Many kinds of stars fill the galaxy. The properties of a star have a strong effect on the planets in its system and subsequently the minerals that can be found on those planets.

Size Classification[edit]

Larger stars will have more planets. Those planets tend to be more treacherous but have more valuable minerals. They are rated (from smallest to largest):

  • Dwarf Star
  • Giant Star
  • Supergiant Star

Some star types have special attributes.

Color Classification[edit]

The color of a star indicates how hot it is (directly dependent on how much energy it outputs). Hotter stars have a significantly higher chance of having more mineral rich worlds around them. They are rated (from coldest to hottest):

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • White
