I didn't flip a dang thing. Planet image generation is what I'm working on next, and hoo body. Let me tell you something about how I generate planet images.
I don't. The method I was going to use is garbage and absolutely annihilates planet generation time. Might be an issue with how images are handled, more likely is just that I'm an idiot and need to fix this. I've got a backup plan that requires quite a bit more adjustments to the existing code, but that's sort of the whole point of all this.
So basically no progress. Yay. NEXT TIME, THOUGH. NEXT TIME WILL BE PLANETS. EVEN IF I HAVE TO HAND-DRAW A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT PLANET SHAPES.
