There's already a search feature in the game, but it only lets us search by name. I want to search for specific kinds of objects (ie. a K0V star, a white dwarf or a neutron star, allowing the user to be very specific or very broad) so that I don't spend hours searching the galaxy (and others) by hand just to find one object that fits the specifications I want.

Another thing I wanted was to be able to change planet type in the editing menu. That and perhaps tooltips to explain what specific values control.

I understand that some would prefer this.. but it kind of takes away the exploring of the star aspect.

guess one could just overlook the feature if needing to do some exploring

I don't know if it'd take away from the exploring aspect. You already know what any star is if you click on it, this just means you can find that one star type you're looking for in the sea of billions without spending hours clicking on random dots, and then explore it and go back to grabbing a number out of a hat as a method of exploring.

How would you order the results if you have billions of objects that match your criteria?

Have the search for "Black hole" locate the closest one to your current location?

Actually, a search by object type function would be useful for the catalog and a search by object function should be integrated into the new wiki feature that's in 0.97.
