Re: [nbos] Astro sector generator feedbackEric Schulte Fri Dec 11th, 2009
- 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.
Oh gods yes this, please!
Actually, would we be able to get a slider or something for the 'maximum
number of earthlike planets per system'?
Any ETA on this? My players are clamoring for star charts and I don't have
much of anything to give them at the moment.
