Gravity Field Simulation

  1. Mar 1, 2009 #1
    Looking for feedback on a simulation I created to show how using a displacement field can be used for simulating gravity on a large and small scale.

    http://www.kademco.com/psim/psim.html [Broken]

    Click multiple times to create points of mass. Each point you add "pinches" the field. There are no point-point relationships here. The points are influenced by the field using a pressure vector derived from the field.

    Click and drag to create points with initial velocity.

    Try leaving the settings as is for a bit. Some interesting formations appear.

    Let me know what you think.
