I agree - thats something that should be changed. Only planets should
follow the planet naming convention. Astroid belts should probably have
their own designation, probably A/B/C/D/...(as astronomers do now with
rings). Stations should probably follow their own numbering system,
perhaps in an order not related to their orbital position.

The clustering is something I've been working on. Unless I can get it
working better, I may just take it out as its not very useful as is.

Interesting you'd mention 3d-objects :-) Actually, Richard K has made up a
few testing objects for me. I dont know if I can apply them to things like
nebula, but I hope to allow for 3d objects to be used, esp for ships and
stations, both on the 3d map and in the preview map.
