Just some questions about GS
06/04/06 at 00:49:15
 
How would you generate a set of retro grade objects?
 
What happens with -Ecc and -Inc
How is -mass handled, what about -diam.
and of course -a
 
*side note* I really wish there was a way to store custom colors, it's a bit of a bother to have to redo them each time, I tend to use a standards set for all my sims.

Ok I saw in another post to create a set of retrograde set theta to >=180 and less then 360.
 
And played with the rest, and figured I would in part answer my own questions  Roll Eyes
 
-Mass appears to completely futz with large masses >.1 Sol in close proximity <0.1 Lyr to a non -mass (+1 Sol), I expected the  +mass object to be quickly ejected but rather it just went completely wonky even @ timestep 32. Smaller -masses behave like normal masses with verry little noticable variation. At stellar distances >1 Lyr this doesn't appear to happen and sim runs smoothly.
 
+/- Ecc sets Appear to also apply to the Direction of the object path, + pro, - retro.
 
-Diam appears such that with a -density and no true surface there could be no collision as the object Resides outside of Normal space but within a coformed Brane.  it would have a standard grav effect without being able to truely be seen, acting like Darkmatter.
 
-a Doesn't seem to exist and is Resolved to +a

I use the standard Windows dialog box for color.  You're right.  Your custom colors are not saved.  I wish they were too.
 
I haven't played around with negative values in the fields that shouldn't support them.  The program allows you to do this simply because I don't error-check your input for negative values for things such as mass.  No need to through.  If you want to experiment with hypothetical negative-mass objects, there's no reason to prevent you.  I imagine that if one object >> is much more massive than the other, the less-massive object will orbit just like normal, but I've never tried it.
 
I'm glad you figured out the retrograde orbits.  Although its probably more correct to say that a retrograde orbit has an inclination >90 and < 270, as an object whose inclination 359 would be very prograde, and an object whose inclination is 179 would be very prograde.
