Re: [nbos] AstroSynthesis 3 Search facility, etc.

2300 uses a slightly modified version of the gliese number. It also used
the gleise 2 catalogue (gliese 3 came out after the game).

There were a couple of errors in the Near
Star List. Furthermore, GDW didn't use any particular coordinate system for
the data. They spun it round in Macspin until none of the stars overlapped.

I looked into using an established catalogue (gliese 2 being the obvious
one) to use in astrosynthesis for 2300ad, but the problems were great
enough that I decided it was easier to manually type the near star list
into a spreadsheet manually.

I'm about halfway through that, I think.
