demonstrated by the common modern misinterpretation of "wherefore art thou Romeo" as "where are you"
It never even occured to me that it could be interpreted as "where are you" (I love shakespear, by the way).
ohhhhhhhh, excellent find! If they had the table downloadable as a csv that would be a dream, as it is it is still great. Will take a lot of work to get it all into a file, but This is definitaly what I need, yes.Are you looking for something like this: http://isthe.com/chongo/tech/astro/H...byhrclass.html ?
I'm still experimenting around a bit, I noticed that the HYG database has color index listed (which I knew), but I assumed only for a fraction of the stars. Turns out that there are only about 2000 stars that don't, and a precise color index might be all I need to get good results. I'm re-parsing the database right now (it takes almost half an hour to convert the whole thing), so I'll see if it works pretty soon.
it's an idea for a testbed, but I want a galaxy. I'm a bit megalomanic As it seems, the essential ingredients have already been found by Linguofreak, and if my little experiment described above works I'll be able to continue as planed.Here'as a thought. What if we limit the number of star systems created to ONLY those KNOWN to have planets ? This would give us a platform to build on with a set of known valuses.
