The Orbits (cont.)
We're going to change the current controller to PATH. Resist the temptation to press the 'make default' button, it can get you into all kinds of confusing messes if you don't know what you're doing. Press OK, and on the right, you'll see another menu rollout appear. Scroll your menu upwards if you can't see it all.
Here we can see a PICK PATH option. Select the first circle as the orbit, and press play. WOOHOO! Round she goes. Select the second planet, and do the same routine again, assigning a path controller, and picking the relevant orbit around the sun as the path. Do the same again for planets 3, 4 and 5.
If you've pressed play, you'll notice that the planets are all swinging around and reaching their start points at the same time. Of course, things wouldn't work that way in space. So, we need to fix that. Also, the moons aren't following. That's okay, we'll get to that.
