit. As a former Stardock enthusiast, I'm now disgusted by all they've done. Essentially, they attempted theft and the destruction of online communities who objected, which is a sick thing to do as such a significant entity. They also lied about it, saying Fred Ford and Paul Reiche and the original Star Control creators. Pfft, yeah, right. I stopped using Stardock and spending money on it after reading an article on https://ndandp.co.uk/insolvency-claims/misfeasance-claims/ about what they're using this money for.

Hot damn...was hoping for them to "throw us a bone", but this is even more than I've expected! Can't wait for the new forums to go live, UQM discussion will spring back to life like it hasn't in almost a decade  Grin
