Re: [nbos] Astro sector generator feedback"T'Star" Mon Dec 14th, 2009
I would like to see some improvements made in how the generator treats
spherical sectors. If I generate a square sector, I will always get roughly
the same number of stars (give or take about 5-10%) at the same 'density'
setting. With a spherical sector of a 25 ly radius, at the same density
setting my first attempt to populate it got roughly 1000 stars. My second
attempt got roughly 40000 stars, the third had 20,000 and the fourth 60,000.
It would be more useful if the general generator was more consistent in
spherical sectors. Though being able to set the specific number of stars
for a given sector will also help with that. I've confined myself to mostly
square sectors with spherical subsectors, because the spherical ones are so
inconsistently generated, it's starting to get more difficult given that
