[BUG] Flares are red on any star type
« on: February 27, 2015, 03:45:36 PM »
Hello, i've found a bug where the flares from stares are always red no matter the color or type of star, as shown in this screenshot:

I would imagine the flares would be a blue color like the star, unless i'm completely wrong, if that's the case, sorry for posting a non bug.

Hmm, that's a really good question! I'll ask Eric and see what he has to say about it.

"The right answer is that flares should be white light. They release energy all across the em spectrum and would likely appear white to the eye. To make it pretty, you might mix in both a bit of blue and red. But just a bit.

And the color would be the same for all stars. Both the low mass and high mass."

We'll aim to fix this in a future alpha release.
