36831 Do you think the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram will ever be incorporated into this software? Maybe. We don't know. 36831 Or even a feature where we actually get to see what the planets' interiors look like? Relatively pointless. Vlad said that he wants an H-R diagram in the program at some poin...

Nevermind me having taken an older version on my laptop when I looked at this earlier, the observation about luminosities vs. age/mass/metallicity still holds even in the latest: the star here should have about (depending on the model employed to simulate this) 2.9-3.0 Lsun...

Evolution of the Solar System

The evolution of the Sun (a typical MS star) itself isn't too hard to model, and there are multiple, mutually consistent, scientific models on it - see my post  here . The bigger issue is, of course, the evolution of the planetary system itself, which we don't know too much about beyond very broad g...

There should be a timelapse feature to show the full evolution of the Solar System from protostar to white dwarf, complete with continental drift on Earth. Your posts are beginning to lean into spam. Vlad himself wants this one day himself, you don't need to keep repeating that you want these thing...
