The docking computer can still handle this, even though it may not look like....

They are set up by scripts that are customizable. The amount of asteroids that are build can be set in an ini-File! I usually use very high values to test out the positioning algorithm and overall performance - and I like it that way, it gives a feeling of those X3-asteroids. But not every PC can handle so much asteroids. That's why the amount can be tweaked - and because it should be possible to get a universe to your liking. There are a lot of values that can be changed: number of stations per sectors, position of the gates, the 'form' of the sector and some more.

I was thinking about, does Earth will appear in this mod?

This planet looks a Split or Paranid planet, I think because it seems to be made only of rocks, that shows hard conditions for life...

Nice pic with the nebula in the upper part of the screenshot

I don't think so. We wanted to keep earth in X3-TC (and XTM). Even if it would be nice to have it, somehow there isn't anything special with it anymore... everyone wants earth here, there, everywhere. Where would be the fun finding it?

Actually in-game (and you can see it on the screen if you look carefully) this planet looks very habitable.

As Shadow Dream said, we want to leave Earth for X3TC. Earth doesn't really fit in the overall X story the moment X2 takes place.
Furthermore, there is a technical problem: Earth needs a texture. It isn't possible to add new textures to X2. All one can do is replace existing textures. There is a small workaround for this. But this has a backdraft: a considerable part of Pandora was changing standard models to look more or less the way they looked in vanilla X2 -- even though they are new! This is a funny thing - to make changes to stuff that noone really will know - unless they have very good knowledge of the modding process.
Anyway, I'm sure you can imagine, how precious room for textures is - and Earth-texture should be used only one time in the game!
