That is everything. Only the mass 0 bodies are going to be moons, with only a few big moons as mass 1. Everything else mass 1, 2, and 3 are going to be planets.

Krenshala, question about tidelocks: are those tidelocked to the star or to the moon? Because every planet is going to be tidelocked to its first moon, right? I don't see any differentiation for planets tidelocked to a star or for big moon tidelocks.

Are you looking at the same list that I am seeing? Because the list that I am seeing has no G planets, no I planets, no Asteroid belts...

It should have included I , G and AST results. not sure why it didn't but I haven't been using that version for a bit and its replacement isn't done yet.

Yeah, I'm finally back (again)! Sometimes, life (and 13yo son's) don't leave you time to play SF and earn a paycheck. :/

No, really! Matt actually made me an admin here!

But most importantly, you'll have a lot of math to do to balance the numbers. We spent a lot of time and had to adapt a sysgen program to generate total numbers so we could get as far as we did.


Okay, I have numbers that I have balanced. How do I get the spreadsheets to you?
