To Misc, Bobucles, and West7890,
I am currently working on the Dyson Sphere idea, and Larry Niven's Ringworld. Unfortunatley, changing star's graphics in game right now can't be done through modding, but hopefully once the full mod tools become available, this may happen. What CAN be done is a retexturing and remodeling of stars and planets. Currently, it is hard coded in the game that Star's are not colonizable, only planetary bodies. So I am working on making a planet a star, as such having the chance of finding a prexisting Dyson Sphere or Ringworld.
So right now, plans are only for discovery of these, prebuilt. They would have huge bonuses of course, taking advantage of all that solar power.
So, it's in the works, and I am open to suggestion and comments. The thread to my page is here: https://forums.sinsofasolarempire.com/306277WWW Link
The mod is 7 DEADLY SINS, and will incorporate my SOLAR SINS mod too. I am working on both mods. SOLAR SINS is a stand alone mod, while 7 DEADLY SINS is a combo mod that will incorporate SOLAR SINS within it.
