It's a great idea to make a more realistic planet generator. Next thing to fix: moon sizes. I simply subtracted 2 from all dice rolls on G63. This still allows some Terran-sized moons, just not in every system.

"Jovian" is Jupiter-like, therefore a gas giant. Except in reference to mass, this is not that good a description of small gas giants - should be Neptunian, or perhaps another class again for small gas giants inside 10AU.

Update- Time and science have moved on, and this system's beginning to show its age. Also, I cobbled together some other systems and ideas for my own use that never saw publication. Therefore, as soon as current commitments allow, the PG will undergo a fundamental overhaul, which will probably see a final divorce from the GMG random system.
