Planets 3D 1.3 reviewDownload
The purpose of Planets 3D is to show a simulation of our solar system
The purpose of Planets 3D is to show a simulation of our solar system. The focus lies on a nice graphic (3D OpenGL) and the possibility to modify the objects of the solar system to see what happens.
This program is written on Linux using C++. In theory it should be portable to windows, because I've used only plattform independent libraries. Anyone who tries to port it please contact me even if unsuccessful, perhaps I can help overcome arising errors.
By now there is included a small program which converts different coordinate systems into each other. It is called Astroconvert.
Here are some key features of "Planets 3D":
simulate the development of the solar system based on calculations of the gravity power
load and save solar systems
switch between different cameras to view the solar system (e.g. look through a shuttle window)
