The problem with system generation isn't the sizes and positions of planets, it is the sizes and positions of colonies.

and "hot Neptunes" https://phys.org/news/2020-10-atmosp...-shouldnt.html

"For the first time, we measured the light coming from this planet that shouldn't exist," said Ian Crossfield, assistant professor of physics & astronomy at KU and lead author of the paper. "This planet is so intensely irradiated by its star that its temperature is over 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit and its atmosphere could have evaporated entirely. Yet, our Spitzer observations show us its atmosphere via the infrared light the planet emits."

Default hot Jupiter

and next up, a hot Jupiter! I've a feeling in a hundred years there will be so many odd things we thought impossible we may as well have a complete random system generator for Traveller
