Hi all,

I have made a custom image class for Phaser 3 to generate a sky for a small asteroids style game (the first with Phaser 3).

Here is the demo: https://jjcapellan.github.io/skygenerator/

Complete source code here: https://github.com/jjcapellan/skygenerator/blob/master/dist/skygenerator.js

This class does the following:

- Generates two coordinate maps with transparencies.
- Creates a texture for the clouds and three for the stars using a graphics object.
- Using the map data, repeatedly draws the previous textures in a new texture that will be applied to the image itself.

My first difficulty was getting a smooth gradient fill in a circle using the Graphics class. This was my best solution at the moment:

```
/**
* Makes a "brush" based on overlayed semitransparent circles to get a gradient of transparency
* f(x) = minRadius + k*x*x ------> x = step in for loop; f(x) = radius (quadratic easing in)
* @param {number} radius
* @param {number} gradient Number between 0 and 1. 1 = Max softness.
* @param {boolean} isStar
* @return {Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics}
* @memberof SkyGenerator
*/
makeBrush(radius, gradient, isStar) {
let brush = this.scene.add.graphics();
let steps = Math.round(200 * gradient);
let k = (radius - 1) / (steps * steps);
let alpha = this.starAlpha / steps;
let prevRadius = 0;
if (alpha < 0.005) alpha = 0.005;
brush.setVisible(false);
for (let i = 0; i < radius + 1; i++) {
brush.fillStyle(0xffffff, alpha);
let r = Math.round(1 + i * i * k);
if (r < 1) r = 1;
if (r > radius) r = radius;
// prevents draw two times same circle
if (r == prevRadius) {
continue;
} else {
prevRadius = r;
}
brush.fillCircle(0, 0, r);
}
if (isStar) {
if (this.starHardness == 0) this.starHardness = 0.001;
brush.fillStyle(0xffffff, this.starAlpha);
brush.fillCircle(0, 0, radius * this.starHardness);
}
return brush;
}
```

Here some samples:

I still need to improve the point generation algorithm, since they tend to cluster in the same place.

This is my humble contribution to the community . I hope someone finds it useful.

Greetings.
