Return to Mechanics.
Distance in DSP is given in Meters, AU (Astronomical Unit), and ly (Light Year).
However, in the game, these value differ from their real-world equivalents.
- 1 AU = 40 km
- 1 ly = 60 AU (= 2400 km)
From the Feb 26, 2021 Dev Log;
The basic unit of length on the game's planets had to be meters instead of kilometers. After several iterations, we finally set Icarus's height as 3m, vegetation height as 1m ~ 6m, and building height as 2m ~ 30m.
Planet diameter: 1D = 400m
Giant planet diameter: 4D = 1600m
Star radius: 1R ⊙ = 1600m
Radius of red giant: about 25 R ⊙ about 40000 m (HUGE!)
Astronomical unit: 1AU = 40000 m
Radius of planetary system: 1AU ~ 10au (according to the last development log)
The radius of Dyson sphere is 0.2au ~ 1AU
Light year: 1 LY = 60au
