I'd like to play a map with a large number and a high density of starts. I haven't been able to find a map generator for this. For example, the built-in map of "immense" with "abundant" stars has about 200 stars in a grid of 22 by 22 for a density of of 0.4 star/sector, a "large" is 100 stars in a grid of 10 by 10 for 1 star/sector, and "tiny" is about 20 stars in 3 by 3 for a density of 2 stars/sector. There is no possbility, however, to do 2 stars/sector in a grid of 22 by 22, for example.
Why do I want to do this and what am I looking for in gameplay? I want the complexity and game length of many stars to have epic scope, yet I want to have high packing density because all of the tactical elements of GalCiv are more fun that way. In an immense map, ships spend much time doing nothing in large space.
So, my question: is there a way [or a mod] to make the kind of map I'd like to try out?
