Sure. I'm talking mainly about population distribution, not physical aspects.

As I've said in the previous messages, it's not an "odd" result, it's
quite a few. I would not have said a word if one system had a weird
population distribution, but at least on the sector I generated, many
do (in the double-digits percentaje).

Well, as a counter-argument, AS3 is not trying to model victorian or
future science, but current one. So deviations from current knowledge
are either bugs, or unexpected oddities.
