Extreme tidal heating incosistency.
« on: December 10, 2016, 03:11:28 AM »
I created sim containing only Earth and moon orbiting at distance of 30 000 kilometers.
In motion tab tidal heating is around 200 000 000 MW. But in temperature tab tidal heating is only 2 Watts.

It happens with all objects in every configuration.

Time compression and editing orbits also does weird stuff to tidal heating. Fixes are in order.
