Universe Sandbox | Support & Bugs / Orbital Stability
« Last post by tkulogo on Yesterday at 06:14:36 AM »
I have a moon in my simulation that starts out in a circular 15 hour orbit in the equatorial plane of the planet, both bodies are tidally locked to each other, and the rotational axes are aligned. After a decade or two of simulation, the moon's orbit is inclined and eccentric, and the moon's rotational axis is tilted. I don't know that this is a bug. I suspect I just don't know everything about what makes an orbit stable. Can anyone clue me in? The moon's name is Hammer and is labeled "125 Hammer C4a" in the simulation I've posted in the "share your creations" thread, if that helps.

I never thought to use white dwarfs! I put two in orbit of Gargantua, and they were able to survive! At first they didn't light up much, but all I had to do was raise their temperature, and they now light up the whole system exactly as intended! Thank you

Welcome to the Holas system lets get to the list of objects

Holas: A star 2.50 times the mass of sun and is 1043250 km is is 2 times more brighter then sun and is at a temperature of 5878 k

Hanteris: A ice giant 26 times more larger then earth and 43686 km is radius it is 163 c making it the hottest planet

Viga: A earth like object 1.70 times more massive then earth and is 7771 km in radius it has it's own probe  and moon the planet is at 12 c

Viga observer: The observer of Viga it observers in in space to see how it will change in the future

Lonis: A moon around Viga it is 1.50 times more massive then our moon and is at the radius of 1803 km

Varis: Another rocky planet this one is 1.36 times the mass of earth and at the radius of 8686 km it has 3 moons around it

Vortis: A asteroid at the mass of 1.03E+18 and the radius of 30.4 km it is unknown about this moons past of being around the planet

Tasacas: Another asteroid around Varis this one is at the mass of 5.31E+16 and the radius of 14.5 km this also has a unknown past like Vortis

Votis: The large moon of Varis of 900 km and and at the mass of 6.62E+21 mass it is believed to had formed around the planet

Vupiter: A gas giant 1.50 times the mass of jupiter and at the radius of 100415 km i wont list all of it's moons since there is a lot of them

Jaturn: Another gas giant this one is 159 times more massive then earth and at the radius of 66792 km it has 2 moons

Lisan: A asteroid around Jaturn this moon is 3.21E+17 mass and radius of 27.3  km this moon is sometimes the first moon and sometimes the 2nd moon

Misix: A major moon around Jaturn this one is 1.34 times the mass of moon and at the radius of 1423 km it is like lisan were it is sometimes the 1st and 2nd moon

Malatis: A ice giant 15.8 times the mass of earth it is at the radius of 40014 km it has 4 moons

Mistis: A moon around Malatis it is 2.04E+21 Mass and at the radius of 420 it is one of the pretty objects of the ice giant

Lida: The 2nd moon around Malatis this one is slightly more smaller then Mistis at the mass of 3.83E+20 kg and the radius of 262 km

Voris: The 3rd moon and the 3rd largest moon of the mass of 7.8E+20 and the radius of 359 km

Nitas: The largest moon around Malatis at the mass of 1.04 times the mass of moon and 1592 km it encounters volcanic activity every now and then

Velos the last gaseous planet and 3nd ice giant at the mass of 17.5 times the mass of earth and 44783 km this is the 4th most massive planet is has 3 moons

Nestove: A major moon about 1.20 times more massive then moon and the radius of 1559 km it is the most volcanic moon

Evate: A large major moon about 2.81 masses of moon and at the radius of 1997 km it is the least popular of moons

Lova: the only asteroid around Velos this is at the mass of 7.08E+17 and radius of 34.5 km


2039 QR39: A asteroid around Holas i wont explain the size of the asteroids since they're all small

2025 TL25: another asteroid this ones past is mysterious out of the asteroid

2026 PLA26: Another asteroid this one's secrets are being discovered as this asteroid is being observered

Dwarf planets

Limos: A dwarf planet around Holas it has 4 moons this dwarf planet is 1200 km in radius

Tagis: The first moon it is likely a captured asteroid like the others it is unknown when it was captured

Lopo: Like Tagis this asteroid is a possible captured it holds the 2nd spot

Pemis: The 3rd asteroid it was the 3rd captured like Lopo and Tagis it's past is unknown

Edis: The 4th moon and like Tagis Lopo and Pemis it is captured

Pladis: Another Dwarf planet this one is like Pluto with the white and red colors this one is at the radius of 1562 km

Pharon: The moon around Pladis it is at the radius of 483 km it's the only moon of Pladis and it looks like it's main object due to a rare surface material

2050 TUL50: A Dwarf Planet that does not have a true name yet it is 450 km in radius it has no moons due to a small size

2094 KL94: the farthest dwarf planet it is 320 km it is very dark here due to it's distance from the star it also has no real name yet

Well there you go a single star system with a lot of stuff orbiting it

this was done in an old backup since sadly this shader doesn't support 1.13 yet

Try a ring of cool (4000K) high mass (1.2 solar mass) white dwarfs near the event horizon, just far enough out to not get shredded. The density of the white dwarfs should allow them to be very close to the black hole. I suspect that the nearest one or two will act as the light source for the planet.

I'm trying to recreate the system from the movie Interstellar in game. So far it's been going pretty well, but there's a big glaring issue; all the planets near Gargantua (a super massive black hole at the center of the system) are dark, as it doesn't emit light.

I tried to create a super heated accretion disk to light things up, which is how it works in the movie, but apparently only stars can light up other planets in game. I tried making the accretion disk out of stars, but once they broke up past the point that the game would consider them stars, all the planets would instantly dim, even though that realistically doesn't make sense, since the super heated matter is still there.

My other plan was to simply place some stars in orbit so they could take the place of the accretion disk, but I don't want them to disturb the orbit of planet Miller, which orbits very close to the black hole, as close as I could reasonably put it. Putting the stars close enough inside the orbit of Miller causes them to get destroyed by tidal forces.

I'm aware that the game normally has a generic light source in place for when no stars are in a simulation. Problem is, there is a star; Pantagruel, a neutron star, is in a very far away orbit from the black hole and its' nearby planets, so there is technically a light source, but it's far away, and really shouldn't be producing any light for the currently dark planets.

Is there a solution for this? This is the one thing holding me back from being proud of this recreation.
