Wrong.. wel partly wrong.

One of the tests for Astro 2 that was done by myself during it's beta period
before 64 Bit machines where even a major thing on the market was to load in
the 100,000+ Ly Star Chart data that I'd done up from the various catalogs..
much to both my and Ed's surprise it actually handled it unlike Astro 1 now
that was astro 1 - 2 I've not had a chance due to illness to try it with
Astro 2 - 3 yet but later today I might.. Astro has the capability to do a
lot IF you set your settings right.

I don't think AS has the capability for an entire galaxy. In my experience,
it's better to build it out in 100 light-year chunks.

Now that would be a blessing: a tool that had capability to generate an
entire galaxy shape. Spiral arms and galactic cores for spiral galazies, and
globular clusters

What I've noticed when I try to generate a sector, is that it seems to put
all the stars in some small section of the whole area. Basically, I've
stopped using it. What I do is use an Excel sheet I've created to generate
the system info, save it as a csv and then import that to AS.

I'm working on a VBasic generator to give me more power over the process,
maybe include variables for galaxy shapes and/or age, that sort of thing.
