Default G:Space Alien Creation automated?

Has anyone automated those tables or put them in a spreadsheet?

I've got an html file that does it, along with a little extra functionality. I haven't made it public, because I'm unsure of the copyright status of such a tool, but I'll happily send it anyone who PM's me for a copy. It doesn't let you pick a value and then generate from there, but it does have an option to eliminate water forms, and another one that only returns presapients with manipulators.

Anyone else?

Does it use the tables as they stand, or does it make any effort to correct things like a limbless walker with 6 manipulators?

It uses the tables as they stand. I've got an alternate limb table you can toggle that treats large numbers of limbs as close to having no limbs, but it doesn't eliminate limbs not lining up with manipulators and locomotion. I've also got a switch for using stronger or weaker modifiers when determining what IQ a creature is.
