moons  in system gen?

I'd still like a Generate Sol button for initial campaign setup as well,  though both of these aren't overly important at the moment obviously

Moons are on the To Do list. There already is a table for them. Just need to put in the generation routines.

Sol... The stellar system model I'm using is much simpler than Aurora, so there would be no where near the complexity or accuracy here. I can do it, just need to do it. :)

At some point I will most likely have the canon worlds/systems be created with a button click.

cool,  it wasn't an urgent thing, just wishlisting!

what about the option to manually edit a system?

That would take some work. Especially in the verification area. It probably can be done.

what about the option of a dropdown box instead of the RNG that way you still get to use the same verification system?

It might be for some things. The system name is already editable. SystemID I could make a number up/down with the min/max preset to the game options. System Location I could separate out into three boxes and treat like the system ID. The biggest issue is the data grid. I'd have to check and see if that one can handle drop downs.

Been thinking about this.

There is now a button on the New System window which says "Custom System". Clicking this brings up a new window. System Name, ID, and Coordinates are editable plus have a button to randomly select.

There will be a button to add a secondary/tertiary/quaternary star and one to add orbits to each. The grid will allow for selection of planetary type and atmosphere at a minimum. I may include gravity. The rest will probably remain random based on the planetary type.

that sounds pretty good,  I think that would handle most of the cases I was thinking without to much fluffing about
