We recently improved several of the commonly seen effects of the game, as well as added some models, all of which can be seen in these screenshots:

cool shading effect :3
but the star rays are too lineal, aren't they?

Can you make that looks like these?

That would be awesome :D
Maybe when close to the star, once in a while particle effects could fire off of a random point near (not near the poles) on the star, we could have solar flares :o

Thanks :)

We're working on improving the star effects. Mimicing the look of a star in a way that is high performance while not cheap looking is very hard, but we're trying a number of things.
