Overview

Based on a discussion on the forum, Setting background stars & nebulas, to give OoLite a more realistic Ambience, this OXP sets various universal settings to match the colours we can see in the night sky. The numbers of stars has also been set to match what the average eye can see in this part of the galaxy (which would vary if you were moving significant distances in a real galaxy, but not over 50 light years :-) ), with a more natural light ambient_level, and the Sun's been moved to give it a more realistic size when near the planet (you might notice this when skimming).

I've used the same technique as Sensible sun to position the Sun, so this will clash Any comments please report on the bulletin board discussion: Realistic Stars
