From: "Wes Connell" <wconnell at adhesive.com>":
> Does anyone have any good links to some planet/solar system generation

the

such

> Also planet/terrain generation that is geophysically correct would be
great.
> Even to go as far as plate movement, mineral make up, and weather
patterns.

> Anyone know of such resources?
