Brilliant! That is one gorgeous looking sun. Wouldn't mind mind flying into that, lol :)
I hate to admit it, but I think I just wet myself... that's one gorgeous sun (and moon).
:dropsjaw: Man, that is amazing. Definitely getting that. :banana2: << Haha thats hilarious Anyway, amazing sun, will it be in the next upgrade piece?
thanks for the input..i was hoping it would go over as useable.im adding it into the fed pack im uploading tonight..it'll be the Mmoon tga..with a red and blue sun that will be similar.ive reworked the planets..yet again..mainly to get rid FINALLY of a texture misalignment error caused by the models where the textures become misaligned at the top and bottom of the globes..i finally got them where you dont notice it.i compensated for the misalignment by misaligning my textures by the same amount in the opposite direction from the stretch.
:cool:what are those black spots? solar flares? would u be able to mine it for resources? lol
You could probably make it mineable if you wanted. I'd like to implement something like a nebula emitter from the sun, that does damage like the Metreon nebula. To simulate heat damage to the ship if it gets too close.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

What you want is to make an invisible sod of a nebula, give it nebula properties and put it around the sun, that way it'll be seen as "proximity damage". Yacuzza did that with his suns in the Midnight Universe package.
well not experienced with the sods..but i think theres an odf for the suns..i look see..i just edited Mmoon.tga and added my suns for yellow,blue and red..hell even added another nicer looking moon to..even tho its never been used to my knowledge in armada 2..atleast in the stock game.
im uploading tonight so you all can have a go at it all once the crew here gets it posted...ill post a temp link once its uploaded.
I think these suns look awesome. It'd be funny if someone made a to-scale star, like a 1/24th of it would be one edge of the battle map lol.
