(Note: This OXP is a Work-in-Progress)
The color of the stars depends on sun radius and the planet radius.

Agriculturals shifted to M-type stars, Industrials are now closer to B-type stars. B-type stars and A-type stars are located further away from the main planet.

The radius of the sun does not change, the vanilla game parameter is used by default.

Solar flares introduced, depending on star-type.

Recommended use with oxz - System Features Sunspots 1.5.
