Re: Interesting gravity laws

I first looked at the orbits of planets using different inverse laws. 1/r^2 produces elliptical orbits and seems to be the only inverse law to produce elliptical orbits. 1/r produces flower shaped orbits. I tried to get stable orbits with 1/r^3 but I couldn't :( r^3 produces flower shaped orbits and...

Re: Suggestions! (new)

Being able to adjust the number of dimensions would be nice. I would like to be able to see rather planets orbit the same way using varying inverse laws if the number of dimensions is different. In 4d it's possible to have a double rotation rather than just a single rotation so I want to see if that...
