Ah, that's a shame. It would be really nice for testing if I could assign a color to see what's populating correctly and what's not. (not to mention making it easier to say 'just go into dev mode and turn off sensors, the X color systems are affected by my procgen code' when people complain). But I get why; it's extremely marginal.

As a workaround, I'd suggest maybe having a debug toggle to assign highly visible names to systems your procgen affects - say, "------------------1/2/3/4/etc" or some such. Unless I'm missing some reason that wouldn't work.

So, how do I "turn sensors off", exactly?  Went into Dev Mode, viewed the Systems, nothing new there.  I'm really curious as to whether I've just missed Domain probes the entire game or have actually caused a problem, lol.

OK, after some messing about, I've found the Domain probes.  They're in really weird cluster distributions; I figured they'd be spread a lot more evenly throughout the Sector, and apparently just never ended up in the clusters, as they're basically in three Constellations only.

Not sure if remnant invasions is a Nexelerin feature or OG, but could be nice to have a domain dronefleet invasions too...

It is a Nexerelin feature. The issue with derelicts is that, besides the Guardian, those ships aren't actually all that good. Remnant and Blade Breaker raids are supposed to be more dangerous than normal enemies and derelict raids would fail at this purpose, unless they used copious numbers of Guardians (which don't seem to be reproducible at all...).

Guardians can still be a threat if mothership spawn with capital escorts. Also shield mods can be added. Kind of upgraded, Awakened Guardians.
