Title: Planetary Formation setup
Post by abyssoft on 06/07/06 at 21:04:08

Well to put it mildly it's a bit large So I've list a link to it below it resides on my own servers.  It runs from 0 time until after 51 mil years it will take a long time to fully run it.  The last object set is added after 50 mil years but let the sim complete out another mil years to get a final setup.

Starting masses on all the bodies are between pluto and mercury in size.

small correction to the simulation setup

subtract 4361.112 earth mass from the starting star.

***
additional note a lower time step provides a more realistic view of what happens keeping mind that this will also increase the time needed for the sim to run to conclusion.

If you have the Beta of next version I recommend a DoEvents setting of 15-30 depending on the speed of your system and memory availability.  I personally use 25.

Working on a new setup for the next version of GSim.

if everything works right you may not have to do anything other then open it and let it run  ;D
