Small bug-fix posted

I was tinkering around with Chunky Orbits and noticed a dumb mistake I left in the last update. Grabbed chunks weren't releasing correctly if the player had rotated using the right stick. Should be working properly now.

Working on a few small additions and tweaks this weekend, too.

Version 1.1 is live - new movement option

I've added a new option for moving around the Chunky Orbits sim. It's very similar to classic first person shooter controls. You can move with the left touchpad or thumbstick, and rotate with the right. Modify your direction by pointing your left hand. Press in on the pad/stick to move faster.

I still like the funky 'accordion' style movement from previous versions, but several users have requested something a little more familiar. You can use either method, they are both available at all times.

Other changes include some small adjustments to the main menu and an update to Unity engine v 5.6. See the ChangeLog for the full list.

Thanks to everyone who's supporting my indie dev efforts by buying my stuff! Please let me know if I broke anything.

“For anyone interested in the mechanics of space or gravity, this is a fascinating and fun experience. Watching white dwarfs suck moons and asteroids towards them is brilliant fun and never gets old.”

About This Game

Get up-close and personal with Gravity.

Chunky Orbits is a simulation of free-floating objects in space based on real life physics. Each object in the scene attracts each of the others in a cosmic tug-of-war that we call Gravity. Toss out a few boulders and contemplate the wonders of the Universe.

Check out the Screenshot and Video pages to see what's new.

Fill your Universe with a collection of cosmic chunks: boulders, white dwarfs, comets, and chunky fireballs. Add some trails to your rocks to trace their paths. Or bust out the sparkly photon cannon - a delete button with a kick! It's a big physics based playground. Create a random cluster of boulders and watch as they collect into larger, chunky groups. Launch a super-massive White Dwarf and observe how it affects the other bodies in the system. Create a small 'solar system' and see how many chunks you can get into orbit.

It's your Universe. Do What You Want. (^_^)

There are two versions of the sim. You can pilot a simple spaceship through the void with your gamepad or go full roomscale with your Vive wands or Oculus Touch controllers. The roomscale version features a new kind of 'pinch and pull' movement that makes it easy to move around in 3D space. This isn't a game - more like a physics-based toy. Might even be educational. It certainly gave me a new appreciation for how Gravity works.
