Unity 3D Engine

Planets & Star(s)

The planets are made with a sphere 3D object. These have their own material, texture & lighting.


When you press the O-key on your keyboard, the orbits of each planet will show. This is made with a linerenderer based on the center (the Sun).


If you use the scrollwheel, you can change the velocity at which you travel through the Solar System. The velocity is measured in C. 1 C equals the speed of light in a vaccuum (in space).
