I've just started playing so I wasn't able to get the best screenshot, but I happened across a small main sequence star entering and then reemerging from a bright red giant.

Not sure if you intended to post this in image dump since this isn't actually a suggestion?

Anyways, it's pretty common with supergiant, and hypergiant stars in SE, especially now that the oblate stars have been applied. It does happen with giant stars, but not as much.

I actually posted in the image dump thread of one which passes close to the core of it's hypergiant companion.

It's actually possible in real life too. Red giants' outer parts are so sparse fellow stars, and even planets, can pass through them with surprisingly low amounts of trouble.




I occasionally stream at http://www.twitch.tv/magistermystax. Sometimes SE, sometimes other games.

Although I wonder if the ones that dive deep in would pull streams of gas or something like the one I found?

I don't know anything about that type of stellar interaction, but I do know that a companion star, if close enough, can actually pull gas off the other. I know white dwarf stars do that. In any case, SE doesn't simulate gravitational outside of initial system generation and while piloting starships.

But they are completely opaque, so it seems they have a solid surface biggrin

In SE yes, but not in reality, especially for the very big ones.

Also Major, you posted this in the completely wrong section of the forum. Additionally, there are existing threads where your post could have fit. Please try to be mindful of the forum rules when posting.
