More celestial bodies/more accurate catalog

Which of my ideas do you think are good?

Like a lot of people, I miss some celestial bodies in the space catalog, so I was searching for information and found out this:
Deimos and Phobos (Martian moons)
- they are both asteroids and have very low gravity. Their escape velocity is: D:7m/s P:11m/s, so you could get to the space menu just by an explosion or even a jump. I'd recommend the gravity engine, that is implemented on the space station.
- they aren't that big to fill up a whole world like other dimensions. I'd prefer something like the End, but bigger (D: 10 x 12 x 16 km P:27 x 21,6 x 18,8 km)
- they are both made up of carboneous chondrite. That means, they could be a source of oil.
- Phobos contains ice
- their angular diameters from Mars are: D:2' P:10'
- distance from Mars: D: 23 458 km P: 9 376 km
- temperature: -40C (no thermal padding needed, imo)
I don't think this planet should be accessible as soon as possible, since there are many opinions about what it should be like.
But its moons look more interesting.
Ganymede (Jovian moon)
- it's the biggest moon in the Solar system; if it orbitted Sun instead of Jupiter, it were a planet.
- it's composition is mainly chondrite and ice
- it has a thin oxygen atmosphere
- temperature: -170C
Europa (Jovian moon)
- slightly smaller than the Moon
- its surface is a dense layer of ice with a water ocean below
- surface temperature: -170C
- thin oxygen atmosphere
Titan (Saturnian moon)
- it is slightly bigger than Mercury
- it has a dense (1.4 of Earth) atmosphere of 95% nitrogen and 5% methane
- temperature is -180C
- methane rivers and seas
- methane rain
- gravity is 1.35m/s^2
- mix of water and ammonia under the surface (liquid)
More accurate distances in the space menuAs I mentioned in my previous suggestion post, all planets should be slowed down to make my space traveling system making sense. Here are real distances of all known planets, some moons and Alpha Centauri.
Planets <-> Sun:
Mercury: 58Gm
Venus: 108Gm
Earth: 150Gm (1AU)
Mars: 228Gm
Jupiter: 778Gm
Saturn: 1425Gm
Uranus: 2874Gm
Neptune: 4501Gm
Moons <-> their respective planets:
Moon: 384Mm
Phobos: 9Mm
Deimos: 23Mm
Ganymede: 1 070Mm
Europa: 671Mm
Io: 422Mm
Callisto: 1 883Mm
Titan: 1 222Mm
Alpha Centauri AB <-> Sol: 41 300Tm
Alpha Centauri AB <-> Alpha Centauri C: 1 950 Tm
Aplha Centauri C <-> Sol: 39 906Tm
Alpha Centauri A <-> Alpha Centauri B: 3 450 Gm
1 Tile should be equal to 50GM or 100GM
on planet zoom, there should be a less opaque grid of mTiles

This is everything for now.

Here is a picture of oversized planets in realistic distances from the Sun.
