I am trying to min-max an empire by giving them either Oxygen or Carbon Dioxide atmosphere, even though I know that Methane rock planets are probably more common. Is there a way to find out what rock planet atmosphere is most common?

I think this Perl script that SJ wrote will tell you:


You'll need to install a Perl interpreter, or I can run it for you and share the output!

edit: although this script only reads SectType.txt; I'd expect that the presence of always-non-atmosphere moons will throw the stats off!

edit: oh, no, wrong script; this one just makes an HTML list of all the planet entries in SectType.txt; it doesn't compute stats!

edit: here is what you're looking for: http://imagemodserver.duckdns.org/other/MM/SE4/Tools/rar/SE4mapstats.rar but it requires some old DLL to run which I guess you'll have to Google?

edit: I found the DLL: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/180071/file-msvbvm50-exe-installs-visual-basic-5-0-run-time-files
