[BUG] All Random Gas Giants are Blue!
« on: September 05, 2014, 12:41:30 AM »
Today I was creating a solar system when I spawned in a random gas giant.  I was hoping for a red/orange giant, but no matter how many times I tried they kept coming out blue.  DANGIT!  Last time on US2 this did not happen, and I got a wider choice of colors.  Am I just (un)lucky, or is this some kind of issue?

I cannot intentionally recreate the bug, as it seems to occur randomly.  Restarting sometimes fixes it.

Yeah, that's a problem. Currently the only colors I have ever been able to spawn blue and brown giants. Although recently I spawned a gas giant that somewhat resembled Uranus.

(Speaking of which why is Uranus the same color as Neptune in US2?)

Huh?  Uranus is very similar to Neptune in reality (they share almost exact same colors due to methane abundance in atmosphere), but are you saying Uranus has the exact same texture as Neptune in US2? Neptune looks like a dark blue color but Uranus is a Greenish-Aqua color with brighter areas on the poles.

Maybe most planets in the universe are blue (because of the methane), so the probability of it being a red/orange are highly unlikely

That doesn't make any sense. Who said methane was common? And anyway this is Random Planet not "Most likely Planet"

I'll look into this one. I'm sure it's just something with the settings for Gas giants. A lot of this stuff is work in progress and will improve over time.
