Planet Discoverers:

Sends a space probe out to find planets, then goes back to planet where deployed.
Right click planet, push button, they are deployed...comes back to planet where deployed!

if you realy want to simulate it, play OMNI IV.

But onmi doesn't have [simple] collisions,  or even things that orbit, if you could put US and Omni together... AWESOME!!

More: Evolving Life

But, I still think just life that is pixels as cities, only large ones, and a spaceship that you and them can actually fly. Since the chances are so small... You can choose to make them larger, and go quicker (not time, just evolution), or to just get spaceships going around to kill or fly yourself there should be a button to just pop it on a habitable planet. If there is none:

Sometimes, make a new planet and it gives you terrestrial planets to chose from, and it asks you to upload or make a new map (new idea), or it pops on the closes terrestrial planet or moon.

Question

Do you have words (like in a box over a button almost anywhere on the computer) pop up when you mouse over a "new object".

Texture Maker
Simple, an in game texture maker. You can see it as a globe and edit, or as a map, and it saves it in some map folder.

Yes, I like the texture maker idea though. Just with some basic Paint-like tools deployed, so you can draw the map at a globe. As soon as the map has been drawn as a base it can always be edited in a flat, normal image editor like Photoshop etc.

Selection Box & Multiple Planet Selection:[/b]
Just allow it users to draw selection boxes (with a tool?) and simply allow users select multiple objects by holding shift and clicking on multiple objects.

I'm working on this right now.

Ultra-Light:

A light that hot enough to burn planets into dust particles.

You can tune the 3d, but... those are almos tthe same color.

Ideas that are impossible but Awesome!
you have a space ship and you can land on a habitable planet, you see real city's, tree's, people. you can take off or land. wen its night, you see the planets in the sky, and when its day you see your sun :) when a planet got destroyed or moved from it habitable place, it burns or gets destroyed. you can land on asteroids to see from the asteroid, or Destroy him before it destroys your planet.

wouldn't that be AWESOME?!

I wouldn't call it impossible. If I've discovered anything over the last few years of working on Universe Sandbox it's that nothing is impossible, it just may take a long time. I think my younger self might have called what I've created with Universe Sandbox 2 impossible, but clearly it wasn't.

I agree, the idea is awesome.

Supernova
When you right click a star you should have the option to make it go supernova and see it's affect on orbiting bodies. Also when stars collide they should go supernova.

Fully Customizable Rings:
A function which allows the user, to make his own planetary rings by setting two distances from the selected mass. The first distance describes at which distance the ring begins, the second distance describes at which distance the ring ends. Before the user is done with making his ring, he still can adjust the density of it. ...

I got this working today. This will be in Universe Sandbox 2.

Yes, the supernova idea is great. It might be hard to make them turn into nebulae however, at least right now I think. Perhaps they should be turned into dust instead until some nebula-things have been coded into the program? I guess it would take long time to make that.

Laws of Physics:

Being able to change the laws of physics in US! What you have is a text box for a few laws, like gravity, and the speed of light! Then you can change them. Yes, there is gravity, but (i don't think) that is the law, just the strength.

How about that, but you are able to change not just gravity, and the constant "c", but also be able to change magnetism, antigravity, inflation, and orbital properties (like square, circle, ellipse, triangle, polygon orbits)
