    Do it here!

    For extra difficulty, try making one that functions ok.

    unfortunately, most of the planets and such that i create manage to smash in to the sun or go careening off in to the cold reaches of space :frown1::redface:

    I know, it's really difficult to get a functioning solar system

    Still going, but not enough planets to support my ego.

    my first several attempts failed, the first was the funniest cos one planet orbited just lovely but the smaller two must have been ufo's cos they zipped off the screen as quick as a blink.

    Eventually i managed to keep them all orbitting with relative safety, one would eventually collide with the other in time as paths crossed, but it would be a very long time given their orbitting patterns.

    Quite fun and better than making your own kaliedoscope

    Anyone else had their system visited by a foreign astronomical object?

    Thankfully the sun made quick work of it.

    I managed to keep two moving for several minutes before clicking restart, then, I crashed all of them in 4 seconds flat! I'll keep trying until I can get them all to orbit perfectly.
