I said that I'm working on finalizing the galaxy screen. Well, here's one more thing that I just finished!
And they twinkle as well! It was tricky getting them to scroll properly. Most games just cheat in this area, if a star falls off screen, warp it around. But in this game, if you click on a location, and the stars just randomly move around, it'll disorient you. So every background star has an actual coordinate that is converted based on it's "layer" when it's drawn. The result is a consistent starfield that don't change no matter where you're looking in the galaxy.
There's still some tweaks to be done (maybe reduce the amount of background stars?), but it's making the game feel more lively!
