Repurposing an old program
It's intended for tabletop RPG stuff, the results are sometimes nonsensical, it's horrendously out of date, especially with regards to solar system creation, produces questionable-at-best aliens 90% of the time, and was apparently put together in an obscure programming language (Some nearly-subconscious memory screams 'delphi' for some reason) by somebody with English as a second language but this seems like it could be repurposed/updated and used for harder-sci-fi stuff (An improved alien-generation system would definitely be a good start). I'd do it myself, but I only speak English, and my programming abilities are limited to modifying games with relatively plain-text entries for things. Onl issue with updating I can see is tracking down the .dll that v2 requires. I don't know how dependent the program is on it, so I can't really say if it could be redesigned to not use it. Of course, given my knowledge of prgorammng, I wouldn't be able to say even if I did know how dependent it was.

Just tossing it out there as a challenge. Figured somebody here might find it interesting enough of a challenge to tackle. Sorry if I'm being a bother.
