Volume in liters is not calculated correctly
« on: December 20, 2017, 08:06:04 AM »
There seems to be a mistake at the unit conversion to liters. I discovered that by accident when looking at a molten dwarf planet (after I blew up the sun ::)) which has a radius of 263km.
As volume, it displays 7.61E+13 liters, which is 6 orders of magnitude too small for a sphere of this size.
In other units, the value is calculated correctly as 7.61E+16 m3 and 0.0373 earth's oceans but should be equal to 7.61E+19 liters.

I also checked other bodies in my dying solar system and can therefore confirm that this mistake is consistant.

Sounds to me like someone typed a "/" before the 1000 instead of a "*"

That's what I'm thinking as well, so I guess it should be fairly easy to fix this.
