Planet 5

Now we move on to our Gas Giant, with its intricate moon orbits. Create the first two orbits as normal. Make the first orbit 55 units with a moon 4 units, and the second orbit 115 units, with a moon 8 units in size.

To create our third moon, it's the same procedure we used when adding a moon orbit to our third planet. Zoom in to the second moon on planet5, and using the second moon as the centre, create an orbit 35 units in size. On the right of that, add a moon 3 units in size.

Sound strange? Have a look at the diagram if you get a little lost.

It's really just a solar system within a solar system, if you think about it. I've provided another file at this stage, if you'd like to use mine instead of continuing with your own, or you got lost along the way, or the computer exploded and you lost all your work. It's called Solarsystem3.max.

Featured Flash FLA

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
