While just randomly looking around a distant galaxy, I came across some strange White Dwarf anomalies. (It looks pretty cool in some places though) O.o

These are two different systems, and I checked to see if this affected other White Dwarfs and it doesn't.

The white dwarfs are suppose to have disks... but they are a little weird!
hmm... maybe you should check other systems. I'm not sure if all white dwarfs have disks.

They look like they could be accretion disks, are you using 0.974?

Indeed, those are accretion disks. I do, however, concur that the disks need a little bit of tuning; I have serious doubts that the disk abruptly goes from invisible to brilliant white except in extremely rare cases.

Yes, I am using 0.974.

I did check other systems to see if other white dwarfs had this sort of accretion disk, and no, not all of them do.

Very interesting accretion disks though. :|

I also have a bug report. There's some very strange things going on with ultra-cool Y-dwarves:

Maybe a palette error?

nah thats definitely what they look like in reality ouo

But in all seriousness, that bug looks a bit like the titan-moon-of-selena bug of a couple versions ago.

Look at this it's really strange, looks exactly like those white dwarfs, but it's labeled as a brown dwarf. Also I find Y dwarfs that are like -200 F and they have scorched planets, how?! Those planets should be frozen balls.

If they have strongly elliptical (non-circular) orbits, they may be heating up due to tidal forces. That does sound like a bug, though.

Phenomalx, check your ctrl-F4 settings window - the "Thermal Emissions Shift" slider on the bottom right. It should be at 0.000 by default.
