Galaxy Shapes are a thing now

I put in the code today to support different galaxy shapes besides the standard rectangular shape in the original galaxy. The galaxy setup screen was also modified to graphically show the shape of the galaxy that will be used when you start the game.

Below are shots of the circular, elliptical and ring galaxies.

    1. I think it can be done, but it would be trickier. The real problem is that the more complex shapes require a lot more stars to work visually. A “spiral” galaxy with less than 300-400 stars is going to look a lot like an elliptical galaxy.
