I've always took interest in space. And I love physics and I love Construct 2!
I've used my physics knowledge to make a few planets and give them gravitational or should I say force fields. They get stronger with less distance as IRL.
Everything is working fine EXCEPT I don't know how to make something "catch" orbit... ie if I fire an object with a certain speed and a certain distance from the planet how to retain the angular momentum around the planet and catch the orbit speed? I know it would eventually fall to the surface but still...
Thanks, have a good one.
You can use equations like the following if you're using physics equations
