Universe Sandbox 2.0.3 Released
« on: May 08, 2010, 08:51:53 PM »
What's New in Version 2.0.3?
- Two new activities: Speed of Light & Creating Rings around our Moon
- Reorganized View Controls, now in 3 different sections: Simulation, View, & Screen
- More tooltips for view controls.
- Textboxes work much better. Double click to select a single number or unit, triple click to select all text, Home and End keys now work, and simple support for keyboard based cut, copy, and paste (Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V).
- Minor improvements to ring properties panel.
- Added Orbit Parent button for box select.
- And other minor bug fixes.

Let me know if you're having any problems with the new version. Thanks!

When you open the "Create Rings around the Moon", it says Speed of Light on the tutor box. Is it suppose to say "Create Rings Around the Moon"?

Awesome. :)
Creating rings around the moon made an interesting shape. The ring goes far out and slightly down, then it loops up and goes back. Here is a screenshot, the shape is in the left side [picture 1].

When I press the arrow keys or use home and enter, this text appears in the panel [picture 2].

I really like the speed of light tutorial. :)
