Huh. So Jupiter is kind of like Godzilla in Tokyo, or basically my cats when I'm trying to organize pretty much anything on a tabletop.
Now I'm down the rabbit hole reading about the grand tack and the nice model and planetary migration. There goes my day...
And Hiro, whenever EDG or anyone explains why habitable moons around GG aren't likely, I always try really hard to forget what I just read. Where would we be without Yavin 4?
It also comes down to how hard you want your SF and how simple you want your life as a GM/world builder.
The harder you go, the less likely your players will ever step out of a vacc suit.
Yeah, the rabbit hole is deep and convoluted in this one, I got to the point of simply stopping to add more detail to the world gen I'm using, it'll either never be finished or the players will get bored with the amount of precautions they have to take for that "long walk down the road to the chemist". Space is big.
