Oct 13 Beta issues

Something's definitely not right with the new beta.
 
I tried creating a belt between 0.58 and 1.74 AU, and another belt between 2.7 and 5.3 AU(I made sure the distribution setting was right each time) and got the graph below instead.
 
It looks like the inner belt is much thinner and starts closer to the sun (it ends within 1.5 AU), and the outer belt starts at near 7 AU and goes all the way out to about 14 AU.

That's because there was a typo in the code.  I just fixed it and uploaded it again.  It has the same filename, so just re-download it.

Trying it out now... looks a lot more like what I expected. I'll post a graph later.

I wonder if GravSim allows to pan ?  
It's possible to center on any given object , but is it also possible to translate the whole screen to left or right ?  
I come up with this question as I want to study the behaviour of a ring system in detail aroud a saturn like planet .

You can pan away from the Sun.
The right button on Graphics Options does this.  Click it, and then click where you want the center of the screen to be.
 
This feature only works if the "Focus Object" is the 1st object in your simulation.
