In addition to a name and location, Star Clusters have three important parameters:
The radiation temperature of a Star Cluster is between 1,000°W and 65,000°W, and averages 32,500°W.
The mass of a Star Cluster can be between 3,000 KT and 18,000 KT, and averages 10,500 KT.
The radius of a Star Cluster core can be between 15 and 64 light-years, and averages 39.5 light-years. The area of a Star Cluster core can be between 706 to 12,868 square light-years, and averages 5,525 square light-years. This value is not related to the mass of the Star Cluster. Planets can't be placed in the Star Cluster core.
The color of a Star Cluster depends on the temperature, as follows:
Temperature Range Color 0-3,000 Red 3,001-6,000 Yellow 6,001-10,000 Brown 10,001-20,000 White 20,001- Blue
The radius of the Radiation Halo is determined by the mass of the Star Cluster.
(Radiation Halo Radius) = SQRT(Star Cluster Mass)
The maximum radiation in a Star Cluster is at the center, where it is:
(Temperature) / 100The radiation level has a linear gradient between that point and the edge of the Radiation Halo. The following formula can be used to determine the radiation at any gived distance from the center of the Star Cluster:
(Radiation) = CEIL((Temperature) / 100 * (1 - dist / radiationRadius))
