    I prefer the white, or maybe white with a little bit of color deviance away from white, but the color would be cooler if the individual stars didn't change thier colors (as I said in the other thread)
    Away.

    A mixture of the two. Not quite white; not quite rainbow. I'm pretty sure there are certain hues which stars do not glow. Look it up, slave.

    yeah, I just mean no flashing stuff. It's distracting.
    Away.

    I like the second one, but you don't want to make it look too much like a bag of skittles, it might come off as a little "fruity."

    yeah, white is better, as since the stars are supposed to be far away, one usually cant tell the color of stars with the naked eye. If anything, just make them white with a hint of red,green,blue,orange,or yellow.

    yeah, i think the white looks more realistic. just tint a couple of them. if you want the "twinkle" effect you were using before, it might look better to vary the twinkling at a much slower rate. just a thought
