Hi,
Can you upload your config what you have changed? Can't tell whats going on there before checking it myself.

I Altered the "\VDC\REG_MAP.CFG"

Original Values:

# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #
# ---------[ MAP GENERATION: VDCREG.exe ]----------------------------------------- #
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #

stars_in_galaxy small = 32;
stars_in_galaxy average = 45;
stars_in_galaxy large = 54;
stars_in_galaxy huge = 71;
...

Altered Values:

# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #
# ---------[ MAP GENERATION: VDCREG.exe ]----------------------------------------- #
# ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- #

stars_in_galaxy small = 16;
stars_in_galaxy average = 20;
stars_in_galaxy large = 20;
stars_in_galaxy huge = 32;
...

Whenever i lower the Values (as seen above), the Galaxy created will be just partial filled with stars, but all stars will have the same "low" distance from each other.

with current cfg you cannot achieve a nice distribution with such low number stars.
you can try play around a bit with "map_generation **_galaxy_star_spacing" and see how that works.
(lower number for more tighly packed star groups / clusters, and higher number for more evenly distributed)
if you want an even distri using all available space on map, you need to do so manually with the Corion tool.

Technically with current config you can do anything you want regarding star placement, but you'll need post-processing lua script for that. Distribution includes STARS150.LUA which turns any galaxy to this

This is a step towards making custom mapgenerator. Looks like it is time to learn lua scripting.
