I usually adapt it from other RPGs
If I want to go detailed I use Traveller V5.10.
For quick and dirty systems on the other hand I use EDRPG.
Its usually the first thing I check when picking up a new Sci-Fi RPG

What about programs for simulating these planets and systems? Does anyone have anything there please?

Universe Sandbox 2 is neat. I like looking at different hypothetically habitable solar system setups.

Super Planet Crash is fun to experiment with.

>>86762972
Can you make actual stable solar systems with it though? The name tells me otherwise.

Is there one about dyson spheres?

>>86763752
Oh, I’m seconding that. Megastructures are based.

What evades me, however, is how to make visuals for landscapes and planets.
I used pic related, macro shots of soap bubbles, a couple of times, for fun, but it only got me so far.
I'm asking both for planets and landscapes.
In the late 20th century I would have used Bryce 3D, a 3D program which was both very easy to use and pretty comprehensive and versatile.
But I don't know if there's any equivalent program nowadays.
>>
>>86805152
With Bryce 3D you could do stuff like this within a few minutes. Not perfect, but pretty great for a tool from... like... 1998.
I don't understand why there's such a shortage for easily accessible 3D design tools.
It genuinely feel like the big software publishers are actively removing them.
There was a great one on Ipad, 5-6 years ago, for designing creatures, that used the base of the Spore engine. It's been removed to merge it with the Adobe suit or something.

They've been bought up by large corporations that charge thousands of dollars to use them, or gone out of business. See Cinema4D which started as shareware.

There's probably lot's of stuff like that donjon has some pretty good world map/planet generators.

The sci fi version generator also adds to the world building of the world, and you can make a rotating globe GIF with it.

It's really easy to use so not rly. Just go to town man, I guess the big flaw is that you can't post the planet GIF on 4chan because "the file is too big."

>>86847403
That sucks. Why is the file limit size so low here again?
