To developers: possible black hole improvements
« on: January 28, 2020, 11:16:21 AM »
I tried to make black hole with relatively sustainable AND relatively realistically looking accretion disc. I failed. So it would be cool if developers added option to add accretion discs to the black hole.

Also it would be cool to add two other options.
First - option to add Hawking radiation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawking_radiation
Second - option to add possibility of explosion of the black hole in some stage of it's evolution and it's transformation into white hole (as hypothesised by some physicists working in the field of loop quantum gravity. About this: for example,
https://www.nature.com/news/quantum-bounce-could-make-black-holes-explode-1.15573
https://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1901/1901.04732.pdf ).

I think that it's probably possible to make some very simplified simulations of these effects on game's engine.

If Hawking Radiation were added people would probably just report it as a bug since all it would do is make the black hole shrink over trillion year timescales...that is, except for very light black holes, which would evaporate almost instantly. Only medium sized black holes would evaporate at a watchable rate. And again...people would probably just report it was a bug, "Why can't I make a small black hole? It just disappears as soon as I unpause!" "Why can't I get my black hole to keep the same mass?"

Well, I think it's possible to add features as optional, so people will be able to enable/disable them.

  • Universe Sandbox 2 is my favourite simulator.

Black holes are fine, but it would be a cool addition to be able to colorize its center.
