With Planet Builder, you are the architect of your own solar system. Build planets and moons, and choose their attributes such as name, size, orbit speed, spin speed, tilt, rings, orbit distance, and appearance. Watch them orbit in real-time 3D, creating trails behind them as they circle the sun.

Want to make things interesting? Press the asteroid attack button and watch as asteroids knock your planets out of orbit! Or, shoot asteroids at them yourself with the Asteroid Cannon.

Make your sun go Supernova and turn into a black hole, and suck all your planets in.

Increase or decrease the sun gravity, or activate Planetary Gravity, which gives each planet it's own gravitational field.

Or, start in Quick Start mode and enter our Solar System, with all 8 planets (and Pluto!) and their major moons, and the asteroid belt. High resolution textures and recent pictures of Pluto from the New Horizons space probe add an extra layer of realism.

Here's some ideas.

I think you're game is awesome but I think you could spice it up a little. First, I think you should add a save file. Second, I think you should add a feature were you pick a photo and it wraps around the planet making it look your photo. Third, you should add a space flight simulator to fly around your solar system. Fourth, this is one of my favorites! So all the solar systems you have saved are in a galaxy, and you can click on them to see them, also in your spaceship flight simulator you can drive to them. Fifth, you should add more planet/moon textures, for example, Mimas, Ceres, Jupiters moons, and much more. Sixth, this is the last one, when adding photos for your planet textures you should be able to add what you're planet looks at night, yup you can add city lights. Hope you took the time to read this and add it in your game, thanks.

Fun little game!

The graphics are pretty tight, the physics and Gravity is on the money, and the asteroid target practice is awesome. It's excellent when the sun's Gravity is maxed out, curving the trajectory of your roids for more challenging targeting. With such a great foundation, there is a lot of room for expansion in future updates (perhaps binary systems with each star playing for Gravity, user customizable planet scapes, close up world mode where you enter a sub game and build planets from core to mantle, to the and terrain). I definitely recommend this's a load of fun!!!

I have a lot of fun playing With this game’s Mechanics In till I ran
Out of textures So maybe just add ALOT and maybe add a Save file with A galaxy And maybe Add A Space ship That you can
Drive in Exploring You’re Solar system And you can add life to worlds and a Inside to the planets like Saturn,Jupiter,Uranus,Neptune And to the Rainbow Texture
And the purple texture or you can make a Surface to the textures like mountains And buildings if there is a Civilization
On that planet
Or you can destroy planets like Aliens Or Nukes Or A Rogue planet Or a Planet Collision And add more dead Reminats to stars like Nutron stars and White Dwarfs And And For the sun gravity and if there is negative gravity turn the black hole into a White hole and when you add moons you can add moons to them over all you should Download this Playground and Playaround 🌍 ‘s
