No. It would be interesting if the system view we have can eventually get that complex/advanced.

Ive seen images like that before, confusing untill i realise the asteroids are wrong, but weird coincidence about the interface colours.

". . .  We know nothing about them, their language, their history or what they look like.  But we can assume this.  They stand for everything we don't stand for.  Also they told me you guys look like dorks. "

Mostly coincidental design choices. I mean, come on, elliptical orbits? That's craycray, man.

Image search brings me to this page: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikijunior:Solar_System/Asteroid_belt . The source states:
" This image is based on data found in the en:JPL DE-405 ephemeris, and the en:Minor Planet Center database of asteroids (etc) published 2006 Jul 6. The image is looking down on the en:ecliptic plane as would have been seen on 2006 August 14. It was rendered by custom software written for Wikipedia."
2006? Interesting coincidence considering how old Aurora is.

"Sir, the probe we send out to explore all system bodies has finished its task."

"Didn't we send that out 112 years ago?"

"Yes, Sir."

"Gosh, and that was only our own solar system... ."

"How long is the game calculating one 5-day-cycle?"

"Well, last time it took over 25 minutes."

"At least it is not real-time - yet."  ;D

"Steve has promised to deliver C# before that happens... ."  :P

I could have the view that complex - it is only a case of generating more asteroids.

However, I have to draw a line somewhere :)

A couple of trojans and greeks would be a nice addition, just a couple to create the right visual effect. But theres no need to go crazy and give them libration around the lagrange points too....

There are already about fifty Trojans and Greeks in Sol :)

I'm an idiot, I haven't played for a few months but even so how could I forget the blatantly obvious groups following Jupiter around?

That many Trojans must be the explanation why my Antivirus dislike Aurora so much  ;D 8)
