Map features are the bits and bobs that give maps more bling, such as rocks, trees, etc.
All features on a map are listed in the set.lua
The features themselves are complex enough to warrant their own set of pages.
- Spring Features is a mod archive filled with useful objects.
- FeaturePlacer is an ingame tool to help with adding features to your map.
Feature maps are a single RGB image where features such as grass, geothermal vents and trees, as well as structures, etc were "placed" using pixels on the image. This method was extremely imprecise and involved recompiling the map many times in order to simply move a tree from one location to another. They are still used for the purpose of placing grass
