There is no simple way of achieving this because monsters don't have map speeds and map range: viewtopic.php?f=231&t=319#p34119

Using monster map-program 1 will force a max speed of 1 (AFAIK) and random movement, but I presume that's not what you are wanting.

Map-programs 2-4 always trans-warp jump to star systems (lowest result of [map distances to all systems plus random values]).
I don't know how many bugs is too many but that point is reached somewhere before however many in BotF is.

Of course you can lower the random divisor of monster map programs 2-4 (default 10) to 3. But this will only work the way you want, for tightly star-packed galaxies with no separate areas e.g. very clear spiral galaxies.
