The color of the stars depends on sun radius and the planet radius. Agricultural shifted to K-star, Industrial closer to A-star. A-star are located far away.
The radius of the sun used by default. The corona shim and hues did change.

Thanks to Wildeblood and Stranger.

Planning to configure the corona, depending on the type of stars, descriptions, other OXP and etc. (for example COTBS and Famous Planet).

Do you have suggestions for further modification (distance, corona for stars)?

Interesting project, Rustem..

This thread belongs in Expansion Packs, though.

Indeed interesting and, indeed, belongs to Expansion Pack.

Ok, another_commander!

The color of Lave changed to white, that would be on the start screen was white.

Should I keep the B(may be - A) - stars used in the list?

Since B stars, these very massive objects race through their life-cycles in only a few tens of millions of years – too quickly to allow even primitive life-forms to emerge.

In the Ooniverse as possible?

Anything is possible, but how many have you got?

Quite a lot of the planets in the game are inhabited by "Human colonials". If you're worried about B-class stars producing their own native lifeforms, you could limit their appearance to where they intersect with Human colonials, and assume that the planetary inhabitants have terraformed something or are living in some form of sealed habitat(s).

The Harvard classification system - for all stars https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_classification
===
B 0.13%
A 0.6%
F 3%
G 7.6%
K 12.1%
M 76.45%
==

I rebalancing star distribution to habitable for life.

Galaxy Sector 1

B 2%
A 5%
F 23%
G 45%
K 13%
M 13%

A and B - so many, G and K - optimal for life. But this is game. Balancing between stat data, habitable for life and beauty game.

I would like to set up a small amount сlasses A, B in future release.

For G1 with default settings 1.82:

It can be recalculated in future releases.

Tuning value of the sun corona (the default value corona_flare of about 1 - 9% of the radius of the sun). If the value of the corona more than 10% better view of the sun at far, but near to the sun(skimming) the saturation increases, there is nothing invisible.

Question: Should not at increasing distance to begin the process of skimming, if size of the sun corona is increase?

After doing some checking at Wikipedia, in essence, the corona of a star extends from the "surface" on out into space. In Oolite, scooping is triggered when the distance to the surface is less than 15% of the sun's radius. This is a constant, set in the code. The only way to change it would be to edit the core code and re-compile the program. So for all practical intents and purposes, there's nothing you can do to change the point at which skimming takes place.

Thanks, Diziet Sma!

When fly towards the sun , larger value of distance scooping may conflict with the mass lock, perhaps.

When for K, G - star(near sun) set value 1-10% (may be - default value), for F, A - star (far sun) increase few range (10 - 50%).

If developers will corrected core code, when it is improve view of skimming with more value of sun corona.

I have adjusted the corona flare and correct other parameters. Human inhabitant is not factor now. Correct distance to HZ range. Add sun name.

Add statistic data on all galaxies in OXP folder.

Distant Stars [Test release 0.0.3]:

Adjusted the color of white stars. Correct distribution, fixed bug calculation. Add corona hues and corona shimmer.
Sometimes white stars (F) are not white.

Version 0.0.4
- Aggregateted planetinfo to one file - planetinfo.plist.
- Adds script that did variable corona flare (frequent, dreadful, unpredictable) based on the system description.
