    Yeah, a big one. I tried spawning a "procedural asteroid", gave it a size of 2,000 meters, clicked the "Seed" button a few times just to mix it up, and...

    I get this scrawny-looking hunk of rock about the size of the rocks I clear out of my garden each spring. What's that about? Hey, a 1,000-meter diameter asteroid would be more than enough...or even 500 meters, but I get a throwback (you know, when you're fishing and you catch Charlie Minnow).

    What do I have to do to generate a decent sized assdroid?

    Try it at 20,000. That will probably result in a size you are looking for.

    The largest setting is 2,000.

    I thought it went higher.. :) You can try using SE Toolbox to generate one. One of the bad things about being at work I can't just jump in the game to look at the settings, though with all my hours in the game one would think I should have it all in memory. :)
