Yo, anyone ever seen this kind of supernova graphic before in DW vanilla or ROTS? I've seen this picture in the first game after patching to 1.0.7, no mods installed:


Usually I get the contours only, not the explodey center

Cheers

Oh god how i wish the galaxy in Distant Worlds was dynamic. With blue & red supergiants eventually having a low chance of going nova, adding some dark clouds to the galaxy map.
As Data's signature states, igniting stellar cores..

Interesting. I never see the star in the middle. Odd.

You'd have to play a LOOOOONNNNNNGGGG game for it to happen. A few hundred million years might do it for you to see one, at realistic chances.

But colonizing an entire galaxy in a few hundred years is realistic? :p

Yeah, but with my luck, the star that goes supernova would be my home planet...
But yes, I agree.

The average for a supernova explosion in our galaxy is 1 every 50 years, so it's entirely possible to have supernovas and novas as random events in the game.

Of course, it's less likely that 1 of the 1400 stars in the game's galaxy will go nova. Compared to our galaxy which is estimated to have as many as 400 billion stars.

Tjhkkr. It´s not that unlikely to loose your homesystem by a supernova. This crap happened to me in "birth of the federation". I was playing as klingon and my only system went supernoca in turn 3 .

But it´s a great idea. A changing universe would make the game much more intresting. Supernovas, planets changing their orbit, asteroid impacts, eco-catasterophis, pleagues....planetary earthquakes destroying your invrastructure......lucky as I am every negative event will trigger right after I press the start button

Well we got the name... but um umm ummm Data you may need a memory check, because Praxis did not crack -- it sort of blew up...

Fortunatelly, that's not a memory problem but a non-english speaker expressing himself problem
Or that's my excuse, at least.

Then I should shut up and forget about it -- my apologies...

Oh, and your English is better than mine is... so do not worry about it...
