Corjay has a great project started called Adventure Generator. I used that code to work on this
Refer to: Generate A System (a document page from the Random Planet-System Generator project).
and would like some input. Too little info? Need more detail? More stuff? Help! :-D

Thanks in advance!

Go to the bottom of this page to see the Random System Generator output.

Random Roll Result:

As you come out of the Void you see a binary star system.
A giant star and a companion dwarf.


Sensor show potential habitable planet(s).


As sensors sweep the system several celestial objects appear on the scanners. 60 short-period comets appear on the SystemScope along with a single asteroid belt.

There are 4 planets in this system.
ocean planet,
jovian ,
brown dwarf and
heap of rock.

Distances as follows:
3.2 AU, .9 AU, 4 AU and 1 AU's.

SPECIAL FEATURE = A space mirage which looks like a ship.
