Every UArt where Pyrotechnic Mortar Construction is unlocked can teach the two basic star recipes, Flying Frog and Squat Canary. New stars can be designed using a Portable Star Lab; the lab is then turned in to a UArt, enabling the recipe for a new star to be available from that UArt.
Stars are made in a Star Rack. Max Batch size is 100.
- All stars need a binder:
- Beeswax - for Comet and Ball-type stars, which diffuse in 'pulses'.
- Cactus Sap - for Comet, Ball, and Line-type stars, all of which diffuse in either pulses or as a straight line.
- Clay - for 'popper' stars, which diffuse all in one burst at the end of their fire.
- Tar - for 'sparkler' stars, which diffuse in sparks throughout their runs.
- All stars need some quantity of Sulfur and Charcoal.
- All stars need some variety of Metal Salts.
- Some stars also need Aluminum Powder.
To open new star recipes, please see Portable Star Lab.
For this table, please use the cost of producing a batch of TEN (10) Stars
For Star Type, please use one of the following:
- Pulsing - these have a strong glow on the first star, and usually leave a simple trail. There is considerable variability in the size of the star, and the length of the trail. The basic frog and canary designs are this type.
- Cone (comets) - Have a strong glow at the front, and diffuse into a short 'cone' shape.
- Bomb (poppers) - These are often hard to see, since they fly their lifetime unignited, and then explode at the end. Single poppers are useful as near-invisible platforms for delivering other stars, while showers of many poppers can be an impressive finale.
- Trail ("Thin Red Line") - Long thin trails of light, often used for spirals and geometric shapes.
- Sparkler - These are typically crowd favorites. They leave a shower of sparks as a trail, usually but not always in the same color as the head of the star.
