Version - Beta

  • Disables meteors from spawning when no player is on the server
  • Can enable/disable meteor showers while running
  • Options in SEServerExtender including maximum meteor size and multipliers for velocity and max velocity.
  • Default Configuration can be changed by editing PhysicsMeteroid-Settings.xml in the mod folder.
  • Per Sector configuration saved in your worlds save folder.
  • Custom meteor events, no longer deletes KSH meteors unless no players are on the server. Disable environmental hazards to prevent KSH meteors from spawning
  • Meteoroid swarms only target online players
  • Meteoroid swarms will compensate for the target's velocity

Turrets will no longer fire on 'meteors'. But will fire on moving objects.
These meteors do count against the floating object limit of the server, people mining may end up deleting the meteor swarm
Having automatic cleanup enabled may delete the meteors before they can impact targets.
