Oh I disagree completely; I hate
when my 70's-era game about faster-than-light travel and Scottish Highlander samurai space-lions gets the physics wrong.
Leaving sarcasm aside for a moment, I can comment from experience that the system generation procedure in GT:First In
is just as cruchalicious as everyone has said. But, as was pointed out earlier, it is a few years old; we didn't really know that Bode's Law was crap when that stuff was being compiled. If you really feel the need
to have every major rock in a given modeled, it is a fine choice. I think for most of us, however, sorting details as needed by the story is the less head-explodey option.
