Hello! I'm glad I joined!

Hmm, as I browse the site, I realize it's not going to be ok to just generate random sectors in mapped areas.
That's actually pretty cool, it takes a lot of guesswork out of what I'm doing.
So if I consider a "sector" to be a 20ly area, which seems awfully small now.
Well here...
If I look at the 2D map of the Middle Regions, on the upper left is a grid roughly centered on an object named sh 2 200 under the Solar Dominion.
What is the distance to sh 2 187 in ly?
If I roughly transcribe a circle around sh 2 200 it seems to contain BF528, BF529, NGC 1502, and Stock 23.
Where is the data that tells me what those objects are, and their stats?
If we made sh 2 200 the x=0 y=0 z=0 of a section of space stretching out a little further than the distance to sh 2 187; that distance could rounded off and that could a rough and ready "sector".
An empty sector could be created in Astrosynthesis, then the x,y,z coordinates of the other objects could be mapped out and they could be displayed in relation to sh 2 200.
Astrosynthesis can use a lot of planetary and orbital data, and determine the habitability of a body, and a lot of other things.
I find the idea of doing that with the Inner Sphere to be daunting though.
Which is why I picked a random sparsely populated area to start with.
Does any of that make sense?
