There probably are a number of ways to do this.
This is what I came up with quickly.

I used a Shaper Source, Radial Cloner Effect and another Shaper Source to fill in the middle.
I left the colors in so the edges can be seen.

The shaper works with so called Signed Distance fields. The type of Shapes we can add are limited because they have to able to be described through a mathematical function.
The Star shape is possible though, so i'll have a look if i can add it.

Is it possible to add additional shapes using a vector file or such in a new generator?

If you'd create your own plugin, that should be no problem probably.

Do you have a specific shape in mind you'd like to add?
