How to make new resources?!


Recommended Posts

Hello. I want to make a new resource but I don't know what all these numbers mean.

Spoiler

RESOURCE_DEFINITION
{
  name = Ore
  displayName = #autoLOC_501007 //#autoLOC_501007 = Ore
  abbreviation = #autoLOC_6002103 //#autoLOC_6002103 = Ore
  density = 0.010
  unitCost = 0.02
  flowMode = ALL_VESSEL
  transfer = PUMP
  hsp = 1000
  isTweakable = true
  color = 1,0,1
  volume = 5
  RESOURCE_DRAIN_DEFINITION
  {
    isDrainable = true
    showDrainFX = true
    drainFXPriority = 9
    drainForceISP = 5
    drainFXDefinition = particlesDraining
  }
}

What is hsp, volume and color? Thanks for helping!

Color looks to be an optional mod added extension. Not sure what mods might use it. Probably for the coloured indicators in some fuel switch modules? Looking at CRP only a few resources define anything for color and the values look pretty arbitrary to me (they're RGB values in the range 0, 0, 0 to 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 - the Ore definition you gave is 1, 0, 1 or pure magenta 100% red + 100% blue).

Actually I believe this color is used by the stock resource scanner planetary overlay. Note that the Ore config has color = 1,0,1 which is purple, which is the color of the Ore overlay.
