Notes and references

1Size affects the sprite used to represent the planet in interplanetary mode and the number of satellites. Small worlds are either moons or planets without any moons. Large worlds have a 193/256 chance of having no moons, a 51/256 chance of having a single moon, and a 12/256 chance of having two moons. Gas Giants have a 27/256 chance of having no moons, a 38/256 chance of having a single moon, a 64/256 chance of having two moons, a 64/256 chance of having three moons, and a 63/256 chance of having four moons. Whether the planet is Topo or Cratered affects the way its surface map is generated.
