in the next update can you see how long a planet circles around a star?

Just got this working. Not only can you see how long it will take for a full orbit, this value is also editable (which updates the body's semi major axis).



This is the formula I used:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbital_period#Two_bodies_orbiting_each_other

I use a to solve for P -or- If you change P then I solve for a.
a = semi major axis
P = orbital period

this makes it only harder to wait.  :(

Just as someone said, the longer you wait, the better it is.

I want to wait...because the longer I wait, the longer I can play with the version I have...right?

Or can I keep it and download the one over mine...
