The above is the first screen of the master program. From this screen you can select which of the 12 host / player slots will be used. Currently slot 8 is selected. It has both the host and player sides of the filled with active game data. You will need to clear both the player and host slots before you can make a new universe in this slot. The red lights show all the slots that can not be used.
Slot number 4 and slot number 7 both have two green lights. These slots are both empty and can be used for a new game universe.
You will need a map for the game, you can use the standard Echo cluster, the Zeta Galaxy map or a custom map file. You can also use a planets script file instead of the standard master program.
You will next go through a series of screens that allows you to choose different setup options.
Master will accept command line options that can be used to automatically generate a new YIG file based on a script file:
Master Command line options:
/O = Overwrite
/X = Auto exit master
Also see the map compiler program to make your own map
Also see the script sample file
