I'm guessing Fatum = Fatal/Dangerous, Nautae = Nature/Water/Sea.
Now I have that out there, I'm going to download it. Could do with a new map.

Fatum as in fate? In that case "fateful seas" makes sense.

Anyway, YGMDL for sheer suspense.

Fate Sailor or Sea of Fate.

That said, it's a good enough map.

Sailor's Fate. Those Romans and their crazy sentence structure... :)

By sailor do you mean spaceship pilot? I mean, it's not like there's a Latin word for that is there? So it could mean [rather than directly translate as] traveller's fate.

I like the use of red rock to make that large cliff-face. Softer rock weathers fastest, so it looks more natural from a geological perspective.

Mirefrost is right; it's "fate of the sailor," or "sailor's fate."

Make a new texture for it then. Or find one that works with CC already. You don't have to just settle with what you're given, that's what CC is all about.

Also, I think you'll find the default texture is even more horrible.

Just had a look in Base, and from what I can make out in Materials.ini, The texture can be any size. Take a look at this:
Code:
AddMaterial = Material
   Index = 16
   PresetName = Dense Red Earth
   Bounce = 0.1
   Friction = 0.85
   StructuralIntegrity = 50
   DensityKGPerVolumeL = 2.0
   GibImpulseLimitPerVolumeL = 15
   GibWoundLimitPerVolumeL = 0.1
   Priority = 10
   SettleMaterial = 51
   Color = Color
      R = 120
      G = 55
      B = 32
   TextureFile = ContentFile
      Path = Base.rte/Scenes/Textures/RockRed.bmp


Recreate that code under an undefined index [say 15], give it a new name, change the colour slightly [and in the scene materials .bmp] and then choose a new texture.

Put all that into your index before the scene.

Sounds interesting by all these comments, but a picture would be nice. I don't normally download without a preview of the item I am downloading, take this into consideration as there are probably people like me and you are missing out on sharing your masterpiece... or is it? I can't tell because there's no picture!

Edit: It's pretty easy to take, just download "fraps" free trial or something.

Hmm... my little Latin knowledge tells me that Viri is most definitely green.

The obvious translation to Servus [and probably the one google translates it to] is serving or servant, but that makes no sense... and I have it on good word from my close friend that Servus can mean to protect or preserve.

So er... my best guess is "Protected Green".

I would guess serving/slave men- clones?

As for the AI zones thing, it's to do with your map not being XWrapped.
You'll need a bit of Lua to force dropships into their designated landing zones.
