Dwarf Fortress!

We need a post on Dwarf Fortress, even though it's not a space game, but it is the unmatched king when it comes to procedural generation. This New York Times article is fantastic in documenting the devotion the two brothers have to their game: https://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/24/magazine/the-brillian...

Re: Translation question

That's the name of the station, I believe: local impression_station = { CustomSystemBody:new('System Administration Resting', 'STARPORT_ORBITAL') :semi_major_axis(f(233,100000)) :rotation_period(f(1,24*60*3)) :orbital_phase_at_start(fixed.deg2rad(f(0,1))) :axial_tilt(fixed.deg2rad(f(668,100))), } (t...

Re: Atmospheric flight

It might be interesting to see how much "real grounded physics" each of you incorporates. Ideally, we should keep number of parameters low, i.e. only include those that matter the most, and give each ship distinct properties, or that's my thinking at least. More parameters = more complexity = more t...
