219.164.129.65 03:58, 15 August 2016 (UTC)There are no green stars in our actual universe. So it shouldn't be on that page in the same list.

Response[edit source]

I have separated the green entry from the other items in the table with a blank row, and added the following disclaimer:

Note: this color/type of star does not exist in the Terran universe, but does in the universe of NMS

Question[edit source]

Where does this information come from? I mean the descriptions of the letters, and the temperatures? Is it in any way related to how it is implemented in the game? If not, this entire page needs to be redone based on facts in the game.

the page specifies that this information is based on our "real" world and how stars are classified. There are a couple of differences which have been indicated on the page (such as green stars), but the information is out there as-is. What changes were you suggesting? My general thought is that even if a particular class of stars has not yet been found in the NMS universe, that doesn't mean that it won't be later during a release. As long as the page contains the disclaimer that "this is from Terra", I'm ok with what's out there. Thoughts? Ddfairchild (talk) 16:14, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

I think it's misleading and unnecessary. If the game does not keep track of star temperature, it shouldn't be in here. If star system generation doesn't actually make use of the modifiers the letters imply, it shouldn't be in here. Wikipedia is a good place if people want to learn about space, this is not the appropriate wiki for general space things that could one day be in No Man's Sky.
