Solar System Prototype


This prototype was created during Phase Four, and is essentially a showcase and simulation of the full Solar System environment that DELTA-V will be set in as well as a code-based demonstration of how the orbital mechanics of each of the planetary bodies could work. Unlike the previous two prototypes there is no gameplay here, as this is literally just a simulation of the movement of a Solar System (massively miniaturized of course). The prototype was created to essentially demonstrate that the always-moving-orbital-based environment that DELTA-V is set in could actually work in code.
Fun fact: the rogue planet’s odd orbital path that narrowly misses another planet in the prototype was not done deliberately, and actually served as inspiration for the rogue planet event in the narrative of DELTA-V.
