SF III: 10 system baselines; all systems use one.
NE: inner systems and outer systems rolled separately. Actually, Rock, Gas and Ice rolled as three separate zones.
19 RZ types, 13 GZ typs, 10 IZ types, for 2470 discrete possibilties, before accounting for individual stars.

SF III: no scales (those were added in the New Carrier Rules from Nexus); the "starmap" is used to draw those links.
NE: System, Interception, and Tactical scales use maps; strategic does not.

SF III: actual populations tracked
NE: abstracted to [population sizes.

SF III has simpler racial handling
