I would find this useful, the editor would be great for creating dwarf
elliptical galaxys. Don't know how you would get spirals though I think that
the spirals are created by star types rather than actual gaps, or is it
both?

Just to example the simplicity:

http://scirpg.com/images/tutorials/sample3d_1.jpg

2 bitmaps in the image link above are used to create the cluster in 3D space
as shown. the color brightness is the density and the color spectrum is the
star color preference, the bitmaps can be created through any image utility.
Or some premade ones could be included for samples. Note that this would
also allow for tilted clusters if desired as shown in the jpg.



The Graph editor for sphericals:

http://scirpg.com/images/tutorials/sample3d_2.jpg

Edge (left) is the farthest extent, Center (right) is the center of the
spherical sector, lower graph nodes create less density, higher nodes create
more density, the nodes can be adjusted up and down with the mouse

then perhaps a parallex declination as 2 additional features.
