here's the thing, I almost like the original a bit better, mainly because I think it was more evocative with the planets it did generate. I want to add that evocativeness back but I also want the generator to be like, bigger, and contain more information. Hence why everything is in charts now. https://perchance.org/scifi-system-generator-starwall
ok, update: ice planets exist, as do CO2 ocean worlds, Methane ocean worlds, and Ammonia ocean worlds. https://perchance.org/scifi-generator-testbed
I've been absolutely rabidly working on this thing for a solid 10 hours and its finally to a point where I'm actually happy with it. Still, it needs a lot more flavor, which I can add. And formatting! I wanna make it look pretty and have all kinds of bells and whistles. Honestly its nearly done! https://perchance.org/scifi-generator-testbed
@starwall ohh lol that makes sense! well it is good but I'm also excited for the tool tips since i don't know what most of it is but i could definitely see myself jumping and reading random generated planet compositions for probably too long
@root the tooltips would really just be there to provide definitions. like if you hovered over the word "Hycean" I'd have a tooltip that includes a little artists rendition and a bit of text below that says "Hycean planets are large aquarias that straddle the line between superoceanic terrestrial and gas planet, featuring large, supercritical water oceans and a majority hydrogen-helium atmosphere."
@starwall that's great! because they just seem like fancy words that may possibly be generated already to me, so, it won't feel like boring learning it'll be fun randomly generated learning in a sense
@root Yeah a lot of the words in here are either made up or rigorously redefined by me for use in this generator, so it'll need lots of little tidbits like that. Plus some of the things I'm using in here are real concepts, like for instance classes I-V gas giants, those are real classifications that I'm just slapping in there nearly word for word.
@starwall also when i made my joycon driver i learned the word "chirality" which more or less means "leftness or rightness"
