Just got into DW:U as a seasoned Stellaris player and wow! I'm still at the stage where I'm watching YouTube tutorials as I play to really master all the mechanics.

My question is this, will DW2 have a start option as humans on Earth (pre-ftl) with accurate surrounding star systems? (Centauri, Bernard's, etc) One of my favorite things to in any 4x space sim is to roleplay Humanity as we take our first steps into the stars. The Human Revolution mod for DW:U was great, but started off with Humans on earth already exploring several star systems.

That doesn't make sense within the lore of distant worlds, but there is nothing to stop anyone from making a scenario file which enables that.

Afaik galaxy creation is still mostly random including home systems with random names. I asked in another thread about making 'system templates' for use in galaxy creation of home systems and the response was this.

This is one I don't think people have asked about but will there be the ability to make system templates for galaxy creation? As in you recreate the solar system and the game will use that as your starting system if you pick humans? It could also help to make galaxy creation a little less random by having a certain amount of systems contents predetermined.

We have that kind of thing available from the Game Event system, and we use it for some of the story events. This mechanism could be used to modify the player's starting system. It's not so much a star system template as the ability to add new planets to a system.
