Universe Sandbox 3 - New Screenshots - November 2012
« on: November 16, 2012, 02:01:29 PM »
These are work-in-progress screenshots of the aftermath of a collision, six black holes in chart mode, and the first screenshot of our procedural galaxy system (a spiral galaxy with 1, 2, and 3 arms).

Universe Sandbox 3 is a major update due out in 2013 for both Windows and Mac. This is a full rewrite of Universe Sandbox in a new 3D engine.

These screenshots largely represent the amazing work of Georg and Eric. Thanks also to Chris and Thomas for making these visuals be manipulable and move in amazing ways.

Looks plenty real to me. Looks pretty cool as well.

Are those chunks of rock in the background oncoming asteroids or are they chunks of rock that got ejected from the big crater?

:D Hurry up with that beta for UBox3. We need something to cool our brains down before they meltdown and go nuclear on us, and trust me that is a VERY bad thing for us. Who else agrees with me on this one? :D

Yes.

Yes this is real, not reel.
This is a screenshot from the aftermath of a simulated collision.

Yes.


Which one or are you not telling, or is it both? Lol. Either answer would be cool anyways.

Sorry... doing a bad job of answering questions before fully reading them.

In that screenshot they are ejected matter from the collision.

Cool, I can just imagine what a planet vs planet scale collision would look like. :D

Your nose tricked you big time.

OT: US3 looks amazing. I want to see some stellar evolution gifs in the next set of screenshots, the camera cut off in the video demonstration :(

That was brilliant! The suns look so detailed up close now. Thanks for linking the video. I never knew about this beforehand.

I can't wait to do this with our own Sun. Seeing the fate of the Solar System.
