Star is a star system generator for Sci-Fi RPG.It includes things like
binary sytems, asteroids, atmospheric compostion, unusual planet characteristics
(rings, native life, high tides...), day and night temperatures or quantity
of mineral ressources.

Army Generator v1.0: Adam asked me for a starship generator, I've made a little utility
some months ago that generates a very basic order of battle. So I've put it on my page in the case
someone is interested in it.
With the new launch pad buttons I recommand you to put all the executable files in the
If you use a high resolution screen, some forms could appear to small. With the starwin.ini
file this problem should be fixed for the main browser form, but not for all the others

to look at it when I'll have the opportunity to work on a bigger one...
Things that could be here in the future, I give some release dates for
these programs, I'm not sure if I'll respect these dates . It's here only
for indication, and like Microsoft, my programs are always in late and with
lot of bugs:
Star Doc: all the updated formulas and file formats (Perhaps this year)
New rpg systems supported (Fudge, Star Trek...).
New doc file: it's something that I always wanted to do but didn't have time. My
help file is a little succint and disorganzied, with the new html format perhaps
someone will help me to write a better one...
An addon that export StarGen files to a database format that will let you browse
your main datas with Access.
And of course I'll update Star generator as new bugs will be fixed or new
features will be added.
I would like to thanks Fabricio Cesar Franco, James Alan Young, MJ Lush, Steve, Alan Kohler,
John Dollan, Noel Weer, Galt, Adam and Matthew and all the others for their suggestions and supports. Also a big thanks to Stephan
Aspridis who gave me the reasons why a fluorine atmosphere couldn't exist and the authorization
to use his Galactic program formulas.
