Release information[edit | edit source]

A star's colour is indicated by the first letter of the star's Spectral class. Much of the above information is courtesy of LoneSeeker777's post on Reddit.[1] Note that these are general results, and there may be exceptions.

Exception: this indicator was not present during the Atlas Rises updates 1.30 through 1.37
