Galaxy Generator / Simulator

Post by CodexHound216 » Sat Dec 02, 2017 7:30 pm

For awhile I wanted a way to simulate a galaxy of stars, planets and moons in real time 3D for an rts game and this galaxy simulator / generator has been the output of that idea so far. Planets and moons down to the recursion level of moons having their own child orbits can be generated. Everything orbits its parent in real time including the stars orbiting the black hole in the center. Clicking on an object will give some details about it.

Note: esc is the menu key. I didn't think it needed its own button. Also this is more of a proof of concept right now even though it does work for it's purposes. Another thing to note is having a recursion depth greater than 0 with more than 500 stars can take a lot of memory on your system. I am not responsible for freezes.
