I read in an article today about how tidally locked planets and it said that tidal locking can be avoided if the planet has a thick enough atmosphere
http://www.centauri-dreams.org/?p=32547
(another one saying the same thing)
http://physicsworld.com/cws....spheres
Both quote the same source which was a study done by the University of Toronto
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/347/6222/632

and i read about another thing that may stop tidal locking,having a big moon
http://www.quora.com/If-an-E....-that-s tar
(Quora not exactly being the most trusted site,but the answer seemed correct enough)

so does space engine factor these things in? because i did find some non-tidally locked planets on K sequence stars but nothing common in between them and i found tidally locked planets that did have thick atmospheres and a big moon but were still tidally locked

which leads me to believe that space engine doesn't classify tidally locked as a trait for planets
