This is so nerdy and I love it! I hope to get to try it out with some people. Perhaps this would do well in play by post?
A New Horizon
A downloadable game
“Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I
mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just
peanuts to space.”
―Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Originally I wanted to use a D1000 to really drive home how mind-bogglingly big and far apart everything in space is. But I'm not a fan of Simulationist games, and I figured opening with a sweet ass Douglas Adams H2G2 quote would get the point across, while also making the game significantly more playable. Also, a D100 is still gonna come up with mostly nothings, so, there's that.

Hey thanks, glad you enjoy it. Play by post could work real well. It would definitely add a hair of realism by introducing a delay in communication.
Not going to lie, I had almost the exact same idea but didn't follow through when I found the title I was going to use had already been used by an existing game.
I like it and glad you made something showing the vastness and emptiness of space.
