Solar Model

Here is another very interesting Irrlicht Engine project: Solar Model. It is a relatime 3D solar system simulation where you can navigate in space and watch the planets.

The size and distance of the planets has intentionally not been set to physical correct relations, so that it makes it easy to navigate in space. It also looks very nice IMO because of that.

Now that is a cool idea!

The clouds layer on earth is amazing. I should do the Linux port again and send it back to the author…

This proves to those people that irrlicht has the potential to create good quality 3d applications. :-)

currently, i’m writing an engine powered by irrlicht which let a user to travel among randomly generated system. It’s in a very early stage
