Question

I am not sure if this is a "bug" or a "feature", but I thought I would raise it.

When you Generate a star system, the largest planet you can generate is size A, which is about 16000 km, which is 25% bigger than earth.

IIRC Saturn is about three times bigger than earth. Jupiter is 11 times bigger.

Now I realize that the gravity and/or pressure of these worlds would crush any spaceship that entered the atmosphere, so it could be that these systems were omitted for playability reasons. Still, such huge planets add flavor to a system.

So was limiting planet sizes to size A intentional?
