I don't think AS has the capability for an entire galaxy. In my experience, it's better to build it out in 100 light-year chunks.

Now that would be a blessing: a tool that had capability to generate an entire galaxy shape. Spiral arms and galactic cores for spiral galazies, and globular clusters

What Iíve noticed when I try to generate a sector, is that it seems to put all the stars in some small section of the whole area. Basically, Iíve stopped using it. What I do is use an Excel sheet Iíve created to generate the system info, save it as a csv and then import that to AS.

Iím working on a VBasic generator to give me more power over the process, maybe include variables for galaxy shapes and/or age, that sort of thing.
