pressing y will make the white circle grow big when zoom out and small when zoom in.

1 - Open up "Moons, Small Cluster" (press F2 for list)
2 - Press Y to shoot an awful looking "photon torpedo".

If its center passes through a planet it will explode. This is one of the things you'll be able to do with the action tool (the lightning bolt icon).

It will explode to 20 or 10 or 30 or 40 small moons.

When you change back to old light system, the Sun is still dark.

Titan works, Uranus doesn't.

Uranus is not reflecting

Please be more specific. Where? In what system? Or do you mean the New Body Tool icons?

I added it to "A Sun". Then I changed the lighting, and restarted the system. Titan reflected light, Uranus was dark. (I made Titan and Uranus orbit the Sun)

The new lighting system if far from complete.

Here's a possible workaround:
Try changing the mass of the sun slightly (this will cause the light check to occur again and may turn on the light, if it's off).

Thanks for the info.

Some bugs I found right off the bat was the Find little window doesn't close when you press X.

Also US seems to crash if I slide the speed-accuracy slider all the way to the left.

gas giants don't have textures for systems you load. errr atleast in the solar system things the solar system jumble and the other things with multiple planets..... the ones with like single planets and there moons work fine its just the ones representing the solar system all the gas giants are invisible.

The lighting system makes bodies disappear.

No harm in pointing out the apparently obvious. :)

Also, when you delete the sun in the A Sun simulation, it crashes. Why?

Because new code that I've added assumes that a body will always exist in the simulation and I haven't take the time to fix it to handle this case.

Specifically the crash has to do with calculating the minimum size of a body in the system (and when there's not a body it causes an error).
