Title: My planet keeps freezing
Post by: ahoop on August 14, 2015, 06:01:19 PM
I put in an Earth and resized the radius to 7645 km (the mass is 1.88 Earths now), then I put a Sun-sized star. I want the planet to be a bit warmer than Earth, but it keeps freezing -_-

Edit: It doesn't start warming up until it's inside the margin of red and green Goldilocks' zones.. Then it gets too hot.

did you check the albedo? that can also affect the temp quite a bit

Ok thanks, I put the albedo to .14, then after about 100 years it stabilized to 17.4C. I lost my first moon right between South America and Africa though, lol.
