Iztok, considering my current game, I absolutely understand your point. I am, however, hesitant to do more than perhaps list rank order every 10 years. I think that could be a thing to do - it would hopefully keep enough anonymity to allow people to know who's on top, but not necessarily why.

As for the planet distribution, I work rather incredibly hard to ensure that the spread of planets immediately nearby each player's HW are representative of the galaxy. Therefore the only way to get a 'bad draw' in my games (and it has happened) is if your hab range is so specific that when I scope the entire galaxy from your planet's perspective at Year 1, there are only a handful of greens. Again, it has happened, but I stand by my effort to try my best.

In case you haven't read my treatise on game building, I do actually scan the entire galaxy, and then view it from the aspect of each player's HW. Then I move the planets within a specific range of each player's HW to be representative of the galaxy. I have moved as many as 10 planets in a single area, in order to get a spread that worked equally for everyone. Game prep for me takes a while.
