Distance to You

From Universe Sandbox Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Distance to You property of an object represents the simulated distance between the object and the virtual camera through which the user views the simulation. Distance to You is a read-only property, and will change as the user moves the camera through the simulation, or as the object moves relative to the camera position.

Property Details[edit | edit source]

Location[edit | edit source]

The Distance to You property can be found at the end of the first section in the Overview tab, and at the end of the Camera Relative section of the Motion tab. For Galaxy Nebula objects, the Distance to You property is located at the end of the Motion section of the Nebula tab. For Galaxy objects, the Distance to You property is located near the end of the Properties section of the Galaxy tab, and refers specifically to the Distance to You property of the Black Hole.
