Star size

Post by Danijel » Sat Feb 16, 2019 8:17 am

In star system preview at bottom right, should star sizes be changed and made more in "some" planet to star ratio, left as they are, or other?

Currently game is set as A.
B and C are just examples of planet to star size change(these are also not ingame images, but easier to present)

Image -for other ideas: Image

B looks a bit weird in that the planets' orbital plane is "above" the star's center.
C is more accurate I guess, though if the star's radius was made smaller it could show a bit more of the star itself.

Something in between B and C would probably look best - that is, a star with the radius of B but centered as C. Does this make any sense?
Anyway, just my opinion ofc.
