Version 1.67

July 19, 2016

Stars in planetary system scenes can be now black holes (it will automatically redimension itself and give sufficient mass) when selected. 
Moreover, the moon, Io and Enceladus environments are now available.

Version 1.67

July 8, 2016

Small update in which the user can now use textures .png and jpeg from an internet link (in my own planet scene).

Version 1.64

        2. Avoid superposition when changing between planets in the Solar System and others. 
        3. Error that made the planet in planet generator unable to rotate has been corrected. 
        4. Create your own mission: Night time and accelerator. 
        5. One potential error corrected in the planetary generation and other minor ones.

Here i leave you another picture.

Version 1.3 
February 16, 2015

Here i leave you a screenshot of the new content, being Spanish the language chosen this time.

Version 1.2
December 18, 2014

These are the new things of this version:
  •  New things (2) :
       1.  JAXA space history. X
       2. Kepler-16 planetary system X

  •  Improvements (11) :
       1. Create your own mission.
       2.   Planetary System: Improved system (more realism (physics)).
       3.  Solar System and Alpha Centauri: More realistic (physics)
       4. Size personalization of bodies more realistic: Polar radius cannot be greater than the equatorial one but neither too small.
       5. Temperature setting in planet generation: Now it avoids user input errors.
       6.  Planet Atmosphere improved: Two more textures two chose making possible more combinations.
       7. GUI reduction: Equals have been deleted as they are not necessary (it is intuitive) and reduces the user view.
       8. Added two more shortcuts (z+p and z+m for camera).
       9.  Data/Info update.
     10. Efficiency improvements (more speed and less memory): Putting in practise my own system (it can be mainly noticed in the Solar System).
     11. Some errors corrected (Planet Generation (GUI and tilt) and Planetary Generation(GUI and tilt))  

  • Changes(2)
       1. Max camera distance have been increased in the Solar System so that there is more view of the planet and the satellites.
      2. Now it can be accelerated more as in that way it can be appreciated how the bodies interact between each other. 

Version 1.2
November 22, 2014

The most part of this new version has been finished (75% done). Here I leave you an image of the new Planet Generator:

Version 1.2
November 7, 2014

Many improvements have been done and many more are waiting to be done. Until the date, some visual errors have been corrected as well as improved physics. Also, now the application will try to avoid the user from making illogical errors.

Version 1.1
October 30, 2014

These are the new things of this version:

  •   New things (15) :
1.       ESA space history.
2.       Ganymede as new famous satellite.

4.       Alpha Centauri System.
5.       Titan orbiting Saturn in the Solar System recreation.
6.       Enceladus orbiting Saturn in the Solar System recreation.
7.       Tethys orbiting Saturn in the Solar System recreation.
8.       New formula in formulator.
9.       Atmospheric pressure added in planet generation what makes changes in the planet model.
10.   Basic atmosphere added in planet Earth.
11.   New tips and descriptions that are mostly focused in the formulator part.
12.   New resolution mode.
13.   Keyboard shortcuts.
14.   Possibility of illuminating in the famous planets and satellites like in the Solar system.
15.   Create your own mission (It is really basic so I will keep working on this part).

  •       Improvements (6) :
1.       Solar System: Saturn rings, less power required for processing, Jupiter, light and the Earth.
2.       Astronomical physics: Focused in orbits.
3.       Life system in planets: Now is taken into account the atmospheric pressure.
4.       Life description in planets: The descriptions have been improved.
5.       Small improvements in the application speed: Reprogramming some parts of the application allowed me to make small speed improvements.
6.       Other small errors (language, GUI display, data, letter, physics, details, light…). 

Version 1.1
September 6, 2014

The new version is finished. It will be revised, what will take some time, and then published.

Version 1.1
August 22, 2014

The new version is close to be finished. Up to the 75% is done. The rest 25% is focused in an experimental content that will be left uncompleted (It would be finished in a hypothetical 1.2 version).

Version 1.1
August 9, 2014

This image is from a new satellite introduced in the app. Can you guess which one it is?

Version 1.1
August 2, 2014

The update is going as predicted. The 45% of the version is done. New things have been added such as some short-cuts or tips.

Version 1.1
July 22, 2014

Since the new version was announced, new things have been done. However, all these new things are not going to be told until it is released, in order to give a surprise. Nevertheless, from time to time, i am going to announce specific improvements, as well as uploading some pictures.

Until the date, almost the 30% of the improvements have been done. Some of these, are related to the Solar System part, completing it, improving the physics and in realism and reducing the power that the computer needs to render some planets.
