Can you seriously tell me how did you do this with stars

Create seven stars and change their orbits

Add the following script code to the "Surface" label parameter of the star script:
GlowColor      (0.956, 0.764, 0.082)
Modify the color values in parentheses behind GlowColor in this script to change the color of stars.

Copy the color values of rectangular boxes under "RGB Normalized decimal"

That's cool but does the lighting change?

No, this code can only change the color of the star's surface, not the color of the light emitted by the star.

Are you using a script to generate those large arrays of orbiting bodies around a star or a black hole in those orderly patterns? Doesn't look chaotic enough to have been placed manually.

Spent the better part of the last week overhauling the palettes for planets for 0.9.9.0.  As the goal is realism I am trying to keep colors within given ranges for bodies, while factoring in a few odd balls here and there.  I think for the most part I have it down pretty well.  I have also fully overhauled gas giants and implemented Sudarsky's gas giant profiles in the correct ranges.

I didn't cherry pick any planets, these are just random procedural objects that I randomly clicked on and went to so that should give you an idea on how substantial this change is.

I cannot believe how stable Space engine is now. I can crank 12 mag stars easily now.

Planets with life palette overhaul for 0.9.9.0, this one is taking a very long time as there are many palettes and many types of planets these can apply to so getting them right is time consuming.
