Planet X in the Sol System

In recent years, several theories have been published regarding a potential planet affecting some Kuiper Belt objects, possibly a distant but undetected gas giant. Therefore, a new game option is to "Add Planet X to the Sol System".

The planet will be located at a distance between 125% and 225% of the orbit of the most distant dwarf planet. 10% of the time it will be a terrestrial body, 60% a gas giant and 30% a superjovian. Moons, Trojan asteroids and a Lagrange point may also be generated depending on the type of planet generated. If Planet X has a Lagrange point, a Lagrange point will also be generated for Jupiter. While very distant from the inner system, this could add an interesting variation to the Sol system.

Currently Planet X is named Minerva, although I haven't created any moon or Trojan asteroid names. Suggestions welcome.

Here is one version of Minerva - a superjovian with eight moons, orbiting at 145 AU.
