It specifies whether or not the resultant Fractal World Explorer (FWE) map
file is saved in the \Planets directory. Generally speaking you'd use
false here. If you want to mass produce .fwe files, then use true.

I uploaded a sample that does this to NOX tonight for you. There is a func
you can use for this, GenerateGasGiantAtmTexture().

Used like:

GenerateGasGiantAtmTexture Sector, body, 512, 256

where the 512, 256 are width & hieght of the image created. Image gets
assigned to the body, not saved as a file.
