What exactly is this? It's not something we'll ever see in game is it?

Its our galaxy, also know as the milkyway. Every dot you see is a star, and there are more than 100 billion of them. Unless you fly very very far out you probably won't be able to see it like this.

You might see it like this in the 3D map we are planning for Infinity.

Thanks for responding, but I was actually meant to ask what it was in an in-game context. That is, isn't a solar system randomly generated when a player enters it? So what exactly is "Galaxy Generation?"

In order to enter a solar system, you have to go there first, so the game needs to know the locations of the stars to know when you have entered the system

Yeah something like that, and there's a big difference between randomly generated and procedurally generated.
From the FAQ:

Procedural generation is not at all the same than random generation. In fact, it's pretty much the opposite: it's all about recreating the same data providing the same inputs. "Seeds" numbers are given to objects, so as long as an object has the same seed than before, it will be recreated exactly like before, with the exact same details, down to the millimeter level.
Synchronization between multiple players is ensured by making the server transfer the same object's seed to all players who are able to see or interact with this object. So all players will see the same procedurally generated object, like a planet, with the same details.

Really? I always thought random and procedural were basically the same on a computer since there really is no such thing as random in computers. This is kind of a pain in the *** though. Random is so much quicker to type. It's shorter and more phonetic.

You will might see it as a 3D map of the universre of a game called "Infinity"
because of procedural generation, you can fly to every single star, and there are 300 Billion in this game, without any loadscreens, and land on every planet and asteroid of the infinite asteroide belts all around there, it is the biggest thing ever made in space-game-history ;D

It's unknown for now, but a good fraction of them.

Hey, even if it's only a small fraction, a small fraction of 200 billion is still quite a few :)

The galaxy is procedurally generated. The engine only generates what the client sees. Until the player actually encounters and sees an object, like a planet, star, or asteroid, it simply doesn't exist. It's generated when the player gets close enough to see and interact with it, and when the player leaves, it stops existing.
