Default Planets - Update# 2, Cube-Shaped Planets

March 9th, 2014, 21:39
Cubical Drift talks about cube shaped planets, and gravity in the next game update.

Cube-shaped planets? What about gravity?

We have been asked a lot of questions about the gravity management on cube-shaped planets.

So, this is how it works : imagine a cube and divide it into 6 pyramids with the top of each pyramid joining at the center of the cube. The gravity will be uniform in each of these pyramids and in a direction perpendicular to the base of the pyramid.

Feel free to ask any questions you have left, we are here to answer them.
More information.

Heh… just imagine digging a tunnel along the edges of three pyramids, then droping something in it…

A physicist worth his salt should be able to build a perpetual motion machine along one of those edges.
