That just refreshes the map display. There's no parameters. Useful if
you're running a process thats altering the map in some way and you want to
show the progress of the script. Also useful in animations, after you move
the camera and target point in a script. Or just use in conjunction with
the RenderMessageLarge/Small property of the sector to output text in the
top left of the screen as the script runs.

There's no problem with putting systems outside the sector bounds. Sector
Size is mainly for specifying the size of the grid and so the generator
knows how big of an area to create.
