After a day or so of trying to generate planets with breathable atmospheres, I've discovered that with the current planet generation parameters it is almost impossible to generate breathable atmospheres on all but a few of the planet classes, including unclassified, because they will all generate atmospheres with no less than 150ppm of SO2, except where no oxygen is present in the atmosphere at all. Siwa, Hydra and Boreas class planets limit the presence of SO2 in the atmosphere to 2ppm in the biosphere calculation phase, independent of what results you get in the previous phases, so you will almost never get an insidious atmosphere, even if none of the other conditions on the planet are conducive to an oxygenated atmosphere. Hydra and Morgana class planets seem to be able to generate planets using either preset, giving results of either 150ppm+ of SO2 or 2ppm SO2 planets.
Can we get a setting on the History Class phase that will always use the script that results in a 2ppm SO2 atmosphere, regardless of planet class, or at least limits the amount of SO2 to potentially breathable levels? It seems like it already exists in the game code, making it a toggleable setting be neat.
