OT: Waste time; Play God; Create a Solar System

Submitted by Space Coyote on April 8th, 2014 at 8:18 PM

You can now try your hand at playing God and creating a Solar System. Waste anywhere between minutes and hours witnessing how awful you are at forming a system of stars and planets.


Would like it more if you could go beyond 2 AU and if you could throw comets in there, along with different sizes of various planets. Maybe in future iterations.

All that is missing from this is the aspect that gave me enjoyment in "Spore", where I could not only fiddle with a solar system but allow a warrior-like race of platypus-type creatures to evolve and eventually take over their local stellar neighborhood. It was fun all the same though - indeed, I have a solar system nearly at the 500 year limit (if it is a limit) at the moment.

If I could play this on my smartphone I'd be building my very own Star Wars galaxy as we speak, but alas, I am in the bed and the computer is allll the way across the room. Building Coruscant will have to wait.

until you add a dense fat guy to the mix, then it all goes to hell pretty quickly. Must be a lesson in there somewhere.

down to a science for years now. 

The other parts?   Not so much.

I should be calling it a night now, but between trying my hand at solar systems and watching the start of the Tigers @ Dodgers game, well, sleep be damned.
