New style for the Random Subsector Generator

The Random Subsector Generator has been updated. It now outputs an image in PNG format instead of ASCII.

Old and New Style
Old style to the left | New style to the right

The new style outputs a quite large image, 2066px × 2922px. The hexes are big enough include UWP and Trade Class. I have used a purple colour for UWP and Trade Class so that this extra information won’t stand out to much.

For the new style there are 10 types of planets. These are the same types that are used in the Traveller Universe program.

Solomani Rim rotated

Solomani Rim rotated 90 degrees CW

Solomani Rim Sector rotated 90 degrees, so that it matches many other maps which has the coreward direction to the right.

Also added are:
The Local Interstellar Cloud and other nearby clouds. (blue)
The Strömberg Sphere for Sirius and 40 Eridani. (purple)
The Scorpius–Centaurus Association or the Sco OB2 in the lower right corner. (purple)

These Clouds can also be seen at the Galaxy Map site.
