Amazing size comparison of everything. I like your videos. Upload them on YouTube.

Universe Sandbox | Discussion / Planet Appearance
« Last post by Plasmic Physics on May 24, 2019, 02:54:56 PM »
Just an idea, but could the albedo be linked to the combined luminosity (HLS colour model) and reflectivity of a planet's water, land and atmosphere? This results in a planet with 0 albedo to appear black, with a matte solid surface, and a planet with 1 albedo appears white, with a gloss surface.

And what about linking the air density to the opacity of the atmosphere? This would result in being able to observe how the atmosphere of Venus gradually becomes clearer with lower air pressure. I think that it would also be good to add a disable button for people who like to have it their way.

Universe Sandbox is a great simulator but there are no tasks for users to complete. My suggestion is for Universe Sandbox to have missions so that players can earn rewards, and complete missions like going on for an adventure. Please add missions to Universe Sandbox.

Universe Sandbox | Support & Bugs / Re: binary glitch?
« Last post by Jar on May 24, 2019, 11:02:21 AM »
so, when I was trying to make my brown dwarf system, the brown dwarf and one of the moons suddenly became binary! help?
What do you mean by suddenly became binary?

One note: the "orbital parent" does not affect the actual simulation of gravity and movement. It is simply a reference used when drawing orbital lines when Orbits are turned on. It can also affect things like using "Auto Orbit," which will set the velocity according to that. I've probably mentioned this before to you, tkulogo, but we do want to make improvements to setting up binaries in the future.

My question here is how this might relate to a situation where something becomes binary accidentally.  :)

This has been a problem for a long time. I'm hoping for a day when we can select the orbital parent, and be able to select barycenters for binaries. The orbits in my 268 body system are all over the place because of this limitation.

Universe Sandbox | Support & Bugs / Planetary radii shift
« Last post by Gregory on May 24, 2019, 03:05:40 AM »
Now after saving a simulation and playing back, the radius of the planets shifted slightly.
Jupiter shrunk from 69911 to 69874 km in radius.
Saturn grew from 58232 to 58579 km in radius.
Uranus is the same though.
Neptune grew from 24622 to 26110 km in radius.
Venus grew 10 km bigger in radius.
Mercury no problem though.
The Moon lost 100 km in radius.
Not to mention Neptune's now bigger than Uranus with this new bug.

This simulation will give you an example of the unexpected radii bug encountered.
