Universe Sandbox
« on: February 06, 2016, 12:01:48 AM »
Has anyone had a play around with this so called Game? - http://universesandbox.com/


I have been given a copy recently so was playing around with it on Twitch earlier. Whilst most people chatting to me just wanted me to use it to fling moons at planets and such things, it seems quite an interesting programme.


I had a bit a fun trying to set up a binary star solar system but I think I am missing lots.


I am a bit disappointed I couldn't test the concept of "2010" and turn Jupiter into a star to see what it did to Europa.. darn game won't treat Jupiter as a star no matter what I do.


Anyone interested in seeing in the game can see my highlights of a little testing I did whilst getting requests from ppl online.
