Author Topic: Throwing asteroids at Sun causes strange Sun fragments and graphical behavior  (Read 2029 times)

I decided to throw some asteroids at the sun and got some strange results.  The asteroids that I was using were Ceres and Chariklo in the Powers menu, though I wonder if this would work with any such asteroid.
After impact, some Sun Fragments made of 100 percent iron with very high masses and velocities were flung into space.  I have a screenshot depicting the properties menu of one of these fragments as well as another bug: when I clicked faraway objects (like these fragments; they were near the orbit of Sedna by the time I hit the pause button) the objects would visually inflate to disproportionate sizes.  I'll attach a log file of me replicating this bug as well, though I took a cursory look at an earlier one from this bug and didn't see much.
Screenshot and log should be attached.

It's not inflating, the camera has zoomed in on the object.

Lol you should expect everything else though. Collisions are crazy for now.

Just throw Jupiter into the Sun and see the results.

The collisions are very much in progress in the current Alpha. Thomas and I are working hard on fixing all the issues. In the meantime, you can expect a lot of really bizzare behavior...

Collisions isn't realistic yet in the current alpha.

The developers would post it if it was available just wait we still don't know but for me i think it is about 2 more months for the public alpha to be released.

I experience this problem with just about every planet.  If I launch 2 asteroids in the same position, at the same angle by pressing 1, strange occurrences follow...
