While is is true that White Dwarfs emit much radiation, they are at a temp of:
AND in fact, in reality, they have no “jet cones”. While this does render them dangerous on a temperature sense, (Sirius A is a powerful star that only emits 9,000 K) you’ll see that it’s no match for a neutron star.
On the other hand, neutron stars can be about:
And there are jet cones in real life. And it’s GRBs are like a giant pulse laser.
I just feel like sometimes it’s immersion breaking when White Dwarfs scare the living daylights out of me, when neutron stars look harmless. It makes no logical sense.
I understand that the developers can mold a universe based off their own perception and craft it with love. And that’s great. But this galaxy is meant to be an accurate representation of our galaxy, and a lot of the data we know in real life about white dwarfs and neutron stars makes no logical sense in this game. And don’t get me started on black holes!
