Default System generation (Over World Generation)...

I'm wondering if there are guidelines for randomly generating an entire star system (in addition to the world generation rules in the core book) buried in a Mongoose Traveller book somewhere. If not, which methods (either house ruled or from another edition) would you use to patch them in?

Yes, kind of. It's not nearly the detail level of GDW/IG/FFE system generation, tho'. Book 3 pages 91-93.

My Elestrial Concordat setting (see my website) has a system created by kitbashing MGT generation to do what CT Bk 6 generation does. Which, unlike MGT bk 3, makes it compatible with CT, MT, TNE, T4, T20, and T5.

You're referring to the Scout book from Mongoose?

Thanks. I'll see if I can pick that one up.

To make it easier to find:
Aramis (Will) uses the system in THIS LINK TO HIS PDF
I used it and found it very helpful.

[Will, FYI ... the blue on black of the left hand pull down is hard to read ... especially with the highlight of a first visit. It could use greater contrast.]
