Just a thought, since I don't know what the current options are for the game it may or may not apply, but it would be neat to be able to generate a map with a solar system setup, where there's optionally a noninteractive star at the center, and a number of large planets generated in the general vicinity of the star. Then a number of smaller planets (moons) generated around each large planet. That'd create an interesting set of clusters, plus a 'struggle for the large planet' effect in each cluster.

Also, while playing the game, I question whether it might be a good idea to multiply the bonuses of large planets instead of just increasing the base production.
So instead of:
   Small: 3/6/9/12
   Large: 5/8/11/14
It might be:
   Small: 3/6/9/12
   Large: 5/10/15/20

That would make large planets much more desirable all throughout the game, instead of just at the very beginning.

Just some thoughts.

Yes, I have considered the "solar system" idea; I'd like to one day make the graphics properly 3D (with planets lit in the correct direction and everything), in which case I might revisit it.

You're right about large planets vs small planets too. I did have a few thoughts in that direction yesterday.
