A good feature for Universe Sandbox 2 would be and option to make a star go supernova and see it's affect on orbiting bodies. Also when stars collide they should go supernova.

another cool feature would be a collision mode where planets break apart.

Another interesting feature to include is a system to determine the surface temperature and black body temp. You could even use this to determine what "type" of planet it is. (Such as a greenhouse, garden, or ice world)

That could be good idea, but the textures cannot change.

Any reason why not? (I'm not really familiar with programming, so I'm just throwing out ideas) Or if the textures can't change, maybe a way to alter the color slightly? For example a world that falls in the range of garden world would appear slightly more green.

Yeah, that is possible, but you have override the colors to change a green world into a black one.

...but the textures cannot change.

Anything is possible, it's all about how long it might take to implement.

(It is true that it's not currently easy to change the texture of a body.)

Yes. This is something we're very interested in implementing, but it won't be in the initial release of v2 as that feature set has been locked.
