The Solar Model is realtime modeling of solar system. It allows user to navigate in
space, to control time counting (speed-up time flow) and estimate real movement of
space bodies like planets, dwarf planets and moons. It also allows user to bind camera
to space objects (for example, you can look from Moon on Earth in real time flow).
Solar Model renders beautiful 3D space environment.
There are 2 video renderer: OpenGL and Direct3D9. This release also contain Configuration dialog that allows you to set up video driver, desired resolution, and some other rendering options. You can make screenshots with one click (Screenshot feature is new in this release).
There are also many implovements in 2.0 version:
- at last you may speed up camera movement speed :)
- totaly reworked GUI. Now all looks much pretty;
- improved asteroids looking. Now it renders as volumes with animation (like real space asteroids);
- added some info features -- shows current distance from the Sun, current time (yes, this release also set ups all planets to a REAL NOWADAYS positions and starts simulation from current date and time).
((and some more improvement you may read in changelog.txt inside ZIP-archive))
