Archives » Do Asteroid Fields "despawn"?
Year 18 Day 239 22:55

I found an Asteroid Field (neat addition by the way), and it made me wonder-

Are they generated randomly upon entering the system, or are they static placements in deep space squares?

I'm debating recording the ones I find, but it would be pointless if they end up disappearing or moving.

They stick around.

More specifically, they *are* randomly generated upon entering of an unpopulated deep space system. They are then persisted after that point. So, once an asteroid field is generated, it gets plopped into the database.

Any deepspace coordinate that is determined to not have an asteroid field is marked as such for 1 year(I do believe). Once that year is up, there's a random chance that an asteroid field can spawn there again.
