P0-A9: Part 857: Solar System Mechanics, Improvements

by on Jan.31, 2021, under Astral Realms, P-0, P0_A9, Software and Games, Spiritus Astrum

I have made some more improvements to the project, such as adding other network players to the ship radar systems, so that they can be intercepted, etc.

The next major goal is to add a day/night cycle to the planets in the solar system. I already have a day/night cycle on the planet surface itself, but the sun position and rotation is static in space.

I need to not only add the day/night cycle, but I need to make sure that it syncs with the planetside day/night cycle, so that landing on the day side and night side is consistent at all time.

I have also added realistic longitude and lattitude values for all of the planets, in the future, I intend to use this to add realistic region to be used for weather, climate, etc.
