The Newest Gravity Changes

Posted in: Gravity Simulator, Wednesday Update | May 8, 2013 | No Comments

The new gravity simulator has been making some great progress.  I’ve been spending a lot of time translating the game over to HTML5, and hoping it’ll be worth it.  I can’t wait to see the game on tablets and mobile devices.

But, as always, it’s not so much about what progress I’ve made (zoom capability, fast loading times… uh, not-crashing), it’s about what progress I’ve made that *looks good in pictures.*  So here are a couple new features that I’m excited about:


The old game always had white lines against a black background, but now you’ll be able to change that at will.

Dust Particles

In the old version, you could fling up to 7 asteroids.  Now?  No limit!  Even more than that, there’s a new tool where you can put ‘dust particles’ into your solar system.  Basically it’s a set of bodies with semi-random positions and velocities.  Helpful for charting out the gravitational pull in your system… and also just plain cool.

So all in all things are moving along for the Gravity simulator.  I’m still (as always) taking suggestions and comments about the old version and features you’d like to see in this new version.
