Seamless space zoom, orbits and sun

June 4, 2022

I further improved the space view:
Planets are now positioned around the center of the solar system and their orbits are rendered.
In addition to that I added a sun at the center of the solar system.

Instead of manually having to switch to the space view, one can now also just zoom out of the planet.
I made the transition between the planet and space view as seamless as possible and am quite happy with the result:

There’s also been changes to the different overlays / views.
Previously the Planet was the ‘base’ view, with others (Space, Planner, …) rendered as overlay. This was confusing and caused unnecessary render calls.
There’s now a clear distinction between Views (Planet, Space, Planner, …) and Overlays (Item select, Structure select, …).
