scratching our heads (again) about rotational dynamics
You know, in college I thought quantum mechanics was hard.  Pfft!  That's nothing compared to simulating rotating bodies.  Smile

High Frontier correctly simulates colonies where most of the mass is contained in one big rotating part.  However, systems with multiple big rotating parts — like two cylinders side-by-side — are not correctly simulated.

This is something we've wanted to handle correctly for a long time, and it has finally made it to the top of our to-do list.

We've just posted in a physics forum about it, but if there's anyone here who feels comfortable with kinetic energy and moments of inertia, please jump in wherever is convenient for you.  We really want to get this right!

Hola friends. My friends and I are tickled we heard the articles here. I’ve been scanning for this info for hours and I will be sure to tell my besties to swing on by. The other afternoon I was skipping through the top forums trying to locate the answers to my revolving questions. Now I am definately to take more risk in whatever avenues I can. We are getting all blurred out on the signs we are observing. Moreover, I just came back to thank you while I could for such stellar work. This has pushed me out of a tough situation. Many beautiful things are seeding in my world. Its really a safe forum to make new engagements. I need to share that I am studying. when you get a chance, check out my new Site:[color=#000_url]wedding mansion in georgia in Florida[/color]
