Very nice So the Black Holes were planned from the start just didnt make it into the game yet?
Well, when you're in the concept phase, you throw ideas around. We didn't have any gameplay use cases for black holes at the start, so we didn't put them in initially; it would have been fancy art for a system you couldn't actually visit. We have some ideas now about how to make them useful in gameplay, so I think they would be worth implementing at this point.
We also didn't implement the white dwarf/stellar remnant, because a dead star with dead planets doesn't present a lot of interesting gameplay options.
