Hello! I have a new project again, a Newtonian gravity simulator made (almost entirely) from memory (because I made this in C# and Raylib yesterday). It is likely not perfect, I notice some issues that I can't quite work out, so please tell me how I can improve it if you can!
It's super cool! Much better than anything I could do.
I have a question, though- is there a way to (how do I say this) time-lapse it? As in run the simulation faster? I would be interested in seeing the program run for a long time, but I don't have the time (haha).
Oddly enough, it runs the fastest for me when I have both turbo mode and visible stepping enabled. No idea why though
Hmm. I just tried it out, and that happens for me too. Thanks!
Single stepping, ?incidentally?, acts as the
Live coding support (experimental)Shift, which usually speeds things up a bit by not copying the thread bodies.
Also this functions is twice as fast as original one (9-12 > 4 ms)
I just did scenario 1 with gravity 10, and they got slingshot-ed all over the stage.
That would compromise the accuracy of the simulation, also no sadly.
Thank you, it's been updated, I've been able to do this in C# but I wasn't sure if I was able to add lists together like that in Snap!.
Planets can now collide and merge.
You can zoom in and out with + and -
You can pan using WASD.
Although the Snap! stage is two-dimensional, actual planets are three-dimensional, so shouldn't the size (the linear measure) of a planet be the cube root of its mass, not the square root?
Hello! I'm back.
That's true, I've just updated it.
Sorry for necroposting, but I can't do much about being unexpectedly absent due to the school year ending. My home situation doesn't accommodate.
Edit: I don't expect myself to be present during the latter half of 2023 and more than likely the first half of 2024, when I go to college I'll have more opportunities to go online.
This is amazing! @mods feature???
(If this is not already featured, this is my first time seeing it)
(Also I’m talking about hte project)
I went back to the top of the thread, hit the green flag, hit ENTER (not typing anything into the ASK box), and it froze.
Should it just play a default selection if you don't enter anything? You're supposed to enter a scenario #.
Edit to the Edit: Nevermind, summer of 2023 is probably gonna be the last summer I'm not around, stuff changes fast.
It's good programming practice to deal gracefully with unexpected user input
