Sorry, because of school it's taking more time. I'll try to be finished ASAP.

Thank you.  I am still away on my business trip and will not return home until Friday night anyway.
If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

I'd like one, if you wouldn't mind, for my mod. for Delta Trianguli, the Tiigran home system. Evenly spaced Yellow and Purple nebulae. You can download my yellow ones from FSM. Anyway,

No big chunks of nebulae please, just scattered stuff, but a fair ammount of it.

I have completed all of the new lens flares except for δ Serpentis. I have the lens flares for the subgiant twins A and B, however, I do not know the spectral classes of the distant pair C and D. I have checked catalogs of multiple and optical stars and the data is not available. I guess I am striving too hard for "realism". If necessary, we can just assume that the distant pair is of the same spectral class as the primary pair of stars. Anyway, if that's fine then I guess I am done with the lens flares. The RGB values are as follows:

α Orionis: Same

β Aquilae A: 255 225 189
β Aquilae B: Same
β Aquilae C: Same

δ Serpentis A: Same
δ Serpentis B: Same
δ Serpentis C: 218 224 255
δ Serpentis D: 218 224 255

If this is fine, I'll hand over the flares tomorrow. As for Laramis, if a star is needed for the system just let me know the specifics and requirements and I'll make it. δ Trianguli would make a great system. I think close binaries of all types are just awesome, so I'll add this system to my list.

Sorry for the delayed response; due to my chaotic schedule.

On Laramis.  I like what you have done in all respects save this one:



I always thought that particular bitmap looks weird, and to have it twice repeated looks even stranger.  Perhaps the bright spot of both of these could be made overlapping?

Re: δ Serpentis; I too couldn't find anything about the other component.  Somehow I seem to have used Dubhe B for these, for what reason even I cannot recall.  We could leave these, use a duplicate star system, or perhaps pretend that the other component is obscured by a bright nebula (maybe this would be best).

Please go ahead and upload what you have.  There isn't any real info about Laramis or any of the other imaginary systems.  I'd suggest finishing up the real ones (Regulus, Tegmen and Tau Ceti in particular) before taking these up.

I kinda like it. Most nebulae in FreeSpace currently looks too similar to each other. It would be nice if there could be a nebula so mind blowing and bizarre beyond imagination, that it actually becomes believable. After seeing so many images of nebulae, nothing seems impossible and out-of-the-ordinary when it comes to them.

Admiral Nelson, I can improve that background if you want or do something more if you need any more systems.

That will be part of Port 3.1.  The flares M87 is referring to above are those required to complete the FS1 systems.
