Free Planets MPL3D Solar System 1.0 Software

Filed under: Software — Tags: , — Donnette E Davis @ 11:24 am


This tool will take a random trip around 10,000 stars of our galaxy, and it will be different each time you run it. Trips will orbit stars at a 5 light years of distance from them, increasing then to 100 light years away from them. As the demo runs, it will take you to further stars, including famous stars, stars with planets, multiple systems and variable stars with real data. Each frame in the simulation equals to one day of time.

Although camera is automatic, you still can control it with mouse movement, but only when orbiting a star (that is when not “travelling” to a star).

Other controls are: “L” – Changes language between english and spanish.

“M” – Turns music on/off. “F” – Shows maximum frames per second at screen top-left.

“Esc” – Press escape to quit. Star names and data appear and disappear at random. It needs DirectX 9.0c installed, and it is better run with 1024×768 resolution. Turn out the lights and enjoy!

“MPL3D Solar System – Starfield Tech Demo” is a executable preview of “MPL3D Solar System” itself.
