Varying planet size.

Planet size deviation isn't really that exciting, with a tendency for the larger sizes, even though the mean is currently set at 400, with deviation at 85.

Thanks to a discussion with Sachy's and Exitar in-game, we're considering changing this. As for any specific value...your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Isn't that a bit too late now?

I thought planets are generated when the world is created.
...or is it generated when coming into view first time?

Basically any existing known/visited planets is already locked to its sizes unless I'm mistaken?

The planets size is dependent on when it is "discovered" so if you found a planet before the change then it would be smaller if you found it after then it would be bigger.

Theyre too big already - that whole thing with things not loading after popping several doesnt happen when theyre smaller. We already have a silly mining bonus, and, if you pop the core, you end up with a variety f different plate sizes, that do not adhere to what you just popped, which in turn makes people want to mine the planet unpopped, which in turn, yadda yadda...

I say reduce it to 250. Leave it at that
OR
Reduce the mining bonus

After some thought I think if you want the 200 variation for the planets the mean size should be 200-250.  They already tend to load in at the higher diameters and a 700m planet I'm not sure if the server would survive.
