In Universe Sandbox, matter isn't simulated as single particles, but "only" as bodies with different mass, so a black hole will probably interact the same way as a planet or a star would, it's only the mass of the object that makes the difference.

I don't know how it's going to look with the new glowing stars though.

Yeah, if anyone reads this who has Universe Sandbox 2 could send me a pic of the black holes or anything that would be great!

Actually, no one has US2 except Dan. However, Beta Members (like me) have Beta US 2. We will have US 2 Beta 2.

I don't think Dan has allowed us to release screenshots from the beta. I think he wants people to wait until the final release, except the pictures he's uploading himself.
People trying early prototypes, alphas and betas often get disappointed by how they look, because they have trouble understanding that it's not the final program, so many developers wait until the final release before they make it public.
