- 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.
