Is there a way to make it when I start a new game, I start out on a planet with a preset name, and a preset star system, so for example, I start out in the Sol system on planet Earth.

One of the things we've asked for multiple times, because currently, the start up generation is completely random.

We need some changes to the Other Empire selection screen. What we need is a checkbox next to the faction. You tick this box if you want them to start on the homeworld. That way, you can have multiple factions fo the same race, but the one you checked will start on their homeworld.

We also need a Load and Save button on this screen so that we can save our setup. I cringe when I think of the number of hours I must have spent setting up my empires each time I change mod!

That is a neat idea.
