4x Space Procgen

Question

I’m working on a 4x Space Strategy Game and everything is going well untill I got into creating the procgen for the starmap, I realized I have no Idea how to implement it. Well, to be fair I tried a lot of different approach in placing the stars(containing the planets) on a random position but everything feels wrong to me, I may be missing something or I am just doing it all wrong.

I’m trying to do something like this.

Am I supposed to use noise? Cellular? And instantiate the scenes(stars)?

Nvm, I figured it out myself now the starlane is my next problem.

func _positioner():
if Star_count > round((widthheight)/star_distance):
print(“Too Many Stars or The distance are too great!”)
pass
else:
print(Star_count, " / ", round((width
height)/star_distance))
if not Star_count == starsPos_Counter:
for i in Star_count:
var sphere = preload(“res://nodes_s.tscn”).instantiate()

  		var x = 1
  		var y = 1
  		
  		starsPos_Counter += 1
  		var positioner = _star_pos_arbiter()
  		if positioner == null:
  			debug_cycles_pos += 1
  			positioner = _star_pos_arbiter()
  		else:
  			starsDic[i] = sphere
  			sphere.position = positioner
  			for j in star_distance*star_distance:
  				if x == star_distance and not y == star_distance:
  					x = 0
  					y += 1
  				else:
  					if not x == star_distance:
  						x += 1
  					else:
  						pass
  				
  				var bridge = Vector2(positioner.x - star_distance/2, positioner.y - star_distance/2)
  				var pos = Vector2(bridge.x + x, bridge.y + y)
  				starsDic_pos[pos] = "Occupied"
  				$UI/Window/ItemList.add_item(str(pos))
  				
  				if sphere.get_parent() == null:
  					$".".add_child(sphere)
  		print("starsDic: ", starsDic.size())
  		print("starsDic_pos: ", starsDic_pos.size())

func _star_pos_arbiter():
var rander = Vector2(randi_range(-width, width), randi_range(-height, height))

if starsDic_pos.has(rander) and starsDic_pos[rander] == “Occupied”:
return null
else:
if rander == Vector2(0, 0):
return null
else:
return rander

:rofl: thank you, you’re a life saver​:crab:

Btw, I don’t know what this forum use is it the ` or something it just turned into that jumbled form
