Post subject:  Orbiting Suns

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. :(

Ive done that............

This is about Orbiting suns and i think they will look great if its possible that is...

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.
