A quick question about the upcoming update (I'm on a challenge run right now so I didn't switch to testing yet):

Obviously the new Fossil POIs will require a new worldgen, but how about the meteors?

How will it affect existing colonies? If it's coming there, does it only affect planetoids that already had meteors or must we expect additional showers on other planetoids?
