[nbos] Astro sector generator feedback
NBOS Support
Fri Dec 11th, 2009
Hi All,

I'm seeking some feedback on Astro2's sector generator. What sort of
enhancements/changes would you like to see? New types of
objects? Particular new data fields? Are there any glaring
technical/scientific issues to whats being generated?

Before you answer, here's a couple items already implemented or planned for
the next version:

- The generator now runs in the background. This means you can zoom/pan
around the map while the generator runs, and makes the program a lot more

- The generator has a new option to create a specific number of
systems. So rather than giving a sector size, you can tell it to make 1000
stars, and it will start generating from the center and expand out until
1000 are made.

- There'll be a new terraforming slider to control how much terraforming is
done. It'll range from 0 to 10, with 0 being no terraforming being done,
all the way to 10, basically sticking an Earth-like planet in every system.

- Based on new exoplanet discoveries, I'll be tweaking terrestrial planet
generation to allow for much larger terrestrial planets than can be
generated now.

So let me have it! Any and all feedback would be appreciated!
