Since orbiting planets seem to be allmost impossible (if you wanna land on them and assign Deathzones and atmospheres).

HOW ABOUT ORBITING SUNS?

i bet it would give a orbit like feel to the systems if the was a giant sun orbiting it and should give some illusion of the planets themselves orbiting.


ANYONE KNOW HOW TO MAKE ORBITING SUNS?

Why not just try Orbiting Moons around the planets? :D

Umm... that's been done before lol. It's a moon connected to a planet as a parent, so if you click it you'll just select the planet.
Don't ask how, though. I saw it in a mod... can't remember which one. :(

Yep, that would look pretty good.... if it was possible, that is. I've yet to see anyone successfully implement an orbiting sun, so....

Yep, I'm stumped. :(

The problem will be if the sun is orbiting it won't have a death zone. The only way that might work (Well, I don't know if it is possible) is create an effect that has a damage entry inside the sun or make the new effect look like one.

Good input there Nightstalker, ty.

Maybe a gun at the centre of the sun riding on a hardpoint from center planetary object?

i dont know if that will work, even if someone got an idea how to do it without a working deathzone id still like to hear it.
