so like i wanted to be able to see civilization develop in solar systems, so like click on a planet and see "Saguans are developing spacecrafts" or "ponies evolving to walk on two legs" etc.

A life feature would be an interesting idea but possibly out of the development scope.
If life were a feature, being able to see them plan missions to other planets would be interesting.

Well it doesn't have to be that advance, just like after x time y species will get to stage z, put description blablabla on planet n

I feel like this might be a good DLC for this game.

spacecraft guiding though would be nice

(like in GravitySimulator)

Downloadable Content; it's basically an expansion pack y it costs money.

DLC of a special code/ special option for planets to inhabit civilization. And over time you will start to see buildings and stuff.
after tens of thousands of years the buildings start to punch through the atmosphere.

Just a thought, but could there be a way to lock a particular background so that it is used through any save?

That is like spore but is not spore is universe sandbox
By the way It is a great idea

hey universe sandbox has galaxies
spore has galaxies
but spore isn't universe sandbox!

That correlation is irrelevant but okay.
I like the life idea, but maybe it could implemented after the more important stuff has gone through completion.

Make the tilt of the planet affect the seasons more. Right now the seasons are very "weak" compared to what they should be. For example over the course of a year only like the UK snows up and then un-snows.

Evolution would be awesome. To see species form over millions of years and get outsurvived by other species with better adaption etc., but it would be EXTREMELY difficult to make.

That's much better suited for an evolution sim because you're not likely at all to see the actual creatures

Some ideas :

1) Important: Ability to import formatted data from JPL Horizons (it is easy to receive it by mail, the idea would import the addon "Horizons" of Gravity Simulator to the Universe Sandbox) for simulating accurately the events in our solar system.

2) Rotating Frame: allows visualization of the effects of orbital resonance, it would be lovely to observe the US 3 simulating the Hilda family of asteroids (with gravitational resssonace with Jupiter), as seen here (plus Trojans asteroids), simulated by SOLEX integrator :



3) Kosai Mechanism, to accurately simulate the orbital evolution of planets and moons, especially the hot Jupiter exoplanets that are very close of your host stars, and normal moons too in simulations of moons gravitational captures.

4) Implementation of the action Yarkovsky effect, crucial for accurate simulation of the secular evolution of small bodies such as asteroids

5) Importation of TLE data of satellites for accurate simulation of their positions and orbital evolution.

6) Influence of solar radiation on the Earth's atmosphere through manual insertion of the KP index ( satellites affects the consequent expansion or reduction of the height of our atmosphere ) , would allow to forecast the reentry of satellites .

7) Possibility to import the observational data obtained by the software UFOcapture (specialized in capture of meteors by allsky cameras), that not only enable tracing paths of meteor showers and fireballs over the planet but also to determine the orbit of the stream of particles that create them. Currently there is the possibility of designing the 3D trajectories of meteors in Google Earth (technique used to determine the trajectory, impact point and orbit of the meteor Chelyabinsk )

Example of projected orbit traced by UFOOrbit:



Example of projected trajectory of meteors in Google Earth:



8 ) Importing of data of software Systemic for simulation of the orbit of candidates to exoplanets.


9) Solar wind , would be interesting to simulate solar sails in Universe Sandbox or even the effect of the solar radiation over comet tails.

Like is possible to do with the software Framsticks:

Would be cool if we can create the planets in US3 and also create life and that life evolves within realistic Darwinian mechanisms (including suffering the effects of ecological relationships) !
