Surface Simulation

807 bytes added, 1 year ago
The Elevation map of an object can currently be changed via impacts, which will create craters that will decrease the elevation in some areas of the surface, and material is excavated, and increase the elevation in other areas, as debris is deposited on the surface.
Elevation and Displacement are displayed using the following units:
* Milky Way Galaxy radius (milky way) = 5.5×10<sup>4</sup> light year
* Parsec (parsec) = 3.08568025×10<sup>16</sup> m
* Light-year (light year) = 9.46073047×10<sup>15</sup> m
* Astronomical Unit (AU) = 1.495978707×10<sup>11</sup> m
* Solar radius (sun) = 6.955×10<sup>8</sup> m
* Lunar distance (lunar dist) = 3.844×10<sup>8</sup> m
* Light-second (light sec) = 2.99792458×10<sup>8</sup> m
* Jupiter radius (jupiter) = 6.9911×10<sup>7</sup> m
* Earth radius (earth) = 6.37101×10<sup>6</sup> m
* Moon radius (moon) = 1.7371×10<sup>6</sup> m
* Kilometer (km) = 1000 m
* Meter (m) is the [ SI] base unit for length
* Centimeter (cm) = 0.01 m
* Millimeter (mm) = 0.001 m
