A Graph Mode
« on: January 05, 2009, 06:58:53 AM »
I think they're should be a graph mode. Like you click on "Graph Mode" while viewing something, and type in a code like:
Graph(x, y, xstep, ystep)
And if you typed in
Graph(Object38.Velocity, Sun3.Velocity, 100km, 2000km)
And it turns it into a graph like:


8000km|
6000km|
4000km|
2000km|__________________
--------.0|100km| 200km| 300km
Where x is Object38's velocity, and y is Sun3's velocity. And also it would be useful if you added a "Calculate Formulae"
e.g.
A diagonal line equally between x any y would be x=y and y=x
Where a diagonal line equally between y=x and y would be y = 2x. And if the line didn't cross through the centre it could be y = 2x + 3. Also you should be able to enter a formulae and it too calculate a graph.

Your idea is very intriguing, but forgive me for not being more imaginative...

What is the end goal?
Are you wanting to be able to plot and compare the velocities of various bodies?
What else could this be used for?
