FreeFall/Orbit satelitte simulator released!

in Mac Software edited January 2014
It's finally out, I guess soon in their minds means two and a half months

I really love physics and this is a great application. The calculations are as he said, "fantastically complex." It runs great on my G4/400 (15 to 20 FPS), I thought a G5 was needed to run it.

I would love to know the math involved. The path of the satellite must be influenced in an earth-moon-sun gravity relationship.

    Wasn't there a screensaver edition that wasn't a demo?

    There is apparently no FREE screensaver (that works beyond the annoyingly useless and obnoxious one you've no doubt seen just now).

    The app (which is good) includes the screensaver but it's not separate.

    I suspect marketing weasels decided against it being free? Dunno...

    I'm having problems even with the screensaver post-purchase.

    It stays zoomed in in all simulations. No varying camera angles. Grrr....

    You're right, the screensaver in the demo is useless.
