Way cool. I'm on it. But, I make absolutely no promises when it will be done. Sometime before 2020. Maybe. Though likely I will get 90% complete like most of my projects and abandon it.

Subject: [nbos] [AS] Astro project, anyone?

Here's something I always wanted to do. I figured I'd toss the idea
in case it strikes someone's interest. has a list of all the currently known/suspected
exoplanets. They make the data available in html and csv. The data
the star, the planet, its orbital distance, mass, and orbital
Anyone want to try to import that into Astro?

The main gotcha I see is that they dont list info for the stars
in that file - they have that information in a seperate csv file. So
two would need to be merged or at least referenced. And star coord's
would also need to be converted to x/y/z coords.

I think such a map would be very cool, and be a great base for near
sci-fi campaigns. It'd probably have some real scientific value too.
