Stupid question - have you tried turning down your bloom in the video options?

I know that planet. Even with bloom off, it's very bright to the point of painful. But I have eyes that are very sensitive to light, my nightvision is excellent. And no turning down gamma isn't an option, as this one planet and one ground explore map are the only two that are overly bright.

I've seen them as well. Just report it to Cryptic as a graphic bug. I typically put in the describe the problem box something along the lines of "AHHHHHH! MY EYES!! IT BURNS!!!" followed by a very calm explanation of, "hey, i'm flying into a sun. wasn't aware that i could explore the surface of the sun. Sweet."

Do not worry, you are not the only one seeing these glowing planets, even with reduced gloom.

Maybe this is supposed to be an atmosphere. Apparently on fire...

Secondly, try turning the lights on in your mom's basement.
If you're not going to contribute something meaningful to a thread, don't bother making a post. Got it?

Turning down bloom doesn't help, it's a texture issue - not a bloom or gamma issue. For some reason, the texture being used is similiar to the one being used on the sun.
