Planetary radii shift
« on: May 24, 2019, 03:05:40 AM »
Now after saving a simulation and playing back, the radius of the planets shifted slightly.
Jupiter shrunk from 69911 to 69874 km in radius.
Saturn grew from 58232 to 58579 km in radius.
Uranus is the same though.
Neptune grew from 24622 to 26110 km in radius.
Venus grew 10 km bigger in radius.
Mercury no problem though.
The Moon lost 100 km in radius.
Not to mention Neptune's now bigger than Uranus with this new bug.

This simulation will give you an example of the unexpected radii bug encountered.

  • Universe Sandbox 2 is my favourite simulator.

Yes, you're right. Thanks for reporting this bug. There is a radius bug which causes all planets to either shrink or expand. Please forward this bug to the developers.
