An epic sun effect

Hey all. I've known about replacing the flare.png already, but the flare still doesn't look as good. Here I've made a comparsion image of the flare I made, *exactly* how it looks in spaceengine, and how I expected it to look like.

It all depends on which star you are looking at. Brown dwarfs give off an orange-red glare, Red dwarfs give a light orangish glare, Orange dwarfs give off a lighter orange flare, White stars give off a pure white flare, and Blue stars give off a beautiful blue glare.

For enhanced redness, color your flare a slight yellow. Then you will get what you wanted.



EDIT: Actually there wasn't that much of a difference, maybe I should've made the flare a deep orange. You must have been looking at a yellow dwarf in the screenshot, an orange dwarf will look more like your Photoshop example.

Well, I don't totally like the red circle ghost, maybe I will leave the original ghosts, but the central sprite looks really good. This is the kind of flares I like more happy
