This addon is very good, the detail is excellent, however, the Sun is yellow-orange, looks white due its brightness but in fact the sun IS yellow-orange, ok?

Yet this a really good addon. The animated solar surface have a outstanding detail!

Great job. At first I thought that the flames would have been unrealistic and horrible, but when I saw them I immediately changed my mind. You can not see the core, that's good, and the animated texture is wonderful.
Great job, Greg.

This addon is awesome! It's actually YELLOWISH WHITE instead of orange. Great Job.

This addon is really good with the new 2010 texture. If you look closely, you can see the Sun's active texture. To prove it, press ctrl+w.

Sure seems like the most realistic solar texture here. The others are far too yellow, some even orange. It's supposed to be just a hint of yellow, almost white. This seem to come pretty close, while maintaining a high texture quality!

This is a nice effect for such a relatively small file, complete with moving solar flares.
