I keep hearing mention of this "Star by Star" variant and was wondering how it worked?

From what I've managed to glean from searching then you can place your home system at any time during set up, no home system can be placed next to another, you cannot activate any home system in the first round, Muaat has to be placed in the third ring and players with a double placement in the set up cannot place two systems next to each other.

Are these all the rules to it? How does the game play pan out as a result of it? Have people enjoyed it?

I think you also do not have to stick to ring order when placing, but I may be getting variants mixed up.

Haven't tried it yet, but should at some point. We're cannibalizing SA for some portions already anyway (Distant Suns mods mainly)

You don't have to stick to ring order, you have to place your tile(including home system) next to an existing tile.

I personally like the pre-set star-by-star maps better.
