    SolarSystem v1.0 has been released!

    Hello!

    I would like to inform that SolarSystem v1.0 has been released!

    TrueArt's Solar System is plugin to generate fully rigged Solar System.
    Planets move around Sun in elliptical orbits (fully key-framed).
    It does support things like perihelion, aphelion, orbital inclination, orbital period of planet, radius of object.

    You can read more and see video here:
    http://solarsystem.trueart.eu



    SolarSystem plugin together with UniverseSimulator generated Sun, planets and Milky Way stars (imported from database of stars).




    A few more screen-shots and renders are in Star travel thread:

    yes..this is nice and cool..

    Will probably not need it though, could just set it up manually..and if I am not in need of exact astronomical motion and just only doing visual animations...but who knows...
    would be great if all planets also had itīs moon, with corresponding correct astronomical facts....a lot of work though to incorporate those I guess.

    For just fun stuff I kling on o the free version of universe sandbox, and might actually take a look at the commercial version, though it is absolutly awesome as an astronomical fun/educational tool...one would like to get the simulations out of there and in to some animation package, and not only planet sims but also other astronomic events such as galaxy simulated stuff.

    Does not say it on the ordering page, just Win32

    Are there any of the moons of these planets.

    The moons will get difficult once you get to Jupiter and Saturn that have 129 known satellites between them right now...

    Yes its allot Ben but most of the orbits are fairly well known now. Its should not be to hard to have orbits about something on another orbit.

    itīs just a matter of time, and doing one moon per half hour or so wonīt be that long to finally finish I guess

    And I think I have found my place in the universe, check the moon in the middle(yes itīs me ), that moon is also next to the moon pandora, which in the fiction avatar is on a completly different solarsystem at alpha centauri.
    PS...screenshots are from the universe sandbox not the release of solar system v.1.0...donīt wanīt to confuse anyone here.

    I donīt see any planetery axis rotation, Im not sure what that actually is called to be astronomically correct? (Equatorial rotation velocity
    ?)
    It would look much cooler if they had those too
    I would also fancy a way of displaying and rendering orbital path, can someone make renderable paths please...and as smooth as possible.

    That's not a problem at all, but don't forget that you need at least one null per moon so it will be a very crowded Scene Editor is all. I always do the inner solar system as an exercise with my students when they first start studying Layout to get them used to parenting and hierarchies in general. If you then take precession and axial tilt into consideration, it becomes still more crowded.

    PS. If you still have Pluto in there Sensei, will you include Ceres and Haumea, two other dwarf planets in the solar system?

    Agreed Ben allot more crowded in the scene editing but its only nulls and spheres.

    1 frame of anim is 1 Earth's day.
    So even if they would rotate, you wouldn't see difference.
    Or it would be so fast (planet's day < 24h) that it could look like rotation in opposite direction..
